Soundcloud is almost dead, what's next?

As many, I have been more and more disappointed by SoundCloud.
All community oriented features have disappeared, and compression quality seems to go down.
I start to think that it won't get better and will eventually collapse into a pathetic bullshit.

So I'm trying to find a good replacement.
I recently had a try at hearthis.at but that platform is mostly dead, it does not feel right.

Two weeks ago, a friend introduced me to logamp and I really like it.
There's not much people yet, but as my friend said "it feels like an early soundcloud".

What' your experience with this topic? Is there other good platforms around?

We could eventually all leave SoundCloud and go to logamp (just like we could all leave Facebook )
Come and join me there!

Cheers,

Luc

Re: Soundcloud is almost dead, what's next? logamp?

I have no clue, but I hope I discover it before a bunch of bootleg rappers, edm djs, and other people who sound like they are not trying to experiment blow it up.

Serious question:
Why do you guys think hear this is can replace soundcloud? No one I know has ever heard of it, and it seems too cluttered and not clean enough to be considered something the mainstream would use.

I'd like to know you guys reason for why you believe it can take over sound cloud

I've read soundcloud start to have intern issues, about copyright. They also have make some political changes, trying to make people pay for accompt. They try to run the business, but they could loose lots of user if it became worth. As any social network, they need them. As an audio platform,they could be replace quickly...

Re: Soundcloud is almost dead, what's next? logamp?

Hearthis is awesome, so long as you don't get X amount of plays and get forced into a premium account.

Logamp might be cool, but I bet the horrible design will be a turnoff for most people.

Early soundcloud really had a nice design and 'thing' going for them. It's so horrible to realize what they've become. In all honesty, the best replacement will be what most people flock to, IMO. Unfortunately ATM, that just means the newer soundcloud.

Re: Soundcloud is almost dead, what's next? logamp?

yeah i wish soundcloud wasnt trying to be a social networked radio station. i really dont like the current format. the old format was good enough. the main reason why i stay with soundcloud is some of the groups and the FLAC support.

Re: Soundcloud is almost dead, what's next? logamp?

I personally have no opinion on Soundcloud or any other music-sharing website, but the fact stands that SC is simply the most popular venue for up-and-coming artists as of right now.

I may look into Logamp, but I'll focus my attention moreso on where more people flock until the website starts to really decline. Hopefully by then I'll be able to make a decent niche for myself anyhow.

I received an invitation to "clowdy"?

Haven't tried it out to be honest. but it looks like a promising platform created for multiple creative fields to collab with.

Re: Soundcloud is almost dead, what's next? logamp?

Frankly, I only use SC as a way to host my files and let people play them without having to download them, and having access to play stats is a nice bonus (I used my dropbox before, no feedback whatsoever). I have a literal handful of followers and I only keep them updated as to what's going on every 6 months. Most of my action comes from the LB here or occasionally taking my stuff to reddit, and the rest comes from my friends on facebook. If I were more serious about this, I'd start by making a separate facebook page and a twitter account and use that to link people into my SC, but I pretty much just avoid any of the social aspect on SC. I don't know, I've had mine about a year, so maybe I missed a better time, but it does what I need for free as long as I keep it under 3 hours of content, which is plenty since I think after a year I've used like half an hour of space.
EDIT: I guess if I had to use something else, I'd use youtube for playback and link it to dropbox for downloads.

By "groups" I mean the track submission groups.

I don't quite get the SC hate. Great place to host and stream music. Let's see how the legal challenge plays out. It might well affect their revenue.

Re: Soundcloud is almost dead, what's next? logamp?

sc is ok, I used to hate the new interface but I got used to it and don't even remember the old one. Not having any problems with it. And yeah, someone mentioned sc groups. I forgot that those exist; I remember strictly moderated smaller ones used to be the best, because otherwise group was flooded with spamz and new EDM hits.

hearthis.at - it's ok, but not my favorite. Not very active and I've noticed bunch of bot users recently. Still a good alternative.

logamp - looks ugly af. Also it's weird it has 3 topics: music, art and literature. "Share your creation" it says. At least it's free, has unlimited space too. Could be used as a storage for musics.

nobody here mentioned official.fm. I don't know if they changed that but you only were allowed to upload mp3s. Another plus - selling your music directly without much of fees (like you have on bandcamp). Not very active too, as far as I remember.

last.fm - sadly it's almost dead. The new ui is the worst thing ever. But you also can upload music there and "manage" your artist account. However, you can't just change or remove artist profile and art - any other user can edit it, upload whatever they want and put ridiculous tags. Someone tagged me "made for dark souls". WAT. Do not recommend.

bandcamp. Great for storing shit too, huge user base and "discover" option is pretty neat, however it only lets you scroll through 10 pages. I'm not sure if it gives you unlimited space, but you get a lot. Another top pick.

myspace - yeh.

Re: Soundcloud is almost dead, what's next? logamp?

i dont get it

soundcloud has at least for me the by far most interesting mixes and music. and i usually dig experimental shit thats idm as fuck. and, recently, valium house. most if not all artists i dig are on there. among them, aphex twin. why did he use sc instead of some other streaming platform?

i had one track disputed and was upset for 14 milliseconds, and then i noticed that a) its a free service and b) sc is probably in a lot of copyright lawsuits so they have to do something.

its nice to still get some new peoples input on stuff too. aside from that, i enjoy the community there which is nice and friendly.

so, i dont see the need to switch to another platform. maybe one day they will force me to use a paid-for account too, but since i am prone to sunk cost fallacies AND have used this service for free for years i guess i will stay on board even then.
