Darrell Introducing Collection, your new SoundCloud home on the web

We designed Collection to make it easy for you to build your own home on the web for your favorite music & audio.  Follow artists, like tracks and playlists, build your own playlists of favorite tracks, and be the first to hear what’s new from your favorite creators. Whether you’re using SoundCloud on web or on iPhone, you’ll find everything you love in your personal, private Collection (we’ll be bringing it to you on Android in 2015).

You can play your liked tracks in the order that you’ve added them, or mix it up with the Likes shuffle.

Get to your Collection on the web by logging in and clicking https://soundcloud.com/you/collection. We hope you’ll settle in, hit play and enjoy — with your Collection, you’ll hear all your favorites for hours with just one click.

Darrell Things are looking better on the web

Every day at SoundCloud we’re working to make our platform the best place to hear music & audio on the web. And today we’re excited to tell you that we’ve amped up the way that things look, too.

Visuals are a crucial component of how you choose to share your music & audio, and now they’ll be backing every track on the web as they do on our iOS and Android apps and embedded players.

That’s not all — browsing a playlist is easier now that you can scroll through all of the tracks in your stream — no need to click over to the playlist’s page. Reading the comments on a waveform is faster, and when you go to add yours, the rest will fade into the background, making it easier for you to focus.  All of the comments and full replies are now available on the main track pages.

And for those who want to dig deeper into the details of what they’re hearing, we’ve moved all the essential info into one overlay: click ‘Read More’ on any track page to see it all in one place.
