I'm trying to get hard copies of 2000+ tracks from my spotify playlists, and searching for every track individually is proving extremely time-consuming. I'm currently trying to automate the search-and-add-to-cart workflow with UI automation like selenium, but it is error-prone and very fragile. It would be amazing if Crates.co could turn a CSV file into a populated shopping cart, by (A) searching for the track described in row X, (B) finding the best match for the given title/artist/duration, (C) add the track to my beatport shopping cart, and (D) provide a list of the tracks that couldn't be found or otherwise determined. Maybe with an options prefer Original mixes or Extended mixes, and checkboxes for requiring perfect matches for some fields (like Release/Album, duration, etc).
If this could directly connect to my spotify account, even better, but a file upload sounds like it would be easier to implement. And there are already ways to automatically create such a file corresponding to spotify playlists, using their web API.
Anyways, this would take all of the pain away from finding music to purchase, aside from the cost haha.
Thanks for your consideration!

Ok - crates was waaaay more clear when the tracks were sorted by release date. As of now after clicking on an artists I am getting the tracks in pretty much random order, any reason behind that? Thanks in advance for looking into this.7 votes
This is a bug with Beatport’s new API, unfortunately. They’re aware of the problem and hope to have a fix within the next few weeks, as priorities allow.
It would be great to automatically search for full-length preview for the next track instead of pressing each time "F".
Probably it can be a separate playlist on Youtube.7 votes
Now it is available only in "My Beatport" which is good but when there are hundreds of tracks inside your Hold Bin...well that would be great to filter them as well.6 votes
Definitely something that’d be good to add! Will keep it in mind and see if other users also vote on the idea. Thanks for submitting!
Tend to listen to new releases while doing other things, so being able to mute previsouly-listened-to tracks would be great!

Add a Spotify search function similar to the YouTube one. I pay for Spotify and would love to hear a high resolution copy before buying.5 votes
For example, uploading a CSV with the relevant metadata that then persists so you can only see tracks you haven't listened to. Ability to combine this with the other filters too.5 votes
Hi there - i've noticed an issue in the last few weeks which I don't think there was there before, where a search in Crates can't find a track, but searching in beatport does?
For example, 'Comet Chaser' by Sasha:
It would be great to be able to put together a playlist for a gig in a crate, in the order you may want to play the tracks in, and see if the tracks fit the way you want them to before checking out.
Also, it would be great to be able to sort by each column. Basically the rekordbox functions of sorting and drag/drop to reorder tracks.4 votes
Thanks for the feedback, Julia – we’ll definitely keep this in mind for future updates. :)
As someone who lives in the UK, some tracks are showing that aren't available to me, and vice versa. Not to mention everything is in dollars and not pound sterling. An option to choose which territory you're in would be great!4 votes
It doesn't happen frequently, but sometimes there are releases on Beatport that doesn't show in Crates at all.
Same label, Beatport has many more releases than Crates!4 votes
Unfortunately this is an issue with Beatport’s API, but we’re hoping they get it fixed within the next few months.
Beatport is aware of the issue and we’re in touch with them every few weeks for an update!

I'd like to know how Crates makes money, since there doesn't seem to be any subscription or license available. Is it free forever? If so, why? How is it funded? How is the data used?4 votes
I don't have a need for radio edits so would be good to be able to filter these out4 votes
Title says it all. Would be great to setup SSL/TLS and you can easily setup to auto-renew certs fairly easily. Better security on the web is always good.4 votes
https://crates.co/ works for us – are you having an issue accessing the site via https?
Today I recognized, that I cannot find any track via crates.co:
"This artist has not released any tracks meeting your criteria."
Also my crates do not show any saved tracks anymore:
"Nothing has been added to this crate yet."
Is this a temporary bug or is the service down for good?3 votes
Provide the ability to search specifically for Stems format tracks3 votes
Cant find or add tracks to the new crates when they are purchased.
We need to see the purchased history or library so we can trace artists,labels,songs what we loved. In that way crates will be more accurate.
if we have to wait for the api update from beatport, in the meantime,
we can maybe try automatically add songs to one of the 'my crates' folder (or sync with my crates folder and carts), in that way we will save the loved songs before it gets checked out and gone.3 votes
- Don't see your idea?
