NEW YORK, NY (January 25, 2024) - SoundCloud is partnering with cutting-edge music technology companies Fadr, Soundful, and Voice-Swap to introduce integrations that allow artists to upload songs created with assistive AI tools directly to SoundCloud.

This move follows in the footsteps of past integrations with Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) like GarageBand and FL Studio, and reflects a continuation of SoundCloud’s commitment to supporting artists with easy access to tools that support innovation and creativity:

Fadr gives anyone the power to create mashups and remixes of their own favorite songs regardless of their experience level.

Soundful AI generates distinctive, studio-quality music for creators.

Voice-Swap allows musicians to transform vocal stems using generative AI to match the style of licensed artist voices.

“At SoundCloud, we take pride in being ground zero for musical experimentation. That’s why we’re home to what’s next in music,” said SoundCloud CEO Eliah Seton. “AI is top of mind for us in this context, and we’re excited about how this technology can be applied to serve and empower artists. These partners, which we’ve selected intentionally, reflect the very best of what the industry has to offer in this arena: tools that open up new creative avenues and make artists’ lives a little bit easier.”

The new integrations, which will be available soon, allow artists to easily share newly created songs to SoundCloud through a built-in “Upload to SoundCloud” option that will live inside each individual tool. Songs uploaded directly to SoundCloud will also be automatically tagged to indicate which tool they were made with (ex: “Made with Fadr”). Artists will be able to edit their newly uploaded tracks directly from their SoundCloud profile page.

This announcement marks the latest milestone in SoundCloud’s efforts to empower artists on the platform. In tandem with this announcement, SoundCloud is applying new methods to prevent AI abuse and protect its artists by blocking AI bots from crawling its site and training models on its catalog. Since launching SoundCloud for Artists in 2022, SoundCloud has introduced a range of updates including the new Fans tool for artists, direct messages on mobile, a new Comments tool, a global licensing deal with Merlin, and additional Member Benefits partners.
