How to Get a Song Off SoundCloud

By J.S. Copper

SoundCloud is a website that allows artists, bands and other users to upload music for easy sharing. Once uploaded, a dedicated SoundCloud page is created, displaying a wavelength for the particular song. This can then be embedded around the web for quick and easy distribution. Users can elect to have the songs available for download as well. If downloading is an option, saving the song from SoundCloud to your computer is quite simple.

Step 1

Open your web browser and navigate to the SoundCloud page for the desired song.

Step 2

Click the “Download” button, located directly above the song’s wavelength. A small window will open with another “Download” button -- click this.

Step 3

Select a location to save the song, downloaded in MP3 format, on your computer. Click “Save.” The song will begin downloading from SoundCloud to your computer.
