You may repeat this process if the source feed changed, had errors, or you would like to try a different selection of import options. The import tool uses unique information to identify if an episode was already imported.

Move SoundCloud Feed to PowerPress Feed

Once your PowerPress podcast feed is ready, you may redirect your SoundCloud podcast feed to your new PowerPress powered feed.

  1. Go to soundcloud.com and navigate to your Content Settings page.
  2. Enter the URL for your new PowerPress powered feed in the “Subscriber redirect” field.
  3. Click “Save Changes”.

You can now end all premium service with SoundCloud, but do not delete your account. We recommend keeping the version free of your SoundCloud account this way SoundCloud will maintain the feed redirect indefinitely.
