Uploading Audio Files
To avoid lots of dead links, it is highly recommended that you upload audio files of you mixes/masters directly to the Discussion Zone site as MP3, M4A, OGG, or OPUS files (for mixes) or as WAV, AIFF, or FLAC files (for masters). 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 audio 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. Do doublecheck this, though, after you've posted, just to be sure your mix file has indeed uploaded correctly!

For your information:
  • Posting your mix/master to this site does not mean I own it. 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.
  • To avoid overwhelmingly large server storage demands, there are no plans to support WAV/AIFF/FLAC formats for mix files -- a 320kbps MP3/M4A/OGG file should be more than adequate for discussion purposes unless you're already mixing like Bob Clearmountain! :)
  • The total upload space per user should (in theory) be unlimited, but I've set an individual filesize limit of 40MB for each MP3, M4A, and OGG mix file, and for each WAV, AIFF, and FLAC master file I've increased that to 100MB.
