I'm not much of a lead player, but sure why not.

I'll do the last spot.

Great

So what do you want? The orginal track, with my guitar included, and a track with just my guitar from the start of the song?

How are you going to line up everyone? Do you need the track, with some clicks in front of it, to line up the timing? I'll email you the orignal track, with some clicks in front to line up everyone's track, if you want.

That way, you can share that track with everyone to help line up your timing.

What I want, as host, is a two file set from participants. The first file contains a 128bit mp3 with a 44.1kHz sample rate. This is just basically a CD quality audio file with all the stuff I can't hear anyway taken out of it (debatable of course). This file contains only your playing, meaning I can only hear you in it, except for the first couple of seconds which will contain part of the backing track so that I can line up the parts; this section usually has drum clicks in it. The beginning section might need to provide themselves and a later section of the track for alignment if they start playing right away; you must leave your part clean so I can take the clicks out of your track without damaging your submission.

The second file is a low quality mp3 of your section with the backing included; this provides an extra layer of certainty so I can be sure the tracks ligned up how the participant hears them. A good setup for this file is a 64bit mp3 at 44.1kHz.
Quoted from nroberts tutorial. We don't need the clicks we will just use the beginning of the track.

Hope this helps. If you need more help try reading the rest of his tutorial it is reallly helpful.

Send me your email address through PM or roberts.noah at gmail and I will send you an invite. After a couple weeks or less everyone gets 50 invites to hand out and they seem to renew themselves faster than you can give them away :p
