How to Download Songs from Soundcloud?

There used to be a time when YouTube was the only option for artists looking to make a name for themselves in the music industry to get hype for their art. However, several other great platforms have emerged in the last few years, offering umpteen opportunities for singers and composers.

SoundCloud, being among these, has emerged as one of the most loved music-sharing platforms on the internet today. This is also where major artists like Kanye West, Chance The Rapper and Drake drop new tracks and surprise albums for listeners to enjoy.

One thing that has troubled the website users for a long time is being unable to listen to their favorite songs offline. While the website works brilliantly as long as a user is connected to the internet, it fails to offer anything without the internet connection. That is why today we bring you some easy ways you can download your most loved tracks from SoundCloud to your system.

#1. Downloading From SoundCloud

Most people do not know this but SoundCloud has an inbuilt feature that allows you to download music. Though not all tracks can be stored on the system using this feature, a good amount of them still can be. To do so, first, you have to make sure that you are logged in to your account.

After that, if the song you are listening to is available for download, you will see a ‘Free Download’ button just below the waveform and right next to ‘Share’ and ‘More.' Since the button is customizable for users, it could either redirect you to the website of the uploader or maybe directly download right there.
