DSound: 2018 will bring much more to DSound than you can imagine...

Hello my Steemian friends!

I wish you all a great 2018 full of love, health and joy as we all deserve, and that together we continue changing the world for the better! :)

What is DSound?

DSound is a decentralized web application, developed in Javascript and React, that allows anyone to upload, listen and discover music and other sounds stored on top of the IPFS Network. It uses STEEM blockchain as a persistent database, and by posting the sounds the authors can earn rewards in STEEM cryptocurrency, when other users like their content, which can be exchanged easily to US Dollars, Euros or any other currency, similar to Steemit.com for blog posts.

Check DSound Intro post for more details

What I have been working on?

My major work the past 2 months has been around facilitating the upload process and making DSound more user friendly. A lot of small bugs have been corrected and a few improvements will also shine, but I will leave that for the 0.3 intro post...

I have been working on other projects along side, a big one music related that I will announce soon and another decentralized app based on STEEM blockchain that will also join soon the offer of great dapps that our favorite blockchain has to offer to all of us...

But this post is about DSound and another thing that has taken a lot of my brainwidth has been around ways to make monetization of DSound more effective, so that I can dedicate more time to it and maybe hire some help, but most of all to make it cheaper to it's users, since DSound actually is taking a 25% cut out of the sound rewards, similar to many other STEEM apps, but it never felt the right way since the beginning to me...

And it is clearly not enough to make it sustainable, not even close! As you can see here DSound made about 150-250 STEEM per month, which is not even enough to cover my hours of work, let alone the marketing efforts needed to make it the full scale dapp for sharing music that we all want it to become, so that authors get more exposure and rewards!

This led to...

@prc STEEM Witness

The first part of this sustainability project started by strengthen my involvement with STEEM blockchain and becoming a STEEM Witness with state of the art equipment and redundancy prepared for longterm scaling as our Blockchain may require in the future.

Read the full witness proposal here

This not only allows me to contribute more and become a moving part of our ecosystem, but also allows me to get some rewards to inject into DSound and my other new projects based on STEEM blockchain.

The first part is done and I'm happy with my servers performance and still 0 block misses! :)

But for the rewards part I need to have more votes for my @prc Witness so that it can start to make more work and get more rewards to revert to these projects budgets... Every vote is hugely important!

Therefore I ask every single one of you that trust me and approve what I do for the Steem ecosystem, on my projects related to music, like DSound, and the more to come, please help me to make it happen! :)

You can give me your approval vote as a STEEM Witness here (and it's free!) :
https://steemit.com/~witnesses

prc-witness-vote.png

And another important part of this project is...

Delegation to @dsound

I will soon put online a curation and voting bot that will be analyzing constantly the published sounds and the response from the community and based on that will upvote the sounds that are getting more interest, as well as others that follow certain incentive metrics that I cannot disclose to make it more fair.

This will only be a helper to my manual curation that I always like to do as a music lover personally. I listen to DSound all the time! From podcasts to DJ sets or cool original tracks, I've found great stuff there and is getting better by the hour! ;)

So I ask all DSound tribe, please delegate the SP you can to @dsound, big stake or small doesn't matter, it will make a difference when all delegations come together on @dsound account and it begins to upvote your content when you post that amazing sound of yours!

I'll also put together a table of honor for the delegators to @dsound on my updates.

And all this gets to...

Ok, so what will be the benefits for DSound users?

The major benefits for DSound users will be:

  1. Have DSound improved in a more scheduled manner;
  2. Marketing on various music industry fields to bring more people onboard;
  3. Platform growth will mean more exposure of your sounds;
  4. More users on DSound mean more Steem users too;
  5. Progressively reduce DSound beneficiary reward downto 10%, or even 0% with DSound SMT's;
  6. Higher rewards on sounds caused by the more users and @dsound delegation votes;
  7. Introduction of contests and similar engagement tools based on growth of platform rewards;
  8. Potential media coverage when DSound gets noticed by mainstream as the first platform to effectively reward indie musicians for their work.

Final words

Ready to press those vote and delegate buttons? Come on guys, together let's make DSound that platform that frees us all and allows us to do what we love: music, sound design, recording, remixing, mashups, podcasts, or whatever is your thing... :)

My special thanks to these great uploaders on DSound. Please check them out!

