Tidal is an online music streaming platform. It combines both lossless audio and high definition music videos with complete content and special features on music. Tidal is available in over 40 countries.
Therefore, songs on this music platform are more than 46 million and over 190,000 high-quality videos. That offers passionate music fans both a premium and high fidelity CD sound quality with high intent video, and good expertly content.
Furthermore, Jay-Z is the current owner of tidal. And also, lots of other successful music artists. This makes it the first streaming service in the world that has an artist as its owner. Therefore, the concept of an artist-owning a streaming platform, is as to “restore the value to music. Which is by establishing a service that an artist can control.
During the previously press conference, Jay-Z himself, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Jack White, Daft Punk. Also, Madonna, Alicia Keys, Arcade Fire, Usher, Calvin Harris, Chris Martin, deadmau5, J. Cole, and Jason Aldean were present when the announce an introduction to the stage as “the grand owners of TIDAL”.
How Tidal works
Merely looking at it, Tidal.com really looks like Spotify. There is a perfect Chrome-based web player and a desktop player for PCs as well as excellent iOS and Android apps. Therefore, this platform offers accurate playlist functionality.
Also, it offers sharing of music and as well as offline song listening. Furthermore, the library is also off to a good start. This is because it is having more than 25 million tracks. We normally notice some floss in Tidal’s library when it was first reviewed. But these days things are really looking healthier.
Tidal really has some difference from its other rivals. Because, instead of it serving up only compressed music formats like MP3 and OGG, as Spotify does, Google Play Music and most of the other music streaming services. Tidal provides music at CD quality. It streams music in form of 16bit, 44.1 kHz FLAC files with a bitrate of 1411kbps and it’s absolutely brilliant.
Tidal is more than a normal FLAC streaming service. Though, it’s style to be the ultimate music resource for fans of hi-fidelity music, providing playlists. Also, organizing recommendations by expert music journalists, not to mention 75,000 music videos.
Tidal Music Library
The music platform went live in the UK back in October 2014. This is with approximately 25 million tracks in its library and that was really a good start. Then, the CD collection and Spotify account were used to guide our search for all the music we consider ours.
When users search for anything it is always available. But also it wasn’t hard to find some exclusion. These days though, the Tidal catalog is more complete for all genres of music such as
- Hip pop
- Country music
- Gospel Hits
- Inspiratonal and many more.
For example, the favorite bands, Wolf Parade, was absent at the launch of the service but it is now fully available. The Strokes were missing last year. Also, all their albums now have good accountability.
Folk-rock superband Bright Eyes is represented by two albums. Instead of the full roster and there are also plenty of examples of bands and labels that are yet to be signed up. Finally, work is progressing though there some painstaking sign-up process back in the days.
