Im not sure what is just a"beta phaze", and what is here to stay, But I just dont understand why does audio preview is so cumbersome?


Why not use flash technology, like the video section, where mouse overing the icon plays the sound immediatly?  why do I need to download every sound to my PC to here it? or open it with ITUNE and to lose it in the song list....


I would creat different icons for different types of audio, like an icon for SFX, an icon for electronic music, one for classic and so on..... so when getting the search result, the buyer will visually pick the samples he is most interested in. 


seconed thing I wanted to draw one's attention to, is the audio watermark.... the current one is just disastrous.  It should be a quiet whisper in the back... and not those metronome/bells in the front.


I hope I was helpfull... I have only good intentions.

Audio previews are being worked on - they are not yet enabled and will be flash when up and running. You will not have to download your songs


Icons are also created, however until the audio CV is fully populated the icons will not be changed over.


Watermark is only temporary and should be up when the previews are enabled.


Thanks for your patience.
