How do I upload my sounds?

Before you start, make sure you are logged into your account and have confirmed your email address. Don't forget to check your inbox and Spam folder for an email confirmation from us. Once you've done this, you can start posting! 

Click the "Upload" button in the top, right hand corner of your Stream or Public Profile or visit http://soundcloud.com/upload



Now you need to choose how you want to upload your sounds. 


Upload files from your computer 

You can press the "Choose Files" button to upload AIFF, WAVE, FLACC, OFF, MP2, MP3 or ACC files that have already been saved to your computer.




Record directly from your computer

You can press the "REC" button and begin recording sounds directly from your computer. You will see the sound recording and the option to stop the recording, like this: 




Once you've finished recording, click "Upload your recording". While your sound is posting, you can enter the sound details and set permissions for downloads, widgets, and more. Once the sound is fully posted and transcoded, hit "Save" at the bottom of the page. 



If you're experiencing problems with our main Flash-based uploader, please make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash installed. If you continue to have troubles, try our old-skool uploader.
