Publishing to SoundCloud

From: Up and Running with Studio One

Video: Publishing to SoundCloud

I've mentioned several times throughout this course that Studio One allows for direct publishing of your finished work to Soundcloud. If I hit Cmd+E on Mac, Ctrl+E on Windows I bring up my Export Mixdown window. And I have the ability to choose Upload To Soundcloud under the Publishing window. But I prefer to publish my finished works to SoundCloud from the Project window, where I have already performed mastering as well as entered additional metadata for my finished work. I would choose Digital Release, change WAV file to MP3 for my audio file format, change my bitrate to 320, leave the sample rate at 44.1.

I would choose Digital Release, change WAV file to MP3 for my audio file format, change my bitrate to 320, leave the sample rate at 44.1.

And select Upload to Sound Cloud. Studio One will perform an offline export and prompt me to log in to my Sound Cloud account. The Sound Cloud client window pops up, and I choose Connect with Sound Cloud. I'll log in to my SoundCloud account, click Connect. And I'm provided with a verification code.

I'll copy and paste my verification code, and click Authorize. Now you'll notice in my Studio One client window I'm now authorized as J. Harris Lynda, and I have the ability to deauthorize if I so desire. Now it's time to look through the additional metadata windows here, and I'll call this rock song. There's also another window under the More Info, where I can enter release date, keywords for search engine optimization, label name, ISRC code number, and other URL information.

For now I'll leave those settings blank since I'm simply uploading this song to SoundCloud. Now this is just for song in a minor. Next I'll choose Urban 1, and I'll enter urban for song description And all I have to do to upload my songs to SoundCloud is click upload, and that, as you can see, I have a progress bar underneath State up here, showing me the percent of upload completion. I'll go back to my SoundCloud account, and underneath You, I select Tracks. And as you can see, the two tracks that I just uploaded are now on my SoundCloud account.

Let's take a listen to Urban 1. (SOUND)(MUSIC) Excellent. As you can see, this process is extremely seamless. I was able to take a finished mix from my mastering session, and upload it directly to my SoundCloud account.
