Hello the Soonvibers, the artists, music fans, partners, friends and Soonvibes’s supporters!

Unfortunately this is the end of the amazing Soonvibes’ adventure.

The company is in liquidation the 10/07/2020 by the commercial court of Creteil. So we can’t operate all the Soonvibes services anymore: Pro feedback & promo, Vibes and Shop…( FAQ).

We’ve overcome a lot of obstacles but today the Covid is stronger than us… A lot of business contracts have been canceled and we have no visibility for the future. That’s the reason why we can’t continue to develop Soonvibes.

But Soonvibes is also synonymous of a lot of very happy and super moments we’ve shared together. I’m thinking about many signatures with labels, a lot of festivals, events, listening committees, meetings during the ADE, IMS.. We were stirred by Soonvibes and the music! Thanks a lot for that! It is all we want to remember!

Of course, we stay by your side and we will support again and again artists and the emerging scene.

The period is very difficult for all artists, DJs but please fight for you and your art.

My thought are also for all the independent labels and small structures we’ve collaborated with.

You are essential to the music ecosystem.

Finally I would like also to thank personally all people who have worked for Soonvibes, from interns to our talented CTO Julien.

If you have any question, you can reach us here: contact@soonvibes.com

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DOES SOONVIBES WORK?

  • Who is this website for?

    Soonvibes.com is a service that caters for all artists and music lovers who want to promote their tracks or discover new music. Tracks are evaluated blind, which means we do not know the track and artist before we rate it. Also the tracks are displayed in random order to maintain objectivity. The best tracks make it into the music charts which allow professionals from the music industry to notice the best talents (publishers, record labels, DJs, radio stations, etc).

  • Is it free ?

    Yes completely.

  • What makes Soonvibes different from other sites?

    On Soonvibes, the number of listens is irrelevant, only the ratings and comments are taken into account.
    What's more, the tracks are only rated in a random way. So it's not possible to ask your friends or your fans to come and rate your music.
    Lastly, the tracks are rated "blind", meaning we do not know the artist's name before we rate the track.

  • How works the detection of the best tracks?

    We use around twenty criterias to identify the best tracks. For examples:
    - "Like" / "Dislike"
    - Add to favorites
    - Add to playlists
    - Comments and semantic analysis
    - Shares
    - Average listening duration
    - Favorite tracks of users with badges "Verified artist" and "Talent Hunter"
    - etc

    We also use other criterias but we cannot reveal how works precisely our system. The most important thing is to boost the feedbacks of your tracks to reach at less 50 listens (with likes / dislikes) to simplify the analysis and detection.

  • How can I start with Soonvibes if I am artist / music producer?

    Upload your tracks on Soonvibes and get feedback on them (ratings and comments)
    VERY IMPORTANT: you must boost your tracks with FEEDBACK or FEEDBACK+ options (during the upload process) to receive quick feedbacks. With this options, you receive more feedbacks and then we can discover you easily !

  • How are the tracks displayed in the blind rating system?

    In priority we always display tracks with FEEDBACK and FEEDBACK+ options. You must use points to activate these options.
    The display order of the tracks is random. We always promote the tracks that have received fewer ratings.

    We only display tracks in affinity with the ROOMs you selected in the blind rating.

  • What is a "playlist" and "favorites" ?

    The "playlist" brings together all the tracks you have added to your playlists, making them accessible in your personal space.
    The "favorites" is the fastest way to save a track for later on Soonvibes.

  • Is it possible to download tracks?

    Some tracks are free to download.
    It depends on each artist. When they put their tracks online, the artist decides whether their tracks will be free to download or not.
    When a track is not free to download, the artist is able to provide a paid download link to their music (e.g. iTunes, Beatport, etc.).
    It is important to understand that many artists display their tracks to collect feedback and improve and do not even want to sell it.

  • I came across a track being played illegally. How can I report it?

