uploading zip files for stems

permalink   Tue, Dec 7, 2021 @ 10:19 PM
Hello there,

I’ve been away for sometime, and posted a new remix. Now i tryed to upload the stems, but somewhere there goes something wrong i guess. I’ve tryed several times, but the stems are not online. Are there any new limitations to uploading these or other things i have got to take notice of?
Thanks in advantage when you can help me with this…

Hi Frank,

I would be happy to help you solve this problem.

If I understand correctly, you are trying to add the stems of a remix that has already been posted - I’m going to assume for the moment it’s Wide Awake.

Some possible reasons the stems aren’t uploading include: the size of the file and the file type.
Unless a file is less than 50 megs, it will not be accepted.
Also, if you try to upload a file type not recognized, it will not be accepted.

If that doesn’t solve the problem, I just need some information:

Are you uploading the stems as a separate upload apart from the original, or are you adding them to the original upload itself?

If you’re adding to an existing upload, what is the name/url of the upload? (There might be a glitch in the main server, so it is helpful to know which upload is having the problem).

What are the file types of the stems you are adding?

Thank you for your patience with this, we will do what we can to help you out.

Kind regards,

Hi Apoxode,

Indeed the zip packages are for Wide Awake.
Knowing there is a 50 mb limit solved the problem. I converted the files from wav to mp3 format and loaded them up in two zip packages.

Thanks for your reply.
