Introducing SoundCloud Pro
Following the great feedback you’ve sent us over the last few months, we’re excited today to be able to give you a heads up: we’re launching brand new subscription plans. Simpler and better value, SoundCloud Pro will make it even easier for you to share your sounds and grow your audience.
Our Pro and Pro Unlimited plans will replace Premium Lite, Solo, Pro and Pro Plus. Easier to use, they offer more upload minutes for your money, plus access to the tools that matter the most to you.
We really appreciate all of you who’ve already been using Premium to share your sounds, making such a huge contribution to the SoundCloud community. If you’re already a Premium subscriber, you can now upgrade your account to Pro at no extra cost.
More news: we’ve also been working on some improvements to the platform. When we introduced the new SoundCloud last December, one thing that you told us was that you needed us to improve the tools you use for posting sounds, as well as communication tools. So we’ve been rebuilding upload and messaging from scratch, making them native to the new platform, and Flash-free.
Look out for the updated tools, coming very soon: we’ll be rolling them out and building their functionality as we go. We’re also making private messaging simpler as part of the process, clearing up things that have caused technical issues and spam in the past. Get the full lowdown on what’s changed in the FAQs.
And we’re also experimenting with some more visual profiles and sounds. Pro Partner profiles are in beta: they have a different layout, plus ‘Moving Sounds’, which enhance sounds with dynamic visuals. We’re working with some selected partners to test them out. Our plan is to find out what elements work best, and then to integrate them into your full SoundCloud experience. We’ll keep you posted.
You’re the heart of SoundCloud, making it the rich, positive and supportive community of sound creators and lovers that it is, and we hope these changes will help to make your experience better. Let us know what you think! As always, we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback.
