SoundCloud is an amazing service, but how to easily download SoundCloud audio files? We previously gave you the answer in the guise of ‘SoundCloud Downloader’, a nifty, small and portable app that can do it.
This week we’d like to introduce ‘SoundCloudMp3.com’, a web-service that will let you download from SoundCloud by simply providing the URL for the track you want, and that can be used in the spur of the moment from anywhere and across all platforms.
Step by step:
Step 1. Find a SoundCloud page which has a single track on it and copy the URL
Step 2. If the page you are looking at has multiple tracks, right click on the one you want and select ‘open in a new tab’ or a new window (I did this in Chrome in the screenshot below, but you can do it in all major browsers).
Step 3. Go to SoundCloudMp3.com and paste your URL from steps 1 or 2 above in the form; click download, and the right click ‘Save link as’ on the track when it appears to download it.
The verdict: very effective and convenient. While other methods for downloading from SoundCloud have certain features to recommend them (e.g. SoundCloud Downloader will let you tick off the tracks you want to download from a list of all tracks on the page, and the SoundCloud downloading bookmarklet is quite convenient), Soundcloudmp3.com just might be the easiest to use, especially for off the cuff, ad-hoc SoundCloud downloads where you just want to download quickly and move on.
