Subject: Tech: Parking WAV files for others
From: Les in Chorlton
Date: 02 Oct 10 - 01:24 PM

I have a small collection of WAV files of our band recorded on my Zoom H2. I would like to park them somewhere so that other members of the band can listen to them and probably down load them to scare children with or whatever.

Any advice?

Get a free Box.net account, upload your files there, and share by sending links to each file or to the folder they are in. If the people you want to share with each have their own accounts, you can make them collaborators and they will be notified automatically when a new file is uploaded.

I believe ImageShack will do the same for you but without the collaboration feature.

While the collaboration feature on Box.net can be very handy, both Box.net and ImageShack give you links for you to send without the recipients needing accounts.

Quick p.s.

ImageShack makes file public by default, but it's easy to make anything private. Box.net files are private by default.

I suggest you convert your WAV files to mp3 for uploading. I notice that if you use the free version of Box.net, there is a limit of 25MB per file. A WAV file is typically 10MB/min in size, so you can easily exceed your upload limit in a single file. A 128 bitrate mp3 is about 1MB/min so a significant saving, though there is a slight deterioration in quality. Obviously you should keep your original WAV files and not delete them.

ImageShack seems to be restricted to video/image files only. See their terms of service here

Another possibility is to upload to You Tube. (I have seen the occasional audio only file). You can restrict the files to your band members by setting them as "Unlisted" and send them a link or as "Private", in which case they have to be a You Tube subscriber and you have a limit of 25 people who can view your private files but Private files are more secure. I use "unlisted" for videos of my granddaughter so I can let my daughter and son-in-law see them.

Most of the people on melodeon.net use onmvoice.com for audio files. (that's when they don't use YouTube videos, which are a popular choice too).
Yes, much better to make them MP3s you don;'t need pristine WAV for your purpose and you'll save everybody a lot of bandwidth and time.

If it is going to be a permanent and frequent thing, and you really do need the full, uncompressed WAV quality, you could set up your own website, then give your fellow muso's a password to download the tracks in FTP protocol. I've done this with recording collaborations, assembling tracks in the UK which were recorded in Germany and the US.
Cheers

You don't have to force them to use FTP. It is easy to set private areas on a site, which can provide the usual browser interface, but just need a password to enter.

I use an iDisk. Of course you have to pay for it, but I think it's worth it ($100/year). 10 gig storage. My engineer was doing some mixing when I couldn't get to the studio, and he just put them up for me, and I got them down to burn to CD and listen.

Forgive me if I am missing something here Les, but there seems to be a simple solution. If the other band members are going to download them, then presumably they have broadband, so why not just convert them to MP3's and email them? or just pop them on a CD or memory stick and give it to them.

Thanks Ms / Mr Hound, that was where I started. We have haad 28 in the band and around 40 who play off and on so I was hoping to avoid CDs.

I always find, don't we all, that what ever decisions we make web-wise months later it seems to be overtaken by something else.

It is also a balance between what various systems will do and how accesible they are to uses.

Thanks Folks,

I have just re-read all the posts and visted the websites suggested and e-snips looks useful in that I think I can upload MS Word docs, pdfs, WAVs, MP3s and allow easy access to band members & friends.

Have I got that correct? Anyone spot any problems with:

esnips

Or a better suggestion

Jack Campin pointed out that he couldn't access esnips via a MAC so that might be a problem (though others have similar). I have over 2GB of music stored on it and have some things that have been viewed and downloaded several hundreds and so far have had few problems.

There is an answer on Yahoo answers but i don't know if it works

I can send some stuff by e-mail but their is a low limit to the size of attachments.

Websites have the advantage that we can display all that we have - dots, video, sound recordings, event details in one place.

Facebook, Myspace, e-mail all do something well but they don't do everything.

Thanks Nick

With yousendit you DON'T send the file as an attachment. You upload the file to yousendit and it emails a link to all to download (up to 100 downloads on the free version) which is tiny. And up to 100mb on the free one. It's a not bad back up.

Much like Adrive.com which does similar and offers 50GB of space...
