    Hey Digital DJs,
    I’m in a bit of a problem. You see, I’ve started recording and publishing a weekly podcast of sorts with my buddies called “BondieBeats”. It’s based around new tracks we’ve all heard, shows we’re looking forward to, and stuff that we may have made over the past week. Now I was looking to upload our shows onto Soundcloud but when I tried, to my dismay, I was turned down by SC’s new copyright feature. THIS SUCKS!
    Now I know that I can use Mixcloud to post whatever I want (mixes/podcasts included) but I lose the ability to use bandpage on our fb page. So I have 2 questions:

    1. Is there any way to “beat” the Soundcloud blocker?
    2. If not, is there anyway to have mixcloud mixes work on bandpage?

    Thanks guys,
    RATTFINK

    change the tempo of the songs for a tiny difference. if it’s a different tempo, it is a different song, thats my little trick.

    A lot of sites are implementing this content identification tool (Soundcloud, Myspace, etc). If I’m correct I believe it’s based on musical algorithm & if your track matches something in their database you’ll get bounced. As for beating the system you basically have to alter your track “enough” that the algorithm identifies it as unique. Also since this is based on a database of some sorts you’ll probably find more copyright detection issues w/ major label artists than indie label artists.

    How much of a change in tempo is required ?

    I used to put about 10 seconds of random noise (backwards tracks, random scratching, pitches up and down) at the start of my mix to get it past the copyright sensors. Just create a small 10 second track of random noise (fade in and out so it doesn’t sound shit) and paste it on the front of your mix using Audacity and it should be ok to put up.

    I’ve now got a mixcrate which so far seems a lot less lenient on the whole copyright thing.

    I did a Breakin’ a Sweat – Skrillex Mashup, and because of its label it wouldn’t let me upload it, I just changed the tempo for a little, maybe from 70bpm to 71 or 72bpm, it alters it but the difference you can’t even hear it.
