So you want to submit a song to the podcast crew? Here are the rules and some pointers to help get you closer to stumping everyone:
email@example.com@gmail.com is the place to send the submissions.
- mp3's and wav's can be acceptable. Wav's are bigger and sometimes a little harder to get off of Gmail (if there are issues on Gmail's end) but I can still work with them. If you do end up sending in a different sort of file, make sure to send directions as to how I can open it with Winamp. I'm not always computer savvy.
- Major restrictions:
- Songs should be from a Nintendo System. Catalogue includes: Nes, Snes, N64, GameCube, Wii, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, DS, Virtual Boy AND games currently on the Virtual Console. If they have only been announced or rumored to come to the Virtual Console, they can not be used.
- no midi files
- no remixes of songs
- Send in as many songs as you want. All the songs get saved in an archive I have set-up. If you send in more than one song from the same game, I won't play them together on the same podcast unless there I see fit. It's nothing personal, just trying to fit in more people in the time we have to do it.
When sending the e-mail make sure these are somewhere in there:
- Screen name you want to be credited as.
- The name of the game the song came from.
- The platform it was released on.
- The song file. (this can be sent as an attachment or a link to a site for me to download. If you want to send in a bunch of songs at once, the best way may be to archive them and send them as a bundle.
- As far as where to get songs, there are a lot of ways. There are a lot of sites to download files. Many people use Galbadia Hotel, just make sure you are not downloading or looking through the midi files.
Another thing that some people have done recently were output audio from their televisions to their comupters and record the music that way. People also take from actual game soundtrack discs. A lot of soundtrack compilations are available, and most of them are really worth the buy anyway. I don't think all emulators use the exact same music from the games, so I might have to not allow that. As time goes on, maybe that will be lifted.
All people who have submitted, please share the sites you use or your approach to the game section. And as time continues, I may change the rules.
Hope this all helps!
