Support each other, even if you hate ads in general. It’s only 30-60 seconds on SoundCloud, and such a short amount of time is no big deal that can be easily killed while you mute the ad. Listen to the ads!
You’ve had a 1 minute ad???
is there a way to block them or something? for like the last year all ive ever gotten are 30sec unskippable ads.
also not every artist/one of us is getting paid for the ad’s that show up on our track. you have to apply through soundcloud to actually get paid and meet some requirements.
All kidding aside, if people are monetizing via ads, it’s good not to block or skip them. Content gotta get paid for somehow.
Well, people with a pro subscription on SoundCloud don’t really see ads. I can verify this myself, as I myself have a pro subscription on SoundCloud.
i have a pro subscription and i see a few ads
SoundCloud Pro doesn’t remove ads when listening; SoundCloud Go however gives ad free listening for a fairly reasonable price.
I think there are many more listener friendly ways to go about supporting your favorite artists than listening to ads specifically but I strongly implore everyone to show your support in whatever way possible, be it purchasing their tracks / albums on stores or sharing their music on other platforms.
Whoops, guess I have a SoundCloud Go subscription, cause I never see ads. But, yea, always support our fellow artists trying to get some revenue from their ads!
i don’t know much about soundcloud so i might be wrong but i’m pretty sure that pro gives you the little orange star next to your name, the extended upload time etc…
Pro is for creators, Go is for listeners.
I believe Pro gives you a discount on Go though
I never seen an ad yet… and i dont have pro
I do not have pro, but I skip through em’ all.
wait, there are ads?
It was probably 2 adds
I’ve actually noticed that I haven’t been getting many, if any, ads which is interesting. Used to be like one ad after every track or 2, but now I can listen for like a whole hour and not get one.
Yeah same, sometimes I get them every 6 minutes or so and other times I don’t get any
So what he’s saying is that you should not skip them in order to give your fellow artists support.
They are just images though lol
