Well apparently the new COO and CEO are the guys that were brought in to turn Vimeo around, which sounds interesting, given that vimeo had no clue what it wanted to be, and now it's pretty well established albeit very niche (mainly film producers, directors, writers etc).

The problem though is that as you point out, there's several other competitors who are doing what soundcloud should have done...for free.

heartthis is so much less buggy, cleaner and straightforward. Aside from it's stupid name, it's got everything going for it.

Lets see if anything actually changes, but I think it'll end up burning through it's financing and the carcass being sold off for a huge loss for someone to pick the bones of.

so... is Soundcloud worth using still? I let my pro account lapse over a year ago and am debating whether or not to renew again.

Depends on what you think "worth using" means, really. It's good for hosting files and easy to use, but not much else. They don't really promote you unless you're already big, nor is there much of community feel or updates. They're claiming to roll out "Soundcloud Premier" at some point, which I guess is something similar to the monetization options on YouTube, but who knows if that'll ever actually happen.

Aye fair enough. I'm still thinking hearthis.at is the better option for sharing, and the pro account seems much cheaper. Their API for linking and/or streaming services isn't as universally supported though.

The people have spoken

Upload limits are not changing on Monday


From Soundcloud..

For the last 12 years, SoundCloud has been the destination for millions of artists around the world like you to upload, share and find what’s next in music. Our mission is to empower you with the best tools to build and grow your career on your own terms, and to foster a community where creativity can thrive.

Earlier this week, we announced our intention to change our upload limit. We’ve spent the last few days since the announcement listening to you, learning from what you’ve said, and reflecting about what makes SoundCloud special as an open platform that helps creators of all types express themselves.

And we heard you. We’ve decided not to roll out the change to our free upload limits, and will continue to refine our balance of free and paid offerings to make the platform as creative and accessible as possible while building a sustainable business.

We’re excited for what’s ahead. We have a strong roadmap of new features, products and updates for you. And we’ll continue to gather support and feedback from you, the community of creators who have helped build SoundCloud into what it is today.

Audio quality is still absolute garbage, as is the app.
