Update for Mixcloud Users

Recommended Posts

The way you stream on Mixcloud will soon be affected.

"Mixcloud has always offered a service for creators to upload for free, and for anyone to listen for free. It's crucial to us that these options continue to exist."

As a free listener, here's what will be changing
- Free listeners will only be able to seek forwards (not backwards) while listening to a show
- Free listeners will only be able to listen to the same show a maximum 3 times in a 2 week period
- Free listeners will not be able to listen to shows that feature more than 4 tracks by the same artist or more than 3 tracks from an album (if you're not a rights holder)

Their subscription plans are also changing
- $2.99 for Mixcloud Select
- $7.99 for Mixcloud Premium 

I'm assuming this is USD pricing.

this will completely kill off mixcloud. Who the fuck is going to keep uploading to mixcloud if their listeners can only listen to the same mix/show 3 times in 2 weeks? or long mixes in some genres where they'll have multiple tracks from the same artist

soundcloud was purely donezo from a financial point of view. If you weren't keeping up with the news at the time you wouldn't have known anything was amiss. This is different because it actively impacts the users of the site
