SoundCloud is a popular platform for discovering and streaming music. It's been hailed as the YouTube for music where any artist can upload their songs including unreleased songs you can't find anywhere else.
However, sometimes you may want to download your favorite tracks from SoundCloud and listen to them offline or on your preferred streaming platform such as Spotify or Apple Music.
It's important to know that, "not all tracks are downloadable. If you don't see a download file button, it means the user who uploaded it did not intend for it to be downloadable. Additionally, only individual tracks can be downloaded and playlists as a whole are not available" (SoundCloud).
So here lies the problem. You may be wondering, "How to download SoundCloud songs to MP3?" In this article, we will guide you through the process of downloading SoundCloud songs and playlists to MP3 using MusicVerter's free SoundCloud Downloader.
Before diving into the step-by-step guide, it's essential to understand why we're choosing to SoundCloud tracks to the MP3 format.
SoundCloud allows HD formats such as WAV, FLAC, AIFF, or ALAC to be uploaded to SoundCloud by the artist. They also support a large variety of lossy formats, including OGG, MP2, MP3, AAC, AMR, and WMA.
However, most of these file types are not compatible with all devices and streaming platforms. By converting the files from SoundCloud to MP3, you can ensure compatibility across various platforms and enjoy your favorite tracks without limitations.
Now that we understand why we go from SoundCloud to MP3, we'll get into the nitty gritty of how to download SoundCloud songs.
To begin, open your preferred web browser and navigate to the official MusicVerter website. You can use the SoundCloud to MP3 downloader on any browser or device.
Next, go to the SoundCloud website and find the song or playlist you wish to download. First, check to see if you can download it on their website already. In order to do that, you need to look near the middle of the page for either a 'Download File' button or a 'More' button. If you see the 'More' button, click on it and then you will see the 'Download File' button. If none of these appear, copy the URL of the SoundCloud song or playlist.
Artist's Download Link
Sometimes, the artist can add their own link to either download the song for free or for purchase

Now that you know how to download files directly from SoundCloud for songs that the artist allowed for, we'll move onto an example for songs where this option is not existent.
First things things, when using our SoundCloud to MP3 downloader, it's important to know you have to have a certain type of URL for it to work properly. You might be wondering why this is. We're able to download any SoundCloud song or playlist that is public. If you are trying to download a private playlist of yours, it won't work unless you make it public first. More on that later.
The following are examples of the same song, but shown as different URL links based on where you copied it from the SoundCloud website that work on MusicVerter:
Web Browser Link
SoundCloud's Personalized Track
These are all examples of links that work for either a SoundCloud song or playlist. They include grabbing the link from the web browser, clicking the 'copy link' button, selecting the share button and either using the provided link or selecting 'shorten link', as well as SoundCloud's personalized track link that they offer from their homepage.
The following is an example of the only type of links that do not work on MusicVerter's SoundCloud downloader:
SoundCloud's Personalized Track Playlist
Our SoundCloud downloader does not allow for personalized track playlists or private playlists as we cannot access private songs through SoundCloud's CDN. However, we can download a private SoundCloud playlist if you turn it into a public playlist. After it becomes a public SoundCloud playlist, you'll be able to download them using SoundCloud's mp3 converter.
The steps below show you how to turn a SoundCloud playlist from private to public:
When you go to your playlist, click on the 'Edit' button
Change Privacy To 'Public'
Scroll to 'Privacy' at the bottom and select 'Public'
