Question

How can I change the order of my tracks in my playlist and/or profile page?


I'm new here and just uploaded 13 tracks, complete with tags and descriptions. PLEASE tell me there is a way I can change the order these tracks are appearing on my profile page and in my playlist!?! The thought of erasing it all and reuploading, relabeling and retagging all these tracks gives me nightmares and cold sweats!!! :)

I actually uploaded the files in the order I wanted them to appear - songs for the top of the list first, which sounded logical! But logic be damned! Now everything is backwards! I guess "saving the best for last" ruled the thinking in that process!? Wha!?

Thanks!

One thing I've figured out - the playlist will list the songs in the order you add them, so first in will remain on top of list. That's better than nothing. But below the playlist (on your profile page) your songs will still be listed in reverse order of how you upload them. Which in my case this is a pain, as the first tracks showing on my profile page (after the playlist) are 2 bonus tracks - tracks that are the furthest from my faves! Argh!

Hey there,
Thanks for writing in!

Your SoundCloud profile stream will display tracks in a chronological order with the newest and freshest content on the top. If you wish to highlight one of your particularly noteworthy tracks you'd like others to enjoy first, we highly recommend using the Spotlight feature which comes with all our Pro accounts. With the Spotlight feature you can pin up to five tracks or playlists to the top of your profile stream.

Otherwise, you can rearrange your tracks by creating a playlist and putting them in the playlist to move around. You can also add a playlist to your Spotlight to highlight as well.

Creating a playlist is nice and simple. To add a track to a playlist, click the 'Add to Playlist' button beneath the track, then select the playlist you want to add the track to. To start a new playlist, enter it's title at the bottom of the drop-down menu. If you need to change the order of the tracks within your playlist, go to its page and hover over the track number of the track you would like to move. Then simply click and drag this track into it's desired position. You can also update a playlist by adding new tracks later.

Hope this helps!

Best,
Mathis
Will a "playlist" change how others see the track order?
Can I change the order of a playlist once it's created? Or can't I???
This:

Hi,

Please see on our help center for more info. Rearranging tracks inside a playlist can be done after upload.

When adding tracks/mixes to a playlist why doesn't it add at the top of the playlist. Newest content at the top is the most logical way, as it is with the stream. There is no way to even set this as a setting with our profile, as far as we can see.

Manually moving every show we add to a show's playlist is a time consuming and totally avoidable issue - if SoundCloud can just make this an option at least, if not the default.
I think that I found a work around to this problem. I have edited my playlist with some more tags and also changed the name to `01 - something` and it is now displayed as my first playlist.

Thought it might be useful for people whom are desperately looking for a way to just do a workaround!
I finally figured it out thanks to another post in a forum by https://community.soundcloud.com/members/dubstep-fm-7424717:

playlists and albums are both 'sets', and both allow the re-ordering of the tracks. if you go to the set page (album or playlist) and click edit, then click the tracks tab, you should be able to click and drag the tracks to change their position in the list.

It took some hunting, but I did it.

*I have the pro plan- not certain if it works with other (no) plans*
