What's new in Music Connect?
February 12th, 2018
Our web-team has been working on this for a long time: a new search engine for Artist/Title searches in our Core online music database and Discogs.
- Faster searches: Artist/Title searches will now give you results instantly, much much faster than before.
- Improved stability: The new search engine is running on a dedicated server that is only doing these searches, resulting in a more stable experience. (in the past few months, there have been performance issues, especially on Saturday and Sunday)
- Better search results: The results are now more focussed, less fuzzy, as it will only show albums containing ALL your search term words (as opposed to the old search that gave you albums that matched ANY or your search term words).
- Single Search Box: Just one box for search (e.g. like Google or Amazon). No more separate Artist and Title boxes. Just enter (part of) the artist’s name and (part of) the title and you will get the best matching results. (see the screen shot above with “metallica justice” results”).
