Praise for SoundCloud:
“SoundCloud is focused on building out a massive trove of content, weaving it all into the Web and making it easier to share. The “YouTube for audio” analogy looks increasingly apt, especially if its metrics continue to shoot skyward.” – ReadWrite
“Over the past few years the company has grown from a small Berlin-based startup into one of the world’s leading online audio distribution platforms with a truly global footprint.” – The Independent UK
“SoundCloud is a sharing machine. Remember the early days of audio online — when you had to download the Real Player or Windows Media Player to listen? The days of downloading before listening are over.” – USA Today
“Podcasts have been around for ages, but making one still feels too much like making a radio show: You face the empty-mic problem—what do I have to say? Tools like SoundCloud make it easier to archive and share stray snippets. It’s more like Instagram than NPR.” – Wired Magazine (US)
“It’s an evolution of audio’s most vital self-service creation and discovery platform, music’s best analogue to Twitter, YouTube, and Kindle Direct Publishing. It’s not just finding or sharing songs or podcasts or spoken-word readings your friends may be listening to — it’s finding and sharing the people who make those recordings, too.” – The Verge
Discovering great new music has never been simpler. Use the powerful search feature to search for specific people, sounds or sets. Whether you are seeking dubstep, R&B, hip-hop and rock music or the latest news & current affairs, you can find it on SoundCloud.
