RouteNote Upload Deadline for December 2016 Holidays

The holiday season is fast approaching and to prepare for office closures both here and at the retailers, we are updating you some upload deadlines.

General Uploads
There will be some disruption to content publishing throughout November and December, which could lead to extended waiting periods. The final deadline to guarantee placement at the retailers before Christmas is 2nd December.

Release Dates
For any release dates between 16th December – 6th January, the deadline for upload is 15th November.

Any content uploaded for distribution later than these dates risks delayed releasing periods.

Office Closures
The RouteNote offices will be closed 23rd December, reopening 3rd January. During this time and for the following 2 weeks, we are expecting delayed responses to support queries and content moderation.
Please bear with us as we shake off the holiday hangover and get back to helping you make money!

We think we’ve covered everything, however, if you still have questions or would like to get in touch, please email support@routenote.com or create a ticket on-site.

Soundcloud Go: Soundcloud Launches Music Subscription Service to Rival Spotify, Apple Music and Beyond

Soundcloud has announced their new subscription service for listeners called Soundcloud Go. Soundcloud Go is now available in the U.S for $9.99 per month.

SoundCloud Go is the same SoundCloud you’ve known for years taken to the next level: with an expanded catalog of tracks that are new to the platform, new features and new functionality.

With SoundCloud Go, listeners will get:

  • Even more tracks from emerging and established creators – including the massive hits, the latest tracks from the biggest names, the sounds of the underground, the most engaging podcasts and the best of what’s up-and-coming – all in one place
  • The ability to listen offline on their mobile device without a cell signal or internet connection
  • An uninterrupted, ad-free listening experience

Soundcloud Go is expected to rollout into more countries as time progresses as well as expansion of ad-supported listening.

After the first 30 days, it’s $9.99 per month (or $12.99 per month if purchased through our iOS app). You can cancel anytime.

RouteNote Artists: If your music is already monetized on Soundcloud then it will be eligable for Soundcloud Go from the beginning. If you haven’t yet joined our Soundcloud Network then please login to your account and add your Soundcloud channel.
