    Default Soundcloud's automatic content detection pulled my mashup - How to circumvent it?

    Yeah, my mashup was pulled from Soundcloud via automatic content detection.
    I'd like to have it back on and am wondering what's the best way to do it. I heard changing the tune up or down half a semitone works like a charm.

    Any other ideas?

    Same thing happened to me the other day - I had to take three goes at uploading my mix. (Shameless plug: you can find it here http://soundcloud.com/jezalenko-1/night-movements-set )

    Dont even have to change the pitch much, I think I raised mine 0.05 semitones and it uploaded no worries!

    ive found that dropping a useless sample clip at the beginning with a slight pause before it works if nothing else does... bit of a pain but if nothing else works its worth a try

    After pitching it down half a semitone it got pulled again after two days.

    I'm gonna try what you suggested, brian_johnstone.

    Have you tried renaming it? Just a suggestion. They might have a search on things like 'calvin harris' which is why it got pulled again days later. Try using numbers instead of letters.

    Another suggestion is to upload a different track, then go into 'edit' and 'change original file' - see if you can trick it like that? Have to have a pro account for that though I think.

    It got pulled now 10 times. I tried replacing letters with numbers in the name.

    The mashup consists of three different songs. I uploaded it three times each time without one of the songs in it.
    I found out the problem was Billy The Klit - Kniftig and not Bounce by Calvin Harris.
    Now I just pitched that song two semitones up and uploaded it again.

    It doesn't sound as good but it is still better than not having it there at all.



    YouTube is fine so far with it:

    It was theory28 who uploaded it and I know it eventually got approved but I'm not sure how.
