This article covers tips and tricks on what to do if you try to create a soundtrack using different genres and energy levels and get no results.
How it works
This feature works by including songs in your soundtrack as you select genres, sounds, decades and energies. As soon as you select any of the mentioned categories you start crafting your own soundtrack by removing songs from our global library not included in your selections. This also implies that if you, for example, don’t select any genre, you will get a soundtrack containing all genres. The same logic applies to all categories.
What if I get no results?
If you get no songs after selecting the genres, sounds, decades and energies you desire it may be useful to know what each category implies and then try adjusting the different selections.
Energy, Genre and Decades
These categories are expanding ones; meaning that after having made an initial selection the more energy levels, genres and decades you select, the more songs that will be recommended to you. If you yield a result of zero songs, it may be useful to adjust the energy levels or genres to include more songs. For example, you could select a “low” and a “very low” energy level as opposed to just including “low”, or include both “pop” and “pop rock” genres in order to broaden the results. It is also important to keep in mind your business type and general ambiance you want to expose your customers to. For example, if you are a rock bar you might select high energy rock and perhaps even a certain decade.
This category works in the opposite way compared to the other categories as the more sounds you select, the fewer songs you will get. For example, if you choose the sound “elegant” you will get all songs marked as “elegant” but if you choose both “elegant” and “serious” only songs marked as both elegant and serious will be included. An exception here is if you choose opposing sounds, such as “rugged” and “elegant”. In these cases, a soundtrack containing songs individually marked as “rugged” or “elegant” will be placed together. However, we recommend selecting sounds that go together rather than opposing ones to create a more coherent soundtrack. Here it is also key that your business type is kept in mind so that the sound matches the general vibe at your location. For example, if you own a spa, you might avoid selecting a “rugged” or “expressive” sound.
