How To: Allow Downloading of a File on SoundCloud

Posted by

Someone messaged me on SoundCloud to let me know that I hadn’t enabled downloads on the file I uploaded yesterday. I hadn’t even realized you had to enable downloads. I didn’t think it was immediately clear how, so I figured I’d put up instructions.

1) Make sure you are logged into SoundCloud.

2) Navigate to your Track listing, by clicking on “You” in the menu at the top of the site. (No, don’t go to Tracks, that brings you to *other peoples’* tracks!)

3) Find the track you’d like to enable downloads on and click the corresponding edit icon. The icon looks like this:

SoundCloud Edit Icon

4) This will bring you to the Edit page for the track. Scroll down to the “Advanced settings” section and click on the “Downloads disabled Click to enable” box. It looks like this:

SoundCloud Downloads Disabled

5) Press the Save button.

Hint: It appears that you have to enable downloads on every file you upload individually. I can’t seem to find anywhere in the settings that makes this the default.
