well, for someone like me, who is on not-very-broad-band, myspace profiles tend to be so huge with pictures, and links, and other fol-de-rol, that it takes several minutes for the music player to load.  and by then, I'm gone...

The trouble with bandcamp (I find) is that you cannot upload mp3, only the huge wav or flac files.
I fully understand the reasons but, when you only have an mp3 version and you have to convert it "up" to wav and then watch the upload repeatedly fail because your link is too slow.... Angry

I agree, I thought it was a little odd for them to only accept lossless audio files. I suppose that's what they need to offer their 'download any file format' service - they need the biggest one to be able to compress and convert down to MP3s etc. so that the files you can download still retain good quality.

But I think there should be an option to just upload an MP3 and bypass that multiple format download business. Such a range of files may be convinient for the listener/consumer, but it may not be so convinient, as in Pedro's case, for the artist.

Pedro, I suppose this was one of the first things you covered, but I don't suppose you have the original session file, do you? Could you export a WAV from that original?
