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's Audacity 2.4.2 - 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.

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 1.1.3 - 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
  • lossless audio format
  • very high quality
  • open source format
WAV files
  • lossless format
  • very large file size
  • lossy format
  • similar size as MP3, but highr quality
  • Apple Lossless Audio Codec
  • not too popular outside the Apple ecosystem
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 wek 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
  • YouTube Audio Library - a lot of free songs and sound effects for videos that you monetize on YouTube

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.
