SoundCloud is an online audio distribution platform and music sharing website based in Berlin, Germany that enables its users to upload, promote, and share audio. Below are the steps to publish your audio file to SoundCloud.

  1. Create an account. You can use your existing Facebook or Google account. You can also create a SoundCloud specific account.
  2. After creating an account, go to the Upload page and follow the instructions on how to upload a track to SoundCloud.
  3. SoundCloud offers two publishing options. Public means anyone can listen to your track, and it will show up immediately on your SoundCloud profile page and your followers’ Streams. Private tracks are hidden from your followers after upload. You can then decide to share them exclusively via private links. Private tracks won't show up on your public profile and can't be searched for within SoundCloud. You can adjust whether a track is public or private by following these steps in the settings section of your track.