    Leave us a message at contact@soonvibes.com.
    We will take the necessary measures to penalise internet users who do not respect the Soonvibes rules.

  • Why I can't vote for the comments?

    You cannot vote for comments:
    - on the page of your track
    - if you rated less than 50 tracks
    - if your account was created less than 7 days ago

QUESTIONS RELATING TO MY ACCOUNT / ARTIST ACCOUNT

Are you an artist or DJ? What are the benefits to become a verified artist? All the answers are just below:

  • What does "Verified artist" badge mean?

    We verify manually some artists. They have a "verified" label on their artist profile.
    We only do that for the best artists. We identify them via our Talent Pool selection, winners of contests, our charts, etc...

    When you are verified:
    - your tracks are more visible (on home page, on dashboard for professionals, etc)
    - you have a badge on your profile

  • What is the "Anonymous" function for?

    This feature is completely free and allows any music producer to test out their music while maintaining anonymity.
    Internet users rate and listen to the music without knowing the identity of the author and track. This function is very useful if you want to experiment with new sounds without any apprehension... You can test out your tracks without worrying about being criticised
    You can disable the anonymous function at any time.

  • Where can I see statistics and ratings for my tracks?

    Simply log into MY TRACKS, or directly on your music page.

  • How can I edit/delete a track?

    Simply log into MY TRACKS and click on the track edit icon or the delete symbol.

  • Can Soonvibes store my tracks?

    Yes you can upload all your tracks for free. There is no limit for the moment.

  • What conditions are there for uploading music?

    - You must be the owner of the music rights
    - You must upload a complete track (so no audio loop, etc.)
    - You must comply with the Soonvibes rules

  • Is my track displayed constantly within the blind rating system?

    If you activate FEEDBACK or FEEDBACK+ promotion your track is displayed within the blind rating app until it receives 50 ratings. Then it still displayed but with very low priority... You can re-boost it using the "FEEDBACK" function.

  • In what resolution is my track displayed?

    We display the original Mp3 file you uploaded on the desktop website. We display the mp3 128 kbps version on the mobile app.
    It's VERY IMPORTANT to encode correctly your wav/aiff in mp3 version. (if not you will loose your original quality).
    For example, you can use Audacity, ffmpeg or CDex with Lame Mp3 encoder.

  • What can I do to get more ratings?

    You can use the different promotional options we offer: FEEDBACK and FEEDBACK+

  • I can't see one of my tracks present in the Soonvibes charts, why not?

    It must receive at least 30 ratings in order to appear in the charts.
    For instance, to be displayed in the "3 last months" charts you must receive at less 30 rates in the 3 last months. If you received only 28 rates in 3 months and 2 other rates more than 3 months ago, you won't be displayed in this charts (but you will be visible in the "12 last months" charts).
    In addition we don't display tracks uploaded less than 2 months ago.

  • How can I ask my friends to came and rate my tracks?

    At the moment this is not possible because they must rate the tracks randomly.
    This allows all users to give ratings objectively and avoid friends to give non objective feedbacks.
    The aim is therefore to receive objective scores without relying on friendship (since this distorts objectivity).
    Friends can however write a review and share music tracks.

  • ow often are the TOP charts updated?

    Every hour.

  • How to delete my account?

    Simply go to your personal menu: "My account", "personal informations" tab
    https://www.soonvibes.com/en/accounts/profile/personal/

  • How can i complete my profile to boost my visibility?

QUESTIONS RELATING TO THE VIBES (PREVIOUSLY POINTS)

Since October 7, 2020, Vibes no longer exist, as the Soonvibes company has been in judicial liquidation. There is now a new system based on points, with no market value. These points are only meant to regulate the Blind Rating, so that we can guarantee quick feedback to all our artists.

  • What are the points and how can I earn more?

    The points are used by artists to upload and promote their music. You can earn some by contributing to the Blind Rating or leaving comments. They also contribute in boosting your XP score in the Talent Hunter ranking.
