|Here`s another take on the SoundCloud woes.|
All makes me think that using YouTube as the host for the music and then adding all the required features that people like on SoundCloud here would be the way to go.
No issue of costs spiralling out of control and no requirement to make money either.
|27 July 2017 13:33|
|Thank you MrKil101. I will do everything I can to continue to make this the site that everyone wants it to be.|
|25 July 2017 16:58|
|In a way those SC woes have been happening for a long, long time now but have scaled up even more recently. I`ll stay there until or IF they do fold but ACR and whomever they attach to is a really good thing-maybe the best thing to come along in years.|

|S**t happpens! ;)|
|22 July 2017 20:21|
|It`s such a shame what is happening to SC, but we have to accept that it will not exist any more fairly soon.|
We`re probably going to move everything to Bandcamp as soon as we`ve moved ourselves to Germany. Hope you will add BC soon! RN well worth adding too.
We are very unhappy with the contempt with which SC treat their users. It`s no surprise they are going broke when they alienate their customers with appalling behaviour.

|Blimey! NO idea it was THAT bad!|
|21 July 2017 15:07|
|Going to add BandCamp & ReverbNation too.|

|Coverversions on YouTube can make alot trouble. My Supertramp rendition was taken down twice...|
Alot Copyright issues on there... getting your account closed when you got 3 hits....
I want to throw Reverbnation in... :)
|27 July 2017 00:15|
|Are there any plans for Reverbnation integration?

|There`s been talk about tying SC and ACR to MP3 Unsigned.... Is there any truth in that?|
I`m new to the site and certainly, I am not trying to make waves. But, would like to know about tending another music site that might be someday tied together...
|25 July 2017 13:14|
|Where did you hear that? No truth in it whatsoever from this side.|
I own and operate this website on my own and will never sell it. Yeah, yeah I know you think I might be tempted if a big offer came along but I want everyone here to understand that I get more satisfaction out of the community on here than I would from money, and I have a separate business that funds my life so I don`t need to do any deals that are not in the interest of the community here.
This is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done and that`s worth a lot! :-)

|Have i TOTALLY missed the boater on the atom collector radio plays thing? Help, I cant find the thread! 😂... @Juxta?
|25 July 2017 13:10|
|It`s on the Radio Stations message board.|
|25 July 2017 13:09|
|There is now a separate message board for "useful resources" - https://atomcollectorrecords.com/beta/messageboards.asp?messageboardid=0|
Feel free to add any useful websites but please make sure they are of high quality.
Any posts that get a lot of negative comments will be deleted.

|So you can now add up to 50 YouTube videos to the site.|
YouTube is the largest music streaming service in the world (see https://www.digitalmusicnews.com/2016/12/15/youtube-biggest-music-service/) so it makes sense to get your music on there but it can be time consuming creating a video, even if you are just using a static image.
Well thanks to a bit of searching by our good friend GrandSpaceAdventure there is a simple solution: https://hypeddit.com/soundcloud-to-youtube
So now you have no excuse! Get all your SoundCloud music converted and uploaded to YouTube then add them on here - GO!

|Could the delete button be put on a page where you can actually see the name of the track? I am having to see-saw between "My Details" and "Track Comments" to ensure I delete the correct track. Or is there already a way and I am making life difficult for myself?
|21 July 2017 15:06|
|I need to do a lot of tidying up and making things a bit easier. This is one things that will be improved.|
|16 July 2017 21:20|
|"If" SC does go under [pure speculation here] what will happen with AC?
|21 July 2017 01:57|
|I`m working on all of that :P|
|19 July 2017 15:23|
|Ya mean you really DON`T control those things or the weather or the spinning of the earth?|
|19 July 2017 03:02|
|Thanks MrKi101. As you say a lot of that is out of my control unfortunately.|
|18 July 2017 22:18|
Often I listen to tracks long after I`ve gone and voted for them (often it`s an involuntary hand thing l,l,l) So I would like to have my vote reflect that I`ve gone and done that extra listen. But I`m unable to change or alter my vote in anyway-nor once I`ve voted can I enter another vote. In SC I could un-click my vote and place it further on down the line

|BTW Guiding Tech looked interesting and I did join but as my email has been and still is down I can`t respond to their email to continue the join process !@#$ !@#$ !@#$|

|First off I surely hope you`re around for that long-long live ACR|
I would still love it to be able post right here and not depend on another site but you`ve already expressed how difficult that might be.
Much of those "necessary things" are kind of out of your hands. Things this like people giving real reviews and actual critiques of what they hear and think might make the piece better.
And the ability NOT to have people float junk that really doesn`t matter to anyone and really has nothing at all to do with your song (or really anything else on earth or on this site!) Again this is something that`s not necessarily anything you can do much about.
The suggestions I`ve submitted before pretty much fit into this question so I won`t bore you with repeating them.
|18 July 2017 03:49|
|MrKil101 - thank you for your views on BandCamp, etc. |
I will of course do everything in my power (finances not withstanding) to make this site as friendly and welcoming to musicians as I possibly can with all the features that people require.
I would love your input on what you think would make ACR as good as SoundCloud (or better?). If we used YouTube as the vehicle to get the music heard (being as it is probably the most likely service to still be around in 10 years). What features would I need to add? What don`t you like about it in its current form?
Be as honest as you like as I really do want this to be the ultimate destination for the "kind musician" :-)

|hey everyone im a independent rapper from Philadelphia all good vibes and good music check me out please.. https://soundcloud.com/jay1kflow |
|17 July 2017 05:05|
|Yes, those two sites have completely different priorities than SC|
Flicker (https://soundcloud.com/wud-records) posted these, seems to be a few that might work, but it will take time to both acclimate to the style and rebuild followers.
|17 July 2017 04:24|
|Ok I can see I didn`t look down deep enough to see that thread. Anyway I, tentatively, joined both BandCamp and MixCloud (again) and found them, so far, to be just about what I`d predicted in my rant of a few weeks ago. Basically I still feel they`re not for me. The restrictions they put on the users are pretty tight and neither of them seem to allow love for the music which is, I think at the heart of this whole deal, to shine through-at least not for moi. Yes, I understand that this IS a business but it`s a business based on a very feely/touchy thing called the arts and the "suits" need to allow for that. So the alternatives everyone is talking about down there of YouTube and maybe some of the others mentioned might have to be it if I find they can be trusted enough. I`m still thinking all these sites are missing the heart and community feel of the original Soundcloud and I will continue to look for that although I keep having doubts that I will ever find it again. (deep sigh!)|
