Hello all. So far I've been uploading my songs onto Soundcloud for public consumption. I've been thinking about uploading to Allihoopa, but is there any advantage to doing that in addition to Soundcloud, or instead of Soundcloud?

The thing about Allihoopa is that with anything you upload you will grant anyone who gets ahold of the link non exclusive rights to use your material in any kind of production without any obligation to accredit the creator of the original material. So once you upload your stuff to allihoopa, it's free for anyone to use.

Allihoopa has a 10 minute limit on song length as well.

afaik, there is no commercial aspect for Allihoopa - SoundCloud provides (at least) the opportunity for you to post a link to your productions for purchase (in the meta-data section).

This, you sign away your rights as soon as hit the upload button,
What if you uploaded a track and all someone else did was to sing over it. It goes viral and the singer is all over the internet and the song is storming iTunes. Fame, fortune and all that other stuff awaits singy person and not a mention of who created the original music that launched their career and you cannot do a single thing about it.
Not saying this is what would happen but it is an example of you signing all your rights away when you use Allihoopa.
Only be prepared to upload stuff you don't really need.

I am willing to bet if this happened that the singy person would want you to make more beats for the since they had such great success in the past.

Or just rinse and repeat on all the user's other stuff they uploaded. Great if the person wants to use it as a promotional vehicle knowing they are giving away anything they upload on the platform and aren't bothered about people making bank off their creative work.

I think Allihoopa is great place for people to improve their skills, find connections, practice, learn, and share with people around the world.

I do hope every person reads the terms of service cuz there's some pretty good tracks out there.

One thing that I did notice is that a track I uploaded to Allihoopa sounded better than SoundCloud. Not sure if SoundCloud converts wav to MP3 or lower sampling rate but indefinitely changed the quality of the audio ( using the non-pro SoundCloud account ). Can someone test and Confirm this?

I use SoundCloud for finished songs and Allihoopa for songs I don't think I'll finish anytime soon, for what good it will do. Maybe it will inspire someone out there.

Well, at least on soundcloud your song isn't going to get hosed by all the neptune "autotune" effects.

Guessing it's gonna be worse now with actual autotune being a thing.

I thought soundcloud was supposed to be going out of business?

People have been saying that for quite a while. SoundCloud had to up its game in the face of increasing competition, and in deference to the saying 'If it ain't broke, improve it until it is'. Not quite there yet.

I pay for Pro Unlimited (I think it's called), and don't get bothered, but I have noticed the disappearance of the simplicity of approach which marked it out in the beginning, and which persuaded me to join. Their Android App is rubbish and always has been.

Now, I divide my work between SC and YouTube, because YouTube is frankly a more popular platform and you can get away with doing audio there, although I'm not convinced that they render audio in an attractive way.

I've looked at other audio platforms, but I just don't find them attractive for cinematic/~classical work, and the pro ones cost an awful lot more than SC.

I guess what I'm saying is that, for me, SoundCloud will do until something better comes along, or until it dies.
