SoundCloud is a platform that puts your sound at the heart of communities, websites and even apps. Watch conversations, connections and social experiences happen, with your sound as the spark.
So, I recently discovered SoundCloud which is an online sound community which allows members to upload sounds they have recorded whether they are pre mixed, sound effects, music, dialogue - whatever. SoundCloud deals with most audio formats and you can even funk up the wave forms to make them look pretty in the unique SoundCloud Waveform Player. As well as sharing these sounds with the SoundCloud community who comment and collaborate on specific collections of audio, you can share sounds with friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, Email, Youtube & Dropbox (as well as many more)
SoundCloud provides you with a Dashboard/News Feed style of notifications which tracks the activity of your friends, groups and the popularity and comments on your uploaded sounds.
SoundCloud has also crafted it’s own Widget which allows you to transport your sounds to your blog followers.
And if you thought that all that was cool, they have also developed over 100 applications which help to distribute, edit and upload your sounds via mobile devices and personal computer – it even provides a platform to develop your very own app.
So, for free software – this is pretty damn good & really opens up the whole ‘sound community’, giving groups the chance to have a forum where they can not only share ideas but physical sounds in one place.
