Byta offers a higher level of security when sharing audio files and streams.
When used solely to send audio files, Generic File Services like Dropbox, WeTransfer, or Box contribute to disorganised desktops, missing information in iTunes/music libraries and hard drives filled with poorly labelled music files. Music sharing can quickly become chaotic and time-consuming.
Include Smart Attachments when you Share music links in the format your recipients need, lossy or lossless. Byta supports FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, WAV, AAC and MP3 file formats. Choose to upload your lossless audio file and then share it in the required format.
Byta is unrivalled in taking advantage of audio files' unique properties. You can use Byta as a metadata editor, as it can read and write audio file metadata, including ID3 tags and WAV tags. Byta converts file formats on the fly and delivers fast yet secure streaming when you need to share music.
Sharing audio files with Byta is fast, simple, and more secure than private SoundCloud links. Ideal when coordinating your pre-release music promotion.
Byta’s offers you a highly secure and simple alternative to using WeTransfer or any other type of link when you need private music streaming.
For years the music industry has relied on “Music Promotion” or “Watermark Promotion Services” for private audio sharing of pre-release music to internal and external partners. *Watermark Promotion Services have never offered features as fast, flexible or secure as Byta does when sharing with either Protected Links or using Direct Share.
