How to Download Music From SoundCloud 6

SoundCloud is a social platform which allows free sharing and listening to music. It's a great tool to explore new and upcoming musicians, particularly because users from all over the world can upload their own audio files and songs for you to listen at no cost. If you would like to enjoy music offline on SoundCloud, there are several ways to download songs and other media.

SoundCloud's Download Feature

SoundCloud music downloading seems easy. Artists have control over whether their music is available for download, so just pick it to download and save that content if you see a Download button underneath the track or under the More option. If you don't see a Download button, this is because the creator didn't make the content available for download.

Yet SoundCloud's native download feature has some issues. First, most content is not available for download on SoundCloud. Second, you may be sent some content with a download link to a third party website to access the media you want. You may need to register an account with the third party provider, or sign in to another site, such as Twitter or Facebook, to continue with the download. Although this approach is usually valid when set up by the artist, it may be irritating and may connect your social media accounts to a media page that you may never use again.

Note : Downloaders are frequently removed from the extension web stores because they violate SoundCloud's terms of service. Once installed, you should be able to use them without issue, but if they're removed from the web store you won't be able to install them again.

Some downloaders add a Download button to all SoundCloud media pages, while others add a SoundCloud icon to your browser where you can paste a SoundCloud web address and download the content.

Download With a Third-Party Downloader

Finding a third-party website with a SoundCloud downloader is another way to save Offline listening content from SoundCloud. This approach is useful, as you don't need to install something. Be aware, though, that third-party sites carry the same security risks as extensions.

If you're willing to take a risk, KlickAud is a popular SoundCloud downloader website. Here's how it works:

  1. Find a song or other content you'd like to download from SoundCloud.
  2. Copy the URL from the address bar.
  3. Navigate to the KlickAud site (or to another third-party website with a SoundCloud downloader).

Search Google for "download from SoundCloud" or "SoundCloud downloader" to find additional options.
