I’ve been using Gobbler for a couple weeks now. I primarily use it to back up the sample libraries I’m creating.
So far I’m impressed. It’s very simple to use and seems to be fast enough for what I need it for. Gobbler is different from Dropbox or other backup and sharing services, it’s just audio,
I’m very impressed by their support. I asked a few questions on Twitter and they responded immediately. They assured me that unlike Time Machine and other backup software, Gobbler doesn’t get in the way of your DAW. Backups happen in the background but only when your DAW is inactive or if Gobbler is the active window. Smart.
Compatible with most major DAW software and file types

If you sign up now you get 50GB free. It’s very easy to get an extra 10GB just by using Gobbler. After June 27th the new signups will only get 25GB free (which is still very generous). When the beta program ends you get to keep your 50GB and affordable paid subscriptions for much more space will be available.
Use this link to sign up which will get me more space. http://www.gobbler.com/i/YggCH2
It’s Mac only at the moment but the PC version is coming soon. Sign up now to ensure your 50GB. Give it a try, you will like it.
There is no doubt of the importance of backing up your audio data. Sadly for some it is a second thought and man can it bite you if your drive breaks. This seems good for those who have a DAW connected to the internet. I have also recently discovered the Integral SATA copy station that copys a SATA compatible drive (i.e. your system drive is a good idea) so if it breaks you can literally fling a new drive in your computer and off you go. (as long as you back up the drive after you have installed all your DAW and other software)
