  • Suggestions on where to post large music files?

    Guys,
    I've been wanting to post up some large files of KPM music that I've been working on with my Cool Edit Pro to give a bit of a sample of how they are turning out. They sound incredible and it's as if they've been on CD instead of vinyl all along. The files are MP3 Pro, 128 kbps, and range from 2000 to 3000 in size.

    I've been wanting to throw some of these up to let some of you guys listen to how they've been turning out; in another section here I've posted about wanting to do some trading to fill gaps in my KPM and Bruton collection. I'm kinda serious about collecting and I enjoy the music for what it is. I'm not a DJ in a club and I don't make re-mixes with them. I sometimes do use these as backgrounds in home videos and they really give that extra touch to it.

    I've had some contact with Sermad, LDJB, and some other guys on here about getting copies/clones/dubs, etc but that never really panned out; nothing's come of it. So I figured, let 'em HEAR what I've been doing, that these really sound decent and that I'm not just some dope out here blowing steam about wanting the music with nothing to offer. Been collecting library since 1990, fan of it for longer, and always looking to expand it. However I have more libraries on CD than on LP and I want to tip the scales. I've been communicating with a chap down there in Australia and we've been trading for a couple of years, but he doesn't have it all yet.

    These MP3s are pretty much "re-mastered", coming directly from the vinyl and have clicks/pops removed, dynamic range expanded, noise and hiss reduction, and some equalization to them. For some quick samples visit my home page at: http://home.att.net/~tbirddmnd/ and scroll down to the MP3s at the bottom. These came DIRECTLY off the vinyl and were run through Cool Edit Pro. The exception is the file seeking the ID of a track - it came from a cassette tape. These are 96 kbps - transferred through Real Player and not Cool Edit.

    Any thoughts as to where I can upload some more for your enjoyment AND discernment? I only have MP3 Pro at my disposal and 128 kbps is the lowest I can get them down to. When I burn them onto CD-R they are wave files at a full 1411 kbps. Trust me, I can put the sample audio on eBay vinyl library auctions to shame.

    My posts are in the Wants section, titled "Looking for CD-Rs/MDs of KPM and Bruton". I have a lot to clone in return so give a look. I've currently got about 40 KPM volumes left to "re-master" before I start on my Brutons.

    Thanks!

    Oh yes, that reminds me - sorry for not having got round to doing those minidiscs yet. I've got a bit of a backlog of things I have to do for people, but you're on my list!

        Mech 1,
        I checked out the "Airwolf" soundtrack, but this unknown track I seek is definitely a library track.

        Click on this link to hear what I've done to clean up "Leader of the Pack" from KPM 1136, although it's only at 96 kbps:
        http://members.tccoa.com/tbirddmnd/L...the%20Pack.mp3

        It was scratchy, noisy and kinda dull-sounding directly off the vinyl. It's not like that anymore.

        Here are 2 more files, both from KPM 1179, which I feel are some of my best work so far using Cool Edit Pro:

        "Night Drive": http://home.att.net/~tbirddelta/Nigh...-_KPM_1179.mp3

        "Thrilling Spectacle": http://home.att.net/~tbirddelta/Thrilling_Spectacle.mp3

          tbirddmnd - you can put them up on soundclick for free. soundclick.com also if you just want a few people to check it out you can use you send it and yousendit.com its also free but the links only have a limited amount of downloads. when it asks for an email i just put my own then pick the file and copy and paste the link. Also you can always upload them again with yousendit and make another link if needed.

            Thanks for the responses on where to post my files, I appreciate it and will look into it.

            In the meanwhile I've done some exploring at my AT&T servers and found out that I have access to 6 "sites" with them, each 10 MB in space. I just have to name them differently. The 2 KPM 1179 links above were posted on an alternately named page. I'll have to come up with more names to post other files for you folks to listen to.

            My goal was to catch the ears of collectors to see if they wanted to get in to trading recordings with me, and to see if I could fill the gaps in my collection. Being able to listen to the clarity of the library tracks I worked on was what I was after.

            I will be uploading more shortly!

            Soundhog: I'm a fan of VW buses/kombis, but I don't own one yet! There'a a 1979 VW bus that I've been wanting to buy though! It's on the east coast in Connecticut and when I buy it I have to get it shipped to Michigan. There's a GREAT VW site called The Samba: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/ and they have excellent forums at: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/  - also don't forget to check out their photo galleries. VW folks from all over the world unite there to discuss all things VW. I'm more of a Ford fan and I love my '97 Thunderbird Limited Edition (my "go-fast" car&#33, but I really would love to have that '79 bus. In fact I made a page about the bus here: http://www.geocities.com/tbirddelta/bus.html
            Give it a look!

            Thanks!

              ....as an bit of a Mini fan over the years (with the skinned knuckles from trying to service many an A series lump to prove it), I feel it my duty on behalf of my kin to say [cough cough]....

              Air cooled crap.

              There. No offence meant by the way. Just holding up my end for the greatest vehicle of the 20th Century (with maybe the Land Rover).

                I rode in my father-in-law's 1995 Brazilian-built Kombi/bus down in La Paz Bolivia, it was a fun ride and I've wanted one ever since then. However they stoppped making them for the USA in 1979. They're only being made in Sao Paulo Brazil right now for use there and the rest of South America. No one is making the old-style Beetle; Mexico stopped production 30 July 2003 with the last one destined for the VW Wolfsburg Museum, and the one before that went to Pope John Paul II!

                In any case, I still want that '79 VW Bus to ride around in when the weather is nice, it would not be my daily driver, and I would definitely listen to all my KPM and library music in it.

                Thanks for your reply back, Soundhog!
