SoundCloud is a site that allows you to upload your own music. You can play SoundCloud tracks through any of the SoundCloud players in SmallWorlds. (You can tell they’re SoundCloud players by their orange display panels).
You will need to create an account on Soundcloud if you want to upload and play your own soundtracks. You can also search for and play music that other people have uploaded, as long as those tracks as marked public.
When uploading tracks, it's a good idea to identify your setlist with a unique name so you can search for it. Please note that Soundcloud does not allow searches of words that are four letters or less.
Examples of ways to search on the SoundCloud Widget. (Include quotation marks to search for that exact phrase):

- Search by user/account name of a SoundCloud account:
