Can't upload a remix of my own acapella

permalink   Mon, Mar 18, 2013 @ 8:42 AM
I am having trouble uploading a remix.

I already submitted this acapella:

My acapella group went into the studio and recorded themselves on top of it, and I mixed it. I am trying to submit this as a remix (although I won’t be able to “publish” for a while), but on the remix submission form

when I attempt to search for either “aliteralmind” (artist) or “parting glass” (title or full search), I get “Sorry, no sources match…”. But if search for ANOTHER ccmixter’s username or the name of a song someone ELSE submitted, then I do get results.

What am I missing here? Thank you for helping me.

You can´t upload a remix with yourself as the source (pella etc.).

I am afraid you must upload it as a new acapella and add the additional tracks/vocals!

Looks like these are Da Rules!
Keen for your new material!

I understand. Thanks!

To the admins: Please consider a “you cannot remix your own acapellas—you must submit this as a NEW acapella” warning on the submit-remix page. It would be helpful to see that.
