Hello all!

Anyone have any recommendations for where to host sound files online? I usually have my files in .wav format directly from my H2 ZOOM.

Preferably, I'm hoping to have a link where folks can click a link, and the audio file will come right up...

Box.net is the host of choice for many here. I like it. No direct linking, but it's friendly and popup and ad free.

Check out soundcloud http://soundcloud.com/

I've been noticing it popping up lately in various music forums that I follow, and I'm really impressed with it.

Hehehe... I'm all for style points, but on public forums I usually leave url's as-is so people can see what they're clicking. :poke:

I'll have to see if I can convert my clips to MP3 on the H2, it takes over a minute to download a 60 second .wav file. :sleep:

Sorry for bouncing this thread around. It does feel like it belongs more in Forum Support than Trad Tech. - Mod.

Can you give us a sample link to a music file?

back when I started not so much,
now there are several posters that I'll check the link before I click.

I found a free .wav to MP3 converter here: http://www.nch.com.au/switch/index.html

It made an MP3 file 1/10 the size of the original .wav file. :boggle:

TEST #2

<Uploading an MP3 file also enables you to play the file directly, instead of downloading!!!>

Thanks, Denny. It looks OK, music-specific.

Doesn't the Windows player convert to mp3?

There's always LAME ... which at least used to be the freeware standard. And lots of freeware wrappers for it, like Bonk.

Another test, this time with a whistle...

Slow Low Improv
http://soundcloud.com/clarinetcat/slow-low-improv


I really like the WavePad Sound Editor that same with my wav/MP3 converter from that NCH Software link I provided above... I can edit the file, fade in, fade out, trim, add effects like reverb, compression, gate, equalizer, etc etc etc

I highly recommend taking at look at it. :thumbsup:

<Did I mention it was FREE?!?!?>
