Soundcloud?

Postby chibear » Tue Jul 25, 2017 6:59 am

There's been a lot of chatter on other forums during recent weeks concerning the viability of Soundcloud.

Even if this is all smoke, it is probably a good idea to diversify just to keep options open. I'm gradually going to start throwing duplicates up on YouTube even though at this point it doesn't seem to generate as much interest as SC.

I've heard Bandcamp is supposed to be pretty good. Any others that you use either as a listener or composer that you think will provide decent exposure?

Would that be financial viability or by being inaccessible on the www?

It seems to me that a while back SC let folks know that they might be going totally Euro (or something like that) which would leave North and South America in the lurch. I'm guessing that it's because of US copyright lawyers and licensing lobbyists are vying to get as large a share of the 'labeled' music revenue as they possibly can, e.g., by cutting off SC access completely if possible.

Anyway, that's my take on it. I'd love to be wrong and if someone else knows for sure it'd be nice to know.

Bandcamp is useless for exposure unless you have a big fan base who can be directed to the site, to purchase your music.

I've been on BC for a few years and so far have had very little feedback, but having an account there is just part of the process of being heard.

I'm considering dumping my SoundCloud account and going over to YouTube as a main source of exposure as its unlimited and better quality.

Don't have a dog in that fight but also check out Reverbnation and CD Baby.