If you still didn't give it a try, please do... You'll be surprised! :)

  5. @simgirl
  6. @jaybird
  7. @artbyclark
  8. @outoftune
  9. @soundlegion
  10. @immawake

TL;DR

I need your help to make DSound and my other projects sustainable and make marketing efforts to bring people from the music industry to Steem.

Please vote for my @prc Witness here. Thank you!

And please delegate any STEEM POWER you can to @dsound as it will be used as curation and voting for the best sounds on DSound platform.


Thanks a lot to all fellow Steemians, developers and music addicts like me for your support and encouragement on my projects!

Peace! :)

DSound is great. I am always on there cause of @soundlegion they promote DSound BIG!

·

Thanks a lot! Yes @soundlegion are a legend! Love their sound and their help promoting has been great! :)

I'm sure you don't have time for tech questions, but I've been trying to upload to dsound for a while and I can't get it done. It always fails and suggests I install a local IPFS. I have done that and had IPFS running, dsound still says it can't detect it. Anyone have an idea?

·

Installing IPFS is tricky. It is discouraged for now. You should be able to upload without it anyway... But just wait a bit for the next release and upload will be like a breeze! ;)

·
·

Alright, thanks for the reply! I'll give it a shot when it comes out.

·
·

Can't wait! I have some LARGE (>250mb) file sized philosophy cassettes digitalizations (Allen Watts, Terrance McKenna, Carl Faber and Ram Dass) that would love a home on Dsound, tried with/without an IPFS and had no luck, but also tried running it on a mac and not terribly familiar with the process.

Thank you for the alternative to having to post on Dtube with a picture placeholder for 1hr at a time of listening!

·

no idea abt it brother

I can't seem tot log in with my steemit credetials into dsound. The private key does not seem to be correct when i log in . Am i the only ons with issue?

·

Please this post to learn about what key to use... It has to be the Posting Private Key as the picture shows:
https://steemit.com/music/@prc/introducing-dsound-a-decentralized-sound-platform-using-steem-and-ipfs
Hope this solves your problem, if not please get to the dsound channel at steemit.chat and ask for help there, me or other fellow users will help you out for sure! :)

·
·

Thanks! I've found it.

I'll be looking into using DSound this year for my music and podcasts. I think it's a great project and I've voted for you as a witness.

·

Thanks a lot @steevc! Looking forward to your feedback... :)

·
·

hi Jerry Banfield i`m newbie vote for you in the witnees, sorry to bother you! I wanted to tell you that I'm still working and I like it a lot. It would be honor for me to evaluate my post and my interpretation of the keyboard. I would be very interested to know if it is to your liking, thank you! https://steemit.com/openmic/@jetperalta/steemit-open-mic-week-66-got-a-match-chick-corea-cover-and-improvisation-by-jetperalta

·

I agree to your post, in addition this would be a great platform for us steemians to engage and well known in the music industry keep it up👍

·
·

Thanks! :)

Very very cool! I might have to try moving some of my old tunes off soundcloud over to this platform.

·

Please do! :) Thanks!

I love DSound and it's good to see that you only plan to make it BETTER this year. Let's see 2018 being the year that the "DSound Musician" becomes the new "SoundCloud Rapper" hahah. Somebody toss me a pair of clout goggles, we're going INNNNN

·

ahahah :D Together we'll make it the best music sharing platform on the planet! Thanks a lot! :)

I am slowly uploading my tracks to Dsound, the fact that it's linked with Steemit is amazing. I am not sure if it's just me being a noob but is there a way to post an EP or Album in a playlist/collection? I want to release my EP here as one post, not a few separate ones.

·

That is on my shortlist, but will not be in the next update for sure... Sorry! I gave priority to soften the uploading process, as the last was to make the playing faster and able to stream properly. It has to go one step at a time. Still a one man show... ;) But we'll get there soon! Thanks!

·
·

It's all good @prc, I just love there are alternatives that reward artists at least a little bit, soundcloud never gave me anything but other random songs playing after mine and lewd offers from spam accounts >.>

I just discovered this and love it! Wow I'm so excited to upload. If I upload would it also post on my page. How does it work. Found dtube made a post.

