Audio will now be generated by the system to be used with the "sample creator". This may take a moment depending on the length of the track. Once the sample has been generated, you can use the player to "cut" the track down to length you require by dragging the handles undeneath the waveform.

Most of the fields will be automatically filled out for you based on the information in the LMS, but the fields can be edited if you need to add/remove any information.

6. Make sure the "Access" field is set to the correct value, "Private" will mean only you can see the track until you change it to "Public".

You will need to wait for a few minutes while the track is sent to SoundCloud, this can vary depending on the track length, and the transfer speed on SoundCloud. You will receive a link to the track when your track has completed, but it will only be active once SoundCloud has "processed" the track their end, which can take a further few minutes.
We will deliver to SoundCloud from the WAV file in our system, or the 320k MP3 if the WAV file is not present.
SoundCloud transcode all "streamed" tracks to 128k MP3, but if the user chooses to make the track downloadable, SoundCloud allow people to download whatever was uploaded.
