  1. **Offer FLAC format in addition to (or instead of) WAV**

    FLAC files are the same quality as WAV, but are much smaller and can include tags and album art.

    Hello everybody. Today we introduced AIFF as a new lossless format that you can select during purchase. We’re hoping that this will address some of the functionality you’ve been asking for (metadata and album art in a lossless file). This forum will stay open so people can continue to vote for FLAC support and we would love to hear about your experiences using our AIFF downloads. For more information on why we started with AIFF, see this post: http://news.beatport.com/blog/2011/09/09/introducing-aiff-format/.

  2. **Hide Re-Releases**

    Beatport can check it and to do it separated, the people don't know when a tracks is new or not because nowadays all the tracks are together

    I think that´s important to make possible a right follow up of artists and don´t disturb with old stuffs

    The old tracks re-released can be in other tab in the same artist page like VA, compilations, etc

    It´s no problem of the artists, because each label sign new license contract with other labels and the artist can not to control it

  3. **Download Multiple Tracks/Albums in .ZIP**

    If I purchase an entire album, I should be able to download it in one hit - e.g. in a zip file or similar. I just purchased an album and had to download each track one by one, right-clicking and saving from the player for each one. Painful and unnecessary!

  4. **Recommendations Does NOT Include Previous Purchases**

    Hi , The 'recommended tracks' section should not recommend tracks you have purchased already. Its easy to add this feature I'm sure?
    thanks for listening!

  5. ***Cheaper Pricing & Include VAT***

    iTunes, Amazon etc offer there music cheaper than Beatport.

    It might be an idea to reduce the price of songs and include VAT/Taxes in the prices shown.

  6. **Add a Download All Button**

    it is really annoying to purchase tracks in bulk and then have to manually click each single one to download.

    i can complain about many items with your site, but this one frustrates me the most.

  7. **Adjust Download Track Titles in Account Settings**

    When I download a track from Beatport the track will read "registernnumber_songtitle_remix"
    Can this be changed to:
    "Artist - Title (remix)" ?
    This would make things so much easier and less time consuming. I have to rename every single track and look for details to make it complete. A headache.

  8. **Allow Follow of Label / Artist from player**

    Same as you could on the old site. Now it is inconvenient to have to navigate the page of artist or label to follow them.

    HI – My apologies, but which new releases system are you mentioning? Is this the homepage new releases? They are all updated on a weekly basis?

  10. **Improvements to My Beatport - ALL FEEDBACK ON MY BEATPORT**

    How my listening used to work >
    1. Select My Beatport.
    2. Select a date range
    3. Sort by oldest date first.
    4. Press play on the first tune.
    5. I keep my left hand on the arrow keys, and the right on the mouse, hovered over the clip. That way I can skip forward quickly, two or three times each tune, to see if anything catches my ear. Otherwise, I press the right arrow key and move on. No need to use a queue or anything
    How it works now > I have to use the add to queue…

  11. **Hide Player Option**

    It would be nice to add an option to hide the player for those who are just browsing. Small yet convenient to music buyers!

  12. **Player/Queue Feature Feedback**

    The new player on the pro site is almost unusable.

    INCREASE THE SIZE (or at least make it scalable for different devices).
    - We used to be able to see a whole album release or more. Now we can't see more than 4.5 tracks at a time. if you have hundreds of tracks in your player to go through, trying to find a certain one is impossible.

    FIX PLAY ORDER AFTER REMOVING A TRACK
    - When you remove a track from the player, the 'track cursor', returns to the top of the list, rather than the next track. If you…

  13. **Store Play Queue and Played Content in Account**

    Retaining of current play queues, against user accounts.

    For example, If I have a queue of tunes loaded on my MacBook, I'd like to be able to log in – using my same account – on my iPhone and keep listening to the same list.

    Currently, browser crashes, too, are painful, as the playlists are lost.

    Is this functionality on the horizon?

  14. Bring back the "Chill Out" genre!

    Seeing as the Electronica / Downtempo chart is just filled with Deep House, Techno and Progressive House, I think the proper Chill Out genre chart/section serves a great purpose. It might not be the most popular genre on Beatport, but it's for sure a genre people will browse every now and then. It's also a very clean chart and easy to maintain.

    It's useful for both labels and consumers to have a solid place to get and expose this kind of music and it's a shame you removed it.

  15. **Add Remixers, Labels, BPM, Key to Cart & Hold Bin Grids**

    Once in your shopping cart, the remixer no longer shows up, nor does the label, along with BPM, key, and other attributes. These things are very helpful / important to see in the shopping cart - you want to know you're not buying 10 songs on the same label accidentally, or by the same remixer. Only after checking out yesterday and using BP Downloader did I realize that I'd purchased 3 songs remixed by the same artist, unknowingly, because my cart didn't specify remixers.

  16. Invoice download

    It would be great if you could download the entire bills a year, in the customer's account.

    It facilitates the creation of the tax return.

  17. **Territory Restricted Tracks Watchlist**

    Given that there are some tracks that are restricted in some areas to certain labels, it would be great to allow territory restricted tracks to be visible to those who can't buy and download them, but with a twist: Clicking on the territory restricted track would add it to a user's watchlist for when they might become available on Beatport under a different label or if the label reconsiders their position and allows them to be sold in that territory at a later date.

    Labels could also gauge potential demand for some territories using database figures showing how many people…

  18. **Display/Filter by Mood, Venue, Set Time, and Vocal Tags**

    I think something that will be very helpful is the ability for Artists/Labels to be able to tag their songs/albums. One of the things that myself, and many others I talk to loathe about Beatport is the genre restrictions. I understand that it isn't feasible to create a new genre tag on Beatport for every little sub genre that exists. However, let's be real. It IS a problem when the Electro House & Progressive House genres are overloaded with Bigroom EDM tracks because they have nowhere else to put them. Tagging would help this a lot. If I want to…

  19. **Add Tagging to Pro for Web (Mood, Vocal, Venue, Set Time)**

    Getting fed up with trying to find specific styles within large genres like progressive house and techno. Given that the odds of some genres getting misfiled are great, such as EDM into tech house and so forth, why not allow the community to create some tags for songs and then allow members to upvote the most appropriate tags? For example, in breaks, psybreaks is a subgenre that is not accounted for, but community tagging can help some people to identify psybreaks tunes quicker. Same for techfunk and so on.

  20. ***Higher Bitrate Previews***

    The quality (mostly the high frequencies of the previews) are too low.

    Most users probably have a big list of songs to go through every few weeks/months. So previewing goes fast. For me, if a song sucks, in a few seconds I'm skipping to the next song. Lately it happens that I buy songs that I had initially skipped but because of hearing it a dj mix set or on youtube with much better quality dynamics, I go back and add it to the crate.

    This probably has negative impact on sales, since relatively new and unknown songs don't give…
