    Hey all, I've just recently started dabbling in music, and I was wondering what you all think but I don't know how to upload them on this site without being a member+ seeing as how all my songs go over the 4.88mb limit. How much does 4.88mb equal out to in song length, or is there a certain way to save/extract songs to make them not so big?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Upload them to a file sharing site like mediafire or dropbox, then post the link here. You can make an account for free with most of them. Hope that helps.

    Alright thanks.

    Also, I am using Music Creator 6 because it just came on steam and I was curious about something.

    Is it normal for a four minute song to be almost 100mb? Am I saving the song wrong or is the program itself like encrypting the songs somehow? I mean I don't think all the music in the three different maker programs I have combined equal up to like 100mb. Kind of odd.

    Yeah, 100 MB sounds like quite a large file size for a song. What format are you saving it in? Try to save it in .ogg format. That's the format that works well on VXAce and is used the most on here and it's smaller than .mp3 and .wav.

    I just got the program yesterday so I really don't know if it will let me save in any other format than what it defaults to. The only way I know is to add .ogg at the end, but that doesn't really change the file size. I've looked and I don't see an option to change the format for saving. Perhaps it's their way of getting you to buy their plug-ins? I don't know :( .

    Put them through Cubase or any kind of convertor. They're probably in .wav format, so change it to .mp3.

    Get Audacity and you should be able to convert it your exported audio track to ogg quite easily, that's how I do it anyway.
