Here is a fictional example of how it all comes together:1. Jimmy (from San Francisco, California) records a sound file of him playing guitar and uploads it to UniSong. This is his recorded guitar track:2. While listening to sound files within the database on the UniSong App, Connor from Tokyo, Japan finds the guitar track recorded by Jimmy. He likes it and decides to record a bass track to layer on top of Jimmy’s guitar part. He then uploads the new file with both him and Jimmy playing into the database, using the UniSong App. This is Jimmy’s guitar track combined with Connor’s bass track:3. Paul (from London, England) is browsing through his UniSong app and comes across the file of both Jimmy and Connor playing. He likes what he hears and decides to record a drum track to accompany the guitar and bass tracks. He then uploads it to UniSong and this is the final product they created: Albero Berul, UniSong 11/3/12
My drummer and I from back home have done a project thatessentially applies this same concept.We recorded tracks separately on our own time in differentlocations. He then sent me the tracks he recorded and Imixed all the tracks together.We then made a music video for the song...

…Continued There is a movement called Playing For Change, which is very similar to this whole concept - “Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music.” See a video of what the movement is about here This is, in a nutshell, what I aspire to do with my app, but I want more people to be able to use it Albero Berul, UniSong 11/3/12
There is an app currently in theapp store called “AutoRap”,created by Smule. The look ofUniSound would be similar to it.Click here to see. Where you would browse for beats in “AutoRap”, you would browse for tracks (drum beats, chord progressions, bass lines, etc…) in UniSong. Instead of talking or rapping, you would record your track within the collaborative song. Albero Berul, UniSong 11/3/12
Ultimately, this app should provide musicianswith the tools to help fellow musicians learnto work together, inspire each other, connectwith each other and communicate throughthe universal language of music.Music brings people together, transcendingthe boundaries that society creates. Ifmusicians can remotely collaborate, thereare no limitations to what can happen.The plan is for this app to be free and to runand be compatible on Android and Appleproducts, such as mobile devices, iPads/Tablets, and computers as well. This willallow as many musicians as possible toutilize this extraordinary app. Albero Berul, UniSong 11/3/12
