Hmm should not be a problem... If it's really not possible, send me a PM with a link so I can hear your mix.

RE: Perpetual Escape Mix Competition!
I'm getting error when uploading my mix - its 40 MB file encoded at 320KB/s. Don't really want to downgrade to 256/192

"Can not upload file - Too large for php post_max_size directive. Please press the back button."

@ Mike Senior - Is there a file size limit??

I'll keep trying as there are a few mixes already posted

Be fierce in your encouragement, kind in your criticism and try and remember that the art of a good critique is not to make someone else's mix sound like yours...but to help the mixer realize their own vision.

Hi HbGuitar,

Yes, I'm afraid it's a hardcoded limit of the forum software, but I sugsest some workarounds here:

Thanks for the heads-up!
