SteemStream v3 featuring Sound - Adding a mesmerizing track to the Pulse of Steem

in steemit •  3 years ago 

After having laser removed my Steemit tattoo (made a typo), it was time to add a most wanted feature to the project: Audio!

I've spent a couple of days searching for soundbites which align with the 'stream' theme and also with the specific types of transactions written in the blockchain.

The end result is a chimey background track as the base and sprinkled on top are:

  • random 'upvote' raindrops
  • 'comment' pen clicks
  • 'transfer' and 'limit order' money flapping
  • 'new post' gongs
  • 'new user' sizzle
  • 'downvote' rocks
  • 'pow' bubbling gas

All in all a weird ever changing compilation of sounds of the Steemit Network.

Visit for v3 and hit 'Audio On' in the top-left
Turn on your volume!

This is steem not doge LOL

Beautiful job @roelandp now we can listen to steemit 24/7 instead of just thinking about it!

hello steemstream I like you a real lot, thank you for your interface. . .

Could I ask do you ever summarize that stream data collected per minute into a useable analysis of hourly time of day per weekday summary format ???

/ hugz ; )

So this is what, steem sounds like ?
I imagined it had a bassdrum pumping, like a steam engine :)

this is more with the 'stream' analogy => water... I like your idea too... Maybe I should add a 'Theme'-picker?

Theme picker is a great idea , or maybe have an advanced mode where people can pop in urls for custom sound schemes. I'd love to have a cash register sound go when someone upvotes my stuff :)

@roelandp what's the current status of the #SteemStream project? I am new to #Steem and recently created my first post... trying to learn more about how to use and develop on the #Steemit platform with regards to content and is there live Steem Streem being developed? If you are able to review my other questions also here

That was quite nice for a while quite relaxing but soon got on my nerves I would end up turning it off

You can turn on & off some types of 'transactions' via the graph interface at the bottom.. For example click the upvotes to turn them off!

Ah ok that Would help

Ok, these news it's what makes me sleep good at night, improvements like this I love them.

It sounds like a weird japanese game lol

This is fun! I think I'll keep it running in the background to see how long it takes before I lose my mind ;)

Wov this sounds like an ambiente music! :)
Okay, after 5 minutes I needed to turn it off, but it is still a good idea.


That is all.

Music can change the world, steemit is no exception.

I love what you've done, can you add a special sound when whales upvote,post ,etc? Thanks

fantastic - well done

Somehow it doesn't work in my browser? I tested it with the latest firefox nightly and qupzilla (based on chromium engine). I just get the two blue buttons and the header. :/

Thats cool ! Audio on a must. Thanks Roelandp

How can one pause the stream... can you add the feature, this is a wonderful web application, If only one could pause and join back realtime

with a tattoo that did not work !))
