The New SoundCloud Upload Experience

The New SoundCloud Upload Experience

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.

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.
