Long time ago I tried to gather a lot of music recordings based on my own preferences and mainly for personal use. As I did it without adequate programming skills but tried to use some tricks to keep organized. It was really time consuming and exhausting, but very explorative as I suppose everyone will agree(and what is the best part of the experience). Before the computer-cd age it must have been even a bigger struggle. Respect
I suppose my collection of cds wouldnt be useful for this database but I will doublecheck. As I personally prefer service like grooveshark which was closed down unfortunatelly there are too many not good enogh options today especially to keep all personal favorable music at one place as also having even troubles even finding the right “store” where to buy that music. Quite frustrating despite todays possibilities(with almost everything awailable but not organized enough). Maybe thats why I also want to help build the “complete database” so it can suite users, commercial subjects and music industry without unnecessary limitations. As
As the main goal is to gather most or try not miss any recordings is it possible to edit also songs not owned privately but that can be found on the internet? Whats the main “tag” to look for? Can they be edited or inserted until verified later?
I see many new artist “releasing” their records on soundcloud, found some great songs on music make jam(not the main application but their extra web page for songs that can be registrated in some way for commercial use), or from other sources. What kind of atributes do these tracks need or when are they eligable for editing? I expect they must be registered in some way of course.
