  1. Beatport chart tracking?

    There are a few sites that already do it, but would be great resource to have Beatport chart tracking inside Soundsystem.

    • Add wavs to SoundSystem from HTTP link

      Add wavs to SoundSystem from HTTP link

      I keep all of my master wavs on my FTP, which is also then accessible via HTTP. Instead of having to download them to then re-upload them, it would be great if you could add wavs to SoundSystem from an HTTP link, or even link in to my FTP and transfer from there.

      • Trackable 'Proton' short URLs

        Would be great if when an EP was released on Beatport, SoundSystem knew this and generated it's own trackable short URL (like bit.ly) to EP. We could then use this link in our promo, and also view how many clicks, etc. I know it's doable now (manually, but would be great to see this in SoundSystem in the Performance area along with sales info.

          • Better graphic illustration of sales data

            I absolutely love proton’s real time data for sales, but being in numbers makes it harder to see long term sales trends in a graphic way.

            Both SoundCloud and bandcamp provide nice graphic ways of seeing sales over time, could something be implemented using the soundsystem data? It would make it easier to see sales spikes and other interesting things, and could possible punch out some interesting graphs at the end of the year of trends etc, which I think would be great promo tools.

            • How publish track exclusively for streaming?

              Based on the fact that streaming is oriented audience (not to DJs),
              I think it necessary to publish a "streaming edit" version of the track for beatport.com.
              With shortened the beginning and end of the track, because the listener is not interesting long Dj-intro and outro ...

              I want to publish a "streaming edit" only for beatport.com
              and do not want these tracks version were in our catalog in the store pro.beatport

              I understand that I can remove the tracks and mixes in beatport.com settings and upload their own "streaming version" but I'd like to save the prospect of monetization.

                We thought the same thing when the new Beatport was announced, Pasha!

                Proton spoke to Beatport about this, and the best outcome would be for Beatport to actually allow labels to provide “start” and “end” times for the tracks on the new Beatport, so that every track could effectively become a radio edit without needing to supply a special file.

                Our advice would be to wait for the new Beatport to develop a bit further, as we hope they implement such a feature in the road ahead.

              • profile photo won't upload (correct dimensions)

                Hello. I am trying to upload an artist photo, with the 500 x 500 JPEG image dimensions required, but it is still not successful. I keep getting the "ERROR: Incorrect dimensions. Please check the requirements" message. Thanks for your help.

                • change around tracklist on the spot

                  rearrange the artist name and track name with out having to delete or copy and paste.... mixcloud is a good example. you can switch artist name and track title by clicking an arrow and it switches for you automatically.

                  • Amazon MP3?

                    It would be nice to see also Amazon (MP3) added. Is there something planned or still in process?

                      We’re in touch with Amazon, but unfortunately they’re not able to partner with Proton at this time. They say they don’t have the technical resources to accept our catalog at this time.

                      We’ll continue to follow up with Amazon and hope they’re able to help in the future. In the meantime, Proton is exploring new partnerships with other companies that we’re pretty excited about!

                      Amazon’s share of the digital music market is very small, especially for electronic music, so until they focus more on the music this isn’t a major priority for us either.

                    • Re-ship a release that doesn't appear on the New Beatport

                      1 of my label's back catalogue releases currently does not appear on New Beatport -- Can Proton re-ship this release just to New Beatport, so that it doesn't create a duplicate on Beatport Pro?

                      Many thanks!

                        The new Beatport site uses a separate encoding/music library than Beatport Pro, so there is a chance a release may not have correctly been imported from Beatport Pro to the new Beatport.

                        The import process between Beatport Pro and the new Beatport is automatic & handled by Beatport, not distributors, so you’ll need to reach out to jacob@protonradio.com to investigate whenever this happens until we learn more.