·

Yes, it makes. It's the way to get rewards on Steem blockchain... ;) You can get more info here: https://steemit.com/music/@prc/introducing-dsound-a-decentralized-sound-platform-using-steem-and-ipfs
Thanks a lot! :)

Im dedicating my 2018 to dsound.audio --> Team Work makes the dream work

·

Cool! :) Let's make it happen! ;)

is there a possibility of those modules being built into steemit so we can drag and drop these recordings into here?

·

Unfortunately no. Steemit is one dapp over Steem blockchain, maintained by Steemit Inc, and DSound is a completely different dapp over the same Steem blockchain. What may happen in the future is Steemit accepting integration of embeddable players on the posts... I've talked with them about it but it won't happen now due to security restrictions on their side due to openness of IPFS. :)

Very Nice Following @tazbaz and upvoted

·

Thanks! :)

I'm trying to get my foot on this platform but haven't yet tunned my laptop. The IPFS is required, but i'm anxious to be a part of this great new wave!!!

·

You don't need to install IPFS locally on your laptop. It is optional, and discouraged for now as it is tricky to configure, but you can upload without it anyway... Please give it a try and let me know your thoughts! ;)

·
·

@prc
I'm currently working with a very old (obsolete) machine, performance wise is using linux software.
I've tryed to upload one small work and it returns an error... I'll get some more into it on some tutorial... Tks!

·
·
·

yes, uploading now requires a significant amount of memory for the processing... it will change radically soon as I publish the next version, stay tuned! :)

For sure I'll do anything to help. Thank you so much for creating this awesome platform!

·

Thanks a lot! :)

Voted, keep up the great work! I'll be looking into starting using DSound within 2018... and DTube... and Steemit for that matter. This platform has the potential to seriously shake up the centralized contenders. Exciting times! :D

·

Many thanks @michaelhebo! Exciting times indeed! :)

@prc Salute bro, what u doin is great!! looking so forward to see all ur work echoes more and beyond, this year is going to be huge for Dsound. Thank u for all the efforts and work u putting out there to build another great platform for all of us musicians that we can host our music, expand out supporters and grow.

"Music is what feelings sound like" sooo true love ur motto! its the answer i usually give also when im asked about what kind of music i produce haha

looking so forward to the new updates and upcoming announcements!

Kudos on the mention and shout out, may 2018 be full of more growth and success!

Bless up

·

Such an honor @djlethalskillz! Thanks a lot for your words brother! Let's make it happen together... :)

Dsound very best

·

Thanks! :)

Muito obrigado!

Very well written proposal! I am impressed by your efforts thus far. It’s a quality platform and I think the way you laid out your needs and strategies is bound to attract some whales, dolphins, and minnows to push dsound to the next level.

Also, I’ve been in Lisboa area for about two weeks now. Anything steem or crypto/voluntarism related going on lately?

Tchau!

·

Thanks a lot for your kind words! :) The Steem community in Lisbon is still very small. and I travel a lot so not much into the local momentum... ;) Maybe you can write some post on the "pt" tag and more locally active people can get to you? Enjoying Lisbon? I'll have a busy weekend, but maybe I can find some time for a beer... Join me on steemit.chat? ;)

·
·

Aaah yes. Sounds cool. I for some reason have two emails registered on steemit.chat but no email ever arrived to give me confirmation codes? Also tried resetting password but no go... :(

·
·

presente! :)

fantastic news guys! its been wonderful loving adding the DSound to our promotions

·

Thanks a lot @soundlegion! You are a legend! :)

Excellent post good content for a change!

·

Thanks! :)

There is a charm that will soften the music of the wild animals, soften the rocks and tilt the century-old plane trees.
I think this share was a share proving the above sentence. @prc

·

Thanks a lot for the kind words! :)

·
·

You're welcome. Thank you for your kind return. :)

Dsound is great👍

It's very exciting watching these developments as well as the recent improvements to dtube, dmania etc.

·

Thanks a lot! :)

Nice project.

·

Looking forward to using it! (In the meantime I need to get a piano again...) Definitely some marketing is needed. This post is the first I heard about this project. Perhaps find a user with sufficiently many followers or vests to write a summary that shows up higher on the trending page?

