Where did Dropbox go?

In the spring of 2014, we removed the private sharing feature called Dropbox from the SoundCloud platform.

If you would like to privately or publicly accept tracks, you can either use our messaging system, or create a group

Messaging

If you would like to have artists privately share tracks with you, we recommend using our messaging feature. This way, you can receive new tracks and can have a conversation about them all in the same place. 

They can either share tracks or playlists to you in a message through 'Share' button below the waveform:




Alternatively, they can share their tracks by creating a new conversation in their messages inbox, or by clicking the envelope underneath your profile picture on your profile:









Groups

By creating a group, you can have anyone with a SoundCloud account upload directly to the group, or submit a track that is already uploaded to their account. You can direct potential artists or fans to your group through an embed on your blog or website.

You can create a group here: http://soundcloud.com/groups/new

From there, you can grab the embed of the group through the 'Share' button on the group page like this: 



You can grab the embed code and paste it to your blog or website to reach out to a larger audience. 



Once posted on your blog, anyone can land on your group page where they can submit their public tracks while logged into their SoundCloud account.

If you choose to have the group moderated, you can listen to the tracks before they are shown on the group page. You can read more about how to moderate a group here.

Having the tracks submitted to a group means that instead of being shared to your Stream, you will have them all in the same place to review. 

Please note: groups are only for publicly uploaded tracks.
