This sub-forum is for discussions about the music of Crete and Greece. You may post links to radio stations, artists' websites, videoclips and samples of mp3 songs.

We do not encourage music piracy and we urge all our members to respect copyrights, therefore you can not link to high quality full mp3s, but you are allowed to post links to sample mp3s. All samples should be 1-2 minutes parts of the original songs and the sound quality should not exceed 48kbits.


How to edit an mp3

You may use a free sound editor like Audacity. The program is easy to use and you can create samples from your mp3s. Download it from here: http://audacity.sour...ownload/windows . You will also need the LAME MP3 encoder , which allows Audacity to export MP3 files. You don't need to install the Lame MP3 encoder, just download it and then save the file lame_enc.dll anywhere on your computer.


How to adjust the sound quality of your mp3 samples

Open Audacity and then select EDIT --> PREFERENCES. In the following screen, choose Bit rate: 48 and then click OK:

Where to upload your sample mp3s and videoclips

Use a free file hosting service like www.rapidshare.com. It is free to upload your files to it and when the upload will be completed, you will receive the link to post in the forum. All files which are uploaded to Rapidshare are deleted after 45 days, if they are not accessed anymore (not downloaded).
