    Beatport Pro was created for DJs who need the music files.

    Two services, basically. I don't think they plan on you streaming during a gig.
    Right, it's targeting two different audiences. A streaming beat port would be great for music discovery - then some kind of discount to buy the actual track to play offline in a set.

    Both my Hold Bin and Shopping Cart survived. I'd be livid if not, and BP would be out the $170 I just pulled the trigger on.

    beatport pro is designed for mobile devices but a lot of the cosmetic changes don't work on the desktop version.

    i like the new soundcloud visually. i just don't like the features they took away. like seeing the activity people you follow have been up to. they're likes, comments etc. their mobile app looks alot better but they took away so many features a lot of people have stopped using it. myself included.

    They already have WAV for most tracks, but its more expensive than other sites.

    I remember when BP was a full flash site, that was painful.
    but I remember the version before that also, when I had to get off my ass, walk to a shop and carry the music physically back to my house. Painful in another way.

    Good point. What we gain in the ability to listen to any track in the world from anywhere - you lose that experience of going to the record store and hanging out with guys, getting recommendations etc. Though of course the internet does that too now!

    Which is pretty annoying, to be honest.

    I really like the Bandcamp model. One price, any format you want.

    More and more of the underground techno labels I like are moving there, thankfully.

    Yeah I know. I usually get the apple lossless then convert it just so I don't have to mess around editing tags and album art, and stick an MP3 of it in the same directory so Rekordbox knows what to do with it...
