SoundCloud Allows To Record Sounds On The Go

OOur favorite SoundCloud service has announced significant new developments aimed at better serving its growing community of more than two million sound creators.

Saving recording in iPhone app

Users are now able to instantly record audio to their SoundCloud profile from a “record” button.

Accessible via the website or SoundCloud app for iPhone, the new feature enables anyone to capture sound on the move and then share it anywhere – across their social networks, websites, SoundCloud community or simply between friends.

SoundCloud also announces the upgrade of its free iPhone application. The app includes the ability to instantly record and upload, as well as the option to add an image and location to accompany the sound.

Since becoming available in the App Store a year ago, the app has been downloaded more than 60,000 times (I use it daily myself). Check out the demonstration video at the bottom of thispost.

Since launching in 2008, SoundCloud has been largely embraced by the music industry, with artists as diverse as Kylie, Deadmau5, Moby and Caribou using it to upload, promote and share music. But more recently, the same functionality has been applied to a far wider range of sound creation, including: Tyler and Tara, a couple cycling round the world and sharing the meaningful sounds of their journey, or the Royal Society of Literature who upload and share all of their lectures.
