Despite the physical size of the prize, we can tell you that this week’s Gobbler’s Favorite Things is going to be a biggie!
We’ve teamed up with Focusrite to offer you the new professional 2 in, 4 out portable USB audio interface, Forte ($749 MSRP).
Forte features two remote-controlled mic preamps which are in fact the same mic pre’s that’s featured in Focusrite’s top-flight RedNet range. This super portable and super awesome interface is built into a solid aluminum case, features a color OLED display with touch controls and a single large control knob.
The ability to record your tracks from anywhere and then back your pristine project up to Gobbler, makes the Forte one of Gobbler’s Favorite Things!

Gobbler has announced the release of a PC Client for its purpose-built cloud designed for digital media creators.
Previously available for Mac and iOS, Gobbler is now available to more than 1.6 billion PC users worldwide, allowing them to optimize their cloud-based experience.
Gobbler is already utilized by more than 40,000 media creators including artists, musicians, pro audio engineers and producers. Gobbler, which is one of the fastest and most reliable file transfer technologies, places the power of the cloud in the hands of digital media creators. Gobbler scans all drives, catalogs the location of all audio in addition to automatically updating changes made to files and can send files of any size to anyone.
Now, media creators using a PC have the ability to set Gobbler to monitor and automatically back-up a project with a collaborator and send the entire project and all its associated files securely and quickly. Similar to Gobbler for Mac and iOS, it automatically catalogs all media project types even if they were not previously backed-up. Receiving projects in Gobbler is faster and more secure than the traditional transfer methods media creators are accustomed to, such as FTP or email.
“We’re striving to make media collaboration easier for as many people as possible, said Chris Kantrowitz, founder and CEO of Gobbler. “We already have a loyal following of Mac users who turn to Gobbler, and with the launch of PC, we see a vast opportunity to provide a purpose-built cloud solution that gives media creators a powerful way to share their most valuable assets – their projects.”
Additionally, Gobbler announced new pricing terms to coincide with the launch of the PC client, providing users with additional account space and holding prices constant. New users can opt for 5GB monthly of free storage or select one of four tiers ranging from 20GB ($4 monthly) up to 250GB ($30 monthly). All current paid subscribers will be bumped up to the new GB levels Gobbler is launching.
Sign up before August 6th, 2012 for your free 5GB account.
Gobbler has recently released version 0.9.9.7 of its software client, offering various improvements to the backup, transfer, and organizational tool for managing audio project files and assets.
We just released Gobbler V 0.9.9.7 of the client into the wild and there are some pretty sweet new features, improvements, and bug fixes. V.0.9.9.7 features a brand new project scanner, which means that Gobbler will detect and find projects and files faster than ever before. The new build recognizes Ableton 8.3 and Sonic Studio SoundBlade projects and has a number of improvements and bugfixes that we think you’ll dig…
Changes in Gobbler v0.9.9.7
New & improved scanner detects projects and files faster than ever before!
Ableton 8.3 project support.
Project details window now allows users to open individual files within the latest revision of projects with a simple double- or right-click.
Bugfixes and Improvements:
When upgrading to this version of a Gobbler, a few backed-up projects may be updated onto the cloud. However, this will not cause additional usage of quota.
Fixed a crash when Gobbler was quit right after deleting a cloud-only project.
Fixed an issue where Gobbler used to hang when a project was deleted from disk during upload.
Fixed a few issues with special characters.
Fixed an issue where files with colon (:) characters in them were not openable via Gobbler.
Software update now launches when necessary without having to be logged in.
Added better messaging in the Transfers window to reflect out-of-quota and network errors.
Gobbler recognizes and doesn’t scan Time Machine backup locations.
Gobbler now runs in 64-bit mode on 64-bit Macs.
When Gobbler is idle, it uses less CPU.
When set to “Min” throttle mode, backups now start after 2 hours of user inactivity (up from 3 minutes).
The Gobbler client software is available for Mac OS X 10.5 or higher (Intel only). A Windows PC version of the client is currently in beta.
Gobbler has announced the release of its mobile app for iOS.
Gobbler for iOS allows you to manage your Gobbler account remotely. If you use Gobbler as part of your audio production workflow you will love this app as you will now be able to send projects while you are away from your computer.
Gobbler for iOS features

Remote file access: Access your files that have been backed up to Gobbler from wherever you are.
Remote file transfers: Transfer files directly from your Gobbler account using the mobile application.
No limits on transfer size or file types: Whatever your file size or type, Gobbler can send it.
