GUEST,CJB Cornucopia of 1960's Brit. Folk (112* d) RE: Cornucopia of 1960's Brit. Folk 28 Mar 17

Hi - it would be great to have ree-reel / cassette tapes uploaded here. The way to do it is:

1/ Send a zipped file to emailed to yourself. When this arrives copy the download link to a post here. It will be good for 7 days (as a blue clicky of course).

2/ Create a free account, then create a folder under 'MyFiles' say 'Folk Archive'. In this create other folders for the files you want to share. Then upload the files to these specific folders. Then share the links to the folder 'Folk Archive' or the specific folders here (as a blue clickies of course).

When digitising tapes don't forget to lift the volume - but avoid clipping. You might need to adjust the speed (and pitch) to match the original transmission. This is especially critical with cassette tapes - many recorders / players did not run true. Normalise the digital version. Then Save As FLAC, WAV or MP3 (320kbps).
