Google - DMusic -or- Soundclick -or- Yousendit -or- Putfile

Those are the only ones I can think of right now other than having your own site to upload to.

DMusic and Soundclick are used the most around here.

You would either need to download a .wav to mp3 converter (there are free ones out there) or you can download Audacity, which is a free recording program. Audacity, I believe, can "export" or "save as" in a mp3 format.

Also, depending on your pc, you might have a converter......try right clicking the .wav file and see if you have the option to convert file.

you know i might just try that smokingdog...im reading about it right now and it says i can mix voiceovers with background music, which is great for me because on certain songs i have a real hard time singing and strumming at the same time

You can start out with just a cheap $8 PC Mic and upgrade to a better Mic and small mixer later. Check out the "in the studio" forum for Ideas and help. :D --the dog

YAMAHA, You might check out some of the other members web site, lots of them ( Including myself) have recorded material on various hosting sites. Also lots of them use audacity(including myself) You can get a good idea what is available.

Yamaha!!.. One important thing to note about Audacity. Its a great program and I use it all the time BUT if you download it you will be prompted that you need a particular .dll file to convert it to MP3.. It doesnt happen with the standard download program. SO.. google the file it tells you that you need and put it in your audacity directory and then point it to that directory. Its really simple but I thought you ought to know.

Good luck.. I'll head out and take a listen to what you got.
