Posting Audio-Only Recordings

NEW: Send your recording to us at and we'll create a YouTube video for you to use!

If you aren't able to make a video recording, or don't feel comfortable with it, audio is great too! Here are some free and easy ways to do this, in order of preference:

1) Create an "audio-only" YouTube video. You can use Windows Movie Maker (Windows) or iMovie (Mac) to create a video with that plays a sound file that you supply, with a stationary image that you choose as the background. This allows others to find your recording just like any other YouTube video, and we can add it to the official TOTM playlist. This site has detailed instructions on how to do this.

2) Upload to SoundCloud or DropBox. You can put a sound file in your DropBox public folder, or upload it to your SoundCloud account, then post a link to the group. The link will only work as long as you leave the recording where you originally uploaded it, and other people will not be able to find it unless you give them the link, but it is an easy and fast way to share your recordings.
