Are you a lover of indie (independently produced) as well as mainstream music? Do you love making playlists and sharing them with friends? If so, you’re going to want to check out a music service called Party Cloud.
It allows you to build your own playlists of indie (as well as mainstream) music and access it from anywhere that has a decent internet connection. It is simple to use, loaded with tons of tracks to explore and mix, and is 100% free.
I’ve always loved putting together groups of songs, ever since I discovered the concept of a mix tape. Bringing a list of tunes together and sharing it with friends has been something I have enjoyed for a long time, so it’s nice to have found Party Cloud because it allows me to do so in a new way that really reflects the age we’re in: Digitally.
Party Cloud is a free web site and service that allows you to mix up playlists, DJ style, on a virtual mix board online. It’s contained entirely within the pages of the net so you won’t have to download anything to use it. Currently there are two versions; a new and an old one. The old one works with nearly any browser, including Chrome, so it is the one I tested for this post. The new one does not work with Chrome.
You’ll be able to choose from millions of songs to create your mix or play list, and you can then access that list from any internet capable device and play those songs. You’ll also have two virtual turntables, and the ability to do all the thing they are meant for, like cross fading and mixing of separate tracks. The turntable system is not robust, but it is effective and easy to figure out without much in the way of help. Party Cloud also has an Auto-Mix feature that will automatically mix your chosen playlist if you don’t feel like doing it yourself. The play list system is equally simple and effective and these two things combined make for a great experience, using this program.
The amount of music available on there is unbelievable. Everything from Barbara Streisand to Justin Timberlake and anything in between. There’s surely more than a few tracks on there you will want, and they are easy to find with either the direct search feature or the suggested tracks from the hot list and there is even a random tracks option that will pick tracks for the play list on it’s own, based on genres you enter into the box. This means you can have an automatically created list of tracks from diverse genres or similar ones, depending on your desire. From trance to metal to classical, there’s music available for any taste.
This service is handy, effective, and free. That’s the definition of quality freeware, in my opinion, and the fact that this particular program allows me to play my music mixes when I’m away from my own PC makes it one of the more useful software out there. Until next time, my friends.
