this part of the forum is disappointingly dead. for me, a decision to 'go pro' on soundcloud would really be more about having more upload space than anything. they frequently do a 50% off deal so it would be 36 bucks for a year. if the 'spotify' option were actually somewhat effective to leverage, it may be enough of an incentive to get me to fork over the dough.
yeah, in the past i have taken down many recordings due to hitting the wall on SC. just hit the wall again yesterday so time to do some more housekeeping or pay the piper.
As for the dearth of participation on this sub-forum, it is disappointing and yet I find it understandable. I've been a songwriter for more than 50 years, have always enjoyed the process and have had a modicum of success. But, I'm reluctant to offer comments, criticisms or insights to other songwriters because each person's creativity is so uniquely personal. I don't feel that my writing process and the genres that I tend to inhabit would be relatable to most others so I seldom comment, but I do visit this sub-forum and read all of the new posts here regularly. Keep on writing!!
I got it just because for 1) the unlimited uploads and 2) you can replace your track without having to actually delete everything. IOW the description, title, view count, picture, etc. remains when all you wanna do is replace the track.
They had a 1/2 price deal if you pop for the entire year at once. Too good a deal for me to pass up.
Does the SoundCloud Pro offer anything that you don't get from bandcamp? The unlimited uploads and non-destructive track replacement are things that bandcamp offers for free.
BTW- I checked out your bandcamp page. Loved the art/graphics and overall look of the page- really nice! Oh, and your band sounds terrific!! Y'all are tremendously talented and clearly have a musical chemistry that makes each track a joy to listen to. Wish you much success!
