Eric Kim–A Major Upgrade of SoundCloud

We’re all going crazy today at the SoundCloud office clicking around our new release–it’s mad slick! So slick in fact that we decided to name it Kim after Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, who by the way used SoundCloud heavily for the release of their new album… There are a few major upgrades in this release that we’d love to tell you about.

Where’s my DropBox?

There has been some confusion previously on what the difference was between dropping a track in someone’s “DropBox” and sharing the track to someone privately. So you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve simplified this by effectively making “dropping” and “sharing” the same thing. Using the DropBox to “drop” a track to somebody will now simply share it to that person.

no-dropboxThis change has also allowed us to simplify the way you receive tracks too. The most radical difference is that there is actually no DropBox tab anymore. But don’t worry, it’s better now because you’ll get everything in your dashboard instead. Plus you’ll also get two clean lists of incoming tracks: one from people you are following, and one from others (people you are not following). This makes it easier to stay up to date with what tracks have been shared to you-regardless of whether they came through your DropBox or not!

Smarter DropBox

dropboxWe’ve added one of our most requested features: you can now drop already uploaded tracks into anybody’s DropBox. And you can even drop public tracks. Dropping a public track will notify the recipient in their dashboard and over email just like for private sharing (naturally these notifications can be turned off as well).

Better navigation

We’ve redesigned the site header with smart dropdown menus that make it easy to find all key areas of the site in one click.

new-header

Groups

Groups are an entirely new feature on SoundCloud. They can be started by anybody and are a great way to bring people together around a specific theme or project. Want to start a remix contest? Make a group for it and let people send their remixes to that group. You’ll get a DropBox badge for the group that you can put on any page. And you’ll get a great player widget that will show all tracks that have been posted to the group. Groups can also be moderated to give you full control over its contents if required. More info and ideas on groups will follow soon in a blog post dedicated to this great new feature.

So that’s it for perhaps the biggest upgrade ever since the birth of the Cloud. Now go play!

    Nice! I love the drop shadow drop down menus, and the nav bar buttons curved corners render well in Chrome. Oh never mind its an optical illusion, because the sky blue color does not have extreme contrast against the background blue to white gradient. But yeah you cant even see the harsh pixels unless you look close. Anyways, the nav is amazing! Excellent job ! Just gets better all the time :) Groups is great to for collab organization. More options make it better. I wonder if there could ever be too many options. Later!

    what a splendid idea!
    now all a spammer has to do is start “following” everyone and spam the hell out of them with just one simple click!!! (and don't tell me you didn't know the place is crawling with these guys.)
    if i wanted to get updates on someone, i'd simply start following them, wouldn't i?…

    you should have called it “Spammer's Delight”, that's what i think.

    I'm a PRO user and still not satisfied with Soundcloud. Whenever i share a track with somebody they don't get a notification.

    I own a mastering service and i'm an executive producer working with international artists and labels, and Soundcloud made me look like an ass on many occasions.

    If i share a track, people should be notified, or else its completely useless to me.
    A complete waste of time and money this service has been to me.

    I'm back to using regular upload services no more Soundcloud for my business, other then maybe the widgets that actually work on blogs etc.

    After this update, the interface is completely unusable for me, lacking in speed. And my 2.8ghz P4c cpu is now constantly using 50% of the cpu (1core + HT) doing nothing. I know my computer isn't fast, but normally fast enough for Internet surfing, and before this new update, also smooth and fast navigating around in the Dashboard.

    Simply said, its that bad that I can't use SC anymore, because of the GUI slugginess. Writing this topic entry is all fine, no 50% cpu usage. But as soon as I go back to the Dashboard, its bad :(

    Cheers caeious,

    Just logged into SC again, and seeing the same problem today. I thought, that it might could be Firefox 3.011 that did something wrong. But again, I'm seeing a 50% cpu usage in my task manager, doing nothing in the Dashboard.

    My Internet connection shouldn't be a problem… 6mbit down / 384kbit up.

    Personally I think, that SC has made the new update on a Core 2 duo like or faster computer, and forgot all about the people than are using older computers, or am I wrong?!
    Then the new update probably is running fine. But I can't figure out, why the sudden big raise in cpu usage is there, when the previous update was working smoothly on my old setup. I guess they've made a lot differently behind the scene. But really not usable for me unfortunately :(

    No, I haven't tried soundcloud on another computer yet, as I only have this P4 comp in house for Internet use. I also have a Intel quad Q6600 computer I use for music, but its not connected to the Internet.

