UMLive Reconceived

Today marks a day long in the making for Team UM as we roll out a completely reconceived and redesigned umlive.net.  In addition to the nightly, high-quality downloadable recordings that you’ve become accustomed to, you will now have the ability to stream the entire UMLive catalog: 955 shows and counting. Our desire to continue to bring fans the best possible experiences has led us to create the most comprehensive streaming and download site for a single artist.

I am extremely proud to finally get this out the door and into your hands. To say this has been long time coming is an understatement. It has been the product of many late nights between the great team at Nugs.net/Livedownloads.com and UM. We have been pounding on this new site for over two years, working through a lengthy list of obstacles, great and small. And it’s officially ready for you to kick the tires.

Version 0.1 (a barebones prototype)

We are incredibly pleased with the site despite despite the nagging feeling we could continue to make minor adjustments and improvements forever. In an effort to not let perfect be the enemy of the good, we’ve decided to roll out version 1.0 and let you tell us what YOU think. Who better to get user feedback from than those who will be using it most?

Our intent was always to launch with a completed mobile component but a myriad of factors have prevented that. Rather than continue to keep the completed desktop version from you, we’ve opted to unleash that component as we continue to build the mobile app. Rest assured knowing that mobile is of the highest priority to us and is currently in the works. In addition, we’ve already got new new features on deck so rest easy knowing that you’ve yet to ever witness our best.

We can’t wait to hear what you think and appreciate your feedback throughout the process. Please feel free to email any thoughts to us at umlive@umphreys.com or tweet feedback my way @soundcaresser.

The new umlive.net interface

P.S. The rhino logo in the upper left hand corner started out entirely as a joke but what can we say, it’s grown on us (for now).
