We know music is a vital part of your DJ toolkit – and today we announced a way you can instantly access the diverse catalog of nearly 200 million tracks on SoundCloud.
We’re partnering on integrations with six leading companies to bring streaming to DJ applications, so that for the first time ever, you can mix SoundCloud’s massive catalog directly through your performance software.
To create a set using your SoundCloud collection, all you need is your Go+* premium content subscription (that now gives you access to high quality audio) and one of the below DJ applications:
- Native Instruments
- Virtual DJ
Integrations will begin rolling out over the next few months, so check back here for details. And in the meantime, keep growing your collection so you have plenty of tracks on deck for when you play your next set.
*SoundCloud Go+ gives listeners access to our entire catalog, offline sync, no advertising, and high quality audio streaming – start a 30-day free trial here.
We get it: you want a better way to get your mixes out into the world and heard by millions. Starting today, we’ve made it easier than ever to record, upload and share your content directly to SoundCloud using Pioneer DJ’s DJM-REC app on iOS.
In addition to fast, effortless sharing directly to SoundCloud, the DJM-REC app offers you:
- Easy connection to DJM series mixers equipped with the send/return feature
- High-quality audio recordings that minimize clipping and distortion
- Live streaming mixes
- Post-production mixing capabilities

We are excited to add Pioneer DJ’s DJM-REC to our growing list of partnerships and integrations available for DJs, including: Apple GarageBand, Apple Logic X, Ableton Live, Avid ProTools, Steinberg Cubase, Music Maker Jam and PreSonus Studio One.
You can download Pioneer DJ’s DJM-REC app today in the Apple App Store, and try it absolutely free for a 30 days (then purchase for $9.99 after the trial period).
It’s great to see all the cool stuff people are building on the SoundCloud API and our widgets. Here’s one project that we’d like to highlight, it’s a mixtape site called QC Mixtapes and they have a feature built on SoundCloud called the Mixcloud. Here you can browse mixes from different genres in a really smooth way. If you’re a DJ and you’re reading this you can easily submit your mix to the site by sending a message to QC Mixtapes on SoundCloud with a link to your mix on SoundCloud.
Here we are browsing the ‘funk’ genre:
Here’s the single page for a mix:
They’ve also built a Facebook app, so you can share mixes you like there.
All in all, great stuff!
