soundcloud - wav file sharing with upload and player widgets

Post by babkubwa » Thu Oct 09, 2008 10:00 am

This is a god send. Upload and share as many wavs as you want - displays a comment waveform! cool widgets to spread around different sites.

About time someone did this thing properly - free as well!

well, starting tomorrow it will be open to the public and apparently it won't be free. I like the design and everything, but I doubt that I will pay for this as we already pay for a server with ftp and a web, so it isn't too much hassle to share our stuff.

Anyone interested in selling mp3s independently from itunes, beatport etc. should check out http://www.ithinkmusic.com as well.

bloody hell - I've been missing a treat!

didn't realize its not going to be free - I also have a server. would be great if you could use their interface on your own webspace for a reduced rate. I'd go for that.

Looks very interesting, how do you know is not free? they don't say nothing at the site.
A day without House Music isn't the end of the world but is so damn close.

Do they have a good widget streaming player you can stick on myspace? I hate the myspace player on every possible level. I'll gladly lose my nominal play count if I can replace it with a good player.

Bit of a blunder they made - there was a lot of info about the pay accounts, and a single line in the emails they sent out to users saying "There will still be a free account but will have certain limits." Unfortunately people keep missing that line (I was one of them :-) )

Personally I think the free account or the €9/month accounts are gonna be more than enough for most people about here. Hopefully people will treat it as the sharing/collaboration tool it was intended and not as another "collect as many friends as possible" MySpace clone.

cosier and more intimate than myspace for example.
