Database Enhancements

Nothing you’ll notice but today we upgraded our database infrastructure to utilise separate read and write databases. We also migrated to Google Cloud for better availability and robustness.

Added pagination

Some SongBox users were loading 20 to 30 audio files into a single page load and this was killing our servers. We now paginate your SongBoxes which means you can have as many audio files as you like, but we only display 4 at a time.

New Image Upload Experience

We’ve now switched over 100% of our asset storage (images and audio files) to our new workflow. This means that the experience is a whole lot nicer and you now get a lovely image cropper to make sure your profile pictures are just perfect.

If you already had a profile picture uploaded we’re afraid you’ll need to re-upload… sorry :-)

New Feature: Time tracking

As of today (24th November 2018) you will be able to see a new reporting dashboard that shows data on how long people are listening to your tracks before leaving.

New player widget

In response to customer feedback, we’ve built a new player widget that visualises the waveform of your audio. This is definitely a pretty cool addition and we really hope you like it!

New upload process

We’ve invested in a new user journey for uploading your tracks. We’re confident the new process is much more robust and user friendly. Please let us know what you think.
