How to Use SoundCloud to Host Audio Files in Dreamweaver

By Janine Warner

The web startup SoundCloud has figured out a way to defeat the pirates, allowing site owners a free and easy way to share their Dreamweaver creations. The site includes tools that allow your friends or contacts to comment on specific portions of your audio file that they like and to easily share opinions with others. You can upload, embed, and promote your audio files through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Google+.

To sign up for a free SoundCloud account, follow these steps:

  1. Open a browser and navigate to SoundCloud.

    The SoundCloud home page opens.


  2. Click the Sign Up button.

    A window opens, allowing you to sign in using your Facebook Profile ID or your e-mail address. If you’ve already signed up for an account, choose the Log In tab at the top of the Sign Up dialog box and sign in.

  3. Follow the site’s instructions for uploading your audio file.

    SoundCloud allows you to choose the genre for your audio file (such as a podcast interview or a work-in-progress guitar solo) and type tags so other people can discover your audio file as well.

  4. After your file has been uploaded, you can choose to publicize it and share it with friends by posting the file’s SoundCloud link on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, or Google+.
