    SoundCloud might be in trouble

    Just got this article sent to me on a newsletter and it seems SoundCloud is hurting for business. I googled SoundCloud problems and it seems this has been going for a while (since 2015) so I'm not sure how much things have changed or if this is just a scare tactic. Anyway, you might want to backup your SoundCloud just in case they fold.

    I read this yesterday and was surprised. I now see SC mentioned by ppl in my circles outside of the DJ / Producing world so I though they were in a good place.

    I hate mixcloud and soundcloud.

    I love hearthis.at and House-mixes. I also have 2 podcasts and submit my tracks to a record pool. I also am starting a blog and will host most of my stuff there too. Once I get a respectable email list, I will offer free mixes and tracks.

    Why the hate? it's just another platform to help you reach more listeners.

    Probably because SC used to remove mixes for "copyright violations" often.

    Yeah. I hated that. I understand why but it was very annoying!

    They boosted their employee's salaries by 40% & was hemmoraging money so they closed up their user groups .
    Which Sucks; How is anyone supposed to find your music if you're trying to gain new followers?
    Anyway, they just got infused with a huge $150million investment so guess they can payoff their previous investors.
    I will admit their encoding algorhythm has improved significantly.
