How To Download SoundCloud Songs

How To Download SoundCloud Songs

It’s always been on my mind to figure out how to download songs or more specifically their mp3 files from SoundCloud. SoundCloud doesn’t allow it directly for all of their songs, but what if you wanted you to download a song that isn't set up for download on their website? I did a little research and here’s what I found.

In Summary

So, how do I download mp3 from SoundCloud? Using MusicVerter’s SoundCloud Downloader, copy and paste your SoundCloud link into the box and then press download. MusicVerter will then download the song directly from SoundCloud’s CDN and then will automatically download the mp3 file to your computer.

Here it is in 3 easy steps -

  1. Copy and paste your SoundCloud link into the box and then press download
  2. Wait as we convert the mp3 to be an available download
  3. The mp3 will download to your system automatically.

Copy and Paste the SoundCloud Link

What do I mean by the SoundCloud link? Well, for starters there are a few things I need to say about downloading from SoundCloud. 

When you go to SoundCloud’s website and find a song you like, first make sure to look to see if you can download the song directly from SoundCloud. It’s pretty simple (and I even explain it in some photos below). Once you're on the song you want to download, look at the row of tabs and look for the tab labeled ‘Download’.

Press the download button which is found to the right of the ‘More’ tab. On some songs, the artist will allow for a download and in that case, you will see a download button right next to the ‘More’ button. 

Press download and the song can be downloaded directly to your system into mp3 from SoundCloud. However, you need to remember that the artist has the choice of allowing for direct downloads or not. In most cases, you will find that the artist does not allow for direct downloads off of SoundCloud. Don’t worry though, because there is still a way around this. So what do you do?
