SoundCloud is a music sharing and streaming platform which allows users to share and monetize their music around the world. When AWAL delivers your releases to SoundCloud, you can expect a few results:
- Monetization: In territories where SoundCloud’s streaming platform is active (find that list here), you’ll see your releases monetized on the platform. You’ll see royalties accounted to you in your monthly statements as normal.
- Streaming: Any release we deliver to SoundCloud will be available to stream on the platform in its entirety in the territories where monetization is available. It’s important to note that in any territories where SoundCloud’s streaming platform/monetization is not active, users will only be able to play a 30-second preview of your track.
- Content ID: SoundCloud has a system in place to identify copyrighted material. If a 3rd party user attempts to upload your release without permission, their upload will be blocked from SoundCloud.
Note: SoundCloud is not a default service. If you’re unsure if we can deliver your releases to SoundCloud, please get in touch with us via the Contact Us page on your Portal and we can review your account.
