Can I connect more than one SoundCloud account to SKIO?

Unfortunately you can only connect one SoundCloud account at a time, however, you can switch between as many accounts as you would like.

Can I disconnect my SoundCloud at a later time?

Yes, you can disconnect your SoundCloud at anytime. Just keep in mind that once you do, you will no longer be able to access or display your fan analytics.

Can I import a track from my SoundCloud to SKIO but not for licensing?

Yes, if you don’t want a track remixed but would like to show off something you’ve worked on, you can always showcase your track. Showcase tracks will be displayed in the “About” section of your profile.

Can I import my bootlegged remix from SoundCloud?

Uploading a track to SKIO must be done by the rights owner or with explicit permission from all necessary parties (ie. record labels, rights collective agencies, publishers, songwriters, etc.).

For more information on who can upload a track to SKIO, please read our Terms of Use.

Can I upload my Stems later?

Yes, you can add a stem file at anytime by editing your track in the “My Tracks” page. That said, including stems with your master audio will increase the chances of your track being licensed.

How can I retain the rights to my track on SKIO?

SKIO’s standard terms outline that original rights owners not only keep the rights to their own track, but also the rights to all remixes made.

If you decide that you would like to share the rights to a remix, you can do so by editing the standard terms in the Custom License.

I used the SoundCloud import, why isn’t my track showing up?

To ensure the highest quality audio, we only accept .wav and .mp3 file types. If your SoundCloud track contains a file type other than one of those, you will have to upload your master audio separately.

If I disconnect my SoundCloud, will my songs still be available on SKIO?

Yes, you can disconnect your SoundCloud at anytime without losing the tracks that you have already imported. However, you will lose your ability to showcase your fan analytics.

If I don’t want to sell my track, can I still import it from SoundCloud to SKIO?

The Soundcloud import feature is designed to make your content available for licensing on SKIO easily and quickly.

If you do not wish to make your content available for remix licensing but still want to showcase your skills and sounds, you may want to add a “Showcase track” to your profile by simply embedding a link (YouTube, SoundCloud)

What are Stems?

Stems are isolated multi-tracks, or in other words, a collection of audio sources grouped together. Artists will mixdown separate groupings of key elements such as, drums, bassline, melody, vocals, guitar, synth, etc. that once added together make the full track.

Depending on how the track has been built there can be anywhere from 2 - 30+ stems in a stem file. Stem files give enormous creative flexibility to remixers, collaborators, DJs and live performers.

What information will you be collecting from my SoundCloud?

SKIO can only see information that is already made publicly available, including:

  • Your public track list
  • Your artist name and profile picture
  • Information on your fanbase

That’s it! Want to know why we display fan analytics? Read more here: Why do I need fan analytics?

Why can’t I see my track in the SoundCloud Import List?

Check to make sure that you have uploaded your track and that it’s not a repost. Then make sure your track is publically available. SKIO can not see tracks that are not yours or tracks that you have made private.

Why do I need Fan Analytics?

There are three major benefits to SKIO’s fan analytics.

  1. Labels use SKIO to find new talent to sign. One of the ways they look to see if you’re a good fit is by checking your fanbase analytics.
  2. Artists look for collaborators on SKIO. Many artists do strategic collaborations, and want to connect with people who have a different fanbase from their own.
  3. Learn about your own fanbase. By connecting your accounts, you can learn important information on your fans, such as, where your music is most popular and how fast you’re gaining new fans.
