Re: Native Instrument Audio 2 sound card now works Iphone/Ip

Wasn't the previous version already called Traktor Audio 2? The one I own (at least 5 years old) is called "Audio 2 DJ". According to (http://tapeop.com/reviews/gear/83/traktor-audio-2-audio-interface/) "Traktor Audio 2 is the same box as Audio 2 DJ and has the same specs." it has been renamed to "...

Backup of a music collection on the cloud

Hello,

Do you think it's possible to backup a music collection on the cloud : itunes match, google music, amazon cloud player, dropbox,

How many songs can you backup ?

How much does it costs ?

Is it possible to synchronize that is saving only new music and metadata changes ?

Regards,
DJMan
