I am using soundcloud API for getting tracks. I applied two filters "q" and "types" but it's only applying "q" filter.

It returns correct results if I only apply "q" filter
https://api.soundcloud.com/v1/tracks?filter=public&downloadable=true&q=thunder&consumer_...

It also returns correct results if i only apply "types" filter
https://api.soundcloud.com/v1/tracks?filter=public&downloadable=true&types=live&consumer...

But if I apply both "q" and "types" filters then it only returns results matching "q" filter
https://api.soundcloud.com/v1/tracks?filter=public&downloadable=true&q=thunder&types=liv...

Secondly I want only downloadable tracks.

I tried downloadable=true parameter in URL but it still includes non-downloadable tracks in response.

Hi Amado,

Thanks for posting on the forum. It’s great to hear that you’re making use of SoundCloud’s public API, but I am afraid SoundCloud does not have a dedicated API support team at this point. Our customer support team who handles requests which come in over email, or here on the forum, are focused on providing account-related support.

That being said; If you are looking for help in building an application on top of SoundCloud’s API, I would recommend looking through SoundCloud’s stackoverflow page (http://stackoverflow.com/tags/soundcloud), and reviewing our developer website (https://developers.soundcloud.com/). If you wish to report a bug in our public API, then please do so by emailing API@soundcloud.com. These are the support resources we have in place for app developers.

If you have a question about acceptable commercial use of SoundCloud’s API, then we would please ask you to refer to the following section of our API terms of use (https://developers.soundcloud.com/docs/api/terms-of-use#commercial). Any application reported to us which violates the API terms of use will have their access to the SoundCloud API permanently revoked.

Lastly, if after following the suggestions above you are still seeking support on using SoundCloud’s API please contact us by email with a link to a Stackoverflow post about your question and we can follow up with a member of our engineering team and ask them to respond to you there.

Hope this helps to shed some light on the matter.

All the best,

Mathis
