Sign into your account on Soundcloud. Click on Profile from the dropdown box. Click on Edit and you will now be able to edit your profile. Your Display Name and Profile URL are two separate but related parts that require attention when you create your profile. These two elements are what other SoundCloud users and the public will see. If you are a solo performer — use the name you perform under. If you are uploading episodes of a podcast — use the podcast name. The cleaner your display name is, the better your profile will look on SoundCloud and the more professional it will look when it is embedded on other sites and apps.
