New Solution for Keeping Track of Sounds

As the club’s collection expands, it’s inevitable that I’m going to need to come up with different solutions to how we can keep all this audio well organized and easily accessible. I’ve been thinking for a while now about how best to keep members aware of any new contributions that are uploaded – hence the decision to start tweeting all new uploads.
However, another solution fell into my lap last week via a Soundcloud newsletter which mentioned a new app called Memolane. I really like Memolane’s design and the way it displays Soundcloud updates so I’ve decided to use it in the BROWSE THE COLLECTION page (in the menu at the top of this page) to showcase all the MP3 samples of contributions as and when they are uploaded (you can still browse by themes as well if you’d rather).
In this way, if members choose to download en masse intermittently, they can now keep track of what’s been added to the collection since their last visit. Together with the twitter alerts, hopefully members will find it easier than ever to keep up to date with their copies of the club’s collection. However, besides being a good inventory tool for existing members, I think it’s also an interesting alternative way for new visitors to the site to investigate and audition the collection too.
Hope you like it !
