    I've been having trouble with Soundcloud - they won't let me add new content and are not sending me the email confirmations they claim they have.

    So I deleted my accounts.

    Sorry about any posts in the PMW's or such that no longer exist.

    It can be buggy.
    I uploaded a new one yesterday.

    I got tired of waiting for the confirmation emails that never arrived - I opened support tickets...nothing.

    Good for you for posting new music.

    Sorry to hear that! In the past I've had some issues but they seemed to iron themselves out.

    In the past soundcloud gave me periodic headaches, but was fine earlier today anyway.

    I had 2 accounts with different emails. The accounts got merged w/o my knowledge, and then they never sent confirmations nor responded to my support requests.

    To the cornfield.

    Sorry to hear you've had so much trouble @davidKOS. The only trouble I've had is a glut of email 'liking' and offering to promote my music. It's quite comical when this happens about 30 seconds after I've posted a track named something like 'Gated Snare Test 3' that is never intended for release!

    What if one of them actually is a hit? :sneaky: "Man, I can't wait until he releases 'Gated Snare Test 4'."

    I've never received an email from Soundcloud, but I have plenty of likes from spambots, even for a track with nothing but 3:14 of solo kick drum...

    Can it be posted like a Soundcloud track?

    Good point, embedding Soundcloud tracks is a definite bonus.

    I like it better than soundcloud. Sound quality seems a bit less compressed/ better sounding. You have a max upload of 250 Mb per upload. Though I have not run into a data max yet. I don't have a paid subscription. Maybe it is better than soundcloud, maybe I just REALLY hate soundcloud and am really biased. Either way, it is worth checking out as it works very similar to SC.

    I didn't even bother to check whether files could be made available for download like Soundcloud. It's the simplest way of distributing backing tracks, no need to visit other sites.

    Yeah I checked on the phone too, just for the hell of it. I like to poke things with big pointy sticks, to see what happens for myself.
