What is Power Music Box?

Power Music Box Banner3Power Music Box is cloud storage which is used for integrating all editions of Power Music.

It is unique in that it does not simply store files, like DropBox and others, but instead stores the content and metadata (authors, categories, titles, etc) of each ‘song’ in Power Music.

We get many questions about the Box, so this article will put together the information from the Power Music Box website to give a comprehensive explanation of what the Box is and how to use it.
