Hello People of The Press
What is SoundCloud?
SoundCloud is an audio platform that enables anyone to upload, record, promote and share their originally-created sounds across the internet, in a simple, accessible and feature-rich way. From sample to symphony and soundbite to soliloquy, SoundCloud allows sound creators anywhere to instantly record audio on the site or via mobile applications and share them publicly or privately; to embed sound across websites, social networks and blogs and receive feedback from the community.
SoundCloud's open platform also supports a wide range of applications built on the SoundCloud API, enabling everything from mobile voice recording, online mastering, digital distribution to Facebook artist profiles and iPad music making. SoundCloud offers free accounts to amateur creators, with more advanced users able to upgrade to premium accounts for advanced features like statistics, controlled distribution and custom branding.
How did SoundCloud start?
SoundCloud was born out of the frustrations that founders Alexander Ljung and Eric Wahlforss felt when they couldn’t easily send and receive large music files over the web. They decided to build a platform that would not only solve this problem, but that would enable any audio creators to collaborate on projects, receive feedback on their work and ultimately share their creations with anyone, anywhere. Their aim is to unleash the sound creator in everyone.
