New music hosting company

#1

i recall seeing a thread about soundcloud/bandcamp/etc but i can’t find it for the life of me.

particularly attractive to me is the lack of social networkiness.

A new concept to stream music

i’m interested, still haven’t ever gotten in to posting more than a scarce amount of tracks… is this affiliated with audio damage?

€20 per month - that’s pretty steep.

so over soundcloud though. at this point, i think i’ll just create a jekyll blog or something. is there any nice web audio player frameworks out there?

eg https://kolber.github.io/audiojs/

When I looked into this a while back, I found (and ended up using) audio.js, too. I like it pretty well. It does one thing that’s a little weird I haven’t looked into yet: when I point it at an icecast2 stream, the icecast2 server reports three listeners instead of one. That’s a minor point, and not the main use case, obviously.

I’m really intrigued by this, especially since I was just thinking about deleting my soundcloud page… but not sure I want to pay for it when I can just host files on my website hmmm

Another thing in this area I’m interested in is MediaGoblin, “a decentralized alternative to Flickr, YouTube, SoundCloud, etc.” My VPS is too old to run it, but I’m moving toward something more modern. This is another more-or-less DIY option, of course.

There’s also Saga, which is intriguing in a different way.

i like it
i’ll dub some my new work and post later

after using it for a bit, it’d be worth the price since i dont really have my own website
soundcloud & bandcamp will remain as an archive of past stuff

Yeah, +1 million for jekyll. At work, we’re shedding Drupal sites and replacing them with jekyll-generated sites.

looks weird. i would be happy happy if ello will support uploading audio at some point.

Just wrote them a question and found out that this company is Chris Randall from Audio Damage. And some others I’m sure…

I’m curious how many of us are still/actually using ello. I haven’t logged in in 6 months :confused:

I’m trying to figure out if we can put all our documentation stuff in a bunch of jekyll sites in work at the moment. such a great framework.

Is it just me that finds waveform displays distracting and unnecessary? It’s frustrating to me that we now expect a visualization of music before we even hear it. Not to detract from Octave, it’s just strange to see new standards form.

Something that has been on my todo list for a few days is to integrate Pen with Jekyll in order to make content editing more friendly for those unfamiliar with Markdown.