·

Yeah, marketing will put DSound where it deserves! :) Looking forward to your content...

will surely look into dsound.

Keep up the great work

Thank you! And please do... :)

This is great! A whole new experience for Steemians @prc.

·

Glad you liked it! :)

Wow nice post!
I'll be looking forward to using the Dsound app for my music.
Thanks for sharing

·

Thanks! Please do... :)

I will certainly use DSound for my music and podcasts, especially with the new updates for this year.

·

Cool! Looking forward to your content! :)

DDope!

·

ahahah :D DThanks! ;)

·
·

It's beautiful... knowing that music is appreciated in the steemit community, i m so short of words, but i can only say THANK YOU. YOU ARE THE BEST!!! i sing too u might wanna check it out if you want, good work dear

Fucking awesome! Feels great to be on the verge!

·

You bet! :) Thanks a lot! ;)

Omg bro İt Amazing
İts very beatiful bro

·

Thanks a lot! :)

Seems to be a good alternative to SoundCloud, will check it out, thanks :)

·

And it is! :) SoundCloud has more visibility, for now... But here you make some bucks without having to be signed to a major label! And DSound is remix and DJ set friendly... No take downs possible, only flagging by the community if publishing material of others without any fair use of it... ;)

Gonna checkout DSound, I have some music to post ;) you got my vote, mate @prc

·

Cool! :) Thanks a lot mate! ;)

I just submitted my first song! So stoked and grateful you created this! I love the blockchain!

https://dsound.audio/#/@themixedhippie/themixedhippie-mesmerized

·

Cool! Will check it out... Thanks! :)

I'm excited for this platform! I haven't had a chance to use it yet because I only recently discovered it this week but plan on releasing my future music on it :D

·

Cool! Give it a try, you'll love it I'm sure! Thanks a lot! :)

i used dsound but Unfortunately i get low retention and low rewards :( i will continue to use it and see what will happen @prc

·

DSound is just beginning... It still has only a small set of musicians that were already on Steem. But with these new things that will come soon, like marketing outside of Steem and curation with @dsound by delegation, I think that it will become really interesting! Thanks a lot for your persistence! :)

You got my vote. How can I help DSound support Podcast Channels? Python and Go dev with some web app experience. I would like for Podcasters to have a Standard UI, and easy to manage rss feed to link into iTunes and the whatnot... hopefully get some breakout channels who are d.sound first in publication and web presence. Youtuber casey neistat is starting his podcast again... he would be a great resource for feedback and a possible shout out on a video episode.

·

RSS feed will be available soon for podcasters. Thanks for the interesting tips, please join me at steemit.chat and I would love to have more feedback on what more would be important for podcasting, since you seem to know a lot about it... Thanks a lot! :)

·
·

I 100% agree with offering a monetization solution for podcasters. There really is a wide open market here because there isn't a decent solution out there. If you have RSS Feed support and an easy way to upload content (and that could be quite large audio files - ie. 1-2 hours in length), and some form of embedded player that could allow for audio plays to start quickly, while downloading the rest in the background - like splitting into segments, you would literally own the podcasting market. I know podcasters would drop Libsyn, Soundcloud or whoever is hosting their content in a heartbeat if there was a way to monetize. You have that solution. Just some small tweaks here, and you would own the market.

·
·

As an example of the length issue, I uploaded a podcast I am a host on:
https://dsound.audio/#/@k0d3g3ar/2017-11-29geekrant311fromthepeanutgallery
If you try and play it, it can take minutes before it starts. This is a typical episode than runs for just under 2 hours in length. If there was a way to upload it, but the downloading was done in 5 minute segments, so that one could start while the next is loading, etc. you would have this covered.

·
·
·

That is so much valuable information man! :) Maybe I'll accept your offer to test the RSS when I'll have it ready... ;)
Related to the time it takes to start playing, that happens only on the first few plays of the sound file, when it is synchronizing on the IPFS network, and it is impossible to tweak, but for instance, the show you placed above took me 6 seconds to start playing right now on my PC, because since last version DSound supports streaming already! So I think that problem is solved, the only missing part is RSS, and I get back to you on that subject! Thanks a lot! :)

·
·

And also if you need to chat with someone who not only hosts a podcast, but also runs a large podcast hosting site (since 2006), DM me up on Twitter at @mylesw and I can help you out here with whatever you need. I have already written all the code to make RSS feeds iTunes compliant, etc. so we can fast track this.

