the copyright protection system seems a bit off, i've had a few of my own things blocked for allegedly being tracks they sound nothing like. apparently one of my tracks contained:

four months pass...

i've got spambots liking and reposting my tunes -- is this normal? is there something i should be doing to avoid this? it's really obvious that they are not real people.
i don't care if people listen to my stuff or not, so i'm not like actively promoting anything on there. it's just a storage/delivery system. i don't want to look like an idiot who only has spam friends, but more than that i want to not receive any more robot posts. help!

dang why is there so much spamming on soundcloud? i can't post anything without a shirtless brazilian man who is unknown to me liking it and then offering me "real soundcloud followers"
do i really have to block them all individually?

i think i worked out how to avoid spam likes: publish your track as private, wait until the coast is clear of shirtless skrilltards then go to the track's edit page by clicking the little pencil icon and change the settings to public

I just don't know why they don't just make Soundcloud better overall. There's so much potential for a really great music-based social network with customisable designs, video options, seller options, radio playlists. I know Bandcamp offers a lot of this, but I don't feel like they're quite there yet with the community aspect either.

All that sounds terrible, cluttered, busy

Community aspect works well as it is I think

anvil, Wednesday, 9 April 2014 08:23 (three years ago) Permalink

It would only be cluttered if it were made so. I'm thinking back to the days when people could meet and collaborate on MySpace and the way you can fall down rabbit holes on Wikipedia etc (but with music). Soundcloud's Easyjet aesthetic doesn't seem to make this happen when I go on it. Also their Android app is useless.

oh right. hadn't noticed. I take it you have to pay to get extra features? Not sure if it's changed since I last did this but it feels like whenever I land on a SC page, I find I have trouble getting any more information about what I'm listening to other than the artist name and their location. Sometimes there are a few notes about the track, but I just feel like there could be more to it. Could you point me to an example of a good soundcloud page?

Maybe I'm missing something here, but from the looks of it that link looks very much like the other Soundcloud pages I've visited. Generic orange and white layout, no artist information, no links to further listening, not to mention those ugly unnecessary waveforms instead of a nice-looking player option. I don't see any social network stuff (other than the 'HELL YEAH!' comments which are probably 50% spam) , no video content, no way for the artist to promote their work within the Soundcloud universe (as opposed to linking to their account from other areas like FB/Twitter that is). Or am I not looking hard enough?

I wouldn't say that. Often I get sent to a Soundcloud or Bandcamp page, listen to a track, like it, and then I'm like 'now what?'.

The facilities are there, but it's up to acts to make use of them. I'm fully used to seeing press releases appended to tracks and sets, with a bio on the left hand column, where there should also be links to the act's other social media presences: FB, Twitter, YouTube, Bandcamp, Instagram etc.

I still think the whole thing looks rather ugly and inflexible. All the pages look exactly the same, there's little in the way of design options. The comments section is mostly just people going 'This is good'. It's good that there's a small section for an artist bio, but I just think they could do more with what they have, make the whole experience more self-contained. It just feels a bit bare-bones to me when you could have this whole universal music service where artists can share and collaborate with each other, link to other stuff they like, and where fans can spend hours discovering new artists and create their own customised areas which they can then share with their friends etc...

1 pONO 3v3Ry+h1n G!!!1 (dog latin), Wednesday, 9 April 2014 11:46 (three years ago) Permalink

It does all the above - and the "barebones approach" facilitates this! the page i linked above, of the commenters nearly all will have pages of their own with great stuff things on. And you see the same people from that first page on other pages - exactly the definition of community. Those people didnt get there by accident

And doing it this way where you have to find for yourself means you dont get bombarded by nonsense recommendations you just see what people you follow comment on or like

ie what makes soundcloud good is the fact that soundcloud, mostly, stays out the way

anvil, Wednesday, 9 April 2014 12:00 (three years ago) Permalink

Totally agree. Play a track, go to the act's main profile page (while the track keeps playing), look for their re-posts or likes (RHS of profile page), see who they're following, etc. Or play a track, click on the re-post count, see who's re-posted it (generally this will be fans), go to their profile, see what else they've re-posted etc. Forget the comments - there are plenty of other ways to jump around. And personally I'd rather have a clean, easy-to-follow standard interface than a hideous quasi-Myspace cludge - and in any case, most self-managed acts are busy enough maintaining all their separate-but-interlinked points of presence, without feeling obliged to take on more design work.

