Raagamorph is a music-exclusive portal for the artists, performers and all kinds of music & performance industry professionals to network and market their music, products and services to their audiences, fans and customers.
Raagamorph, being a music exclusive portal, anybody can discover, connect, network, promote, market, stream and experience music, artists, bands, events, performances and other music related products and services from a global standpoint.
Artists, Bands, Producers, Engineers, Instrument & equipment makers, Tech innovators, Managers, Event organisers, Promoters, Venues and just about anybody that actively create music or music related products, offer services or facilitate activities like music production, performance, artist/band management, live sound, marketing, etc.

Simply put, a professional is a user who creates music or music related products and offers their products or services for other members for a price. Whereas a consumer is a member who does not offer any music, product or services for a price, but can avail the same that has been offered by other professionals.

Choosing your profile while signing up as ‘Explore’ if you are a consumer or any of the other profile types that suit your work-type in the industry. This decides whether you want to be a consumer member or a professional member on the portal.

No, you cannot. You can choose your profile type only once while signing-up. There is no way you can change your primary role (profile type) after the completion of the signup process. We suggest you decide about choosing your profile type well before signing-up.

You may choose to have a secondary role after signing up, but your entire Raagamorph experience depends on what profile type you choose (according to the role you play in the industry) when you sign-up.

Users of the ‘Explorer’ profile type can, among other benefits, discover new mucic, artists, bands, events based on preferred styles, location, explore the world of music, post videos, posts, network, interact with artists, bands and professionals, listen to streaming music, create and share playlists, follow your favourite artists, bands, events and a lot more.
Users with any of the professional profile types can offer their music, products and/or services on their profile pages for other members of any profile type to avail of. They can, among other benefits, build their audience globally, reach out to them directly and interact with them directly, promote their products in exquisite detail, create events and collaborate with other professionals for events and other projects.
Yes, you have all the privileges of a consumer member in terms of consumer features and activities. However, there will be a difference in subscription charges only for the professional features, but not on the general features.
There are are seven different professional profile types. All of the types are broadly based on different categories of professionals that make up the music and performance industry. While most of the features are similar across the platform, each profile types has an exclusive set of tools and options for displaying and offering their products and/or services. Below are a few examples of the tools for each professional type
All the special tools are exclusive for the specific profile type and the same tools will not be available for a different profile type.
Subscription services are those that require a payment to be made in order to use the feature, like location based services or unlimited streaming, etc. All services are free of charges for now as we are still in the launch and testing phase and subscription services will be eventually introduced across the platform for all user types.

The layout of Raagamorph is very simple and divided into 4 main sections. Home, Profile, Console and Community.
All data on Raagamorph is user data and It is still in phase 1 of launch. You won’t see any data on it until the users start putting in some posts, music or videos. Building your profile with data is super simple and maybe you should start with it right away.
When you login for the first time, You will be taken to the ‘Console’ page where you setup, edit and manage your profile from. You can start filling up your details from the ‘Person details’ section. It takes less than a minute to completely set up your profile.

Time required: about 1 minute.

Head over to the 'Console' section.

Person details: Section 1

The first part of the first section, ‘Person details’ consists of the basic details like the name, location and birth date.

All fields, except the middle name in this part are essential*

Date of birth is essential to ascertain that the user is above the age of 14 and for certain other statistics

The location data is essential for search functions and location based content delivery. Start entering your location in the first field and select the correct location from the dropdown list.

Click or tap the ‘Update details’ button below to update the details.

*Please note that none of the details provided in this section will be publicly accessible anywhere across the platform.

Person details: Section 2:

Ensure that you have completed the first section before entering the second section.

Click or tap the button ‘Edit Profile’ at the bottom of the second section of the Person details. This opens up the profile editor screen where you can edit the rest of the details. These include:

  • Username: will be used for login purposes in the future.
  • Display name: The name that will be displayed on your profile and with which you will be referred to as publicly.
  • Secondary role: Another role association for the user. This helps better content delivery, search results and adds to a better overall experience.
  • Musical styles: Three basic musical styles you mainly associate yourself with. This plays a major role in the content that gets delivered to your homepage. There are only a few styles to choose from and more will be added in the future.
  • Website: If you have a personal or product website that you would like to be displayed on your profile.
  • Company: If you are a part of or you have a company.

Once inside the Pro-section, you can upload a banner, give a title to your profile, a tagline and a short description. This is an exclusive section for the professional users.

Yes. Except the username, you can change any part or all of your profile data at a later time. You may need to change your location data if you relocate to a different city.
These are musical styles that you also listen to or like to follow, besides the primary styles of music that you choose in section 2. Checking those that you like will further help the filter the content delivered to you. Please check those that you really like to avoid getting unnecessary content delivered to your homepage.

Secondary role is associated with the professional profile users and more often than not, everyone ends up playing more than one roles at work and eventually build a good deal of skills in different roles as well.

It is only logical to put oneself in more than one role so that the opportunities and profile visibility becomes a little broader.

So choose the most appropriate role as the secondary role so that you get seen by the right people looking for you. You can always keep it empty, or use explorer or change it at a later point if you think what you have chosen is not working out or you deal with more than two roles or any other reason.

However, we strongly recommend sticking to two roles and not changing them frequently for better consistency in search results where you might show up as well as the content delivered to you.

Pinboard is a feature that does exactly what it says. Whatever you type in there stays there until you edit or delete it. It acts as a Pinboard for all your thoughts, lyrics, chores, reminders, etc

You can start composing a post and leave it as it is and use it in a post as the post content when you want to post it. It automatically appears in the post content area. Deleting it from the post content area doesn't erase it from the Pinboard and you can still access it from the Pinboard. Nice isn't it?

Currently, you can post either music with text under 'music' or text with/without image under 'shout'. Click the appropriate button on top of the homepage and add the content and click 'Post'.

All music content comes under 'Music' and 'Stream' whereas text and image content can be found only under 'Stream'.

Any text in the 'Pinboard' will appear as a message. It can either be posted as it is or you can choose to write something else. The data on the 'Pinboard' will not be modified by any action on the 'Post' popup.
