    I've seen that the "General Music Discussion" forum is becoming a big mess, the threads already there will be moved

    So lets give a try on this new category, for anyone who is interested in audio sharing

    There are 4 forums as you can see

    Lossy: lossy compression formats, preferebly iTunes M4A, and MP3 with at least 256/320 kbps bitrate, no 128 kbps and such
    Lossless: lossless formats such as, FLAC and CD Images (.iso,...)


    All thread prefixes already set in

    How to create a Post (minimum requirements)

    First of all, files have to be obligatorily RAR archived with password, make sure you record your password in Winrar
    The password can anything you want, "sharemania.us" or something else like your username as long it isn't too long
    Don't make completely explicit archive names, create abreviated names or even acronyms with no spaces for example


    BEYLMN2016iT.rar

    And then a folder inside the .rar with the explicit release name, with the supposed audio files in there

    This is insure some level of protection to the links

    Layout:

    Title (standard release names)

    artist - album [iTunes Plus AAC M4A] (Year)
    artist - album [MP3 320kbps] (Year)

    artist - single [iTunes Plus AAC M4A] (Year)
    artist - album [FLAC] (Year)
    ...

    Album/Single cover
    Please search for some quality cover, you can search for identical higher resolution images with Google Images
    Remote upload to Imgur by copying and pasting the source url to Imgur's upload dialog box


    Genre: Pop
    Release date: 20 April 2016 (this format)

    Tracklist:


    (on a Spoiler [​IMG] named "Tracklist")

    Links: (as always with HIDE or HRPLY tags)

    I have a question...
    Can you add the "PACK" prefix? (to upload like a Discography)
    Thanks! :happy:

    Will you add "FLAC" "CD Image" prefix to Single (loseless) too?

    Preferentially 256 kbps to above

    There's always the possibility of ripping a lossless source to MP3 320 kbps

    128 kbps doesn't make much sense these days, that's the point...

    Previously iTunes Plus Purchases downloads in 128 kbps when there's the DRM. But nowadays, it's 256 kbps for iTunes Plus standards and MP3 is 320 kbps. FLAC may reach up to 2 mbps. Up to how it is ripped.

    wouldnt it depend on where you get the song? isnt the amazon mp3 tracks under that?
    i do remember seeing that Rihanna - Rated R nokia bonus edition or w/e it was was like 128 or 192 kbps.

    is there some sort of quality control for the lossless albums? are there logs that ensure they're indeed lossless?

    I really think we need an audience concert recording section. Some fans like that to
