    Default theplaydeck.com - chrome experiment

    Hello

    I am a software developer and a hobbyist Dj (just started few month ago).

    As an experiment i have developed "Dj Player" in browser, i know there are some other better solutions but it was created just for fun.

    I will be more than happy to hear from you any kind of suggestions, ideas, improvements, critics... if you'll have any

    Hey this is really well done! I had expected this page to use a boatload of CPU power but my trusty old MB 2013 handled it without any problems, I did one small mix and everything worked really well! I like the keyboard shortcuts and the interface is actually quite intuitive, keep up the great work this was a joy to use!

    Edit:
    Found one bug on Mac OS 10.13.15 FF 60.0.2 the loading of tracks only works the initial first time and after that the button does not trigger a reaction.

    Just one question, why is it called a chrome experiment? It works just fine on Firefox?

    Works well! The loop row should be made a little bigger comparing to other transport buttons. Also, performing a double click on mixer EQ knobs should reset value to center position.

    idea was to submit it to https://experiments.withgoogle.com/chrome, i have't tested it fully yet in a different browsers.

    Definitely will add eq reset on double click in next update, thanks!

    Also what i really wanted to add is the ability to play music from cloud, via soundcloud or beatport or some other service, but can't get their API keys yet

    Yes it's related to waveform rendering engine, CPU load jumps when waveform is zoomed and it's scrolling.
    I have some ideas how to optimize it, but do not want to waste time on it yet.

    For now i just want to collect feedback if it's useful for anyone and if it is, in which direction should i continue development.

    I had some fun with it again today and just a couple of things:
    * The looping system slightly ruins the phase of the track which throws it of beat
    * Once a track is finished, on scrolling back the main waveform does not work (only the mini version)
    * Zooming the main waveform does not work for me unless it is the first track I load into the deck
    * Loading a new track does not work in Firefox (only empty decks can be loaded)

    Any plans to open source this?
