    Before you use this please note:
    -You will only be able to rip a 128kbps stream
    -You will need to use a browser that will allow you to view the source code of the page (ex. firefox (recommended))

    Step 1:
    Go to soundcloud and go the page of the track you want to rip
    example:
    http://soundcloud.com/laurainvader/sets/mikill-pane-the-morris-dancer/s-ipaDp

    Step 2:
    View the source code of the page


    Step 3:
    Search within the source code for this line (without quotes):
    "window.SC.bufferTracks.push"

    now look for the url of the media, it will look something like this:


    Step 4:
    Go to this site:
    http://www.jmarshall.com/easy/html/testbed.html

    And enter your url in the hyperlink tags like so:
    Code:
    <a href="http://media.soundcloud.com/stream/Oj4uwU0gW179?secret_token=s-ipaDp\">click here</a>
    Then click display

    You will then see a black page that just shows "click here"

    Right click on that link and choose "Save Link As..." or "Save Target As..." and obviously save the file and that's it!
    This method is great for when artists do a pre-release on soundcloud before you can actually download their album/EP :D
    If I helped you please Thank and +rep me :D
