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).
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.
We use around twenty criterias to identify the best tracks. For examples:
- "Like" / "Dislike"
- Add to favorites
- Add to playlists
- Comments and semantic analysis
- Average listening duration
- Favorite tracks of users with badges "Verified artist" and "Talent Hunter"
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.
Upload your tracks on Soonvibes and get feedback on them (ratings and
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 !
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
