SoundCloud is an online audio platform for music-enthusiasts enabling them to share, promote and distribute their music/art-work. It’s kind of  a social music-community.

You can upload your audio files to SoundCloud and share them with other users in the class and around the world.

But unfortunately at this time SoundCloud is not offering to you a way to syndicate – or let me better say ‘to subscribe’ – to your work. A syndication is another great way to distribute your masterpieces for example from the web to your desktop, mobile device, blog, newsletter, Other systems as Facebook/ Twitter or online-offline RSS-Reader. People can be still connected to you and your work by receiving your updates and new tracks automatically by subscribing to your so called podcast.

podcast describes a series of digital media files that are released episodically and downloaded through web syndication similiar to RSS, which is one of the biggest internet evolution in the last years, imho.

SoundCloud has an excellent API, which let us, for example,  have access to our own uploaded files; it is important to read the developer policies before to understand the process and handle this in a careful way.

In this little demo i want to show how easy it is to make your own podcast using their API (this example handles only HTTP method GET) and then using Yahoo! Pipes, a webbased tool to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup your content (check out this video about pipes).

 

Answer the questions below using google or your favorite search engine.

1.  What are ID3 Tags?

2.  Are there any size limitations to podcasts?

3.  What file formats are acceptable in a podcast?

4.  What annoys you most about technology?

5.  What would be the theme song for a movie being made about your life?

  • Producing Natural-Sounding MIDI Notes
    When making electronically-produced music, you’ll find yourself often programming notes rather than playing them.
