Tutorial 9 – Exporting, CD burning and sharing ► Uploading audio to SoundCloud

Tip: By default, Cakewalk SoundCloud lets you upload either a .wav file or an .mp3 file. If you want to upload a different audio format, first use the File > Export > Audio command to export to the desired format, then go to Utilities > Share with SoundCloud and select the exported file.
2.
Go to File > Export > Audio to open the Export Audio dialog box.
3.
In the Files of type list, select one of the following:

SoundCloud - CD Quality. Creates a 16-bit 44.1kHz .wav file.
list-image
SoundCloud - MP3. Creates a 256kBit/s .mp3 file.
list-image
SoundCloud - FLAC. FLAC is a royalty-free high quality lossless audio compression codec. Files compressed with FLAC can be 30-50% smaller than the original wav file and, unlike MP3, there is no loss of audio quality.

Under Bounce Settings, select the desired settings, such as channel format, sample rate and bit depth.

SONAR exports the selected audio to the specified format, then launches Cakewalk SoundCloud (see The Cakewalk SoundCloud interface). In Cakewalk SoundCloud, the Title, Artwork and File Location fields are pre-populated.

When you upload a song to SoundCloud, you can choose to also send automatic “push” notifications to your linked Facebook and/or Twitter accounts. You must configure your Facebook and/or Twitter setting using the account management tools at SoundCloud.com first before being able to share on Facebook and/or Twitter.
To include a short message with the push notification, enter text (up to 119 characters, no HTML) in the Message field. If this field is empty, the text in the Description field will accompany the song post.
A. Message B. Share on Facebook (click Setup to configure) C. Share on Twitter (click Setup to configure)
Note: If you have multiple Facebook and/or Twitter accounts that you would like to send push notifications to, you can link to multiple Facebook and Twitter accounts via the account management tools at SoundCloud.com.
