Soundcloud widgets…rock!

January 15th, 2010


I’m sure you have heard of SoundCloud by now. Its the perfect music sharing service without the “Eye Patch”.

This video explains SoundCloud perfectly. (I love her voice!)

SoundCloud: The Tour from SoundCloud on Vimeo.

SoundCloud has some pretty cool widgets available.

Just like the name. It is a bare bones, playable music link. There are also options available to “short code” add this to WordPress.


This widget is more suited to the blog sidebar. The widget offers links to info, sharing and ability to purchase tracks. There are volume controls and simple song stats as well.

This here is the showcase of the SoundCloud widgets. All the features of the “Expressionist” widget above, plus the ability to comment at any point on the track, right in the widget. I put an image in place, but I am also putting the live widget below so you can try it out and see.

Muzicons.com Simple mp3 widget

December 22nd, 2009


Muzicons.com allows you to create a simple, single play mp3 widget that is aimed at sharing your emotion.

We wrote about Muzicons earlier and not much has changed since then. However, this is a pretty cool way to quickly add a track to your page and I wanted to revisit it again.

Set up:
Simply go to Muzicons.com, pick your emoticon (75 to choose from). Search for (or upload) your favorite mp3 track, pick a widget design, add a small title and pick a color.
At this point you can try out the preview, copy the code and paste it into your web site.
The hardest part is deciding which mp3 track to play.

There is even a bb-code for placing this widget into a forum!
