Hi Folks.

I want to post a short user track to the forum... I zipped UserTrack folder, it is 35megs...
Forum does not accept zips. What (service) should I use to upload and post?

Thank you.

Can you use a DropBox account (or similar) and then include the link to the file in your post?

Go to soundcloud and you can set up several accounts or just use one. Post it there as an MP3 and post the link to the page here and you're good.

Drop Box also works well for this and it's easy to edit and delete as needed. You can also share the folder in Dropbox with collaborators.

If you are posting to SoundCloud do so as a .wav, flac or other lossless format at 48k 16 bit. That is the best format for SoundCloud upload. See the SoundCloud site.

Ensure you loudness is correct. About -9 to -13 LUFS. That way people can get the best listening and/or download. Make the peak less than -1 dB to ensure no clipping when Soundcloud do their conversion.

Yet another option is to create a new (free) gmail account and open a new (free) dropBox account with that.
Or open a free Outlook account and do the same with the free OneDrive.

Lots of options available.

The point is to get the content hosted somewhere other than PGMusic. Then you can link to it there.

It's a shame PG could not host UserTracks as there are too many dead (dropbox) links in the UserTrack forum and this way all the links are in one place permanently.
They should be able to increase the upload size and add zip-rar-7zip option just in the UserTrack forum.
There are UserTracks hosted here https://www.realband.org/usertracks.html but they won't be there permanently.

Yeah, vetting these and providing hosting space would seem appropriate. I agree with Pipeline in that regard.
I was just suggesting alternative ways to 'get er done'.
Same with some of the old BB song collections that have been shared; they are a treasure trove PGMusic could easily harness.
Or at the very least archive/store.

Definitely a great idea if this was possible to achieve.

I didn't read all the replies but the sort answer is you DON"T upload your tracks to the forum. You upload a link to the track that is stored elsewhere.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?