Sounds like a wonderful invention. I look forward to using DSound. A huge step in the Steemit Community. Where em rappers, singers and DJ's at. DSound is here. You have my Vote

·

Thanks a lot! :)

This looks like a good project, that everything comes out excellent, a vote for this!

·

Thanks a lot! :)

@prc great news!!! I have begun to upload tracks on Dsound. This year, the plan is to do even more, and bring more of my music community friends along for the ride. Much success to you in 2018!!!

·

Cool! Looking forward to your feedback... Thanks a lot! :)

i'm trying to feeling this. No, i realize <3

Site seems to be down

·

Not anymore... Thanks! :)
It seems that planed changes on third-party services always go the way we didn't expect them to go... ahahah :D

Music hits the soul! Definitely is an expression of feelings!!

·

And: "music is what feelings sound like!" :)

DSound is currently my favorite of the decentralized platforms. Decentralized music distribution is going to revitalize the musical landscape by making it possible for artists to profit from streaming their material and as a (starving) guitar slinger this is a God-send. Can't thank the creators enough for their efforts.

·

I am a musician myself and I know perfectly what you're saying... You and all our fellow indie musicians around the globe were my inspiration to create DSound! Thanks a lot for your feedback as it feels soooo damn good to know that my effort helped someone for real!!! I just hope that many more will join and DSound can give them some means to proceed with their dreams! :)

DSound is definitely bringing a lot of value to the platform... Look forward to watching it grow and expand in 2018 and beyond... Trying to get all my rapper friends to post their content on the platform... Just voted for you as a witness...

·

Thanks a lot @debraycodes! Great to know that man. I'm sure that with more music people onboard the platform will get much more leverage... :)

·
·

It's just a matter of time... DSound > SoundCloud & DTube > YouTube... Decentralize It!!

Great work! I'm not one to produce my own music -- but I've always been a big fan of Soundcloud and how it made it so easy to discover new artists. Keep up the good work -- I'm excited to see the growth that DSound has in store.

·

Never too late to try! You never know @mstafford... ;) Thanks a lot! :)

Very nice - thanks for developing! Maybe you could add a counter for total plays of every track some day. 🙂✌🏼

·

Thanks a lot! :) The statistics are on the wish list, but building them is tricky due to decentralized way of DSound and immutability of the blockchain. I already have some ideas. It will take some time, but it will come... ;)

More people should know about this really interesting concept. Things like DSound can really be the future of music monetarization. I will for sure check out the tracks there from time to time.

·

Marketing outside of Steem community will come when beta stage will be achieved, pointed out to 1Q 2018... It will grow fast I think! Thanks! :)

adding you as a witness bro.

·

Thanks a lot brother! :)

Really excited about this, wanna start uploading my sounds.

·

Please do! :) Thanks! :)

Thanks to have work on it <3 I was waiting for so long to finally be able to upload easiely my Dj sets on @dsound <3
This thing is awsome ! I upvote and give a @tip!

·

Thanks a lot! Appreciated :)

Sweet! I've been looking forward to the moment when you decided to kick things into 2nd gear. Can't wait for 3rd!

And I gotcha, you're on my witness list. keep doing great things my man!

·

Thanks a lot my friend! 2018 will be great... Lots of news to come! ;)

·
·

Sweet, keep us (SteemBirds) in the loop!

Awesome! I'm planning to make a podcast and this is a great timing, I will definitely transfer here from soundcloud. Thanks for your good work.

·

Thanks a lot! :) DSound will have rss feeds for podcasting soon as well...

·
·

Wow! That's great! I'm looking forward to that. I have #followed you, though late. Hahaha. xD

Yesssssssssss

·

Thanks for all your work on DSound man - it's great! Really looking forward to seeing where it goes this year. You got my witness vote.

·

Thanks a lot! :)

This is really awesomeland! Glad to be where all the innovation is can't wait to contribute and upload stuff of our own!

·

Thanks a lot! Please do... :)

This is so awesome! I always love finding underground music that people don't know about. I'm still new to STEEMIT so I had no idea about DSound! Thank you!

