Radio UBEE Entries How to:

Import notice: You will need your entry posted on the web and a good URL link to it. We are not accepting mp3 files they must be already on the internet.

If you already have a good working URL for your radio file – meaning you already have it stored on the web (somewhere like Soundcloud) and with that URL another person can go directly to and listen to your file, then go ahead and go straight to the UBEE Radio metro entry form, orNon-Metro Radio UBEE form

If not continue reading and follow the instructions.

Here are tips and instructions for using Soundcloud – (it’s basically Youtube for radio and sound). Do not try and include an mp3 file with your entry -- you must have it uploaded and on the web and use the link as your source. This makes the whole system run smoother, faster and easier for multiple judges to access all the UBEE entries.

How do I upload my sounds?

A single track upload via SoundCloud

1 Go and sign up at www.soundcloud.com (free and paid accounts are available)

2 Check your email and verify your account. Once you verify your email you are ready to go.

3 Go back to Soundcloud and make sure you are logged in to your account. Now you can start posting!

4 Click the Post button at the top of any page, or visit http://soundcloud.com/upload

Select the “choose files' button, which will enable you to the pick audio file from your computer you want to post to the cloud. (SoundCloud accepts the following formats: AIFF, WAVE, FLAC, ALAC, OGG, MP2, MP3 and ACC.)

5 When you’re uploading your track, SoundCloud will give you two options under the Privacy Settings; Go to Advanced Settings --Select ‘Public’ This makes it easy for judges on different computers -- to better find and listen to your UBEE entry!

While your sound is posting, you can enter its details and set permissions for downloads, widgets, and more. Once the sound is fully posted and transcoded, hit ‘save’ at the bottom of the page.

If you're experiencing problems with our main Flash-based uploader, please make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash installed. If you continue to have troubles, try our old-skool uploader.

And Voila! You have a nice clean URL to now use for your UBEE entry – Allowing the judges to easily listen in their browser to your work in high quality sound.

6 Be sure to copy the URL. See the “Get the link” copy everything in the box ie: https://soundcloud.com/dale-zeke/sets/ubee-test-mp3s – this is what you will use to enter as your “link “on your UBEE form! Make sure your URL doesn’t have # in it (see trouble shooting below).

This is the important part you must copy the exact URL and put that in your UBEE form! (We strongly recommended that you test your URL links – you can do this by cutting and pasting into a new window.) You want to make sure it the link goes to the right individual track especially if you have more than one track in your account.

Troubleshooting and helpful links:

My URL has a # in it, why's that?

This is a known issue which is happening in Internet Explorer 9.0. When using another browser or upgrading to Internet Explorer 10, you will be able to see the regular URL without the # in it. If you're unable to upgrade or use another browser, you could try out Chromeframe when using SoundCloud to avoid this from happening!
