We’ve just released a little new feature that we think is pretty nice.
When you look at a user’s profile you’ll see that we added a new ‘Share’ button. This will allow you to share this user’s latest tracks in chronological order (newest tracks on top) in our flash player widget.
And here is how this will look like when embedded to another site (in this case, that’s my blog but you can also embed it to the sidebar of your blog or any of your profiles or sites that allow you to add html codes).
One more little thing: you can now easily share a user’s URL (http://soundcloud.com/forss) to Facebook. Just add it to the “What’s on your mind?” field and it will post the player with the latest tracks to your Facebook stream. Have a look:
WhaSoup.io, people? Last week during Music Hack Day in London we had the chance to meet Christopher from micro-blogging platform Soup.io and quickly decided it would be a great idea to make it easy for users to share their SoundCloud tracks on Soup.io. Less than a week later and we’re all set!
If you have a (micro)blog over at Soup.io, you can now easily import publicly shared tracks from SoundCloud. Just head to your account, add any SoundCloud username to the list and it will automatically import the public tracks to your blog.
This is how your Soup.io blog looks after importing the tracks. Whenever you upload a public track to SoundCloud it will automatically be added. Pretty cool!
Also, much like the Posterous integration, whenever you’re on a SoundCloud track page (or any other page with SoundCloud tracks embedded for that matter) you can use the Soup.io bookmarklet to post a track with just one click:
Hats off to Christopher and the Soup.io team for getting this great new feature live so quickly. Try it out.
I’m really glad to tell you that after having worked hard on our two top feature requests (uploading multiple tracks at once and privately sharing sets of tracks) we can now announce that it’s live, working, and outright kicking ass. Yes, you can now upload and share multiple tracks in one go on SoundCloud. Super-powerful for if you are doing promotion of new releases (Add artwork and metadata, gather comments, see who played and downloaded), and a big time-saver if you’re uploading multi-track sessions and stuff like that. As usual, you can upload tracks of any length, size, and format.
The way it works is very straightforward. In the uploader, you can now select more than one track. If you do it, a set will created with the tracks you upload, and notifications over both email and on the dashboard will be sent out to all people you share to. Here’s a 1-minute video to show you how it goes:
Also big thanks to Wareika for the great soundtrack for this video. If you have a hot track you’d like us to use for our future screencast, feel free to drop it in Nils’ DropBox.
