So when I first went pro it was roughly €29/year .
Back then you could share your tracks to groups amongst other interesting functionalities.
In the years since Soundcloud has devolved into a mess of spam accounts, bot accounts which has made it quite annoying to use.
But last year they removed the groups, so in essence all Soundcloud is these days is a wall for your personal tracks, no longer is there a sense of community, exposure through sharing through groups.
in essence you are forced to plug your soundcloud URL into other platforms to attract new listeners...
So why has the price gone up by that much?
As far as I can tell the bot accounts are still plentifull, I have less statistics to gawk at and less of a platform to attract new people.
So how does the company justify this gross overpricing and extremely pathetic functionality?
