The music sharing platform SoundCloud has revised it partner program lately. To the existing Free and Pro versions a Premium version has been added.
The premium version offers musicians again further options compared to the pro versions. A main feature is the ability to sell music on the platform. This up to now has been possible by the integration of links to external stores only. This feature might become a most valuable option, because of SoundCloud being one of the most popular online music services in the world.
Currently the premium version is invite only, but on the site there is the option to apply to the service. In the future the service will be open to all. To get an overview about the partner features visit On SoundCloud, for general information and to listen to music visit the SoundCloud homepage.
Just lately the live recording service set.fm came out of beta and is now providing its services to download live recordings and the app to record events to the public. Musicians are able to download the app, to record their events and to sell the recordings at the set.fm homepage.
The service is located in Austin, Texas, and up to now only recordings made in Austin are available at the homepage, which is because of the app being available just since the beginning of September. But set.fm has ambitions. The service got money by investors and aims to make revenues of 100 million in five years, which probably needs a global expansion. An argument to reach this target is a general trend toward live events in the music industry and a test of the app showed that about 15% of visitors of events have bought the live recording. To get further information visit the homepage of set.fm.

Who reads the TRAEXS blog regularly knows about the many music publishing and sharing sites and who do publish dj sets or other kind of mixes probably looked for an option to mark particular tracks within a set, something usually not being possible.
This is different at the cloud music hosting service Mixcloud, where I just did some research for another service and by this just tried the upload feature for the first time for the associated site traex.de. And this feature is great at Mixcloud and it solves exactly the problem of marking particular tracks within a mix. Uploading happens by a common interface accompanied by facilities to add information as usual. After this common page a further particular page follows enabling to set time stamps marking the beginning and ending of particular tracks. This leads to displaying the right information at the right point while playing a file and even to navigation within a file like the embedded and comfortable Mixcloud player shows below. The service by the way is free and for more visit Mixcloud.