    I just wrote down some percentage values from the different SC views. How much cpu usage SC takes in the XP task manager doing nothing:

    Dashboard: 50%
    You: 30-40%
    Tracks: 50%
    People: 20-30%
    Groups: 10%

    I don't know how the numbers looked before the update. But as said, I think that SC has made things work smoothly on newer computer systems. And if you are a little outdated as I'm with an old P4C computer, thinks can be very bad. But I don't like the fact, that SC was working smoothly on my setup before the new update. So I guess it much be one pretty heavy update in terms of whats made differently behind the scene, or… something isn't done right or is running right.

    I'm having no problems surfing around on the Internet on other Internet pages, fast and smooth. But the minute I enter the SC pages, things goes from good to bad in speed.

    My computer setup:

    - P4C (2.8Ghz 1core + HT)
    - 2GB DDR mem
    - Gfx: Geforce FX5200
    - Windows XP SP2
    - Kaspersky Internet security 2009
    - Firefox v3.0.11
    - Internet connection: 6mbit/384kbit

    I think the easiest solution for both is to include a switch for “light cpu's” showing the needed items only and “heavy cpu's” enabling all gimmicks whistles and bells…

    A customizable menu wouldn't be bad either but, let's not haunt the programmers :D

    Are any of you using an older computer for browsing, for example a P4C computer like mine (6-8 years old). Great for Internet normal html/flash Internet surfing, like Myspace, Facebook, youtube… I'm asking, as none of you is complaining about speed issues with the new update (please read by previous entries to this blog). I think I'm alone on these speed problems, which is very bad and irritating to work with :-)

    When I send a public track that is already uploaded to a single user, does this give them the ability to download it? I just sent a label promo to a DJ using tracks I already had up and am wondering if he'll be able to download it.

    Agh… these changes are a real pain in the ass as a label. The dropbox was brilliant because it was a simple way for artists to get me their music, and a very easy for me to access it straight away. Now I can't tell the difference between a normal private track (which I simply ignore) and a demo for the label.

    Please bring back the dropbox. This site is useless for labels like mine without it.

    Thanks,

    Agh… these changes are a real pain in the ass as a label.

    Hi,
    have you tried the option to show only tracks “shared to a handful or less” in the tracks lists? It's really useful and will show you tracks that have been “dropped” (shared only to you) to you.

    No, unfortunately we don't yet have separate permissions for “downloadability” of tracks. But good news is that this is coming soon!

    Yes. But here's a suggestion: Under “Tracks” in the navigation, you've got “From people you follow” and “From others”. Why not simply add “Shared only to you”. Such a filter would effectively act as a Dropbox.

    not a fan of this change…as a label who recieves literally dozens every day of “privately” shared tracks sent to 2000 people at the click of a button, it takes away from those sending their music specifically to *us* and makes our dashboard overwhelmingly cluttered

    not sure if i'll continue to use the service

    Hate what you've done to soundcloud…. now my dashboard is filled up with heaps of stuff I'm not following and don't want… it's really killed the experience for me.

    At least with the dropbox it was seperate from the people you were following, now its just as bad as myspace etc… fix it or I think you'll lose the following on the site.

    Hi jesse,
    sorry to hear you're not happy with the new release. good news is we hear you and are working to make things better. on that note: have you tried the “shared to a handful people or less” option in the incoming tracks view? should filter out the junk to show the relevant stuff…

    i'm not sure if its relevant to this release, but for about a week now MY DROP BOX HASN'T WORKED!? the main reason for me getting soundcloud, for producers to send tracks, the dropbox is the best way for djs to recieve private tracks 24/7, now for nothing? i know its changed abit, but all my tracks in there suddenly dissapeared, and people have messaged me sayin theyve uploaded tracks to me privately and even 5 days later, nothing….

    upon reading eric's reply to jesse, i now have all the tracks previously in myprivate dropbox, but still the tracks people have uploaded in the last week are not there.
    tbh i did not expect them to be as i have not recieved notifications for them, but why? people have even uploaded tracks multiple times, and resorted to another private file hosting site after days of trying…

    Agreed. This was THE biggest reason I stopped using SoundCloud. Now, you may very well see sound cloud widgets at http://www.GarageSpin.com/Music in the near future…

    Nice work, guys.
