Brendan Make A Playlist During Upload

We’re always hard at work making SoundCloud easier and more intuitive to use. Today, we’re happy to announce an update to the SoundCloud upload experience. When uploading several tracks at once, you now have the ability to group them into a playlist.

SoundCloud Upload #2

Edit all the pertinent details of the playlist on one page during upload. Information that applies to all the tracks in your playlist – such as the artwork, description, tags, and settings – now only needs to be filled out once. Super simple.

If you’d like to upload a group of sounds but don’t want to turn them into a playlist, we’ve got you covered – simply uncheck the “Make a playlist when uploading multiple sounds” box before uploading and your sounds will upload as individual tracks.

David Debuting Today: The Dropometer

You might notice things looking a bit different around SoundCloud today. We’re thrilled to be launching the latest iteration to our web platform. And we think you’re going to like it.

The drop in a track can be unpredictable and surprising. Some of you have even told us that you find it unsettling, not knowing when to expect that sense of overwhelming euphoria. Inspired by your feedback, we’ve invented the Dropometer.

Using a unique algorithm (patent pending), the Dropometer is designed to help you prepare yourself for the big moment, whether that means getting in the mental space where you can really break it down, or fixing yourself a fortifying snack.

While we first innovated the Dropometer around dubstep, we’ve identified broad utility for this new functionality across all genres. Look to the Dropometer to find out when to expect a key crescendo in a 17th-century symphony or the emotional climax in an episode of This American Life.

The Dropometer is web-only at the moment; we’ll be rolling it out to mobile in the coming weeks, so you can brace yourself for the drop on the go. Let us know what you think, and watch this space: we’ll be bringing you even more advanced features soon!

Update April 2: Happy April Fools :)

Jami Android and iOS Update!

Today we’re launching version 2.5 of our apps for iOS and Android.

The biggest development: sets are here on iPhone and Android. You’ve been able to create and hear them in your stream on the web for a while; now you can create, share and hear sets on your mobile, too. We’ll be adding the functionality to the iPad app in the coming weeks.

Build new collections of your favorite music & audio, or add individual sounds to sets that you’ve already started building. Plus, a new filter in the search tab lets you look for sets that other community members have put together.

You might notice that the Record button has moved: to help you discover and hear more with the app, we’ve shifted things around to make way for sets and more features (watch this space). iPhone users can find it in the ‘More’ menu. If you’re on Android, just swipe to find it in the side menu.

For iOS users, we’ve also given the UI an update, making it cleaner, sharper and simpler. Look out for the updated app icon, too.

We hope you’ll give the new apps a spin. As always, they’re free to download from Google Play or the Apple App Store. Let us know how you like the updates! We’re looking forward to your feedback.
