Today’s Free Shirt Wednesday is for SoundCloud! I’m pretty excited about this.. since I’m a big fan of their service. SoundCloud basically allows you to easily share/play music on the web. I’ve been using it for our pedal demos since I can upload high quality MP3s or wavs along with our video demos. The audio quality is preserved.
As for me, I know I only scratch the surface, since I only upload audio for my site, but you can share audio with collaborating artists, etc. Also, there are no file size limits for uploads, so you can push some large tracks up there. They measure storage in minutes. The free account I think is 120 minutes of audio. You can then push it up to various levels and payment plans if needed.
Besides the functionality, they also present the audio in a very cool way, by actually showing the wave form of the audio track. Looks cool, and they also provide WordPress shorttags to include them in your post. Very easy, very slick.. and cool. Thumbs WAY up for these guys.
Below is a great video that explains what they do:
Now, if you want to be featured on Free Shirt Wednesday.. it’s really quite simple. Send me a shirt, if it’s music related (ie: guitar builder, band, pedal builder, guitar shop, recording studio, etc) I’ll dedicate a blog post about your biz, band, etc. I’ll take a photo with my aging, slightly pudgy mug and post it. Great simple, cheap form of advertising. Still interested? Then check this page for more info
