Submission file size - Strict?

Recommended Posts

How strict is submission file size? I know that there is an 8 meg limit, but would 9.5 be pushing it?

The reason I ask is because I'm happy with my mix and it might stress my mind if I had to submit a lower quality version. I suppose the difference would be barely audible, but still! :puppyeyes:

Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks all!

Either you've got a lot of crucial details in the really really high range or it's a looooooooong remix that you need the encoding high for. Scraping off 1.5 megs with a lower encoding shouldn't hurt a typical long mix unless you go under 128kbps (in which case the mix proabbly is too long).

Tho if it's as long as I suspect, it's probably either pretty repetitive or suffers "medley-itis" so there's a chance the question is moot if it can't get on ocr for those reasons.

I suggest you show it to a judge on IM or irc to hear what they think you should do.

Like people have said, it's strict and non-negotiable. Use something like LameVBR to encode the file, and feel free to plug a higher bitrate version if it does make the site in a lower bitrate.
