SoundCloud introduces lossless HD storage and downloads for all creators
Now you don’t have to panic if your hard drive gets lost with your baggage or your producer goes MIA with your files, because we’re giving all creators access to lossless HD storage and downloads. The ability to download original files was previously a Pro feature, but we don’t think any creator should have to worry about their original work, so we’re making our premium storage solution available for everyone.
On SoundCloud, you can upload (and now, store and download) more file types than anywhere else, including lossless HD formats up to 4GB per upload. We recommend uploading lossless HD files (WAV, FLAC, AIFF, or ALAC), but a full list of codecs and containers can be accessed on our Help Center.
Need more reasons to upload in lossless HD?
- Your tracks are safe here. We securely store all of your original files (public, private, even ones that are hidden) across multiple data centers.
- You can access your lossless HD files, anytime, anywhere. Download your tracks again in the exact format and size you uploaded them in.
- You’re giving fans the best possible experience. SoundCloud transcodes your files to various codecs optimized for streaming playback, meaning that when you upload in lossless HD, your listeners hear the best possible quality.
- Your future self will thank you. Uploading in lossless HD today ensures that your content is ready for the HD streaming improvements we make going forward.
