Is there a basic online DAW that my friend in another city and I can use to collaborate on music? We want to do an album in 24 hours, and we're looking for a site where we can upload parts of audio tracks we are working on and do basic editing on them.

I had assumed that there must be several sites like this, but I've spent a while looking and the few that I found are too limited for our use. We need to be able to edit audio clips (cut, paste) and then place those clips with reasonable precision on a timeline, so that we can build songs. It'd be great if we could both be working on one song file at the same time, google docs style. Don't care about MIDI, virtual instruments, effects, or canned samples/loops. It'd be nice to be able to export the audio when we're done, but even that's not essential, because I can capture audio off the web. Thanks

Mantis at Indabamusic.com might fit the bill. (I've never used it myself, and I'm not sure how far the free demo will take you.)

The Ohm Force guys have been working on something for a while, there is a beta here, but I’ve never used it.

I send Pro Tools tracks back in forth all the time, not hard at all. I’ve never had or understood the need for the online part (which is why I’ve never tried the ohmstudio beta), it’s just not the way I work.

Ah, Ohm Force is what I was looking for. Thanks to all for their suggestions.
