We’re always excited to develop new ways to make it easy for you to share and hear sounds everywhere. So we’re happy to announce today that we’re working together with Google to make it easier than ever to reach your audience by sharing sounds to Google+.
We launched a Google+ Sign-In integration back in May, making it possible for you to sign in to SoundCloud using your Google account. Today, we’ve leveled up our integration. Share any SoundCloud URL to your Google+ circles and the widget will appear, automatically in the post. (You’ll need to make sure to enable the widget when you post your sounds so they can be shared this way.) That also means that you (and your followers!) can play sounds from SoundCloud within Google+: no need to open up a new tab.
And it’s effortless — check out how artists like Pearl Jam, Snoop Lion and Armin Van Buuren are already using the integration to share their latest tracks (look out for the hashtags: #soundcloudplus and #summersound). Don’t forget to follow us on Google+, too.
We’re pleased to announce that Figure from Propellerhead now includes built-in sharing to SoundCloud. Figure is a fun music-making app with drums, bass and lead synth in an easy to use touch interface for iOS devices.
Since being released earlier this year, mobile musicians have been using the Figure app to create little masterpieces while on the go. Now it’s time to show the world what you can do with Figure.
To celebrate, Propellerhead is inviting you to create your own beats using the Figure app. Share them to SoundCloud to have a chance to win prizes.
Browse Propellerhead’s listening gallery of the latest tracks using Figure’s built-in SoundCloud sharing and hear a sample below.
How does it work?
It’s easy. Use the Figure app to create and share your creation with the world by using built-in SoundCloud sharing (available in Figure version 1.4).
Each play your song gets equals one lottery ticket in the prize draw. The more plays you get, the bigger your chance to win.
Prizes up for grabs for the two winners include:
– Beats Pro headphones and Beatbox Portable speaker by Beats by Dr.Dre
– Propellerhead Software music production suite: Reason, ReCycle and Balance audio interface
– A one year SoundCloud Pro account
The winners will be drawn on March 15th, 2013. Find out the full details on how to take part on the Propellerhead website.
