Here is the start of the series of the new design to come!
I would like to start with the heart of the new website: the player. We have put a lot of effort into making listening to music a pleasure!
To deliver this new experience one of the many things we have done is lifted the 30 second previews to Full Length Uninterrupted Tracks! :) The player now allows you to continuously listen to music while browsing Polybonk and giving you the ability to compile a playlist.
For a long time I have wanted to implement a way to visually see the track you are listening to. Personally I love Soundcloud and part of what makes it great is the waveforms, which is now included, but we took it a step further and added some colours to help visualise the tracks activity.
For our membership service the player now includes a new HD feature, this option streams all previews in full high quality rather than the SD radio quality.
That about wraps it up for this first sneak preview of the new site, expect more to come.
