Listen to more than a small sample of the published music
Although you get a small 3 second taste of the published music it would be a lot better if you could listen to all of it or at least around 10 seconds
yes and scrubbing on a timeline perhaps even on the thumbnail
perhaps blend between 4 segments 0 20 60 80% for tracks longer than 20 seconds ?
I 110% back this. It's inconvenient to have to pull the music into your level to properly preview it to see if it works. It'd be nice if the sample played much longer
The problem the devs have with something like this is that the game plays back the music in real time; to get around that they'd have to code either a full fledged music player in the web browser or pre-render much more of the tune, and doing that would require phenomenal amounts of server space.
That said, previews of music within Dreams itself should really play much more than three seconds; the data is so small and fast to transfer as a result.
I would like to second this opinion. I was browsing some sounds earlier for use in a scene and had difficulty due to the shortness of the sample.

Thanks for your feedback.
There are lots of considerations for seemingly small things like this, and it is definitely something we will seek to improve in the future where possible.
