 is it time for another SOAPBOX MIXTAPE EXCHANGE?!

Who's with me?
Not many of us left but...arguably, the best ones 8-)
Hopefully we should be able to get 10 people, right?


We should keep the rules as they were: we all get paired with another random forum user and we do a mix for them. We then review the mixtapes on the forum. The track by track reviews are the best part.


The only difference I suggest is that we find alternative ways to share our mixtapes.
No more turtled mp3s. We have the tools to stream anything anytime anywhere.

We could:
- Put the mixtapes as long files on soundcloud, perhaps on a common The Soapbox account.
- Put the mixtapes as long files on Youtube as private videos, if we all have accounts
- Exchange youtube/spotify/tidal playlists
- Exchange text playlists

I think the Soapbox soundcloud account is the prettiest solution. We can all listen to one another's mixtape. And we can use the account in the future for other things. Long files are easy to make with Audacity.

Thoughts?!

Love the idea. And the idea of using Soundcloud. Spotify would work but not sure everyone uses it??

OR, why don't we go old school and post each order CD's? No? Okay, I understand.

Count me in.

I don't use Spotify (I use Tidal) and I doubt you could do much with a free account anyway.
I would have no problem making a long mp3 file and putting it on Soundcloud
I mean, we've done worse to share music, right?
About time we have an official Soapbox Soundcloud account too

Yeah, why not. Good idea.

I've also switched to Tidal, but don't use Soundcloud. But hey, how hard can it be? Never too old to learn and all that.

Great idea, but regarding SoundCloud: I think they can ban you for posting copyrighted Material.
Plus their soundquality is awful, they dumb everything down to 128 kbps of you don't have a +account.

Maybe just send the tracklist to the user so the user can make a corresponding Playlist on the streaming service of his/her choice? (Spotify, Tidal etc)

This forum is full of Weller-loving losers, I want nothing to do with them

hey seb hi!
Yeah we can swap text playlists and just listen to them on our streaming service of choice.
Or there's still the tried and true s€ndsp4c€ if we want to include something that's not on spoty/tidal
I think finding out how to share 10 songs with another member isn't going to be a problem

Plus if you all the mixtapes can be reconstructed on Tidal, I would have no problem turning them into long audio files with audacity and turtle all of them onto a Soapbox youtube channel with private links, so we all have our stuff "streaming". I think youtube allows copyrighted material if you don't monetise it!?
