You may have noticed a new look and feel to your SoundCloud upload experience. We’re thrilled to announce that the new upload page has just been rolled out to everyone.
The new upload is more reliable – with better performance, a simplified overall experience for creators, and some cool new features designed specifically for ease of use and speed:
- Drag and drop capability
- Tag suggestions
- Simplified information fields
- Background encoding
Drag and Drop
Once logged in, you can now start an upload from any page on SoundCloud by simply dragging and dropping audio files into the browser window. Have a few files to upload? Drag them in simultaneously and they’ll upload at the same time.
Tags are labels for your uploads. They help organize search results and make it easier for your audience to discover you and your work.
We’ve made it effortless for you to tag your audio by suggesting a wide range of the most-used tags. Just click to select a suggested tag.
Simplified Information Fields
We’ve streamlined the information fields to focus on the ones most important to you and your audience. Looking to add a buy link, determine the license for your upload, or apply your access settings? You can find them by clicking “More options”.
Once you’ve saved the details for your new sounds, get back to exploring the site while they upload in the background – you can always return to your upload page by clicking on the progress indicator in the header:
P.S. We’re working on set creation during upload, too.
