However, you should notice the low success rate of transferring playlists from Spotify to SoundCloud, which is the most obvious drawback of these online tools. In most cases, you can’t sync 100% Spotify playlists to SoundCloud due to these 2 factors.
1. The music library of Spotify and SoundCloud is not exactly the same.
This factor makes some Spotify tracks exclusive, which are not available in SoundCloud. The online converting tools can only copy and paste the commonly existing tracks in both Spotify and SoundCloud.
2. The instability of the online converting process is much higher.
If you have a large Spotify music library, the syncing process by online converters could be very unstable. The network situation is highly demanded during the syncing process.
To get a stable and high-speed conversion from Spotify to SoundCloud, we still recommend you to try the first method, which is 100% workable for all types of Spotify tracks and fits for all types of Spotify users.
