We've been testing out some new features and slight changes to the Free Music Archive, this month, and we'd love your feedback.
The big #1 is Tagging. Any registered user can tag a track, artist, or album. This will help create community-generated tag pages like this one for Banjo and this one for Baltimore.
Your tags'll now pop up in a new Recent Activity Feed (on the homepage), along with user-generated blog posts, mixes, and comments. Soon, these feeds will also be available on your own profile, as well as on Artist, Curator, and Label pages to track discussion and help users collaborate
Other recent changes include .zip downloads for Albums and Mixes,
and the embeddable player (which you may have already seen in action on
this here blog). Like the embedded mix over there <-- which was something I made for
warm, rainy weather when you'd least expect it.
We all hold high expectations for the FMA, and user feedback is our guide, so let us know what you think of these changes by leaving a comment or by emailing.
