I got an opinion about sending songs to soundblend. Have you thought about making them 30 second samples till someone buy the song.

You know one thing I would like - create a user type of "Band" where paying members who form bands here can feature their material and treat projects, posts, etc the same as a individual user can. This user type should be free, and available to only paying members.Maybe only let a paying member create the band entity, and then they can add the members, with each member being a "manager" of the band account. Now you could say "Oh, but groups do that". No, not really. It's impossible to go to a group page and see a list of songs immediately. It's impossible to get a list of songs that you can click and play to listen to from a single view.Groups as currently constituted are inadequate. This is why in the past I've resorted to creating a free account with the user being the band - so that this stuff can be featured AS an band. Point is - many people after being here form band type relationships or outright bands and I think there should be a way to feature those entities like individual memebers - being able to share to the community, make posts, etc.

I like the concept! I will definitely implement something along these lines, but probably a little different than might be expected. Here's my thinking: In Kompoz 2.0, Collaborations are pretty much the main component/entity in the platform. In 3.0, I am demoting them slightly, hence the new name "Project". Projects are just a space for songs-in-the-making. A project has all the online tools needed to finish a song. Beyond projects, Kompoz 3.0 will have additional entities (post-production entities) such as Songs, Albums, Collections, and Playlists. So, you'll use Projects to work together, then publish the results as Songs. You will be able to group songs into Albums, Collections, and Playlists. This is where I think the concept of a Band can exist. You might have noticed the "Radio" link in the toolbar of the last video. Kompoz Radio will be the area to feature all of this. Thoughts? Ideas?

I like it. I do think people might want the ability to communicate / interact as the band - maybe not. e.g. post a track to share in the community from the "band", etc.

Thinking out loud... Assuming there is a "band" concept, and that the band has its own space/page on Kompoz, what would you think about having a Patreon-like model, whereby fans can support the band members through subscriptions, tips, buying songs, etc.?

I'm a fan of the idea in a big way. We do that already external of kompoz for Icarus Machine - I'd love to tie that all together here at the source. :) Provide a way to link to a website, facebook, etc. - make it a platform for marketing and also for sales direct through soundblend of *Albums* as well as singles, and allow grouping of artist materials similar to say itunes, letc.

Cool. I'll include this in the roadmap.

Love the band concept. As you know me and Tim like to call ourselves ecopunk and create stuff under that heading as a duo. Be great if we could have a profile as the two of us so that all projects are in one place rather than some on my profile and some on Tim's. All the music we created tends to get lost amongst things. A band page could even create it's own artwork for the page, facebook links, videos etc. Think it would be a great move to do this.

The only thing I would really want from Kompoz 3.0 is for it not to 'time out' .... to explain : Let's say I open a dialogue box for a comment or Private Message. If you leave it open for a while (not sure - maybe 5, 10 minutes?) and then start, or keep on typing and you end up with a pretty long message. Usually several paragraphs. .... then try to send it - a message all appear saying something like 'unable to send' or words to that effect. The message will obviously not send. You cannot 'undo' or 'step' back to when the message was in the dialogue field, it is lost and you've wasted your time.....AGAIN !! Major pain in the ass !!!! So. Just solve that please. Kompoz is already a great platform. Good enough. Need more tigers obviously as they see to be a far rare commodity - but software improvements won't fix that. Not sure what will actually . . . . . . I have copied this text - just in case !! ... but I'm not always that switched on . . . : (

Hey Raf, you may have talked about this and I missed it but how long will Kompoz 1.0 exist b/f 3.0 takes over completely? Just thinking about my learning curve and working out details you still want to do.

Just a suggestion: SUPPORT FOR AAC audio files. Smaller file sizes, better quality - win win. And, import marker/region/etc. data from WAV so markers are added automatically (such as, verse 1, chorus, etc.) and viewable on the waveform. Love the platform, love that there's initiative for improvement. Stay healthy and safe ??

Another suggestion - one of the successful features of another online community I know has an aptly-named "CRAP" section in their forums: Conspiracies Religion And Politics a little nook away from the main pages, where all the folks who don't get enough of a politics fix from Facebook or mainstream news op-ed article comments sections can go argue while leaving the rest of us out of it. I'm not talking about CRAP-oriented music though. That should be in bounds, and hopefully a feature of, a music community.

Any chance of getting our membership levels fixed? Have paid for Pro but still can't upload wav files. HAs affected a few members for about a month now. :-(

No, I had it disputed with BofA and got a credit back. Not sure if I'll try again to sign up for plus.
