Anything about MUSIC but doesn't fit into the forums above.

Hi ppl,

So I somehow got to this site. It looks to have its design inspired from Soundcloud, but instead of having a time limit for user content it has (for the free accounts) a number of plays as limit (8000 for free) before you can't do anymore uploads. However they say that whatever's been already uploaded is not subject to any limitation.

Has anyone tried this? Any thoughts or concerns? Please share your experience! :phones:

I'm not sure but it seems now that it is being run by only two people, so it's at the very beginning of its life.

Could this turn into a real alternative platform for Soundcloud? They say that paying customers can choose their bitrate and sound quality for the player.

That looks interesting and a possible alternative to SoundCloud limited audio quality. Thanks for the info.

I saw this 3 or 4 months ago. It seems to have progressed a bit since then. There are quite a few names that I recognise on there. I'll check it out further.

It seems to work. I just signed up for a free account. Paid accounts cost either 1 or 2 Euros per month, depending upon what you want.

Holy Amadeus, it's from Austria! :o

The only thing that I don't like are these listening & download limits. Because I cannot control how many times a song will be listened to or downloaded, and if I'm above the limit, they'll ask for money...

I just got an email from them. They are currently reworking the UI. It goes live on Friday 13th.

I see they have implemented a configurable feed. Something we've been asking Soundcloud for, but which didn't happen.

There doesn't appear to be any info on the default mp3 quality for the free account. Paying for this kind of thing interests me not at all, I would rather _have_ a website.
