Acappellas Browser

Its hard to find an acappella that fits into a mood or genre or style. It would be great if the pellas browser has the same style of the sample browser, taggin is great, and very useful.

agree, it is realy helpful, though it can be nice to create a remix in a different style the author has intended, so looking in other genres then your own choise to create a mix helps to break limits to your own style and others. Both ways have their profits, and breaking the limit of cataloged music is something we can do ourselves. So why not catalog them. It would be realy helpful.

I too feel that the acapella browser needs an update. Also the rap type still shows the GO TIME acapella from 24 september last year as last contribution.
I hope someone from the ccM/tunetrack team can give some reaction abot this.

The way I look for acapellas is this:
use the acapella tag in combination with apropriate genre’s tempo etc and remove remix and samples.

in order to get a jazz acappella with a bpm between 120 and 125 this wold be the way I right it down.

It takes a bit longer but will give good results (apart from rap acapella’s)

Yeah, is a good way to search, thanks. Anyway people uploading acappellas should have the option to mark if is male or female, mood, melodic singing, screaming, rapping, etc… Acappellas browser is so old fashion..

The lay out is indeed very old fashion. But you do have those options, just include them in your tags. Look over here for inspiration.

I found that the searching via tags (acappella’s or samples) gives much better results then using any of the search engines. Plus you get better listening (stream this page) and download (download all) options

Wow! Thanks for that tip!

I search for pellas via tags too (don’t really like the way the browser works), but I had been wondering if there was a way to exclude certain tags from search results. I never saw a way to do it from the Edit Tags interface though. How did you do it? Or did you have to just manually add the appropriate tags and minus symbols to the URL?

I got a tip from fourstones in another topic for excluding tags and then I worked out a way to use it in my advantage.
I usually start by pressing the main tag I’m looking for (in this case acappella’s) and then ad the rest manually. Excluding stuff is only possible by hand in the url

Tags work, the matter is, what if ppl doesnt tag properly a pella?… That’s why i suggested a minimum information filled in a list in a rollout way. A page with the lists for male, female, genre, mood, style, then a beautiful window with the text FILL YOUR TAGS HERE. I have found great pellas by chance and the tags were pretty poor.. something like tempo and “vocal”… pfff. that’s why the pellas browser needs to obligate the user in certain way to fill very valuable information for us, the producers…
