In audio commenting
I want to comment on a certain point in the audio
I'd like this too...
My proposed solution:
Introduce the 'Deep Links' feature that Youtube has (whether specific time or specific track, I'm not sure what the best implementation would be) http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=116618
If a specific time/track is mentioned in a comment, that becomes part of 'time' metadata for that specific comment. Users can also have the option to set a specific time for their comment (rather than having it in the text content of the comment).
When the mix gets to a time/track and a comment is posted for it - in the same manner that timestamps work for highlighting currently playing tracks - a comment is highlighted, and perhaps brought to the top of the list of comments.
This would possibly benefit from a new layout where comments run in a column next to the tracklist.
no, this is what´s most annoying on soundcloud. cause sometimes i just want to click through the audio for preview and the appearing comments are often hindering me from that.
This would be great - just add a user preference to hide it by default for those that don't like it... then add some cool inline visualiser waveform that goes crazier in sync with the amount of comments. :D That way it would be cooler than soundcloud....
This is a must for people who are into the 'mix' part of mixcloud not just the tracks - it should be possible to show respect for an awesome mix / scratching / mash up etc...
Completely agree on this - it's a "must-have" imo, and is one of the best things about soundcloud. On mixcloud you can comment on peoples mixes, but it's right at the bottom and there's also no option to comment on a mix if you're listening via the embeddable widget.
Without getting feedback on your mixes you're less likely to upload more, so to make it quick and easy for the listener is essential imo.
I agree with J Puddy - it's the best feature on Soundcloud… but there should be an option to switch it off, so as Forrester says, to "keep it clean" :)
Having said that, I am a bit disappointed at the lack of comments currently on mix pages. I wonder if this feature would encourage people to provide mix / track feedback?
No Keep It Clean!!! drives me mad that everyone has to have their 'say'
Comments per track in the tracklist would be a good start!
This idea in combination with a waveform statusbar would be even greater: http://feedback.mixcloud.com/forums/3043-general/suggestions/1458905-waveform-statusbar?ref=title

This would be gold. It's probably the only thing I like Soundcloud for.

Love this on Soundcloud. Would be huge on Mixcloud!!! This is a must feature.
Yeah per-song commenting would be awesome.
