I've tested this on my Mac and it works great, I especially like the option to download 5 tracks at the same time.

I updated a soundcloud downloader guide to include this software too, so hopefully this results in more exposure to this program. Spot on music downloading tool if like me you're a fan of Soundcloud.

I Just d/l this app and got some music from sound cloud. Tried to sync with my iPod, and I get an error message that reads: 'error: the disk was not ejected properly. If possible, always eject a disk before unplugging it or turning it off.' Then i close that window, and my iPod ejects on its own, and I get another error message that reads: 'iPod disk cannot sync because disk cannot be found.' and then I close that window and I get a third error message that states that a track I d/l with SCD cannot be written to file or synced with my iPod. After these messages my iPod auto-ejects.

This does not seem the fault of this app. You should check whether iPod supports playback of the file format of the particular music files.

The problem does not lie with the SCD app. You simply have "Enable disk usage" enabled on your iPod - You can find this setting in the summary page of your iPod in iTunes. If you then simply unplug your iPod from your mac you will see all sorts of warnings. Basically with enabling that option in iTunes, you turn your iPod into an external USB stick. SCD doesn't mess around with iTunes. To import a song it will simply open it and nothing else.

Mac OS 10.6 isn't supported anymore. I didn't see that my programming tool changed this setting automatically...

Hi, Thanks for creating this app Birdicode/team. Awesome job. I am having an issue though, unfortunately - hope it is fixable. I post this here as the developer website seems to be unreachable. Whenever I select a page of songs and want the app to download all of them, it seems to work fine. But then there is an issue when I play them back in iTunes. The songs all import fine, and if you scrub through a song it will play at all points. But if you leave the song playing normally, it will invariably end early at a random point (always the same point per same song, but different in each song). I have checked that there is no metadata in the song/get info telling the song to end early.. Is this a case of corrupted file? ... Lots of times? Confused. I would say this has happened to about 50% of the songs I downloaded from the one page. And if I check back on the original sound cloud page, the songs are complete there too. If you want to try reproduce the issue with the same sound cloud page: https://soundcloud.com/alexcruz/sets/deephouse-beauties-103-part-3

Hi,

Well that's really strange. It did happen to me once when I copied the song from iTunes over to my iPod. After removing and adding the song back into the library it seemed to work fine again.

SCD just downloads the songs as it is found on soundcloud.com. SCD will only modify the downloaded song, if you have ID3 tagging enabled.

Would be great to hear back from you, if the problem is still persistent in the newer updates. Feel free to send me a mail to birdicode@gmail.com.

Cheers,
Sean

sending you email Sean, I just revisited the program today and it's exactly the same. I downloaded 8 songs from one page, opened them all in itunes and everything appears fine. Until you leave them playing. Suddenly you find itunes jumping from the middle of the current track to the beginning of the next one.

Any thoughts? (3 years down the line from my post above haha)

update: The issues I had were in fact itunes issues and it appears, nothing to do with SCD. Cheers Sean, sorry for false positive! Great app

The app works as described. Haven't faced any issues so far. However, i feel it is better to stick to the web versions of the "Downloaders" instead of installing it on your Mac. The ones i have found useful/working are: http://soundcloud-dl.com http://anything2mp3.com

At first it looked promising. I entered the URL for my playlist that I've collected and it contains 40 tracks. I start download and it looks kinda fishy. 39 tracks downloaded. Hmmm odd. So I try again. For some reason; all files are deleted and now I only have 29 tracks in the folder. Odd magic. So what I do i start pressing the button "I cant buy this track" that is next to some tracks and the app downloads. But instead of just getting the tracks that was missing, all are deleted, MAGIC! DARK MAGIC, and now I have 25 tracks in my folder. This is some Lord of the Rings magic now. So what might the problem be? Too many tracks? And if so; Why is it restarting the process every time and not just fetch the tracks that are missing? This way I can update my folder when I add new tracks, instead of downloading them all over again.

Well that is some dark magic going on there. The app actually doesn't delete any downloaded songs at all. Could it be that you choose the "import into iTunes without launching iTunes"? SCD will then move the downloaded file into a different folder where it will be imported next time you launch iTunes.

About the missing track you had: Sometimes it isn't possible for SCD to download all the music. Soundcloud has some special techniques to stop anybody listening to the track outside of their website.
You may also notice that SCD can only download a max of 50 songs per entered link. I will be changing this tough in the future.

Doesn't work. Pressing download icon from the search interface doesn't do anything. Entering full URL shows it's being downloaded for couple secs and then just abrupts with no song being downloaded.
