After almost 3 years of development, RockRaptor will shut down its website on the 20th of January 2018.
RockRaptor is a platform for listening to other music streaming platforms, launched in may 2015. It indexes several legal music streaming services, such as YouTube and SoundCloud. It then allows playing those indexed songs inside RockRaptor, as well as organising music in playlists. The idea of the platform was to have a more centralised listening experience, since not all music is available on every platform.
However, due to recent evolutions in the music streaming business, we decided to put a halt to the current project implementation. Another reason is that we decided that it’s current implementation is no longer future proof. Starting 20th of January, the website will go offline. We advise all users to backup their playlists before that date. In the future, the project might re-appear under a new platform, but we cannot make any promises right now.
We would like thank all the users of RockRaptor, along with the supporters, testers, artists and all the friends that helped to make the platform become what it is today. It has been a privilege to get to know so many of you and to listen to some great music together.
