Goodbye beta mode! We squashed all of the bugs!

All (known) bugs have been fixed! The entire Marketplace is up and running as well. We have mixing and mastering engineers in-house working around the clock getting the sound just right.

If you haven’t checked out the Boost promotions yet then you should definitely do that. Add your social profiles on My Account and then head over to Promotions, click on Boost then click the Create New button to view all of the options.

We have a new support team and a new custom built support system in place. Our support staff is currently working hard to get all of your music reviewed and approved as soon as possible as well as responding to every support request.

As a thank you we are offering up to a 100% bonus on deposits from now until the weekend is over! Deposits do not expire and they can be used for everything that we offer. Mixing, mastering, YouTube video creation, promotions, etc.

Inner Circles

What’s Inner Circle?

InnerCircles.ca is a microdonation system enabling music fans to financially support their favorite artist and music producers. When they join your Inner Circle they can donate as little as $1 in a single payment or a month recurring payment. 100% of their donation will go to the artist who they choose to support. Inner Circles is a great way to fund your next CD run or even to help you acquire new equipment for production or to go on tour. Inner Circles could even be used in conjunction with KickStarter.com to help fund projects that you post on that website.

InnerCircles.ca is currently in development and it’s planned release date has not yet been set but we are hoping to start testing an early pre-alpha version by the end of September at the latest.

Earnings reports

Monetization. Welcome to v3.0!

This is a game changer! Version 3.0 came way ahead of schedule. Version 2.5 was set for release by the end of July 2014 and 3.0 was to be completed in early 2015. But… here we are! We put all of our resources into developing this masterpiece. Unfortunately we had to pause development of LuckyHumanFoot.com in order to complete v3.0 (artist platform) months ahead of shedule. Development of LuckyHumanFoot.com will now resume and be developed in parallel with InnerCircles.ca (a future blog post about that will be posted shortly).

There are far too many updates, changes and new features to list in a single blog post. So we will create an internal blog for artist only and list them all there.

Lucky Human Foot

Run Rabbit, Run!

LuckyHumanFoot.com is almost ready for it’s Alpha release! We have been working on it around the clock to meet the impossible deadline that we have set for ourselves. Because the design changes so often the only screenshot that exists is of the updated Visualizer that has been borrowed and enhanced from DruHix.com. For those who care we will go into more detail on that below. As well as developer updates for the tech geeks who we like to build networks.

The new Visualizer is awesome! And great for parties or chill sessions with friends. Some of the new features include:

  • More colors + more responsive visual effects with the Rabbit logo
  • Mouse movement triggers Music Player controls
  • Flip through your playlist without exiting the visualizer
  • The effects auto suppress if your browser starts to run slow


Disclaimer:
The following is some heavy tech stuff for the IT professionals!

We have been stress testing the hell out of our API for months now. It’s nearing it’s public release so we thought we’d take a change, pop the hood, mess around with infrastructure and hopefully not break it.  We designed a new web cluster and tested it against our existing cluster. The results were impressive! We managed to design a server cluster that is 64 times faster!  Instead of scrapping the current setup we simply reassigned it to only work on low priority API calls that are not time sensitive. With the new cluster assigned to the high priority tasks with the addition of using the secondary cluster as a fail-over in the event that sometime goes wrong with the primary cluster. This is going to make future web development very easy not only for us but also for anyone using the API!

Stay tuned for the launch of our enterprise level solutions! Contact us, let us design and build a highly scalable network for you!