mike t-diva, Wednesday, 9 April 2014 12:10 (three years ago) Permalink

I only use it as a storage system. If you want to know more (and you don't, but let's imagine you did), that's what my tumblr is for. I don't have enough songs for bandcamp yet. When I do, I'll collect the good (lol) stuff there.

Mayor Manuel (La Lechera), Wednesday, 9 April 2014 12:16 (three years ago) Permalink

Sorry, but that's just not true.

Agree that MySpace was hideous in many respects. I just wish the Soundcloud site let artists customise their pages a bit beyond what is there. I've never seen the aspects Miketd is talking about. Is that paid accounts only? I've got, like, three Soundcloud accounts and I don't think I was aware you could use it in the way you mention but I'll give it a go tonight and see how that pans out.

What I'm saying is though, why have a Tumblr and a Facebook and a Twitter and a Spotify presence and whatnot when you could have everything all contained in one place specifically for music and music fans? Obv it would take a while to replace all these different media, but none of the above methods seem to be designed with the promotion and enjoyment of music in mind. As an amateur musician and promoter I always feel like I'm struggling to use things like Facebook to promote my sounds because there are restrictions on, say, who you can invite to an event. Everything seems to have to be hosted from outside and it's just an unwieldy bit of kit for the job. An all-encompassing music service with its own social network function (plus the ability to integrate easily with Tumblr, Facebook &c) would be awesome, and I still don't believe the existing options are quite there yet.

1 pONO 3v3Ry+h1n G!!!1 (dog latin), Wednesday, 9 April 2014 13:18 (three years ago) Permalink

i looooove the self-contained nature of soundcloud, and how it's focused on the audio. so glad that artists can't make general status updates (unless they record a message!) or spam their followers...there are enough places to do that, and i like that it's straight-forward and a little opaque.

like anvil said, it's easy to add links to other places in your profile, although i'm not sure you can do it with a free account. i've definitely made more connections and had the most fun/success on SC compared to any other network, there's just too much noise on fb/twitter/tumblr/etc.

Bandcamp feels more a proper shop that happens to let you stream the music rather than a streaming platform

agreed, which is both good and bad. Bandcamp is probably more important in the long run, but if you're starting from an audience of zero and you put something up on BC, chances are it's just going to rot out there. on SC there's a much better chance of people finding it (through followers/likes/reposts etc).

worst thing about bandcamp is the way it looks (overwhelmingly rectangular, hard to make page look attractive (which ok yes it's all about the music but every ingredient of first impressions matter when you're flitting through 15 random bands an hour)) and no social media dimension (aside from those comments) or sense that anything on the site is in any way connected to anything else on the site. like, if you stumble on a band you like you should be able to easily navigate to side projects, friends bands, labels they're on, etc etc. not that it's impossible to convey any of that info but the environment doesn't really encourage that kind of wandering & stumbling through, you almost necessarily have to get externally linked

one quirk of BC is that you kinda judge how someone else's album is doing by the number of those little squares, but those only show up if someone has a BC account (fan or artist) afaik. not that it matters, but sometimes i wonder if only 10 people have actually bought a certain album, or if the number is a lot higher but most people don't bother to sign up for an account.

sam jax sax jam (Jordan), Thursday, 11 February 2016 21:37 (one year ago) Permalink

the way I experience Soundcloud is more to sample single tracks, mixes, radio shows, remixes, etc. I don't go there to hear (or buy) whole albums. Make no mistake, I use Soundcloud as well, but since I use Mixloud for mixes, and Bandcamp for full albums, my needs at SC are fairly limited. To me, the biggest advantages there are that a) people can comment on specific parts of a track, and I can easily track downloads/streams, and b) I can see the waveform.
