Rome wasn’t built in a day. And SoundCloud didn’t become popular overnight. But it has become a hotspot Mecca of sorts for artists, musicians, and Podcasters to upload, record, promote, and share their original audio works to nearly 200-million SoundCloud listeners around the world.
While it’s easy to listen to music or audio programs on SoundCloud, with either a player or from within a web browser, downloading and saving requires a few more steps, lessened to the point of easy by using the free SoundCloud Downloader for Mac.
It’s easy. Enter the SoundCloud music URL into SoundCloud Downloader.
SoundCloud Downloader can handle up to five simultaneous downloads so enter one after another for most efficient results. Any single download can be canceled with a click, and the app notifies you of how many songs are still waiting to be downloaded (it’s a queue system).
Also integrated into SoundCloud Downloader is a built-in audio browser so you can preview songs or audio without having to open up Safari. And, of course, it uses Notification Center in OS X to let you know when the downloads have completed.
Songs or audio can be downloaded to your Mac, either the Desktop or wherever you choose. There’s also an option to add audio to iTunes so it can be synced up to iPhone or iPad. If you have a SoundCloud account you can also download your favorites songs automatically.
SoundCloud ain’t exactly iTunes, but not bad for free, right?
