More on Track Spotting: Soundcloud.com

We all know there’s a sizeable community on YouTube dedicated to ASMR, or whatever you personally call it. But although YouTube pretty much has it all, there’s this one thing that it doesn’t have.

I was reading through my numerous new feeds the other day and came across an interesting website. It’s called Soundcloud.com, and the one thing that YouTube lacks, is here – and it relates to my previous post on track spotting.

What it is the ability to mark exactly where you noticed something interesting during a track. It could be an awesome guitar solo, or an ear piercing screech, or you managed to hear something in the background, like the drummer clearing his throat. In any case, this piqued my interest, and here I am posting about it now.

Instead of making a comment somewhere on the 10th page which has your typical “listen at 3:04”, or “check out 1’09” for some tingles”, which may never be read by anyone (who is going to go through 10 pages of comments anyway?), your comments appear at the bottom as usual, but there is also the ability to have it marked on the track itself, too. All you do is click on the blue bar at the bottom of the track, exactly where you experienced a change in energy that might have brought on a case of the chills, or ASMR, and type in your comment. And there appears a nice little icon, which if you hover your mouse cursor over, will have that comment appear.

Genius.

This is something that YouTube needs. I doubt that anyone reading this has heard of this site, and I doubt that a community as large as the one which exists on YouTube, would ever appear here – but if YouTube ever made one positive change, it should be this.

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
