Soundbounce
« on: March 28, 2016, 07:30:08 PM »

Soundbounce is this site: http://soundbounce.org/

It's pretty nifty. It's kinda like turntable.fm from back in the day, but integrates with Spotify. I hear it works better if you have Pro, but I don't, so I use the chrome extension, which is fine at home, but for crap at work. Still, I can listen even if I can't chat or add songs while working, and that makes work much, much better.  8)

Buzzstein made a WOXY room. This link might direct to it, but you'll need to download soundbounce first or the chrome extension and get it working. http://app.soundbounce.org/app.html#room/QkbNmwFI-/689f38   :o

You get to make a rolling playlist for your friends. And it has a chatroom attached.

So, like the Spotify feature we use here, but with a chatroom.

I don't know what feature is used here... Playlists? Can multiple people add to playlists? Because it's kinda like that, but has more of a turntable.fm vibe to it.

Anyway, right now I can't seem to get anyone other than Buzz to participate, so I just go to this other room that the guy who told me about Soundbounce is always in. Cool people. Design nerds so they share a lot of fun pics and talk about Pokemon a lot.

Yeah. We have a monthly playlist on Spotify that we all contribute to. It's kind of like a best of the month list from WOXY.

Someone posts the link in the Spotify thread and that's about it. We talk here, which I guess is the same as the chatroom.

I checked out Soundbounce last night, it's buggy as hell at least it was for me. The only difference I could see between Soundbounce and the Spotify playlist is the ability to interact with others in the same 'room', like Turntable other than that I don't think it's like Turntable at all.

Oh yeah, it is buggy for sure. So was turntable sometimes.

I like the immediacy of the playlist intertwined with the chat window. For example, today, one of the guys found a weird gif of an eyeball, so they all shared a bunch of pics and links about eyes, all the while adding songs to the playlist with "eyes" in the title. If you're into that kind of spontaneous playlist change, you'd like this sort of thing. If not, maybe not?

Agree with Kwyj...thanks for sharing!

I probably won't use it in the near term, but maybe down the road. My stupid job keeps me from listening to music much...

Where are your priorities, man? stupid job? or crappy streaming service?

Huh. Was hoping y'all would get it, but it's cool. I'll just keeping hanging with the design dudes and listen to their tunes. #getoffmylawn  :disco:
