Help! I need more promos!

hey everybody! first, i want to thank those that have taken the time to record one of these and submitted it to the site. they are really useful and are for a good cause (helping to promote your brothers and sisters on the site).

I’m back begging for more because i’ve pretty much tapped out everything submitted for the cool music show. and the cool music archive. the way i have the archive playlist set up, I’ve eliminated all my voiceovers but i’ve separated each show with a radio promo. problem is i can only use each promo once per playlist and i’m quickly running out of promos to separate the shows in the archive.

so i’d love it if anyone that hasn’t submitted one yet, and felt so inclined, might be kind enough to record a short promo for ccmixter radio.

ok, but what what do I do?
record yourself and submit it to this link if it’s under 10 seconds.

submit it here if it’s more than 10 seconds.

please try to keep them short. 10 seconds is great. under 20 please. remember, it’s being used to promote the site between songs.

also, if you want to hear what others have done, you can check them all out here.

thanks in advance!

That depends on the language, I guess…;-)

My daugther uploaded one, perhaps in the incorrect place, pardon.

Just uploaded a promo for you. Hope it works. If you prefer just the voice sans music, let me know, and I can upload that as well.

cool. did you upload 2 versions? i saw 2 there and they seem to be the same. thanks!

Yep —two versions — both with Briareus and both 22 sec. Different text and delivery between the two. Gurdonark is working on one with me as well. So that shall be forthcoming.

I just uploaded a promo mixed up by GurdonArk. I don’t mean to overwhelm you with promos — just a bit o’ variety so you can pick and choose!

thanks again you guys! i’ll use them all multiple times i’m sure.

I got ahold of one of sackjo’s promos before I read this page. I was more messing around then anything else. Im sure you can cut the first part of it and use it but I will be going back and trying to make an actual promo out of someone or *gasp* I might use my own voice for something. BTW I am following your CCMP3 blog daily.

cool, thanks!

actually, i’d prefer it if you submit a promo yourself (rather than me cut something)since that way you get attributed for it anytime i use it.

and thanks for checking out Free CCMP3!

I added one. Its amazing how quick ten seconds can pass. )

thanks AB. yeah, sometimes i think it’s harder to do something really short than the typical 2 minute 50 seconds. :)

Submitted a promo. Here.

You say to submit longer promos as a “sample”, instead of as a “promo”, but the

page just says “submit a promo”, regardless the length. Wasn’t sure what trumps what.

I submitted it as a sample.

:’ )

le lingue straniere *vanno* benissimo (italians usually say like that) :-)

I’m signin in, even if I don’t know when, but I’m going to make a promo really soon!
