After FINALLY getting the files into .wav format, I’ve gotta’ figure out how to make this available for everyone else! Well, it seems there’s a perfect site available out there to host my wave files and make ’em available for everyone else to download! EVEN BETTER, it’s got a funky conversion thingie wherein, they’ll take the file you upload to ’em and make it available in a few other formats.
The archive is all about free access to information, so you should submit file formats that are easily downloadable and/or streamable for other site patrons. We prefer that you submit the highest quality file that you have available, and then we will attempt to create smaller file sizes and formats automatically with our deriver program. We recommend that you do not attempt to do any special encoding of your files – the more settings you mess around with, the less likely our deriver code will be able to process the file.If you are submitting a Live Music Archive item, please only submit Flac or Shorten files. Even for non-LMA items, these are the best formats to use.Whatever format you choose, please upload each file to your item individually (you can submit multiple files per item), in a non-compressed format. Uploading content in a .zip or .rar file makes your item unstreamable and significantly less accessible to others. If you upload .zip, .rar, non-audio formats (like .exe), or password-protected files, they may be removed by our moderators. The table below describes what file formats we will attempt to derive depending on what type of file you submit.
Since I’m submitting a wave, we’ll effectively have access to Flac, MP3-256, MP3-VBR, MP3-128, Ogg Vorbis, and MP3-64 versions. All without any effort besides submitting the original wave! The real beauty is that all the different versions will be hosted on archive.org and available to anyone who wants it! 🙂
