Hi producthunt! Axel from cchound here (accompanied by @frida_wilhelmsson, @martinhs & @gylbert). We're happy to answer the questions or comments that you might have. We created cchound to help content creators find audio for their projects, something that we've struggled with ourselves. If you're interested in seeing the roadmap as it is right now, click below: https://trello.com/b/SAn8emo2/cc... As you might notice, it's heavily influenced by the feedback we got on HN, and we'd like to shape it further with the feedback you might have here! Thanks! /a

@frida_wilhelmsson @martinhs @gylbert @aabergkvist Very nice product, the UI is 👌, and there are NO INTRUSIVE ADS which is pretty much unheard of for this kind of free product. I'm interested then, how do you plan on making money? P.S. You do your kanbans from right to left, not left to right? 🤔

@booligoosh Thank you Ethan!! We have a couple of options available when it comes to monetization, and even though ads is a potential solution, we don't think it's the right way to go in this industry/vertical, at least not the way it's been done previously. - Monthly Membership Fee with added value, think flaticon, most likely. The theme is created by a japanese developer, that's a really nice catch :p

Thank you for this! This is really cool collection! ❤️ One thing is annoying - when you want to play next track you have to pause previous one.

I love me some free music (with attribution no problem at all). Thank you very much for this! Simple, clean and direct UI. Absolutely love it! I've listen to a couple of it and damn do they sound pretty good. As someone who makes videos every now and then I look forward to using them in my future videos!

@swiftpolar Thank you so much! Glad you like it!

Looks awesome, I may use this down the track and will recommend to some friends I know who make videos!

Pros:

Great UI, NO INTRUSIVE ADS

Cons:

Very slow to load

Thank you for the review Ethan! The performance part is prioritized indeed, we should have the speed back at an acceptable level this weekend. best, a

I'm really happy to see a new source of curated CC musics but I hate the Tumblr UI, especially this bad pagination...

It's ok for casual users but I think creators need more control and tools to find the perfect songs.

It looks like most of the files came from Soundcloud, so a simple playlist might be better for now.

I hope cchound will become a "real" website with a clean UI and more sources that I don't know yet 🙂

Pros:

A new source of CC musics, Ad-free

Cons:

Tumblr is a poor choice, popular sources

Thank you Artwo! This is some great feedback! Regarding the Cons part: - Even though we launched this (as an MVP, to see if people really needed this) only last friday, the feedback and usage has been overwhelming to say the least. Due to this, we've already started building "the 2.0". With the new release we will fix: - The UI, with focus on search/categorization. - A profile area, for both contributors as well as end-users: stats, save for later, save to collection and more is a part of this. - The performance issues (which is also the reason why we don't utilize an endless-scroll right now) @martinhs, could you chip in regarding sources and the selection? :)
Thanks so much for the feedback, Artwo! Regarding the sources: I am currently (and since a while back) scouring the web to find as many alternate or "rare" sources we can to have as diverse of a collection as possible. Soundcloud has just been such a great resource for the type of sound that catches our ear. The aim is to consolidate so you don't have to search it out on your own. A variety of sources/genres/sounds is for sure the end game though. More sources are in the send queue!
