nehm is a console tool written in Go. It can download your likes and search tracks from SoundCloud. All downloaded tracks are ID3 tagged and can be added to iTunes playlist, if you use macOS.

nehm wasn't tested on Windows machine, so it can be very buggy on it. I'll be very thankful, if you will report any bug.

If you have ideas to improve nehm, issues and pull requests are always welcome! Also, if you have difficulties with installation/configuration/usage of nehm, don't hesitate to write an issue. I will answer as soon as possible.


Install via go command:

$ go get -u

or you can download and install binary from latest release.


First of all, you should configure nehm:

  1. Create a file .nehmconfig in your home directory

  2. Write in it configuration, i.e. set three variables in YAML format:

permalink - permalink of your SoundCloud profile (last word in your profile URL. More in FAQ)

dlFolder - filesystem path to download folder, where will be downloaded all tracks. By default, your tracks are being downloaded to your home directory

itunesPlaylist - name of iTunes playlist, where will be added all tracks (if you're using macOS). By default, your tracks are not being added to iTunes


permalink: bogem
dlFolder: /Users/bogem/Music
itunesPlaylist: iPod

Usage Examples

Type nehm help to list of all available commands or nehm help COMMAND for specific command.

Also commands may be abbreviated to one symbol length. For example, you can input nehm s instead of nehm search.

Q: What is permalink?

A: Permalink is the last word in your profile url. Example: for profile url permalink is qwerty

Q: How can I add track to iTunes' music library, but not to any playlist?

A: It depends on language you're using on your Mac. The name of your iTunes' music library you can see here:

iTunes music master library

For example, english users should use nehm get -i Music, russian users - nehm get -i Музыка.
