Yup. What I was suggesting was not really "real-time" collaboration, though.
More like "here, I got this mono track of some drum loops that I think
accentuate the theme nicely - see what you can do with them", then I take a
listen, and composite some nice noisy synth sounds over them. This is the
type of collaboration I am talking about.
So, you have basically "Source Tracks" and "Composites" where source tracks
have a particular author, and composite tracks have a group of authors. Once
"Composites" are in a state everyone likes, they could then become "Source"
tracks providing a platform to build from. Eventually the composition gets
to the point where it cannot progress further, everyone is happy and it is
marked "Final". Then it could be reviewed and what not, showed off to
friends, burned to a CD, have graphics added, whatever.
Basically an iterative process to making music, just not with people in the
same room =)
There is an alternative method
