Recently SoundCloud has become one of the more popular audio streaming platforms, with people flocking to it to share their music, sound bites, and other audio content. As you would expect you will have to be online to listen to any of the content on SoundCloud however, and if you want to save it to your Mac things could get a bit complicated.
While there are several methods that you could use to download SoundCloud audio clips, none is as easy or as versatile as by capturing them with Movavi Screen Capture for Mac. Although it is a screen recorder at its core, it can quite easily be set up as a SoundCloud downloader for Mac so that it records audio from your speakers.
Assuming you already have the SoundCloud page containing the audio clip that you want to record open, you can get started by launching Movavi Screen Capture for Mac and selecting the ‘Record screen’ option. Since you aren’t going to be saving any video footage you can just click anywhere, and the interface will then appear.
On the Movavi Screen Capture for Mac interface you’ll see a ‘speaker’ icon under ‘System Audio’ and you need to make sure that it is highlighted. If it isn’t highlighted you can click on it once, and it should change color to green.
If everything checks out you can start recording and play the SoundCloud audio clip at the same time. It should be easy to control the recording with the on-screen controls in the interface, or alternatively you could use the hotkeys in Movavi Screen Capture for Mac if you prefer.
In any case once the recording is over you can go over it in the window that will pop up. At this juncture Movavi Screen Capture for Mac will also let you cut it into segments and trim out any unwanted parts – which is something that you may want to take advantage of. When you are satisfied you can then save the results, and all you need to do is choose an audio format such as MP3, AAC, and so on.
As you can see it isn’t complicated at all, and the same can be said of all the other features in Movavi Screen Capture for Mac. While most of them are more related to recording videos, it would be a good idea to explore what they have to offer – just in case you ever wish to use them. Now that you know how to save SoundCloud audio clips, why not give it a try and save one of your favorites so that you can listen to it whenever you like or transfer it to any device.
