Help us to identify your tune
1. If you can't provide a clip, try and describe as much about the tune as you can.
Male / Female singer / Style of Music / Year etc. Even which D.J played it and what tape you heard it on can help.
2. If you upload a clip, try and keep it at a low bitrate, (32kbps to 56kbps is suitable) and the sample about a minute long. This makes it easier and quicker to download for peeps to listen to it. Also try and include the main riff/vocal or chorus in the sample, this in turn can help jog the person's memory into identifying your tune. (Programs like Sound Forge and Cool Edit can lower the quality of your tune sample)
3. If you are unable to lower the quality/bitrate of the tune you want identifying, keep your sample short, but again try and include the main riff/vocal or chorus to help the i.d'er.
You find some people will ignore samples that take a while to download, because of the quality being high and the sample length too long. So keep it short if you are to use high quality samples.
4. If posting samples on a thread, keep to a maximum of 5 clips/samples/rips per thread
, this makes it easier for the person to identify which samples have been correctly i.d'ed and prevent the thread becoming a jumbled up mess.
5. If posting a DISCOGS link to the correctly identified tune, please include the 'artist and title' in the post. This will make it easier to search for later on, if need be.
6. Alot of hard work goes into trying to identify your tune, people do actually go out of there way on here to identify your tune and help sort you out with it.
So please, say thanks to the person who i.d's your tune.
