SoundCloud still isn’t conforming our story that they recently raised a $50 million round led by Kleiner Perkins – but today at the DLD conference in Munich they have announced a pretty significant milestone – hitting 10 million users.

It competes with the like of Audioboo to some extent, but that is on a much lower 300,000 users and focuses on speech.
