Can I set audio preview for my project?

by Taishi

Yes, you can upload and edit your audio files via Qrates project simulator.



How to upload your Preview Tracks

To set your preview tracks, you can either upload the preview audio file from your harddrive in WAV or Mp3 format or you can copy and paste a link to a track you have previously uploaded to SoundCloud.


If you do not wish to make a preview available, just skip this step.



How to upload via SoundCloud

To add your preview track using SoundCloud, please copy & paste the URL to your SoundCloud track in the designated space. Then, click the “connect” button to complete the step.



How to upload your audio file directly

To add your audio preview, you can upload the file from the "Upload Audio File" button.

This will be uploaded as just a preview but if you wish to set this file as a downloadable track on QRATES as well, please select the checkbox. In order to enable a digital download, please make sure to upload a high-quality audio file in WAV (not mp3) format. Audio tracks for digital download can be made available separately.



After uploading a file

Write your track name and artist name on the white blank box for your project.

Please note that full track duration will be needed when uploading a short preview.

Also, you can arrange your track orders by drag&drop.

Can I limit the streaming time?

Not at this point. Only full streaming is allowed. Please upload a short clip of your track if you want to limit the streaming time. When we actually press your vinyl, we will ask for the full-length audio.

What sound quality are the streams on Qrates?

Streamed audio will be in 96kbps.

Can I embed my music on blogs etc.?

We don't yet have a Qrates player that can be embedded.  This is something we are working on.
