SoundCloud SoundRain Lets You Sell Your Tracks

Wondering how you can sell your tracks easier? Well, wonder no more! Created eight days ago at Music Hack Day in San Francisco, Minno founders and former Google employees Noah Ready-Campbell and Calvin Young integrated Minno (the easy-to-use micropayment system) with our API and created SoundRain! Now, you can sell your tracks anywhere across the web, directly in your browser, using SoundCloud and SoundRain!

All you need to do is connect your account with SoundRain and select any tracks you wish to sell for a payment of 99cents per download. Once a track is enabled for purchase, a “Buy with Minno” button will appear on the waveform player and take the listener directly to SoundRain, where they can buy the song in one click.

To get a better idea of how to connect, watch the screencast below:

Once you’ve sold $10 worth of tracks, SoundRain will send payment via PayPal and continue to do so every $10 increments – you will also have the option to change this to larger installments if you want!

And see a live example of how SoundRain works below! New York-based SoundClouder of the Day alumni, Cyra Morgan connected her account! Check out the buy link on the widget below by clicking the little arrow on the right side of the player:

    sweeet…how much does soundcloud charge u to sell from them?

  •  This is excellent.

  • We don’t charge anything. Handling and transaction are processed by the
    company called Minno, who built SoundRain:

  • Nikola


  • ShaneFontane

    why 99 cents. we can’t decide how much to sell our work for?

  • Dr Lasers

     How can you control the selling of other people’s work? example: someone uploads a an already released piece of music by another artist and then uploads it to soundcloud for sale as their own?

  • dax

    great idea, and easy to use

  •  WOW after trying it out I have to say this is the most dead-simple way to sell tracks I’ve found. Fantastic work, @Minno crew!crew!

  • Awesome, glad you like it!

  • Rob

    …and how does licensing work?  if you sell unlicensed music does that mean the “buyer” is free to use it however they wish?  Just seems like a lot of legal gaps.  Great solution, but is it safe?

  • This is awesome!  I already got some of my tracks for sale:

  • chris olson

     WOW! Great job on this guys!  2,000 thumbs up!!!

    One thing I noticed, the average user will NEVER see the “Little Arrow on the right side of the player….”  —  I embedded one of my SoundCloud “Sets” on my site and each song that is available for sale has a big fat “BUY” next to it… much easier for all that are looking at this solution for selling your tunes!  

    Link to the example:

  • Here’s some background on the evolution of this.

    Very excited to see this process emerge.
    Many thanks guys.

  • buy my tracks @ soundrain 

  • beat creep

    What is the percentage?  I can’t see it on the Minno site!?

  • mmm…fishy

  • My thoughts on SoundRain :

  • i-eye

    obviously, due to the lack of any response, nobody has thought about these copyright and licensing issues???
