Visit and interact with other soundcloud pages. I don't think it's bots, it's just other people trying to drive activity to their page with fake interest. Unfortunately it seems to be the only way.

There's a slight change, now I'm getting private messages a minute after uploading a track, wanting to "sign me up" coz the track which keeps having 0 plays and nobody bar me has heard it yet is absolute fire.

Yeah, those are definitely bots. Always some bogus account with an avatar lifted off some girl's instagram and only having reposts or straight "pay for real listeners" advert tracks. There's probably like 17 real people on soundcloud.

I got a message from somebody, offering a 1 000 listens for five bucks. I thought "oh, what the hell..." And it worked.

But what's the point if you know they were all farmed? If 1000 bots listen to your tracks there can't be much satisfaction in that. Is there some advantage to the numbers I'm unaware of?

All I know is that I spent some time years ago checking out other pages and it definitely increased my average listens ever since.

I guess its the difference between having numbers so the algorithm, whatever site it maybe, notices you via views and serves you out for more views and building a viewerbase that way, or building a loyal fanbase via interaction. Or some cross over of the two. Same end result, theoretically. And its interesting to find out too.

Either option has a history of success, but I cant really be arsed with either

This will wreck youtube encoder's day.

Funny thing I discovered by trying to polish some video turds - youtube was actually better with detail while using AVC (h264) instead of more modern HEVC(h265) codec.

Was taking a ladder down after working on a tree when I fell off and broke a vertebra.

My first day back online was this monday too, as our bb and phone both died on wednesday night!

FFS!!

Hey, Max. Yet another truly creative piece of procrastination - you are truly a master!

Doc says I will be back on my feet in about 6 weeks, hopefully. Meanwhile, I am having fun with the pain killers....

No advantage that I'm aware of, really. Perhaps it would impress some random visitor. I did just to see what would happen, out of curiosity.

I see soundcloud as an online video game, where nothing is really real.

The bombastic sound. All the reverb we add to simulate concert halls ,clubs.
Not really real. Its all just a fantasy.

All the brass,guitar and woodwind is just noise pushed trough narrow comb/bandpass filters in a feedback loop. Any computer can do it.

At least computers allow me to have that fantasy of being a composer.
