ofcourse I'm tightarse! But to be honest Beatport brought it on themselves.

They kept sending me vouchers every time I had 30-40 tracks or so in my cart so now I expect it.
Why pay full price when you don't have to.

I have respect for the guys that still buy vinyl and if I was financially set up for it I would be doing it too, but as it happens I'm not for that reason I buy MP3's or WAV's.

There's enough music websites out there for me to be picky so I'm going to play the tightarse consumer until something entices me to buy.

I might have one spare, but waiting to see if a mate is interested first before making it available.

I don't like how the player doesn't have a playlist history where you can browse through the songs you have listened to the sample. The new Play/pause and next song, previous song just doesn't cut it for me

so a good feature has now been fucked up.
I wonder if the new beatport will stop us using proxies to get around territory restrictions.

I just hope that you can still browse and move around the site while the samples still play uninterrupted.

I actually like the way the site is now. It only needed a few minor adjustments

Just got a code and now browsing new site. I fucking hate it.

Restricted tracks are not displayed! Which means you can't even listen to them. I tried click on a restricted track I had purchased in my previous downloads and it wouldn't go to it. :-(
I don't like the fact that the whole page content scrolls when scrolling through the tracks.
Feels like iTunes store.

I've found the player track history but some of the key commands do not work at all for me. Cool feature- just add that to the old site and leave it alone please! lol

All they needed to do to the old site was extend the actual track listings to the full length of the browser or make it customisable.

Also there's a major problem when sorting tracks by name. For some tracks it picks up the 2nd or 3rd word and sorts it based on that word instead of the first word. It's more than just the words "A" or "The". This is actually a problem in the old beatport.

Do you use a Mac? Beatler man, it'll take a couple of days to get your head around how the interface differs from Beatport but it's way better

edit: Also the best thing about the new beatport is no god awful Adobe Flash Player required!

Disagree! The old site is extremely outdated and running on a really old platform. I think the new design is a step in the right direction.
Remember tho that it's still in the Beta stage, so im sure we'll be seeing a heap more changes come through.

I liked how its compact but just needed the list/track view to be extended

people who use an iphone would hate the old website :p

I like the new beta beatport, fresh look, simpler, less cluttered and the BPM is useful as guide for the tune's you're planning on purchasing.

Thumbs up here.

Not really. We've had a native iOS app for a while for now, and they made us a html5 mobile site before that.

From what I've read on the feedback site they plan to make the mobile site to be consistent with the new beta too (which would make sense )

Does Beatler let you use "My Beatport" i've had a look and can't find it anywhere. If it doesn't have this it's no good to me.

Also i didn't mind the old Flash Beatport, the only thing i didn't like about it was that you couldn't just right click on a new artist and open their page in a new window. Can't stand the new Beatport, doesn't seem very fluid or user friendly at all to me.

It does, it's called Of Interest in Beatler. It lets you import all labels and artists in My Beatport as well, but it's only a one way sync (two way sync is planned for a future release apparently)

Is there any way to sync your "Hold Bin" in Beatler?

Would be nice. I'm only playing with Beatler for the first time now, so if I work it out, I'll post in here.

I'm not sure off the top of my head, but you can setup as many crates as you want and use them as your hold bins.

If not, hit up the developer on his support forum. He's very responsive and dedicated to his product!

im not a fan of it, I like the simple top left navigation buttons on the current site
dont get me wrong I think html is the future, but the flash one seems to be working much more fluidly and snappier.

I think that they will be keeping the Flash site around for a while - perhaps indefinitely.

I'm sure there will be a lot of customers that share your opinion, and Beatport will not want to risk the loss of business for those who might be drawn towards Trackitdown (for example), as they're not enjoying Beatport's new layout.

of course I come from a bias perspective but I still think dancemusichub.com is easier to use for finding music. I reckon there are a few areas that need improvement on DMH and I'd be keen to hear your feedback. As Australia's only EDM store, we're keen to be the site that Aus DJ's go to first and of course satisfy the needs of Aus DJ's. PM me for a promo code if you want to try the site for free. It'll be $10 worth of credit.

Did anyone's player just break at all? all of a sudden whenever I click on a sample in the new Beatport it opens up in an embedded QuickTime browser window. Old Flash site works fine.

edit: Working fine again!

One of the main things that annoys me, is with the player you guys use. You have to select the red arrow and drag, in order to track through each track. You can't just click on the time line. If that makes sense.
Annoys me so much! When im trawling through heaps of tracks, it really gets to me.
And your play, add and buy buttons. Get rid of the text and replace with icons, or different colors or something.

Flash.beatport.com from memory

I've gone back to using the HTML site instead of Beatler for now.

The only thing I don't like is I still prefer the old colour scheme. After browsing for two or three hours it tends to be a bit harsh on the eyes.

Fucking Beatport. I love the new site, and I love browsing tracks, but I am sick to death of having incomplete and damaged tracks come through. There's usually two every lot of purchasing I do.

Do any other portals have a My Beatport section that allows me to populate/browse by my favorite labels at all? If so, I'm happy to ditch Beatport and spend a Saturday afternoon populating my labels list (problem is though, Beatport exclusives)

Didn't want to start a new thread but has anyone else noticed when they use the beatport downloader that they just end up with the track name and no other info more often than not? I've checked the download settings etc and seems fine but when it appears in my folder only the track name?

Damn, I'm using Vista, but not sure that matters. Think it might just be me, maybe there is an update for the downloader. Makes it slightly annoying as you have to enter all info manually.
