The past couple of months haven’t been particularly good ones for scene mp3 torrent trackers. We saw the demise of one of the largest torrent sites catering to this niche, VIPMusic, much to the disappointment of its loyal fan base. This was soon followed by extended downtime at MP3Scene, a private MP3 tracker that showed a lot of promise as a potential replacement to SceneSound. If you are a fan of scene released music albums, here’s some good news for a change; TuneSound is a brand new torrent site that aims to fill the gap left behind by the likes of VIPMusic, SceneSound and MP3Scene. It another site that’s based on the SoftMP3 source code. While TS has got off to a great start so far, it remains to be seen if this tracker can break the curse which seem to affect the SoftMP3 clones that launched in recent times. If you are interested in joining, signups are currently open.
Although it’s only been online for several days, TuneSound is off to a flying start. The site has already amassed over 550 torrents and managed to recruit 575+ members. These statistics are only poised to go up as news of the tracker spreads around the BitTorrent community. TS seems to have Swedish origins but thankfully for non Swedish members, the interface language supports 6 additional languages including English.
As we mentioned earlier, TuneSound is built on the same source as SoftMP3. It basically has the same look and feel of SoftMP3 and retains hallmark features such as the unique start page, separate browse pages each for new releases, archived releases, requests and lossless music, along with a few customizations here and there. As for the content, TS is a torrent tracker specializing in scene released MP3 music albums. Indexed music is organized into 40+ different genres including Rock, Pop, Indie, Punk, Jazz and more. In addition to MP3 files which form the majority of torrent index, this site tracks some MDVDR and Lossless music files as well.
Registrations for TuneSound are currently open. Although there is no max user limit set currently, TS is expected to go invite only after the initial open registration period which may only last 1-2 weeks. If you love scene music, feel free to check this site out.
