All of the Soundcloud paid subscription plans has its own separate upload limit. Free users can record and upload up to three hours of audio, a Pro user can record and upload audio of up to six hours and a Pro Unlimited user has a recording limit of six hours and 45 minutes and no upload limit.

If you are having any trouble in recording audio or simply can’t find the option to record on Soundcloud, check out the step-by-step guide below.

Note that, at the time of writing, you can not record audio directly on Soundcloud’s website.
