New Theme: Soundcheck

Today I’m totally jazzed up to announce the launch of a feature-rich audio theme perfect for any band, artist, or musician on WordPress.com.

Designed by Luke McDonald of Press75, Soundcheck ships with a custom MP3 player that allows your visitors to browse, select, play, and skip through tracks right on your website. Also included in the theme is gigs and events functionality, four custom widgets, four custom page templates, and a variety of other theme options that you’ll love.

    Brilliant theme – I bet WP could wipe off MySpace from the face of the web, once and for all, were this free.

    Woah- a Gigs & Events Functionality- like a working calendar? That’s one HUGE thing WordPress needs for clubs & organizations- a calendar like Yahoo where upcoming events can be put in, and seen at a glance. Even reminders sent to users who sign up for such things.

    Oh, please, please, please, pretty please?

    This could just be the ticket needed to officially Replace Myspace and if the progressive ideas that seems to keep coming out for wordpress, I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes the new Facebook. Great post!

    I must say, incorporating a Soundcheck theme into the WordPress environment is a wonderful idea and WILL work well. The only unfortunate side, that I see at the moment, is that the PRICE seems to be relatively high. Being a musician, $75.00 is a bit high. I know the saying, ‘you get what you pay for”, but in this case, I believe that unless your an established musician looking to branch out on wordpress, it’s doesn’t seem like a suitable price for the hard working struggling musician. In my opinion that’s a HUGE percentage of people out there.
    I have been a supporter of Soundcheck and I’m certainly going to exlpore the Souncheck WordPress themea bit more as well. My band TANADRA is starting to make some buzz in the indie music scene so this is certainly a decent option for us to look into.

    Great article by the way! Thank you.

      It’s the price of two music stands, or dinner and drinks for two at a nice restaurant, and gives your band a look that you would pay thousands to develop if you were doing it from scratch. You’re right it’s all relative though. )

      And it’s $75 once, and the band gets to use it every day, every year… to present a polished appearance to the world. That’s pretty damm cheap if you ask me. (Not to mention, it’s a business expense.)
