Official TIDAL HIFI Music Wish List


Recommended Posts

Now that TIDAL HIFI has launched in the US and UK (Computer Audiophile - The TIDAL HIFI Revolution Starts Today) many of us will find that some music isn't available on the service just yet. This thread is hear to let the people at TIDAL HIFI know what music we want on the service. Please use this thread as a MUSIC WISH LIST only. Can't find something on TIDAL? Enter it in this thread. Having problems with the apps? Start a new thread.

 

P.S. The TIDAL HIFI people will be reading this thread :~)

I can give specifics if required but, in general, I'm seeing they have a much smaller selection of new classical releases than the other lossless streaming service I use (the French one).

 

For example, I found 33 new October classical releases on the French site. Of these, only 13 are available from Tidal - the other 20 were not found.

 

As a side note, it is very difficult to find new releases at all. There is a "What's New" section, but no way to break that down by genre (I'm primarily interested in classical and jazz - don't want to wade through all the other genres I'm not interested in). And if I go to the section where it *is* broken out by genre, there's no "new releases" filter :/

If i am understanding the web interface properly, i see less than 100 classical albums. Is this correct? If so, more classical! It does sound very nice through my system.

Thanks for this initiative, Chris! We want to make you all aware that there is lots of music still on the way in. Some of the US label deals came through at the very last minute before launch and then add the logistics of submitting and ingesting the music. But we will certainly hang out here on this thread and prioritise up whatever's wanted here if there is a queue. :)

Hi, John - you'd better find the Genres button out in the left menu and select your wanted genres. We have a classical editor sorting those pages. It's like the What's New section, but only for the genre you're after.

 

Can you give me some examples of missing classical albums? Some might be stuck in queue. The silly thing was that we have most music, but for some of the major labels - we have to ingest everything over again to get US territory rights correct with them and this causes a rather big queue. I can assure you that there's very few labels we don't have agreements with - so most repertoire should be there.

Thanks for this, John. Will have our classical editor check this out and I'll get you an answer. The first one I found straight away. There's tons of music on its way all the time: http://tidalhifi.com/album/35908250

So it may just be the search algorithm that needs "help" - the same album does *not* show up in the search results in the OS X desktop app:

There's hundreds of thousands of classical albums in our catalogue. The 100 albums you see are only the NEW albums :)

Thank you.. I was just starting to realize this fact as I searched by artist or composer. Wow!

I'm primarily a classical listener. Is there no way to search for composer? For example, I can search for Stravinsky and find albums where he is conductor, but how do I find all albums containing works composed by Stravinsky? Really struggling with this.

 

Would really like advanced search. For the future I'd very much like full featured navigation of classical titles by composer, era, country/region, type (e.g. sonata, opera, suite,symphony, etc.).

 

The sound is a clear step up. Good work!

 

For some albums, not all tracks are active. Perhaps the the delay with the ingestion queue that you mention above. E.g., see Aimard at Carnegie Hall.

 

The Mac application universally gives me the error "Track Not Valid." I've reported this to the Tidal help desk.

This was apparently a temporary system outage. Works fine now. Support got back to me within the hour.

I'm enjoying Tidal. I would like to see more renaissance/baroque lute music, especially from 3 of the best lutenists currently playing:

 

Paul O'Dette: I only found 3 older recordings

 

Hopkinson Smith: didn't find anything

 

Jakob Lindberg: also nothing

 

Compare with Spotify or Qobuz and you'll see how much is available by these 3.

 

Thanks.

It should be easy to do with Aurender's iPad app which can search by composer. The upgraded app and server firmware which will incorporate Tidal streaming are targeted for release later this year.

I am really enjoying this service and wish them great success. I would like to see a Genre selection for "New Age". You know, the kind of music that puts you back to sleep in the morning. Also, one for "Ambient/SPA" would be great. This stuff is great for background music while working. Much of this music is there but you have to know the artists to search for. I am listening to David Arkenstone right now and the sound quality is very good with the default output to my DAC but when I run it through JPlay (using Loopback in JRiver) it is outstanding.

 

Best of luck and good wishes.

How about ECM recordings? Tidal lists them but you can't actually listen to them.

 

+1

 

Not sure this is Tidal's fault. Manfred seems to be pretty weird when it comes to CD and better quality downloads and streaming. Is the ECM stuff available on Tidal in the UK?

Good to know!

 

This must mean that Tidal supports the metadata field for composer. I hope they expose this (via search or navigation features) in their computer and mobile interfaces. I realize it's not much use for popular music, but it's essential for classical, IMO.

Based on a private preview of an Aurender X100L streaming WiMP at RMAF and the fact that the Aurender software supports searching by composer in addition to song, artist, album, genre, and conductor, I am assuming that such searches can be done on Tidal as well, especially considering how much information they include on the recordings -- see the video of the RMAF seminar when it gets published. Meanwhile perhaps Tidal can confirm this.

Boy Howdy

 

I second this.

 

Some scattered ECM titles are available on other sites, but nothing reliable. Were TIDAL to make a substantial library available, I'd be much more likely to extend my listening beyond the 30 day trial. As it stands right now for my listening purposes, I don't see the value proposition in TIDAL that would make me spend 2x what Spotify Premium costs.

 

Oh, and hi everyone. Long time listener, first time caller.

Aurender has confirmed this. Their iPad app enables toggling between music stored locally and that from Tidal, so your playlists can include both. You can search on any field, including composer and conductor. With Tidal streaming selected there are tabs to view recommendations, genres, moods, and new and recommended playlists. I can't wait to play with it in the next few days.

The Beatles.

 

Their original albums are missing.

I have to assume the record label is playing hardball here, but c'mon, man! ;)

 

Also: When can we expect to see new releases to appear on TIDAL? Is there a certain amount of time after the CD/LP has been delivered to stores? Is there a specific day of the week that we should look for?

I've spent some time with Tidal and am generally impressed.

 

However, many of the classical music selections from Universal Classics (Decca, Deutsche Grammophon) are missing tracks. This is very annoying when listening to classical music. I've noticed that this is particularly a a problem with the Decca and Deutsche Grammophon Original Series, but happens with many selections. What is especially annoying for a selection is that only one of the tracks is greyed out -- why would one be greyed out, but 15 are available? This is not pop music!!

 

Can this be addressed.

 

Also, I notice that you are missing selections from Harmonia Mundi. Will these be added?
