Any plans for iCloud integration? Would people be interested in that?

Post by LeftyChris » Mon Jan 18, 2021 9:04 am

One thing about using iOS music software that has surprised me is the way a lot of simple apps make use of iCloud as the default file storage option (a number of simple audio and MIDI recording apps do this) but, as far as I know, no iOS DAW uses iCloud in this way.

Perhaps integrating iCloud with a DAW is more difficult - I don’t know. It sure would be useful, though. All changes made to a file would be instantly accessible from all devices.

I am curious, are there any plans to add iCloud integration to MTS? I realize that the current way to backup MTS projects by sending them as ZIP files and then opening them on another device is already quite efficient, but figured I’d throw iCloud out there as an idea anyway.

Would people be interested in this? Just curious. On the Audiobus forum people don’t seem that enthusiastic about iCloud, but I can’t imagine I’m the only one who thinks it is a good idea for iOS music apps and DAWs, in particular.

There are currently no plans for that.
I'm not sure it would work well with huge (audio) projects. And it wouldn't work on Windows.

Thank you for your response, Giel. Your comment about it not working on Windows made me realize that I should have clarified that I was asking about iCloud integration for MTS for iPad, not for MTS for Mac. Since iCloud is already, in effect, just another storage location on a Mac (from the user’s perspective), further iCloud integration on Macs would be unnecessary. But on iPad it would be quite useful.
