Pete S

Previously Undiscovered Version

Recommended Posts

Pete that Smithster remix you uploaded the other day was a Wave file and they tend to be on the big side perhaps you need to convert them to MP3's or something whistling.gif

I converted it to an RM file, it's pretty tiny really - the mp3 is 12.9mb, any idea how I get it smaller? Converting it to real audio changed it to 2.1mb but it says I can't upload that sort of file???

We upload Real Media files all the time are you sure it's not a RAM file or another derivative? MP3's are usually fine too try it again but set a smaller bit rate 12.9 Mb is a massive MP3 what is it 45 minutes long whistling.gif

This is weird, it won't let me attach it to a PM for you and there doesn't seem to be an option to add it to an email via the site Mike...

just giving it a go

seems to have worked

changed ext name from .ra to .rm before uploading and seems all ok

there is a tech reason but involves such things as mime types

Basically what it is, it's the original version by Bobby Treetop, I speeded the vocal up but kept the backing track at the same speed as the oriignal...this can bring about some really interesting results, if nobody minds I'll send a few up, this isn't a serious attempt to make new versions or anything it's just a laugh....done a nice midtempo version of Rita & The Tiaras, a slowed down version of She Tried To Kiss Me and a few more

Have to say Pete, very passable!!

Actually, I was expecting vocals a la Pinky and Perky before I heard it, and reading the description!! Sounds like you've slowed down the backing track - am I right?

This is doing my head in. I make the mp3, I convert to ra, then try to send that up, says not acceptable, so change the name to .rm, says that is not acceptable, so change it to wav, and so on...
