If a track is only on Soundcloud, what can be done?

I don’t have a Soundcloud account, they have nothing to offer me. But often some artist makes an interesting track and drops on there. I can’t youtube-dl the site without an account, but I’m wondering if it is even worth it: are all uploads to Soundcloud mp3?

If that is the case, then I think my next step would be to create a checklist to contact artists and try to obtain their audio directly.

Thoughts? :slight_smile:

Recommendation: GitHub - flyingrub/scdl: Soundcloud Music Downloader

This does not require an account for me. Docs imply it can use an account but it doesn’t seem to be required. I installed via pip.

I just learned about Funkwhale, a federated Soundcloud-like thing.

The way I found out about it was a friend on Secure Scuttlebutt posted about their abuse audit.
