Topic: Pulselocker - Page: 1
We need a unified approach to music streaming across the whole music industry.
Maybe they are starting to realize that DJ's need the same access to songs as your average person with a mobile phone.

I wonder if it's a winner?
I might be able to use it tonight!

When I tried it, the search was about as useful as an iron on a shower curtain.

It might cost too much for too little at the moment, but it must be the future...it will keep on improving.
I think this is the important one, it's legal, and it will have broad support from the music industry.
We should see an end to the legal battles.

Call me old fashioned whatever but I still think having the physical media files is the way to go for a working DJ.
A lot of people are now using subscription for books, films, TV shows and music, and of course they are all heavily DRM encoded. Remember all the shit that flew when Grooveshark went down and loads of VDJ subscribers were left on the poo poo. Same thing can happen with any of these services (paid for or not) and I'm personally not willing to take the chance.
It's nice being able to stream the odd track from Spotify or Deezer if needed and I have web access but my customers pay me to have a full collection of music for the gig and that's what I will have. On my hard drive.

These streaming services should only supplement a DJ library so that the Spotify / mobile phone customers demands can be meet.
It's almost intolerable that a customer who spends little should have better access to music than a DJ who spends a great deal.

Hm it's good for Ed Sheeran.
I searched for "Ed Sheeran" and never saw Galway Girl..but then I searched "Ed Sheeran Galway Girl" and that worked?

Last year had the lowest turnover of number ones ever. I think this year might be worse.

I'll do a Drake search.

Searching for just the artist misses a lot of songs.
Hm..it's worth checking for the Beatles again but this time searching for the song as well.

Seems to be a lot of rubbish.
I've just got the original version length and key.
I should find a good one but it's messy.
Trouble..I got "Request attempted to many times"
What are they like..they gave me 50 versions which I don't doubt included a good one, but won't give me the time to sort things out. Stupid.

I don't understand why sites (not just Pulselocker) have X versions of the same track clogging up their database. Just have one original version listed and be done with it.
Inviato Mon 03 Apr 17 @ 5:32 pm
Some time later... I got one song.
It still might be handy because the song can be cached, but who would pay $20 a month to mess about?
I think they will clean up their data base in due course.
