Dawn of the Cloud DAW Era

Audiotool is a kick-ass online music production studio that eliminates the need of a muscular computer to process all of your virtual instruments and FX, because all the processing happens in the cloud!
Sounds like a futuristic science fiction deal, right? Well, it's pretty real, and it's becoming more and more popular, especially because it's FREE. All tracks, samples and presets are also stored on the Audiotool servers so you never need to worry about backing up anything. Sounds too good to be true, huh?
Well, I gave it a shot and I had a very interesting loop going on in just minutes.  I can see the limitations (such as not being able to run your own VST's), but those limitations can actually result in increased creativity.  The workflow is very good and easy to get used to, especially if you're into actual hardware and mixers, as all connections are made mimicking that of real gear.  There are ins and outs that you visually plug in/out.  Overall I was very impressed with the experience and instant creative factor of Audiotool.
The website also allows you to Publish your finished track straight from the app to the Audiotool website, SoundCloud, Youtube or Facebook.  In fact, if you want to get a real preview of what this app is able to do for you check out the "charts" with some of the best tracks produced by the Audiotool online community--trully impressive and inspiring.  Check out this track:
Audiotool works so nicely that I'm surprised I didn't find much more competition for cloud audio production. Have you? Do you like the idea of cloud audio production? Let me know what you guys think!
