Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding to iTunes and sharing with SoundCloud, part of Pro Tools 10 New Features.
When you're bouncing down a mix in Pro Tools 10, you can now automatically add it to your iTunes library and also share it with your SoundCloud account. If we go to File > Bounce to > Disk, in the Bounce window we can see these two options down here: Add To iTunes Library and Share with SoundCloud. Now these only work on Interleaved and Mono (summed) files. If we choose Multiple mono, they get grayed out. So I'm going to check these off and hit Bounce and we're going to bounce just a little bit of this music.
When we're sharing with SoundCloud we can add a lot of information here to go along with our file. We can add a description. We can choose what kind of license we want to offer for music, the type of music, and a bunch of other things here. I'm going to hit Share and the bounce will start. (music playing) When the bounce is done you'll see that you need to connect to SoundCloud to actually upload the file.
Now I'm not going to do that here, but imagine putting your own information in here and having the audio go directly to your SoundCloud account. And now we can also check that our music showed up directly into iTunes, and there it is. You can also export clips directly to SoundCloud. So if I highlight this base track here and go to my Clips menu and choose Export Clips as Files, you'll see that Share with SoundCloud is an option, but it's not available until we choose Interleaved as the file format.
So with these new bouncing and exporting features in Pro Tools 10, it's much easier to share your music with the world via SoundCloud and iTunes.
