All SoundCloud Pro, SoundCloud Premier and Repost by SoundCloud artists can sign up for an account at twitch.tv.
Once your account is created, drop us a line via this form and Twitch will fast-track your channel to Affiliate status, letting you earn revenue from your streams right away. (Twitch will email you with an invitation to their affiliate program within a matter of days.)
Once you’re signed up, visit your Settings page to customize your Twitch account with a profile picture, biography and your SoundCloud URL so new fans can follow you.
To go live, you’ll need a PC or Mac with a webcam and microphone, plus a USB audio interface to capture your sound.
You can use Twitch Studio (PC) or OBS (PC/Mac) to set up and customize your broadcast.
In addition to live performances, Twitch streams can open up new creative avenues through interactivity with chat; musicians on Twitch often host Q&A sessions with their fan communities, take live requests or even write songs based on chat feedback.
Make sure to drop your SoundCloud handle so you can continue to build these connections in the comments section of your tracks.
