Summary List Placement

You may have heard the term “SoundCloud rap” to describe a kind of laid-back, lo-fi hip-hop.

But the site is more than a springboard for new genres. SoundCloud is a cross between a free-to-use music sharing platform and a social media site, used by both established and aspiring artists.

Certain music from the site— typically from smaller, independent artists— is free to download to your desktop computer. If you only use the SoundCloud mobile app, you can also use a SoundCloud Go subscription to save songs for offline listening.

Here’s how to do both.

How to download SoundCloud songs from your desktop

Not every song on SoundCloud is available for download — that’s up to each artist to decide when they upload.

Underneath every track uploaded to SoundCloud, you’ll see a few options: “Like,” “Repost,” “Share,” “Add to Next Up” and “More.” If the song is available for download, you’ll see the option under “More.”

1. Sign in to your SoundCloud account.

2. Find a song you’d like to download.

3. Click “More.”

4. If the artist has made the song available for download, you’ll see “Download file” in the dropdown menu.

5. Click “Download file.”

6. The song will begin downloading and you should be able to play it from your desktop using a program like Music.

How to download SoundCloud songs in the mobile app

Users with a paid SoundCloud Go subscription can download songs for offline listening. However, unlike on the desktop app, you’re not downloading a file you can do anything with — you can’t share this file, for instance, or edit it. You can only listen to it in the app.
