Assume you want to ask to identify an excerpt of music you've recorded or recreated with some software. Is there a way to add it to the question in a similar way as an image, so that one does not need to upload it somewhere else, risking dead links sooner or later?

    No, and it would be incredibly hard to moderate if it's added.

There's no built-in Stack Exchange solution for this; unlike images, from which almost all sites profit at some point, sound snippets are only useful for specific websites. (Oh, and the built-in solution for images uses imgur.com, an external hoster too.)

According to the answer to What site-specific post formatting settings are available?, three sites in the network (Code Golf, Music Practice & Theory, Video Production) have the option to embed sound/music which has been uploaded to SoundCloud. It's a feature which would be useful for this site as well; it has been requested but from some tests it looks only the YouTube embedding has been added. Perhaps it's time to ask for SoundCloud embedding as well?
