「SoundCloud は終わらない」 / "SoundCloud is here to stay."


先ほど SoundCloud 自身が「50日で潰れるとかないし、これからもデータは保全するし普通に使える(つもり)」などなど発表。ホントかなー。日本語圏特に反応薄いので記録しておく。

Hey everyone,

There’s an insane amount of noise about SoundCloud in the world right now. And it’s just that, noise. The music you love on SoundCloud isn’t going away, the music you shared or uploaded isn’t going away, because SoundCloud is not going away. Not in 50 days, not in 80 days or anytime in the foreseeable future. Your music is safe.

Along with each of you, we’ve built this incredible creative community of artists, podcasters, DJs, producers and more who are the driving force in pushing culture forward in the world. That’s not going to change. Last week we had to make some tough decisions to let go of some of our staff, but we did this to ensure SoundCloud remains a strong, independent company.

Thank you for the outpouring of love and support. Some of you have asked how you can help–spread the word that we’re not going anywhere and keep doing what you’re doing–creating, listening, uploading, sharing, liking, and discovering what’s new, now and next in music. SoundCloud is here to stay.




ぼくは SoundCloud と MixCloud が聴いてる音楽の大部分を占めてるから良いのだけど、手放しで喜べないところがあって、

  • 20億ドル融資は溶けたのか
  • 従業員レイオフ送りとオフィス締めたのは事実で、技術面で大丈夫なのか

Today, after careful and painful consideration, we took the difficult step to let go of 173 SoundCloud staffers and consolidated the team into two offices: Berlin and New York. We are extremely grateful for the contributions of each and every staff member who will be leaving SoundCloud, and we wish all of them the best.

    • 開発者だとしたら規模の割に人数多すぎな気はする



あまり触れられない点として、音質が LAME の 128kbps なのが本当にlame。MixCloud は Nero AAC 96kbps だけどまだマシに聞こえるので、せめて ffmpeg 以外の aac か、opus あたり使うと帯域節約しつつ音質良く出来るのでなんとかして欲しい。端的に言うと「音楽サイトなのに Youtube の方が音マシ」という状況です。

プレイリスト機能も大分ヤバいので、せめて MixCloud レベル行けると良いでしょうが、そんな体力もう無さそうだな、という感想です。



Microsoft Sam みたいな TTS にボコーダーかましたみたいでいい感じ。
