Uploading MP3/M4A Mix Files
To avoid lots of dead links, it is highly recommended that you upload mixes directly to the Discussion Zone site as MP3 or M4A files. Here's how:
  1. When creating a new thread/reply, scroll down to the 'Attachments' section and click the 'Choose File' button.
  2. Use the pop-up dialogue window to select the appropriate MP3 or M4A file on your own computer.
  3. Click the 'Add Attachment' button to upload the file to the Discussion Zone site. (Wait for the upload to complete before editing your post any further, otherwise you may lose some of your changes.)
And that's all. Once you post the thread/reply, the attached audio file will be instantly playable in-line in most browsers, and there'll also be a separate download link for it.

For your information:
  • Posting your mix to this site does not mean I own your mix. I don't. If you want to delete an uploaded attachment at any time, you can do so via your user control panel's 'Manage Attachments' area. If you email me to let me know, then I can also remove any related thread to avoid other users seeing a dead attachment link.
  • There are no plans to support WAV/AIF formats -- a 320kbps MP3/M4A file should be more than adequate for discussion purposes unless you're already mixing like Bob Clearmountain. If you insist on linking to a WAV/AIFF, then you're likely to get more feedback if you also attach an MP3/M4A to the post as well.
  • If you don't already have software to convert WAV/AIF to MP3, then try Wimpy Audio Encoder (Windows) or LameBrain (Mac).
  • The total upload space per user should (in theory) be unlimited, but the MyBB forum software used for this site doesn't support individual uploads of larger than 40MB in size. If you want to upload an MP3 bigger than that, then my main question is 'why the hell are you posting a 20-minute-long mix at 320kbps?!'
