What is it? Glad you asked. According to Adi:

“AG Watermark Generator is an intuitive program that enables you to insert an audio signature in the tracks you compose. The software allows you to insert audio fragments in your songs that play on top of the original sound, thus creating an audio watermark. It is easy to use and ensures an accurate preview of the result.”

Tuneruit Tech and Music Mashup – Should Twitter Buy SoundCloud?

Tunefruit-Tech-Talk

I have been using SoundCloud for many years now.  As a music producer, it is an excellent tool to upload and share your music with the world.  They have great analytics tools too. They help you track who is listening to your music and where they are.   It came as a surprise when I recently heard about a possible buyout from Twitter.  Both sites have a user base of around 250 million and recent reports have said that more users share SoundCloud links than any other site.  Facts such as this have had tech analysts say this is a smart move.

Could Twitter really benefit from a site like SoundCloud?  I am not alone in my skepticism.  Recent reports have stated that Twitter is not growing fast enough and this sentiment is being reflected in the stock price.  As a result, acquisitions that would appear “outside of the box” are being considered.  Twitter has been wanting to get closer to the music industry for some time now.  In addition, acquiring a company with a large user base will definitely add value and address growth concerns.

I am not quite convinced.  For some reason having them as separate entities seems like a more natural fit.  Latest reports have said that the deal is currently off, however, anything can happen so keep an eye on this space.