·

Thanks a lot! :)

Thanks @prc! I am extremely happy that I have stumbled upon this article! I would love to check out this new site!

Soon I'd love to start posting my work on there and use it as a primary platform for my rap! :)

·

Thanks a lot man! Please do and let me know your thoughts! :)

love this idea very much!

·

Glad you do! I love it to! Thanks a lot :)

I've been working on a new form of feed that helps people discover things that are more likely for them to be interested in based on people that vote similar to them. For example if you and I both vote on similar posts it will be more likely to show me things that you vote on.

Anyway, I've always thought that this would be best implemented with songs/audio because it is a lot harder to quickly determine if you like a song without listening to it and obviously you can't listen to every song you come across to try to find good ones.

Here is my post if you want to check it out and maybe get some ideas. https://steemit.com/curation/@littlejoeward/a-new-feed-using-upvotes-from-the-people-you-follow-improving-content-discovery

I have been testing it on my steemit feed and I have loved the results so far. I think I might try it exclusively on dsound next to find some cool music but I'm not a programmer (yet) so the progress is slow...

·

Cool stuff! Will check it out for sure... Thanks a lot for sharing and lets connect on steemit.chat? :)

·
·

That would be awesome. I am just trying to find someone who is a better coder than me that can actually put it into action. Currently I hacked together a solution with google sheets and google apps script! haha. Unfortunately with steemd being discontinued it messed up how I was doing it so I am stuck...

Thank you for your precious contribute to this community.
I've voted you for Witness, keep it going!

·

Thanks so much! :)

Voted for your witness.

·

Thanks a lot my friend! ;)

Very cool. I didn't know about dsound. Thank you for sharing this info. I'll definitely be checking it out and posting my music there. I'll be sure to look for you on there as well. Thanks again. Cheers :)

·

Thanks a lot! Please do... :)

·
·

I created an account on dsound, but I am unable to upload anything. I tried using wav and mp3 and I tried with a really short/small song. But I get an IPFS error everytime. Do you know how to fix this. Either way I'll keep trying and researching. I hope to post there soon.

·
·
·

Upload will get much better soon... But until then there are some errors from time to time... Don't mind the offline on the settings, that means that you don't have a local IPFS node running, which is perfectly fine. Get to me at steemit.chat channel #dsound if you still can't upload, ok? Thanks! :)

·
·
·
·

I understand. I definitely don't have the localized node. But I may consider installing one in the future. I'm probably piggy-backing off of one that's far away. I'll keep trying and see what happens. And I'll be sure to look you up on the chat if need be. Thank you.

I am a big supporter of Dsound since day 1 BUT all of my content from over three months ago doesn't even show a waveform, let alone load... what gives?

·

That's how IPFS works, if your content is not requested often, then the IPFS nodes will "forget" about it when time passes... To solve that, you can just go to the upload page and upload the same files, but don't post the song again. That way the files will be refreshed on the IPFS and the tracks will play again. Be absolutely sure that the file is exactly the same, because the IPFS hash will be different if the file content is different. This update feature will be simplified soon, but to have big portfolios a local IPFS server is the best option. Will be possible soon with a DSound node. Stay tuned! Thanks a lot for your support! :)

·
·

I don't think I will using Dsound anymore if that is the case. You have been nearly absent on updates as far as I can tell, the server rejects my uploads most of the time, and now I have to reupload the exact same file every so often... I never saw that mentioned before.
You say that dsound hasn't been bringing in enough steem, but you have only made 2 posts concerning dsound in the past three months. And now you say that you have been developing other dapps and want to be a witness, instead of developing the project that you started.

Meanwhile many other companies are closing in on tokenizing the music industry, and hey will most likely overtake steem in that regard. I really thought that dsound could have been a contender, but I guess I was wrong. Hope you get it together.

·
·
·

I'm sorry for having bills to pay...

one of the reasons i love steemit

·

and I am sure steemit loves you too! thanks! :)

I plan on releasing my music through d sound and d tube almost exclusively going forward! I have had problems uploading to d sound last time I tried, but will try again once I release new material.

·

Upload will be a lot better on the next update, please hang on tight and stay tuned for it! Good to know that, please share your thought going further... :)

I have been trying to reach out to you for a while. where is the best medium to chat you up.

