Hello Audacity developers!
I’m currently working on a web-based service for music professionals called SoundCloud. Not sure if you heard about us since we have been running the site secretly over the last couple of months but it’s already used by many artists and labels. SoundCloud is for musicians and producers who want to have all their music in “the cloud”, manage it all in one place as well as sharing it with friends and colleagues in a real easy way.
The thing is that people are more and more often requesting ways of exporting/saving tracks from their favorite software right to SoundCloud. However, since our main focus is the platform and the tools on the web service side we thought it might be worth a shot too see if anyone here might be interested in building something like that for Audacity?
We have built an API through which you can access all functionality within the SoundCloud platform. The API is all about providing an easy way to make audio and music available on the web. The API makes the 10000+ tracks uploaded by artists on the SoundCloud audio platform available in a standards-based and open way (REST/oAuth). We have stated our thoughs on development around SoundCloud in our Developers Manifesto, feel free to read it here: http://soundcloud.com/api/manifesto or just go straigt to our api pages: http://soundcloud.com/api
Here is also a good tour of the service: http://soundcloud.com/tour
