    updating my windows doesn't seem to be possible for me at this point. i will have to steal my parents new laptop when they're not around to publish anything now, unfortunately.

    When are genre charts supposed to start? I thought they would begin with this week but this doesn't seem to be the case

    Also, i just realized Flash isn't supported anymore. I'm running windows vista with chrome version 49, it's telling me i need chrome 63 but i honestly don't even know if i can get that version. Are my audiotool days over? I was about to start on a brand new album but it's dawning on me that i might never be able to make another track ever again if i don't get this figured out.

    it's not thatI don't appreciate the amount of work that was put into this, but to me this layout is not very well thought out. certain aspects of it like the seemingly random shades of gray to the stock images used for the genre pages, to the lack of a design theme in the icons and buttons on this site, all make this site much less professional and polished. a lot of the new functions like the new track page and the notification feed in the top right are nice additions, but are not implemented in a natural way. at the moment the gui of this website is confusing and cluttered and imo a little ugly. It all seems kinda rushed and not thought out as much as it should be. I think that since next is out, instead of focusing on adding features to the app, try making this website cohesive and easier to interact with. i dont mean to be harsh in any of this, but the user experience is seeming like it's becoming an afterthought at this point and could turn away potential new users

      i would agree that there are some cohesion and general design decisions you could have improved. but you can still improve them down the line

      also i'm sure you guys have your own thoughts about this issue, but one design decision i really have questions about is that the charts are kind of hidden. it's been like this since you guys implemented the feed of course, but i strongly think that the charts should be at the top of the home page. having the charts so well promoted used to make me feel so much more connected to the audiotool community and what was going on. yes of course it is possible for users to simply scroll down - but website design is a matter of which user behaviours you want to encourage, and i don't feel that users are being properly encouraged to engage in the current activity of the community.

    Hey guys, yes, i noticed things are different, i'm just not sure if i'm missing something here in terms of the display quality the way everything shows up on my screen everything looks disjointed and unorganized, all my track images are giant and there's no clear definition of separate sections. Also, i am getting constant upsy-daisy error messages. I'm confused to say the least, is this the aforementioned improvement or is my computer too old to process the changes? Please advise.

    I got a new idea, what about if can do CC0 samples. (link is only visible to registered users)

    This will not only help, it will also get rid of copyright.

    As much as I like what you guys are doing with this new layout, and the grey theme in general, I'm still a somewhat newer user that's become so accustomed to the light theme. I was just wondering if you devs would maybe consider having the grey theme as an optional setting? Kind of like Discord and now YouTube have a toggle in the option to switch between either theme. I love this new theme for sure but it would be nice to peek back into the older layout, not the old grey layout i mean, but the previous layout.

    how do people record such nice sounds when I sing / talk into the recorder and play it back it sounds like it's to loud or theirs to much white noise how can I fix this?

      Try to get the best possible recording before you need to use software to fix it. Ari's tips about quieting your environment are great. Try also different rooms and see which one provides the best acoustics. Place yourself as far away from any walls or windows (in other words, try the center of the room) so that you minimize the contribution of sound reflections. And experiment with the distance between microphone and mouth/chest and placement/orientation of microphone so that you find the best position and direction.

      most likely you need a better mic that doesn't pick up so much background noise, I'm actually saving up for an Audio-Technica AT2035 atm. Another good thing is to turn off any fans or A/C window units you may have in the room, anything that could be humming or could be picked up by a mic. eq'ing the right frequencies out does wonders as well. Also, if you have FL studio, i have a vid that will help (link is only visible to registered users)

      Audacity does very much to get you some great sample. A lot of master/ eq/effect tools can be found there.