·

For now it's dsound channel at steemit.chat :)

is very cool

·

Thank you! :)

Love your project. I voted for you as a witness. Steem needs people like you.
Upvoted, resteemed.

·

Thank you for your kind words! :)

Thank you for your enthusiasm! Will give you as much support as I can
Very appreciate your highlights though ;)

·

Thanks a lot Sascha! Love your sounds and it's soooo good to have you on DSound! :)

·
·

Cheers, brother!

I like music..Music is my heart ..I will waite for your next post..

·

Cool! Thanks a lot! :)

what are the copyright policies of dsound?

·

Community driven curation of content, so DSound doesn't have any control over the content published, as it is decentralized and uncensored. So, the penalties for uploading content that is not fair use are to have a fat flag and loose your reputation, besides getting nothing of payouts... Remixes or DJ sets are ok, but direct uploads of pop tracks are most probably flagged. But as I said, it is community driven...

One of my favorite song and my first @DSound upload..

let me know if you like it too...

how do you edit 1 of your tracks?

·

You have to open the track by clicking on the title or cover art, and then you'll see the button to edit it...

This is such a great idea , wish I found it sooner 🤘🏽

·

Thanks a lot! :) I think it's still early, it's just starting... ;)

Hey @prc I love that you created a soundcloud decentralized!! Perfect for podcasts and musicians, that's really awesome :) I was curious why the dsound account isn't more active in upvoting content posted through the platform? I know dtube does a great job of curating content and it encourages more use, I was just curious if there is a reason the main account isn't more active in voting?

Much love for creating such an awesome app/platform!

·

Hi Brian! Thanks a lot! :) The dsound account will get busy soon... I just received recently a few major delegations of steem power to proceed with curation, so I am setting up bots and manual curation to make it soon a reality. I will post about it when ready! Thanks for joining too, I already listened to your show... I am also sick, so perfect sync... ahahah :D Looking forward to more shows from you. Thank you so much!

Ah I see! Thanks for taking the time to respond and man thank you for listening to the podcast, I really appreciate that! I'm definitely planning on using dsound more often with some exclusive podcasts so I can send people over to listen. Ahhhh I feel worse today than the last 4 days, hopefully we are both back to it soon! Thanks again brother!

DSound is a very interesting thing for me and very useful also for all because the monetization system is very good and I am sure this will be very developed in the future
But does DSound have a Discord channel? @dsound @prc

·

·

Tx for the post..!! I am already uploading my first track on Dsound. :)

·

Cool! Welcome! :)

Dude I´m totally in love with Dsound, I just voted @prc witness... I´m uploading a lot of weird modular (digital) experiments. It´s a great tool to share audio in high quality. If you need spanish translator count me in :)

·

And it is just in alpha stage... ;) Good to have you in the tribe, thanks a lot! :)

@prc best wishes from @LetItPlay team to DSound!
I'm CEO of LetItPlay - audio layer of the Internet. We are working on number of products similar to yours. Our products is still centralized but we are going to implement advanced attention economy on blockchain soon. So we are choosing between two blockchain cores: SMT.Steem and EOS. It would be a good decision for our projects to collaborate on this task. If you are intrested in collaboration - lets talk about common blockchain.

·

Great! :) Let's connect on LinkedIn and go from there, ok? :)
I tried to connect with you but I couldn't...

@prc I would like the opportunity to help you promote the DSound platform. I developed a large following on sites like Soundcloud, and was at one time ranked #1 on reverbnation. I would greatly appreciate a few minuets of your time to discuss with you some ideas that could rapidly grow the Dsound network, and also point out some basic features which could be included to improve the user experience. One quick thing would be to include a meta property="og:image" tag to the default photo so they could be seen and promoted on social networks. My public business email is DannyQuestOffical@gmail.com Look forward to speaking with you.

·

Thanks a lot for reaching out! :)
Just sent you an email... Looking forward to your feedback!

I foresee DSound definitely gonna surpass Youtube very soon, no doubt about it.

·

Thanks for you nice words! :)

i would love to upload some tracks to dsound, but i always get the network error issue...how to solve that problem?

·

Please check my last post and join our Discord server... The you can chat about your problem and get help. Thanks! :)
