SoundCloud is a music sharing website where talented artists come together and distribute their music creations. It is certainly agreeable when I say that SoundCloud is house to many of the amazing songs that aren’t available anywhere else. Well, signing in to SoundCloud every time you want to listen to a song is a bit frustrating.

How To Download SoundCloud Songs
This is why you need to make use of its downloading feature. Although SoundCloud itself offers you the option to download songs, there are still some songs that you cannot download because of the reason that its artist exempted it for free copy distribution. But with the help of our guide on how to download SoundCloud songs, you’ll learn further to counter this problem. Without any further ado, we’ll get right onto the point.
Using SoundCloud’s download option
- In order to download songs directly from SoundCloud, sign in to the platform with your account first
- Then, find the song that you want to download from SoundCloud
- Next, right beneath the waveform of every song, you’ll find a few options. From them, click on the Download options if it’s there
- If there’s no download option, then click on the More option
- After clicking on the More option, click on the Download File option and then proceed to download it to a destination folder
What to do if I don’t have an option to download from SoundCloud?
If you think that there’s no download option for the song that you wish to download in SoundCloud, then it simply means that the artist of that particular song is preventing it from being downloaded. Although being able to download songs from such an amazing place is a really cool thing, we can’t really do anything if the artist decides not to sell copies for free. In such cases, you can follow the below two methods. However, please bear in mind that the following methods rely on third-party services, which can harm or expose your privacy and security.
1. Download SoundCloud songs using an online extractor website
An Online Extractor is a website that’ll help you download songs from SoundCloud, even the ones that are exempted from free downloads. Some of the most famous online extractors are KlickAud, Sound Wall, and SingleMango. Every online extractor follows the same process for downloading you the copy of a song so we’ll demonstrate how one of these websites work. For the demonstration, we’ll get into KlickAud(not available for iOS) for downloading a song from SoundCloud.
- To start with, go to KlickAud and paste in the URL of the song in SoundCloud
- Next, click on the Convert button
- Finally, check if you’ve entered the correct URL and then click on the Download The Song button and proceed to download the file to a destination folder
2. Download SoundCloud songs using a browser extension
In addition to an Online Extractor, the internet also has a browser extension that’ll help you download SoundCloud songs. Using extensions for download songs from SoundCloud is pretty simple and takes lesser effort compared to downloading from an online extractor. Today, we’ll use Addoncrop’s SoundCloud Music Downloader to execute this method.

- Then, from the right side of the screen, choose the browser that you want to install the extension
- Next, click on the Install Via Crosspilot button, which is right below the browser selection menu
