Constantune – A Loopable SoundCloud Playlist Builder

I've always been a little annoyed that you can't loop a track1 or series of tracks on SoundCloud. For a service that lives and breathes music, you would think it would be an obvious feature to have.

Alas, after countless manual "previous track" clicks, I decided to build Constantune – a simple tool for building loopable playlists from SoundCloud tracks. Simply paste in a track, playlist, or artist url from SoundCloud, hit enter, and your playlist is ready to go. You can loop single tracks, or the entire playlist, or even turn looping off altogether, if you want. It comes baked in with simple playback controls, keyboard shortcuts, and drag-and-drop track reordering.

For those interested, Constantune was built with Angular 1.3, CoffeeScript, Sass + Bourbon, LocalStorage, and Gulp.

Go ahead and try it, and let me know what you think!

Feel free to send your suggestions, or deep affection in the comments below, or on Twitter, @syropian.

1. A week after release, SoundCloud released a repeat button. It only does single track repeating though. Still...coincidence? I doubt it.
