How can we improve Beatport Mixes?

Price scale based on number of songs

It seems like the current price is set in stone regardless of the number of songs in the mix. Which means that a 40 minute mix will have the same price as a 2 hour mix. I would prefer to see the possibility of this scaling based on the amount of songs.

    I agree a lot on this!

    The problem right now is that some really don't want to pay $10 for a one hour dj mix when they can pay $10 for a two hours one. It is really annoying to see people not buying a mix that I even sent to master because I just used 15 tracks instead of 25.

    Maybe if we were allowed to set a price depending on the time of the mix and how much we would like it to be sold for. Some people would actually buy more mixes if every mix is like $5.00 instead of $9.99

    I completely agree! Except no time limitation. If that cannot be done, then yes the time limitation. There are VERY few tracks I have not purchased on Beatport. It would be great to showcase what myself and other DJs have done with what they bought on there as well by allowing for a free promo mix!

    I don't like the idea of pricing based on songs. If anything, it should be based on time, length of entire mix. If you base pricing on individual tracks, people are going to be upset that "you didn't play enough of that one", and "I had to pay for you to use thirty seconds of that". In an ideal world there should be a "soundhound" type app that scans the waveform and determines exactly how much 'needle-time' each track enjoyed and split the proceeds accordingly.

    I think the pricing should also take into consideration the current price of the tracks used in the mix
