      Thanks for the suggestions, Ben!

      We'll be exploring how to bring genres best into Crates soon, and we'll talk about how multi-genre support too. For now we'll probably start with just individual genres, though.

      If you haven't already, vote for the "more tracks per page" feature request here: https://proton.uservoice.com/forums/284827-crates/suggestions/8342421-allow-users-the-option-to-show-more-than-50-tracks

        > Also, one thing I've found is that those services are location specific - they often don't show accurate charts for different territories.

        Beatport charts aren't territory specific: there is only a track and release chart for each genre and the homepage. This doesn't get broken down by country.

        >The Retza remix of Melt is good example. I have screen grabs that it made to No.5 in Deep House releases, yet only showed at No.6 on all the chart sites.

        This sounds more like an error with the chart sites to correctly cache Beatport on the day the track was at #5.

        >Inside Proton would make it super easy to prepare feature requests and the like, but totally understand it's not super high priority.

        I agree, and would love to keep track not only of charts but feature placement too. Definitely noted, and I'd be curious if other label managers vote on your feature request here. :)

        Until then, bptoptracker.com is a great alternative!

        AdminJason Wohlstadter (CEO, Proton Radio) commented  · 

        This is definitely something we're considering, but given the existence of 3 great services that do this already, I'm not sure how high of a priority this will be for us.

        www.bptoptracker.com

        What would you be looking to have in SoundSystem that you can't already get on the existing services?

          Thanks for bringing this up, Veteze! When a track is removed from a Crate we grey out the row so it can be easily restored, if it was a mistake. Mark and I will chat about if this is possible to do in the carts as well. :)

              Jay, have you tried using the hotkeys? You can quickly skip to the next track or previous track without needing to use a button. Click the ? at the top of Crates to see all the available hotkeys. Will that do the trick for you here? :)

              AdminJason Wohlstadter (CEO, Proton Radio) commented  · 

              Good point re: "Load Track" - that's not super clear language. Making a note of it, thanks Emilio!

                @Darin, are you referring to the waveform preview?

                FYI, check the hotkeys - there are ways to jump through the waveform without having to click. :) (View the hotkeys by clicking the "Help" icon in the right top corner.)

                  We're limited by Beatport's API unfortunately and this feature isn't something they offer at the moment. It's something we'd love to see too, but there isn't an easy way to pull multiple charts from a collection of artists yet. Stay tuned though, hopefully Beatport will upgrade some things to make this possible in the future.

                    Veteze -

                    While you cannot share your shopping cart with someone, you can share a Crate.

                    Any Crate can be configured to be private or public (new Crates are Public by default.)

                    This means you can add tracks to a Crate and then share that Crate with friends. Make sense?

                    Crates has also been upgraded so you can co-manage a Crate together with other curators. So instead of just sharing a Crate with friends, you can collectively add tracks to the same Crate together! Go to the settings tab of a Crate to get invite links to share with friends. Give it a try?

                    Let me know what you think!

                      Label managers cannot currently update Artist profiles on the New Beatport directly. Beatport has invited many Artists to the New Beatport and the plan is for all Artists to eventually have access to their own profiles so they can update them themselves.

                        Good idea, Che. We're actually waiting for Bit.ly to contact us re: another matter. Their API could probably handle this pretty well, but it would be a significant undertaking to build.

                        What I like about this is you could be given a URL to promote the release BEFORE it is out.... it could link to the label page at Beatport, for example, or a SoundCloud preview - and then managers could update it in SoundSystem without having to update all their promo materials.

                          Ah! Sorry for completely misunderstanding the request. I totally understand now. :) Definitely something to consider and will be curious what other managers think once more of them start using this forum. I'll think about if there's an easy way to do this - could be helpful for when managers are given a link from their mastering engineer.

                          Right now we're working on upgrades to have multiple uploads per page at one time (a new upload tool) + a better way to re-order the tracklist.

                          WAVs are already available for download on SoundSystem. Click the "+" on a track then click "WAV" in the bottom right corner. Give that a try?

                              Very helpful Matt, thank you. What do you guys think would be the best way to approach the actual functionality-- to provide a link that playsbacks the mixes in your queue, back to back?
