Download SoundCloud Songs as MP3 with a Bookmarklet
SoundCloud is a popular online music and audio sharing service where a lot of bands and musicians will post their music for others to listen to. Frequently they’ll include a download link to songs, but depending on the posters account, they often have download limits that can be quickly maxed out on popular songs. The easiest solution of course is to just buy the song, but that’s not always an option either, so that’s where this bookmarklet comes into play.
You can either just copy and paste the string below into the browsers URL bar while on a SoundCloud page, or save it as a bookmarklet that can be clicked on any SoundCloud page to activate the “Download MP3″ button.
Save the code above as a bookmarklet, or you can grab a Safari Extension.
Just don’t expect stellar audio quality, because the songs are downloaded as 128kbps MP3s. That’s not a big deal if you planned on compressing the audio to save space on an iPod or iPhone anyway, but if you’re listening to the music on a high quality stereo you may notice the faint hiss and flatter sound of compressed audio.
Heads up to HackerNews for the find.
