In the fall of 2016 we introduced a beta version of Spinitron Search that allows users to search the music played across all stations that use Spinitron. Simple to use but fast and effective, it shows all spins in the last month matching the your search keywords. People in the music business have found this useful in their work since it can, for example, identify the stations that have played their music or that of the artists they represent.
For a long time it has been our ambition to offer analytic tools commercially to the music business and Spinitron Search will be our first offering.
A paywall comes to Spinitron Search in July 2017.
In the last few weeks we have ironed out the bugs in Spinitron Search and it is providing accurate and complete search results (as far as we know*). The next step is to roll out v1.0 to replace the current public beta.
Relative to the current beta, which searches within the last month of spins, v1.0 will have
Free Search that is almost identical to the current beta but searches for spins only in the last 24 hours relative to the moment the search is made.
Standard Search for $40 per user per month that behaves like the current beta except it has
- access to the last three months of spins, and
- a date range picker that allows you to constrain a search to any day or one week within the past three months.
Advanced Search is coming soon at a higher price point. It uses an entirely different user interface allowing keyword search on a per-field basis, e.g. you can filter the search results by artist, album, song, label, station, etc. It also allows paging complete result sets and sorting by different fields. Especially interesting is a ranking feature to produce a “chart” of the most played artists, albums, or song within your filtered search. In due course we plan to add geographic filtering and visualization of results.
More distant plans include a real-time notification service that allow you to save search criteria and receive a notification when a new spin matches.
