Soundcloud use to be a great place for independent artists like myself. post their sounds. now? it’s getting to the point I might remove my account. here are the issues that users are experiencing.
one one of the issues I can’t stand about Soundcloud is the constant fake accounts. like and sharing your songs. asking to pay for followers.
now Soundcloud asks for money with ads to upload more to the website. when websites like Facebook,Myspace,Bandcamp are free for users. now you go on Soundcloud you get some awful music on your profile. you want to see peoples songs. but, now you get promoted tracks. that you do not care about. have no interest in. also, if you make a remix on Soundcloud you’ll be removed for it. don’t even pay for the service.and finally this is where it angers me. they are now removing groups. so, now it’s harder for people to share and listen to your music. I was in over 20 groups and it really helped my follow count and plays. this is where I am tired of Soundcloud. they don’t care about indie artists like myself. might be moving all my music to Bandcamp or just make videos and post to Youtube and Vimeo this doesn’t help artists like myself. they just want to make a fat check with bigger artists and give us the bread crumbs of others. this is an awful idea. all the constant changes and there IOS app that never works and is a terrible interface. I’m hoping they will listen to the users that made them bigger. if they don’t well.. “I told you so”
