SoundCloud was founded in Stockholm by sound designer Alex Ljung and artist Eric Wahlforss. The underlying idea was to give musicians the opportunity to share recordings with each other, but was later transformed into a publishing tool that gives musicians to share their songs. SoundCloud counted in January 2012 nearly 30 million registered users. Every minute an average of ten hours of songs are uploaded and 180 million people visit the platform every month.
The main feature of SoundCloud is that the platform allows users to upload their music via unique URLs. This allows that the sound files can be viewed anywhere online with embedded players on websites and social media. This way one can listen to songs by pressing the play button. The sound files are displayed as sound waves (waveforms). Users can leave comments on these sound waves, called “timed-comments’, where users can give specific feedback. It is also possible to post general comments. Another important feature is the ability to follow other users and like their uploaded files. When you follow other users, their uploads appear in the ‘stream’. This is similar to social media websites or blogs. Users can also personalize their profile through a biography and profile picture. Each profile has also its own mailbox, allowing users to communicate with each other.
Users can choose from three types of accounts. The free account and the two payed accounts: Pro and Pro Unlimited. With a Pro account you can upload sound up to six hours and the so-called. With the Pro-unlimited account the user gets unlimited storage and more detailed statistics about the audience.
Pro Partner account is intended for large brands and companies and can only be realized at the invitation of SoundCloud itself. Some partners are: Red Bull, Snoop Lion, Chris Hardwick, The Grammys, The-Dream, SModcast, The Guardian, Blue Mic, KQED and Blue Bottle Coffee. Pro Partners have the possibility to add a cover photo to their account. They can also make use of the ‘Moving Sound’. This gives the partners the opportunity to add a slideshow to their sound for visual guidance. These accounts are also promoted making them easier to find as they first appear at the suggestions.
As we said, you can embed songs on websites and social media. Here’s an example of an embedded SoundCloud player.
