We’re so use to downloading music from SoundCloud that it never occurred to us that some of you may not know how.

Good news, we put together this easy instruction page to help you download your favourite song off SoundCloud. Within minutes you are going to be able to jam to your favourite Mash Up, Remix and/or Cover off SoundCloud.

*Note – Some of the layouts we will cover may not be what the folks at SoundCloud call them but since we’re explaining it on our website we  call the shots! Okay, here we go!

Off the SoundCloud Website

If you’re browsing the good old SoundCloud website you may see two types of player styles.

Style A – The Simple

This style shows the player with minimal text. Usually this option shows up in your summary or overview feed.

As you see on the bottom here, we have the heart on the lower left portion of the player and on the right hand side we have the down arrow button. Putting one and one together you can download this track by clicking the down arrow. Like magic it will start downloading on to your computer. Enjoy!

Style B – The Description

This style is displayed when you click on a specific track. Unlike Style A, Style B displays the text on the bottom leaving nothing to the imagination.

Like Style A, you click and download. Then party time!

Off A Non SoundCloud Website

Style C – The Embedd

This style is when you see a SoundCloud player on a website other than SoundCloud. This means the player is ’embedded’ from SoundCloud on to the site.

In this situation, this is EXACTLY what you would see.

Yup, the above player is live and you can hit play and start jamming!

If you want to download the above track you will have to click on the DOWNLOAD text close to the upper right corner like this:

So go ahead, click download…and BOOM! You have tunes!

Special Note About Downloading

Style D – The Ask

Sometimes Producers, DJ’s, Artists will want some love back for their work. They will ask you to ‘Like’ their Facebook page or something like that to get the track.

In the above case, RUINMYTUNE, has no download links but tells us in his description that if we want the track we will have to simply follow or, as we see it, “Like” on Facebook for the Hot Maniac tune.

When you click the link you will be flown to Facebook. Enter in your credentials and everyone wins. RUINMYTUNE gets the Like and you get another hot jam!

Style E – The Bummer

There’s also this last style, The Bummer. So something like the below:

If you don’t see any download links or chances to do something for the artist, producer, DJ, then it’s a bummer, you can’t download. : (

Parting note

Those are a few of the styles or layouts that SoundCloud has to download or ‘not download’ music. I hope this guide helped you out so you can get your mp3 player all ready.

But before we leave, I am going to give one helpful tip or rather website.
