  • To set offset and limit for tracks list:
sc-syncer -u USER_TO_SYNC -o OUTPUT_DIRECTORY -L LIMIT -O OFFSET

/!\ Limit can’t be greater than 200.

Ignoring tracks

You can ignore some tracks you don’t want to sync locally.

To do this create a file in OUTPUT_DIRECTORY named .ignore. Each track in this file will be ignored.

  • Example:

To ignore https://soundcloud.com/trapmusic/vexed-goodbye-by-j-nitrous add in .ignore file:

trapmusic/vexed-goodbye-by-j-nitrous

Tag support

soundcloud-syncer support id3 tag from version 0.2.

It writes ID3 tag after each downloaded mp3 file. You can disable this feature with --without-tag option:

sc-syncer -u USER_TO_SYNC -o OUTPUT_DIRECTORY --without-tag

You can re-write mp3 tag with sc-tagger tool. This tool expect a file or directory as first argument.

File’s name format must be “{id}-{permalink}.mp3” to be tagged. Track ID is necessary to retrieve data from soundcloud’s API.

  • for a file, it will write id3 tag if it’s a mp3 file.
sc-tagger /path/to/1337-file.mp3

You can specify track ID for a single file:

sc-tagger /path/to/file.mp3 --id 1337
  • for a directory, sc-tagger find all mp3 file and tags them (–id option is not supported).
sc-tagger /path/to/directory/

It may be useful to update tracks downloaded with soundcloud-syncer 0.1!

MP3 conversion

You can convert non-mp3 files with `–convert` option. This feature requires pydub package that depends to `ffmpeg` or `avconv`. See pydub’s readme for more informations.

To convert non-mp3 files after each download:

sc-syncer -u USER_TO_SYNC -o OUTPUT_DIRECTORY --convert

This will create a backup directory at `OUTPUT_DIRECTORY/backups/` where will be placed original files before conversion, nothing is deleted.
