How do I share my sound to a group?Just like every SoundCloud profile, every SoundCloud Group features a dropbox to receive sounds. Not sure which Group you want to share to? Explore groups here.
To share one of your sounds to a group, go the group's page that you wish to share to. For example:
From the Group's page, you can submit a new sound by recording from your computer or submit a sound from your already uploaded sounds.
If you select a sound from your already uploaded sounds, please note that all private sounds that are shared to groups will automatically become public. So if you want to have your private sounds remain private, don't share them!
If you submit your sound to a moderated group, you will need to wait for the group moderator to approve your sound. Once your sound is approved, you will receive a notification to let you know. If you don't receive a notification, this means that the group moderator has not approved your sound. You will need to reach out to the group moderator to inquire about your sound's approval status.

Group Sharing Limits
Please note that there is a limit to how many sounds you can share to groups. In order to regulate spammy behaviour in groups, we have put a policy in place to help reduce the amount of sounds being regularly pushed to the top of a groups stream.
Our aim is to help make groups more usable in the future as your sounds are less likely to get lost in the group stream as quickly as they have been in the past. This means if you are doing either of the following you will be presented with a warning, or land in a block which temporarily prevents you from adding to groups:
- Sharing your sounds to a large number of groups within 24 hours
- Using any automated scripts, or tools, to contribute to groups
