Jim, just out of curiosity, after turning us all on to SoundCloud (I never heard of it until you mentioned it), you seem to have abandoned it in favor of DropBox. Care to comment?
I like Soundcloud, and it's almost perfect for what we do at TOTM.
But I was nearing my usage limit for the free service, and upgrading is sort of expensive. I would have done it - but I also need a cloud based storage system for other purposes, including sharing PDFs of music, playlists, charts and backing up files.
Dropbox lacks the elegant music player that Soundcloud offers, but it can be used for all these other functions, as well, and the cost for virtually unlimited storage is modest. So for me it's strictly an economic decision; instead of subscribing to multiple services for different cloud functions, Dropbox provides everything I need for one modest monthly price.
YouTube is a fine alternative for TOTM participants. But I find that it takes more work to produce a good recording - you have to worry about how it looks, as well as how it sounds - and the audio quality when I record video with my iPhone or iPad isn't as good as when I use my Zoom H2n MP3 recorder and produce audio-only files.
That's my reasoning, but your mileage may vary.
