    Default Do we accept too little from "Premium" EDM Download sites

    Hi,

    The forums have been pretty quiet today so I decided to ask a question that I've been thinking about lately. Are we accepting too little in our product from premium download sites (Beatport Juno etc). For what they charge and that they are catering to DJs (generally or people that just enjoy playing around with a digital dj program (like me)) and charging a pretty high price for the .mp3s purchased shouldn't they have the key and bpms tagged already before purchase. And in the case of Beatport the whole native instruments partnership thing makes me think this even more.

    Interesting thought.... I recently began subscribing to 8th Wonder for music videos, and was pleasantly surprised to notice that tracks I download from them actually showed up in my VDJ library with bpm and key info, when I normally would have to scan them first.

    pretty good idea for a business.
    throw in pre-beatgridded tracks in addition to bpm & key tags and i'd be sold.

    bpm and key would be enough for me.

    agreed, the tags should be filled out 100%

    Yeah gridding sucks. Such an effort spending 10-20 seconds of my busy day prepping a tune.

    Purchase. Download. Mixed In Key. Mp3Gain. Itunes (Add cover art and correct tags that lazy beatport doesn't do). Traktor. Grid. Skip the play part cos you are bored to tears and just start drinking.
