Earlier this year we launched our Band-in-a-Box Radio SoundCloud page, which is packed full of songs that have been shared on our User Showcase Forum.

With the SoundCloud iTunes & Google Play apps, you can play the Band-in-a-Box Radio songs wherever you go!

We've made listening even easier by splitting up the songs by genre: Jazz, Rock & Pop, and Country & Folk. We've also added playlists for Recent Songs and Featured Songs.

If you've been submitting songs to our User Showcase Forum, but don't have a SoundCloud account yet, please sign up for one and use it to share your songs in the future - that way we can add them to our Band-in-a-Box Radio playlist!

What about playing any of this via my desktop iTunes on my home computer? I still haven't found the way to do that. I tried using the "Playlist" saving feature on SC, which gave me an .m3u file but my iTunes had no idea what to do with it confused

Hi Icelander,

If you're on your home computer, why not just run it from the browser?

I did a quick search in YouTube for "How to get music from SoundCloud onto iTunes" and there are a few tutorials there that could help.

I have to be honest, I'm not overly familiar with the iTunes App for SoundCloud, but did look at the detailed description for it (here: https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/soundcloud/id336353151?mt=8). Are you wanting to use SoundCloud offline? According to the App details, it's possible with a SoundCloud Go account: https://soundcloud.com/go

But, since the Go option isn't available in Canada yet, I was unable to test it.

Something like that, yes, or just to have it running in the background on something low CPU while I'm doing something else on the computer etc.

Same issue with Iceland smirk

Thanks for the info and the other reading material which I'll be looking closer at and see if it gets me somewhere further.

Interestingly, I did find a way to save the track list as an .m3u, like I mentioned above, and I've discovered that while iTunes can't cope with it, other media players like my Quicktime Player can (and same goes for the VLC media player). So I think I'll just stick with those until iTunes "Radio" makes a way to include SC (if that ever happens).

I found the following on page 369 of my BB 2016 manual:
"SoundCloud
When you upload an audio file to SoundCloud, a copy of the will be saved in this folder."

A copy of the what? Where can I find it?

regards,
Pietro

If that is an accurate quote from the manual, then obviously there's a missing word there, good catch. It should say "...a copy of the audio file..." (although the grammar geek in me would prefer it be simply "a copy of it").
And the folder in question is called SoundCloud, found within your Band-in-a-Box folder.
