Spotify integration

Postby Noss281 on 31 Mar 2017, 05:49

My suggestion is that for new Cross version 4.0 we will get spotify or Apple Music or pulselocker for streaming music it will really put Cross on the top of DJ software.

Using streaming music for public is against the license by most providers.

So integration would main MixVibes could be held liable for providing this situation.

Also streaming audio is usually played via an audio buffer of seconds. Which means responsiveness is horrible as appx 5ms would be required.

And for bedroom DJs? Or to check how a song fit well in a DJ set before buying it?

It would be a feature offered by Cross and allowed by Spotify. The DJ is responsible for using or not this feature, not Mixvibes.

Algoriddim implements Spotify in Djay (and Spotify promote Djay for this integration). DJuced integrates Qobuz too in the last beta. What about Deezer, Google Play Music, Apple Music, Tidal, etc...?

Virtual DJ has its own store and Serato integrates Pulselocker (these 2 solutions are compliant with legal licences).

This basically is true. However if even 'just' being sued by one of the artists (or whoever involved) is a costly issue. Several $1000 for just sending a reply by a lawyer....

It wouldn't be the first time a software manufacturer is being sued for abuse by users.

The others you suggested have a commercial license given your description. So might cover the commercial use. Nevertheless be aware that it's not just one right. Artist(s), Producer, composer, distribution and more are involved by seperate laws.

Why does it work with Soundcloud and not with Spotify ? Isn't that the same ? Streaming ? And in Soundcloud I can also find music from artists, so I can get sued ??? And I pay for my Spotify-account, and not for Soundcloud...

Solution might be that you can use the music from your Spotify account that you've downloaded (offline-modus), so you don't suffer lag when mixing (no streaming) ?

Soundcloud doesn't allow content which has been copied into mixes without having the right to it. Until some years ago they were less strict, which caused them to be sued and almost went down the drain.

They did a major clean up of there content and ever since they have pretty strict kept policies.

If you downloaded from spotify you're still not allow to 'distribute' the music. Further spotify is a streaming service with significant delay (seconds) whereas Soundcloud is able to send the full track you can use it for DJing with milliseconds responsiveness.
