Is there a way to convert people's tracks on SoundCloud into mp3 files?

Asked by desiree333 (3190 points ) April 2nd, 2012

I don’t personally use this website, but there are a few people that I really like on SoundCloud. Is there any way to convert their tracks into mp3 files so I can listen on my iPod? I use a Macbook, but I’m not sure if there’s any way to get the files off of SoundCloud to convert…

Both Chrome and Firefox have extensions that will allow you to do this. I don’t have experience with them, but the reviews look promising.

People have a choice of enabling downloads when they upload their music to SoundCloud, if they have chosen to disable downloads maybe you should respect that decision and not try to download it some other way.

@RareDenver Thanks for clearing that up, I had no idea that the user controls downloading. Like I said, I don’t personally have an account on SoundCloud.

@desiree333 You can tell the difference like this

Track you can download has a little arrow down at the top of the bar showing the soundwave like on this track http://soundcloud.com/raredenver/destroy

Track you can’t download doesn’t have the little arrow down icon like this one http://soundcloud.com/charlie-floyd/charlie-floyd-feat-stu
