How can we improve Beatport Music Store?

**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!

    Please, Beatport, read between the lines a bit when people make such requests: we want to be able to download all the possible Downloads we have with one button press. We don't simply want a 'Download All' button that is disabled and does nothing (such is the case in the current Beatport Pro application).

    Using the Beatport desktop app, the "Available" section changes its number constantly, never matching the number shown on the actual Beatport website (Right now the app shows 503, but the website shows 770). I've clicked the Download All button multiple times, and it downloaded 711 actual files, but the playlist shows 884 items, with many duplicate rows (many/all of which point to the same file) and no easy way to get rid of the duplicates or filter for uniqueness. The website lacks a "Download All" button, and clicking 770 Download buttons one by one is a positively ridiculous proposition. I understand this is difficult to implement, but maybe there's a "Download All" button, which adds us to a queue, ZIPs all the files, and emails us a download link when it's ready. Maybe that ZIP file is stored temporarily on an FTP server so we don't kill your main website with the traffic. Or maybe investigate using Torrent technology for this, the way that different Linux websites do for their disk image download links. Frankly I don't care how it's implemented, as long as it is available, and it works, and I actually get to download every song I paid for and I can be sure that I am not missing any before the download deadline expires.

    everytime i download a new set of songs the downloader forces me to redownload all tracks i have.its driving me crazy how can a company of that size not provide their users with atleast a solid app?

    Yes please. My main reason I typically avoid beatport like the plague. Do something about this please. This is ridiculous. Please login to your AOL account and make the changes to the site ASAP. OMG!!!

    Wow, just bought 2 albums and I forgot that I have to download it track by track on Beatport. And how should I know the track order? I need to check internet and rename each track and add 01, 02, etc. manually. Needless to mention that your file names are weird, for example the original track name is "Together, We Are... (Remix)" while your name is "404020_Together__We_Are____Remix". WTF? I will purchase from somewhere else next time.

    Wow. I just logged in on mobile for the Above & Beyond album and it is unusable when I have to download each song individually. "DOWNLOAD ENTIRE ALBUM" button should be available.

    I won't be buying here again. You guys really need to remember that we don't have to pay for the music. We do it out of loyalty so you really need to put the effort in on convenience.

    This is multi-years now.

    since bpdownloader seems to be offline for a while now and bp pro is more crap than i could use, this or similar improvements becomes urgent NOW. but after 2ahalf years of nothing is happening at all, it seems useless to ask for improvements - like in other tabs too. what is this whole "How can we improve Beatport Music Store?" thing for????

  • Lyrael commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Beatport Downloader (now Beatport Pro) is not a solution to this. If I wanted iTunes I'd buy from iTunes. Beatport Pro is just a bad version of that.

    +1 for Download All (as zip, from the website, without installing any more crapware). Won't be buying any more from BP until this is fixed.

    I want zip, ´damn! This is quite stupid, i mean searching for music realeses etc is easy, organized, player.. i like it. But downloading every single track one by one in two clicks? That´s very annoying.

  • joneisele commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I just purchased a compilation album with 50 songs. How annoying. I just found another compilation album with 50 songs and it is on Amazon as well. Gee guess which site will get my next purchase?

    sounds like the beatport downloader does what I want but why should i need another app to do what should be a basic function.

  • wjbramwell commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Also, clicking the Download button triggers off a slide-down alert from the top of the screen confirming the download before the browser has even initiated it. This has resulted in me clicking a few of the Download buttons in succession and even when I wait for the confirmation to slide down, if I click the next Download before the browser has started the download, Beatport confirms the download but the browser will only kick off one at a time. So you end up with a button marked 'Downloaded' but the browser hasn't downloaded that particular track.

  • wjbramwell commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I'm kinda surprised that this still isn't an option. Pretty clunky UX if you ask me...I just bought an album with over 20 tracks and I really don't see myself buying multiple tracks off Beatport again until they've implemented batch downloads.
