    New forum area and section

    We’re excited to announce the release of a new area for the northernsounds.com community. NorthernSounds.NET
    and a Listening forum
    In our ongoing pursuit to enhance the user experience we have developed a free new “listening area” where users will have the ability to upload their compositions, music, videos and information about themselves to share with other users and the world!

    This new listening area is a powerful tool that can be used to promote yourself, share knowledge in an audio visual format and get constructive feedback from other users. Charts based on genre, producers and compositions allow you to know where you stand as far as user plays/download popularity. Other features include a radio station player which continuously streams the site’s top compositions and a TV channel that cycles through videos users have submitted. This is an area for you to showcase yourself or just kick back, relax and enjoy other users’ compositions. New Songs will be auto posted to the NorthernSounds.com Listening Area forum every 10min.

    Your user profile is totally customizable; you can change the look of your page to suit your personal taste. Upload pictures and videos to your gallery, upload your musical compositions and credit them in detail, add information about yourself, your projects and upcoming events.

    This area is an evolution of the Power User Profile; in addition to personal profile information the area offers a data base driven engine that showcases all users in a purposeful and positive way. You are able to search by style, genre, name of composer or title of composition. The home page features top compositions, new composers and featured works.

    In keeping with the NS spirit of “by the community, for the community” we are offering this service completely free of charge in the hopes that all users will share and help each other in the pursuit of excellence. This area is not replacing any of the existing features that make Northernsounds a great place to be; all that you love about NS is still there. This new area is meant to expand your options and enhance your experience.

    Enjoy!

    Wow - great work - i think this looks and sounds great.

    Can I add - I think this section can be 'enhanced' further for all users and listeners by implementing some of the 'rules' or procedures that are in the garritan listening room - afterall these were developed after a lot of discussion by some dedicated people over a period of time - to help make sure that different pieces got a good listening, and helped direct the traffic flow.

    At any rate - it'd be well worthwhile to take the Garritan page as a model!

    For example - currently - there are two pages worth of new pieces - with a grand total of Zero replies. So - I reckon it can be taken to the next level to help with that "pursuit of excellence"!

    Looking forward to more listening and the odd music post from myself.

    Hi masimon,

    Great site! Thanks!

    I would like to customize my page, change colors etc., but when I click on the '#' I get 'error on page' and I can't do any change...

    Thumbs up Re: New forum area and section

    Hi masimon,

    Congratulations for the new site. It is really amazing and useful for all the composers who enjoy this forum every day. This makes Northern Sounds the best online forum for composers.

    I have one question. My office PC, where I connect to the internet is under Windows Vista and IE 7. I cannot see any composer site in NorthernSounds.net. The page appears in the backround colour and I can only see the stars. No picture...nothing. In the rest of the new site I see always the error: (loaded with errors...)I have tested it in another PC under Windows XP and IE 7 and the same happens. I guess it is a problem of IE7. Can anyone confirm this?

    Thank you,

    I'm on XP, but also IE7 and it's exactly the same. But when you log-out and try to do the same without being logged on, it shows up fine - please try and confirm. Strange.

    But the site and idea itself are fantastic, thanks!!
