It is official: SoundCloud is the Number 1 music platform in the world, with more than 10 million users. All these people enjoy listening to their favorite songs and other MP3 files online, and to share it with their friends. Unfortunately, SoundCloud doesn't allow users to download all the tracks people listen on the platform. But there are several solutions to do it and we will show you the best SoundCloud ripper and exactly how to rip SoundCloud music.

Part 1. Top 3 Software for Ripping Songs from SoundCloud

For those who are looking for Mac SoundCloud rippers, here are the best three of them:

iMusic for Mac is the best tool if you want to download music from SoundCloud, YouTube, Spotify, MySpace, and other 500 radio stations.

This is an online downloader for SoundCloud that will integrate with your browser, in order to allow you to download any SoundCloud track. You will need a SoundCloud account, and this site will download any song for you. You can download one song at once, and you need to click the Done button before starting another download, in order not to download the same song multiple times. It is a nice app, but it allows only MP3 files to be downloaded, so you will need a converter as well if you need another format.

#3. SoundDrain


The last SoundCloud ripping tool is a nice app that allows you to download music from SoundCloud, in the MP3 format. Very easy to use and free, this app does a good job for its size. It is also fast, and it doesn't require signing up for it. Simply go to their website, copy the SoundCloud URL of your favorite song, and enjoy. We have to admit it is quite annoying to copy/paste the URL of each song, especially if you are planning to download multiple tracks. This app is recommended only if you want to download one or two songs.
