REGISTRATION?

TIP: You can also upload your audio or music file to YouTube. You just need to add a background image. Use your favourite editor, add one image (or more if you want), export as a video and that's it. You can start uploading.

Media Player Classic
Which player do you use?

I use Media Player Classic. It's a full featured player, that has a simple interface (very similar to the old Windows Media Player) and can play everything.

Recommended audio editor?

For me it used to be Audacity 3.1.2 - it's an open source multi-track audio editor and recorder. You can change playback speed and bitrate. Also great as trimmer if you need just cut file or if you need to compress it.

But after the project ownership changed in 2021 (plans for telemetry introduced, than abandoned, but the controversy continues) I was searching for an Audacity alternative. And there are several options:

  • Tenacity - open source fork of Audacity
  • Dark Audacity - another Audacity fork with a darker more modern theme and a few small tweaks
  • OcenAudio - easy to use, but still powerfull
Audacity editor

If you have never used any editor before, don't worry, it's easy to use. Available for Windows, Linux and Mac.

Audio converter

Not all services support all file types. If you need to convert your audio file, use fre:ac 1.1.5 - an open source tool for converting between MP3, MP4/M4A, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, WAV and Bonk file format. Fast, as it has multi-core optimized encoder. Also great for ripping your CDs.

The best audio formats / audio codec ?
MP3 files
  • the most common audio format, if you convert your music to MP3, it'll be accepted pretty much everywhere
  • lossy audio compression
  • relatively larger file size when compred with modern formats
FLAC
  • lossless audio format
  • very high quality
  • open source format
WAV files
  • lossless format
  • very large file size
AAC
  • lossy format
  • similar size as MP3, but highr quality
ALAC
  • Apple Lossless Audio Codec
  • not too popular outside the Apple ecosystem
Microphone
Basic audio recording tips
  • Keep the microphone close to the source
  • Use a microphone pop screen (you can make your own very cheap)
  • Avoid ambient noice (close the doors and windows)
Sounds, music loops:
  • SampleFocus - each weak you'll get 10 free credits for downloading, get more credits for uploading
  • SampleSwap - free loops and audio samples for electronic tunes
  • Looperman - royalty free loops, samples and sounds
  • Soundpacks - download free sample packs
  • Adam Vitovsky - free songs for personal, noncommercial & commercial purposes
  • PacDV - free of charge tracks for your video, film, audio and multimedia productions, link back required

If you offer music files, sounds, please let me know and I'll add you to the list. Thanks!

Streaming platforms, listen music on your phone or computer:
  • Spotify - one of the oldest
  • YoutubeMusic
  • Deezer - paid accounts offer better quality (FLAC - 1411 kb/s), the free account is limited to only MP3 - 128kb/s

All are ad supported and usually there is a limit of how many songs you can skip every hour (often it's 6 songs every hour).

Interesting audio tools
  • Labchirp 1.60 - easy to use program for creating sound effects for games, music and videos.
