This project is NO LONGER MAINTAINED, do not use it!

8 years, 11 months, 11 days after the first commit I realized I’ve lost interest, motivation and time for maintaining SoundCleod and decided to retire the project. The GitHub repository is read-only from now, the domain will continue working until it expires on 2022-05-05.

It is strongly recommended to uninstall SoundCleod to prevent future security issues, for which no fixes will be released.

For those seeking alternatives I recommend switching to the official SoundCloud Desktop Player or using any modern web browser.

What is SoundCleod?

SoundCleod is a desktop application which brings SoundCloud to macOS and Windows without using a web browser.

Compared to using in a web browser like Chrome or Firefox you will get the following extras when using SoundCleod:
