Apex VJ - A Way To "See" Your Soundcloud Tracks (New BB Code Embed)

ApexVJ

I'm not sure if anyone has heard of this in-browser app before but I thought it was pretty cool and that it might be a cool way for artists to share their tracks in the Listening Booth with a visualizer attached. If you look above the advanced text editing box when starting a new post you'll see the embed button (next to Bandcamp), and if you feel like typing the [apex] tag will also work (just add a close bracket at the end). Simply paste the link from your song on the Apex site in between the brackets, and voilà! Your track now has a visualizer!

Example below:



What do you guys think?

Looks cool. I kind of find the related suggestions list getting in the way that pops up. Also, I hit play and nothing happens. I'm sure it's an error on my end but it should be playing The Volcanist but doesn't. The screen changes and numbers 1 - 8 appear in the top left. I tried hitting those too and...no sound.

Also I thought it would be a spectragraph type thing, but looking at their website it looks like it's not really...right?

Would have prefered a spectral analysis thing but I know you're not the designer.

This is awesome. It seems to work with Soundcloud, but it's impossible to figure out how to embed it.

RFJ - what browser are you in? I'm in Chrome.

Jazzy - I linked my soundcloud account to the site here: http://www.apexvj.com/kaksi/music

Then it just individual page links for each track. Copy URL and put between [apex] brackets.

Hmm... I wonder what the TV mode thing is doing there...'

Edit: Oh I see now, you made it that way so it's a playlist instead of individual tracks. That's pretty cool!


Oh forgot mention you can also download an app for your phone so you can remote control the visualizations. I'm trying it out now, pretty awesome.

Just my thoughts;


for getting it to work you just connect the apex site to your soundcloud and thats it, click your song from a song list on there and copy/paste the address into the apex tags


Also, I can view the visualizations on Mozilla easily, but in order to view the high quality version I need to be on chrome, which is a bit annoying since Im a firefox user, but Im sure the majority will have no problems.


pretty cool find fid! kudos

So this is what Ap(h)ex's been workin' on for so long

But for real, sick idea. It's amazing and enhances the musical experience. I've got to try this with some of my tracks.

Moreover, I had to write this reply in a seperate topic as this one is very laggy, I don't think that's because I have a low internet connection though, as I have a 6mb one. I wonder whether it is my poor old laptop's fault or does anyone else experience this as well?

Also it plays Jazzy's track without clicking play, while Fid's doesn't. Just a spot on for the future that there may be some more lags/interference.

Once again great job IDMf.


Oh and btw. listened to both "RANT (wip)" and "The Volcanist" and I got to say you guys have some immense skills.

also not meaning to be a butt, but the playlist is a bit annoying

even when replying to the thread it auto plays,

I think i've heard 30 seconds or so of half of jazzyspoons discography lmao

xD


EDIT: (playful poke here jazzy hope your not offended or anything :3)

Sorry, guys, not sure how to turn that off. It wasn't intentional to have it auto play. (no offense taken, btw)

Brings back childhood flashbacks of "This site is best viewed with Netscape Navigator"

This is awesome.



But this thread is damn un-openable. candlesayshi and Jazzy (hello!), edit your posts and replace the part that says "kaksi" with "hd". That should remove the autoplay.

Sorry missed this one...

Chrome, I was using chrome. But clearly the problem is on my end not the systems. I'll keep fiddling, I'm an expert at fiddling with all sorts of things.
