Today, we are proud to announce our partnership with Denon, a longtime innovator in premium audio equipment. Using the HEOS™ by Denon controller app, now fully integrated with SoundCloud, it’s never been easier to create, share and stream your favorite SoundCloud audio to the HEOS™ multi-room eco-system in crystal clarity.
Our integration with HEOS means simple, seamless streaming – right out of the box, and a few taps away. Your ears will thank you later.
We’re excited today to be announcing a new partnership with Getty Images that allows our sound creators to make their sounds available for licensing through Getty Images Music — with only a few clicks. Whether you’re a professional or casual creator, if you have sounds up on SoundCloud, you’ll be able to offer them for licensing to media, advertisers, designers and creatives. And you’ll benefit from Getty Images’ global sales and distribution teams: they’ll help you to market your sounds and offer their expertise and experience in digital content rights and clearances. As always, you’ll need to make sure that you own all rights in the sounds that you intend to license.
If you’re ready to get started, head over to http://soundcloud.gettyimages.com to connect your SoundCloud account, sign up, and select which sounds you’d like to make available for licensing. They’ll get a ‘license’ button on the SoundCloud player and widget, and be made available on http://www.gettyimages.com/music if Getty approves your sounds for licensing.
Love Pro Tools? Love SoundCloud? Now using them together just got easier. Avid’s latest update to their cutting-edge audio production software includes sharing to SoundCloud – from creation to utilizing your online community, Pro Tools 10 has you covered.
Pro Tools 10
Pro Tools is one of the most popular audio production software choices for recording, composing, editing and mixing both music and sound used by leading music studios and Hollywood sound editors (e.g. Pro Tools was used in the making of movies such as Gladiator and Mission Impossible 2). The SoundCloud integration offers audio makers the freedom to collaborate and effortlessly share their works, whether it be a hit single, the soundtrack for a TV commercial or the sound effects for your favorite video game.
With SoundCloud baked into Pro Tools 10, audio producers from all fields can share their sounds privately with collaborators for feedback or share polished works to the world. Throughout the creative process, Pro Tools and SoundCloud make audio production and promotion easier.
In addition to SoundCloud, other key features in the update include Clip Gain, multiple file formats supported within one session and higher resolution sound with more headroom. Find out about all the new features in Pro Tools 10 here.
“SoundCloud’s integration with Avid lets professionals collaborate and share the sounds they create more easily with colleagues and clients,” said Alexander Ljung, founder and CEO of SoundCloud. “As someone who has worked extensively with Pro Tools, it’s also a personal achievement to see SoundCloud integrated so well with the latest version of the leading audio production software.”
