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.

We’re excited today to be announcing a new partnership with Getty Images that allows our sound creators to make their sounds available for licensing through Getty Images Music — with only a few clicks. Whether you’re a professional or casual creator, if you have sounds up on SoundCloud, you’ll be able to offer them for licensing to media, advertisers, designers and creatives. And you’ll benefit from Getty Images’ global sales and distribution teams: they’ll help you to market your sounds and offer their expertise and experience in digital content rights and clearances. As always, you’ll need to make sure that you own all rights in the sounds that you intend to license.
If you’re ready to get started, head over to http://soundcloud.gettyimages.com to connect your SoundCloud account, sign up, and select which sounds you’d like to make available for licensing. They’ll get a ‘license’ button on the SoundCloud player and widget, and be made available on http://www.gettyimages.com/music if Getty approves your sounds for licensing.
