Matt Creator News: LANDR, Stagelight, & SoundCloud Go discount

Musicians and audio creators have never had more tools and resources available to produce their best tracks quickly and easily. And we know different kinds of creators have different needs, which is why we’re happy to spotlight two new tools. The first, via a partnership with LANDR, gives all SoundCloud creators the ability to bring professional quality sound to the tracks they upload to SoundCloud. The second is an app integration with Stagelight, allowing those who are ready to make the jump to becoming a creator a little bit easier.  

 

SoundCloud + LANDR

Today, we’re excited to announce a partnership with LANDR that opens up professional quality mastering for creators on SoundCloud.  And the best part is that it’s free for all SoundCloud creators. If it’s new to you, mastering is the final step after recording and mixing that ensures your tracks sound the best.

Driven by the smartest algorithms in the game, LANDR’s all-in-one, drag and drop interface makes mastering your tracks easier than ever. For this partnership, LANDR has created a new format specifically optimized for SoundCloud streaming.

  • All SoundCloud creators can master as many tracks as you’d like in this new format, for free.  

In addition to the above:

  • Creators on a free plan can master 1 track in LANDR’s high-res WAV format
  • Creators on a Pro Plan can master up to 2 tracks in LANDR’s high-res WAV format
  • Creators on a Pro Unlimited Plan can master up to 4 tracks in LANDR’s high-res WAV format.

There’s never been a better way to bring professional-quality mastering to your tracks, and the playing field has never been more level. To start mastering your tracks, head to this landing page, and connect your SoundCloud account. You’ll then be able to master and upload from the LANDR microsite to your heart’s content.

 

SoundCloud + Stagelight

Interested in becoming a creator but intimidated about learning complicated production programs? Stagelight by Open Labs provides a great jumping-off point for new creators and a seriously simple way for veterans to get back to the heart of their creative practice.

Start with an easy to follow in-app lesson and then progress at your own pace. Stagelight comes pre-loaded with a massive amount of sounds and loops for you to use royalty free, features like Key Lock which locks your digital keyboard to the music key of your choice, and built-in song templates. There’s also a native SoundCloud integration that makes it incredibly easy to upload to SoundCloud so that you can share the tracks you create.

Download Stagelight for free for a wide range of Android and Windows devices here. You may be surprised at how digging into the basics of songwriting — assisted by Stagelight’s powerful, accessible tools — can revolutionize the way you think about your creativity.

SoundCloud Go, our new listener subscription service, arrives in France today. Its debut marks our fourth SoundCloud Go market launch to date, bringing listeners in France an expanded catalogue of more than 125 million tracks from some of the biggest and emerging artists from around the globe, plus additional features like offline listening.

Like the UK and Ireland launches last week, today’s launch is part of our ongoing commitment to building an ecosystem where creators have opportunities to be paid for the work they share.

SoundCloud will continue to be the place to listen to, discover and share new tracks from emerging and established artists for free, with SoundCloud Go offering listeners an enhanced experience with additional features.

So, if you’re in France, sign up for a free 30-day trial of SoundCloud Go here, or through the latest version of the app.

With SoundCloud Go, you take your listening experience to the next level with:

  • Offline and ad-free listening.
  • An expanded catalogue of more than 125 million tracks. You’ll get the best from artists signed to the biggest labels on the planet (like Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Merlin, and Warner Music Group, to name a few) right alongside the best of the unsigned and up-and-coming.

After the first 30 days, SoundCloud Go is €9.99 on Android and €12.99 on iOS. You can cancel anytime.
