    I second that
    .
    For 8 bucks a month, the Pro account gives you the ability to make many different playlists. That’s basically a trip to Starbucks.

    I send many private playlists to demo submissions.

    Just received an email from Soundcloud stating that they have been listening and ” We’ve decided not to roll out the change to our free upload limits, and will continue to refine our balance of free and paid offerings to make the platform as creative and accessible as possible while building a sustainable business”.

    So, for now, the free accounts will stay as they were

    MM Music,

    Just curious. On the free account, can you see who listened to your play list and track other listeners?

    I’m trying to remember why I paid for the Pro account :-).

    That’s one of The MAIN features that is worth the little extra. You can see all of your visits, playlists listens, etc.

    On the free version it gives you very little information on this..

    NY Composer, you see very limited stats on the free account… Like top countries and cities for geography and 1 top listener name.

    It works for me because I dont have a page aimed to the public… I use SC only for library pitches. I know when my pitch is heard and thats enough for now.

    Crow… Yes, looks like its business as usual for now.

    Got this email last night…

    Upload limits
    are not
    changing on Monday
    For the last 12 years, SoundCloud has been the destination for millions of artists around the world like you to upload, share and find what’s next in music. Our mission is to empower you with the best tools to build and grow your career on your own terms, and to foster a community where creativity can thrive.

    Earlier this week, we announced our intention to change our upload limit. We’ve spent the last few days since the announcement listening to you, learning from what you’ve said, and reflecting about what makes SoundCloud special as an open platform that helps creators of all types express themselves.

    And we heard you. We’ve decided not to roll out the change to our free upload limits, and will continue to refine our balance of free and paid offerings to make the platform as creative and accessible as possible while building a sustainable business.

    We’re excited for what’s ahead. We have a strong roadmap of new features, products and updates for you. And we’ll continue to gather support and feedback from you, the community of creators who have helped build SoundCloud into what it is today.

    So keep it coming. Tell us what you think, what you want, and what you need. We are here, listening.

    Yeah, well, they have to find a way to lose the freemium business model. It doesn’t work.
