If you really think about it, the entire system is extremely flawed. Being able to listen to ad free music at a higher quality should be incentive enough to buy soundcloud go (a $16 subscription). Youtube doesn’t make people pay for youtube premium to upload videos. Being limited to what you can upload by an arbitrary time limit is quite an anti consumer practice. For example, the new artist is unable to gain as much exposure because, as soundcloud itself says “more tracks equals more listens.” Not only this, but soundcloud is being hurt by the deal, as well; if artists are less likely to be heard, then that means they are less likely to gain ad revenue, less ad revenue means less money for the creator and soundcloud. This has caused more and more people to cut out using soundcloud all together and using bandcamp, or some other, more convenient streaming service to upload their music. Soundcloud needs to completely redo their entire business model before it’s too late.
