Something nice for the weekend
F-R-E-S-H, fresh, fresh. fresh, yo that’s fresh! We just finished another update of the site with some nifty new features! Many thanks to all the cloud testers for helping us out, keep sending us your excellent feedback. This is how happy we get when you send us all the good feedback!
Here’s a rundown of some additions to the SC platform:
- New basic “search” feature for users and tracks: located at the bottom of the page, in the “crowds” and “music” segments, this function will help you find your favorite artists and tracks.
- New audio formats supported: now you can upload up to 24bit/192 Khz uncompressed, as well as flac, ogg/vorbis and more. And the uploader is much smoother too!
- New “favorite” notification: you’ll get info in your dashboard when somebody favorites your track.
- New player feature: now you can jump directly to a certain point in the track by simply typing in a time value (underneath the play button, in the field that shows the current length of the track). Kind of like a sequencer.
We also had a major bug-squashing session and now we have more (binary) blood on our hands than Shackleton! But the result is that the site currently runs much smoother (better pagination, correct “discogs” input field, etc…), so there’s more to enjoy for all the clouders…
The SoundCloud team hopes that you’ll enjoy your weekend and the new site!
