Yo Taylor, imma let you finish, but…
… we just want to say that SoundCloud just pushed the best release of all time. The best release of all time!
Friends of the Cloud, we’re happy to announce the release of Taylor, named after Taylor Swift, who had a fun encounter with *the* Kanye. This was big news for both Taylor and Kanye and it’s major news for SoundCloud as it’s our biggest update ever.
We’ll be posting an ongoing series of blog posts with details about each new feature in the next few days and here’s a quick overview of what’s happening today. Click the links below to discover more on our fresh new product pages.
Two new player widgets: the Artwork and Mini player. Here’s the Artwork player with the Crooked Vultures song New Fang. Sexy, isn’t it – perfect for your album pre-releases.
Easier private sharing with the Secret Link: share a private url via email and IM
Stats-o-rama: completely revamped stats. Be in the know about the who, what, when, which and wheres around your tracks.
Bringing back the original metric of music: total minutes. SoundCloud becomes your tape in the cloud. Erase & rewind, upload & remove as many tracks as you want within your total amount of minutes. Click here to learn about the different minute packs.
Extended privacy options: disable comments, hide stats and make comments private.
Housekeeping: all PRO accounts are now known as Premium accounts. Check out the full lowdown.
Introducing the new Premium account called ‘Lite’, the perfect entry-level account that lets you dive straight into the premium features for only €29.
Cheaper Premium accounts: we just lowered the price of the yearly Solo, Pro and Pro Plus accounts (€79, €250, €500).
Scup and Cloudpost: two new little apps that let you upload straight from your desktop (note: both are beta).
Oh. One more thing: the iPhone app, it’s finally here. Get it in the app store for €0,79 or $0,99.
Cool? We think so too. Pretty much every new feature was developed based on the awesome feedback you have given us in the past months. We hope you like the new stuff we’ve been working on and please don’t hesitate to leave your thoughts in the comments.
