Having fed up with Soundcloud, I decided to set up a thing to host and archive my music and stuff.


Check it out!

What was the issue with Soundcloud ?

You have to go premium after people have downloaded your song x (200 IIRC?) times and you still want people to be able to download your songs.
Well, basically that it isn't free.

My downloads were getting full and that made some of my tracks unavailable (even for me) and I was supposed to pay for a premium account. I was a few tunes short of reaching my allocated amount of free minutes too, so I would've had to purge some older tracks to make room for new ones. (Or, again, pay.) Also, I didn't really like the new layout they were going to migrate to soon..

Also despite that their ToS looks fairly non-evil, I felt a bit uneasy uploading my tracks there. Now I've got the "control".

I had laid the groundwork for a personal Wordpress site back in 2010 already so I thought what the hell, might as well finish it. So I did.

I usually just post a download link in the description, those work just fine as far as downloads go.

It's just that many people don't even look at the description since the download link is in the player.

...which is why you disable downloads :P

Alternatively, the "Buy Me" link works perfectly too.

..Which people won't click as they don't want to buy things. And they'll see that the downloads are disabled so they won't bother. :)

Let alone that they would read the description which contains the instructions.

So, I would very much like to direct the traffic to my website instead.

Rereading The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck (they released a new french edition), it rang a bell... does the glxblt artist name come from here?
