Do you have Audacity? If not, it's free and it does metadata tags pretty well. I think. If I understand correctly. I'm not good with terminology. But when I use Audacity to export an mp3 file, it automatically pops up a window asking for a variety of information that subsequently shows up when I'm playing the file. And you can save time by entering info that stays the same for each song (like date, album title) and save it, then enter the rest of the information for each song as needed.

It'd be good to have you on the album Paulski, you're a favourite of mine.
 I hope you've already sent something in.

A physical cd would be good. If we could keep the entries under 17 we could have a cover with snapshots of the contributors.

I'm happy to pay ten quid for a physical copy.
I think putting playing sequence up for a vote is a very bad idea, we'd get lost in details and unnecessary disputes.
If Pompey is happy to take these final decisions then he should do it.

G'day all.
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

And there you have it.

Dammit, missed this thread too (no excuses), that’s life. Will be great though and I’ll be wanting one!

More than happy to do this, otherwise we'll get bogged down. I'll burn a CD today so I can listen in the car for a few days and then propose a running order - Unless anybody violently disagrees  :)

I would love a physical CD and of course happy to contribute my share of the costs. My track has been mastered, but I could supply raw mix as I am sure Boydie could improve it. Whatever is easiest, don't want to create any unnecessary work. I think the important things is to try to achieve consistency of levels, dynamics and so on throughout the album if that's possible.

Totally agree Bill. I'm sure Boydie will do the biz  :)

I've just set up a new Bandcamp account and will upload all of the tracks for preview at some stage. Obviously I don't want to publish anything yet but I wanted to see if everybody could access the page with a test track before I go any further.

Can you guys access this page and play the track ?????

Cheers

@Bill Saunders I am more than happy to master the track for the album and then at the very least you will have to mastered versions to choose from

Mastering of my track would be much appreciated.

Is it possible to host an image file or something of that sorts for download so you can burn your own CD?

Well I'm tickled PINK I was allowed to join late - whew.
Good idea re mastering to get the levels the same - I had that challenge on the Christmas compilation.
I've sent in my raw mix - let me know if I can help in any way (inc. $$)

Just to say, @Boydie has now mastered my track, and I am absolutely thrilled with what he has done. I honestly thought my attempt had been pretty good, but he has taken it to another level entirely.

It would be great to have Boydie master every track on the album, to showcase it to the highest possible standard.
