NEW LISTENING BOOTH RULES <--- PROBABLY A GOOD IDEA TO READ THIS <--- YES, SERIOUSLY


The Listening Booth

Here's the place to get feedback on your tracks, there are a few things to note before posting here:

  • Must be a member for 7 days before posting threads, and 30 meaningful posts in other areas of the forum. (no “Great thread”, “Wow I'm impressed”, “this is sounding great!”), this place relies on people adding something of value, if you are found to be 'post count bumping' you will find a Mod hot on your heels and will find your post count dropping faster than you can type your one word replies.
  • After 30 days, you may post threads in the Listening Booth. However, you may only post 1 thread per week until you have 300 posts on the forum as a whole. This is done to reduce the amount of people posting 10-20 tracks a day and pushing other people's music on the board out of sight, and also to encourage people who want to post as many threads as they want to be more active on the board. The Listening Booth is not there for you to promote fifteen tracks, it's there for critique and feedback, so go and make some meaningful posts in the Listening Booth or around other parts of the forum! (IDMf Admins, Moderators, Supporters, Artists, and Veterans are exempt from this rule.)
  • If you are posting a track for feedback then try giving some to others first, even if you don't feel qualified feel free to state your opinions (but remember make them meaningful, just saying “great track ” or "I like the kick" is no help at all. Try and write more than a couple of sentences, be specific about particular aspects you like/dislike and what quality it is that made you notice it. Really consider your feedback, the listening booth is a privilege treat it like one.
  • Don't make loads of threads, the Listening Booth is a popular place and even with everyone making one thread every couple of weeks theres a lot of traffic, don't abuse the facility.
  • If you aren't looking for feedback or don't want to give any, don't post your track in the Listening Booth.
  • Finished tracks on releases go in the Members Release Section, NOT the Listening Booth.
  • No constant thread bumping, if you haven't received any feedback and have been giving loads to others wait a week and then feel free to bump your thread once.
  • Try to tell us a bit about your track. If you had any inspiration that got it started, if you had any intentions while creating it and if you had any plans for it. Any and all information like this will really help your song to stand out and to be more memorable. This isn't completely necessary, but it is encouraged.
  • Be respectful of others and their criticism. Feel free to talk about what people have to say about your music, but never resort to offensive name calling or bad talking in any way. We're all here to help and learn.
  • On the other hand, if anyone is notably abusive or rude regarding your music (e.g. "this is utter crap") and offers no signs of constructiveness feel free to report them and we'll have them sorted.
  • Check out this thread to learn how to use soundcloud tags: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
  • When creating a thread please use the title format: [Genre] Artist - Track name
  • Don't post material you didn't create.
  • Please do not post multiple tracks in the same thread. We ask this because the Listening Booth is not supposed to be an advertisement, it is not another social media dumping ground for you to "get exposure". You don't need to ask people to check you out on Youtube or Soundcloud either. Just put that info in your signature (that's what it's for) and if people hear something they like, they will follow up on their natural curiosity.

I just edited close to 30 tracks here because they didn't follow this format, and I didn't want people to assume we were just assholes when 30 tracks got deleted from the LB "without warning" (note the scare quotes there).

So yes, this is an actual rule. It helps to read the rules. If you don't know what genre it is, it's safe to assume you're making electronic music (electronic music forum, duh) and if you don't actually have a project name, just use your username.
