We rolled out a nifty little feature yesterday: if you have your Twitter account connected with SoundCloud and somebody who also has their Twitter account connected and auto-tweet enabled for favorites, you’ll see an @-reply in your mentions stream on Twitter.
Let’s have a look:
First, find something you like and click Save to favorites:
Are you a budding podcaster, or already have a podcast, and are interested in using SoundCloud as your podcasting service? Well we want to hear from you!
We’ll soon be able to offer RSS feed capability for your tracks and will be rolling this out slowly with selected users. If you’d like to apply to be included in this program and possibly have the chance to become a featured podcaster, just fill in the form below. Whether you have a podcast you want to move to SoundCloud or have one in mind and have been waiting for the opportunity to get it out there, then sign up! The best and most interesting applications will get a special beta account too so you can really test drive SoundCloud.

Please note: Due to resources, maintaining the desktop app became a bit difficult, so it has now been discontinued. We’re currently focusing energy on making the iOS app and web experience as good as they can be. If you enjoyed the playlist feature, the new SoundCloud allows this. If you would like to bring the SoundCloud experience to your desktop, you can try out this app (just keep in mind that we don’t have the proper resources to maintain this app at full speed).
With today’s launch of the Mac App Store, we’re happy to announce a new addition to the suite of native apps: the SoundCloud Desktop app for Mac. The coolest part: it’s currently a featured app in the Mac App Store in the section “What’s Hot” and also high up the list in the music category. The absolute coolest part: it’s free.
We’re bringing the SoundCloud experience to your desktop that allows you to access all the sounds shared exclusively with you to browse, listen to and favorite sounds. Create custom playlists and saved searches to see the sounds you need in an instant and download others for offline playback. And just like all the official SoundCloud apps it also includes record functionality that lets you easily capture and upload any sound whenever you need to share or store something quickly.
So whether you’re a serious sound professional who needs something to manage your daily workflow or just a casual creator who prefers the smooth native experience of OS X, SoundCloud Desktop does just the job.
- Record: capture your sounds right in the app and upload to your SoundCloud account in no time.
- Listen to, favorite and manage your exclusive and incoming tracks in one place.
- Browse and search any sound
- Create playlists and saved searches
Only tracks that have been made available for 3rd party applications will be accessible via SoundCloud Desktop. To change your settings, go to your track settings (pen icon above the waveform) and enable Apps.
Open the Mac App Store on your Mac after the software update that will install a dock icon for accessing the store. Or try this direct link.
As always, let us know what you think in the comments below. And if you like it, give kudos to Robb, brainchild behind the app. Well done!
