Jami SoundCloud and Ableton

Ableton has long been the number one choice for musicians, whether for songwriting, making beats, remixing or live performances. At SoundCloud, we know that many of you depend upon it, indeed many of our team members use it on a regular basis privately (and it’s even been used in a masterclass or two!). It’s therefore with great pleasure to announce that SoundCloud and Ableton, two great Berlin audio companies, have teamed up to give our communities something unprecedented and very, very awesome.

The news? Ableton now comes with SoundCloud sharing baked in – yes, upload straight to SoundCloud. To celebrate, SoundCloud is offering Ableton users 5 months of SoundCloud Pro, for free. You can find the details here. So what does the SoundCloud community get? Ableton has been generous enough to offer the entire SoundCloud community a free copy of Live Lite 8 so that everyone can get started making their own sounds.

(Our free Live Lite offer was only available until the 31st of May, 2012. You can however check out Ableton’s 30 day trial at http://www.ableton.com/free-trial )

And that’s not all – come May there will be a competition to compose a sound with parts from M83, Junior Boys and Nosaj Thing. Of course, you’ll need Ableton with SoundCloud to enter,  so make sure to update your copy of Ableton to get SoundCloud sharing and if you don’t have it yet, claim your copy today!

David FTW of the day: iPhone app SoundGrid lets you export to SoundCloud


What a nice surprise! Late last night, we received an email from SoundCloud user Vitaliy Pronkin informing us that he just added a SoundCloud integration to the iPhone app he developed: SoundGrid. Here’s what it does:

SoundGrid aims to be the most advanced matrix sequencer for iPhone / iPod Touch to create stunning audio-visual performances in a moment and wherever you are. It was inspired by famous Yamaha Tenori-On and popular ToneMatrix webapp by André Michelle.

That is so cool! We’re big fans of the Tenori-On and André has been a long-time SoundCloud user and friend. We’re psyched to see Vitaliy bringing all of this together. He goes on saying:

In the last version ability to record tracks was added and obviously I decided to support direct export to Soundcloud (thank you for great service btw). All exported tracks can be found here and also there’s special group to which users encouraged to add their creations.

Below, you’ll find a couple of examples – of course – in a SoundCloud player. Nice!

Very well done, Vitaliy! Thanks for the heads-up on this one and for the support to export to SoundCloud. We’re stoked.
