Wave converter

Hey guys,

Yesterday I've wanted to upload a new wave track to soundcloud, but the size was over 50MB so I couldn't.

What program do you guys use to convert? and to convert to what flac, mp3 .... ?

Thx

DAW or wave editor of choice. Updated codecs.

Re: Wave converter

If you want to put finished wav files up, use bandcamp instead of soundcloud. I know, it doesnt have groups and massive amounts of spammy mashups hey follow me!!! but it's what I use for finished stuff.

Lame mp3 codec, like lebeux say.

Yeah it's really sad to work your ass on a track to finnaly ruin everything ... That's why I was asking.

But I guess soundcloud is the most popular, it's not really like you have a choice if you want exposure...

Cheers

Re: Wave converter

but why couldn't you upload it because of file size? they only have a restriction on totalled time not total files size..

Well I'm pretty sure It's limited to 50MB, I had a popup saying my file was too big.

Can't find this in soundcloud help right now though I'll make a prtscn once I'm home.

But look what I found ...

" Talking about distorsion on an uploaded track.... as we transcode all tracks to 128 kbps mp3 for streaming playback. Uploading a lossless or high-quality lossy file will usually reduce these to a minimum, but unfortunately there's not much we can do for the handful of individual tracks that are still affected."

I didn't knew that, 'though it's logic for streatming, 128 kbps is super lame.

Re: Wave converter

hmmm, i've uploaded many DJ sets to my soundcloud all in 320kbps (for those that want to download) this means files sizes are in excess usually of 200Mb so i can't see why you're having that problem. have you tried to log out clear cache and try again?

Can't back up my words right now as I'm at the office ... but I tried to upload a 65 MB wav and couldn't coz file size was over 50MB.

Maybe size of waves only are limited?, maybe you have a special account?, maybe I was dreamed this or was too high ...

I'll figure this out and come back later, thx for the input.

Re: Wave converter

If you're still looking for software to convert wav to mp3 - try Audacity

Another point: If you're making your tracks available for download - the WAV won't contain any info (like the ID3 tag on mp3's). So if you want information in the song - it might be better to encode a high-bitrate mp3, or maybe even FLAC as I think you can embed information in it (not 100% sure about the FLAC thing right now).
