Quick guide for uploading musical content

E-Piano: 

The weak point of e-pianos is their speakers. So if possible record directly via USB or cable (line-out). Most e-pianos now have a USB input, so you can directly record your tracks as wav or mp3 in good quality without external noise. Alternatively you can use the line-out outputs via cable and connect them directly to a recording device (line-in).

Recorder: e.g. Zoom, Olympus, Tascam or external microphone

  • Place your recording device as close as possible to your instrument so that as little reverberation as possible is present in the recording, and regulate the sensitivity of the microphones so that they do not clip during loud passages.
  • If possible choose wav format, otherwise mp3 with the highest possible quality (320 kbps)
  • Take 2-3 takes of your piece and use the best of them.
  • On the computer you can cut and amplify your recordings e.g. with Audacity (tutorial here)
  • You can then save the edited file (Menu -> Export)
  • Take a photo of your instrument or something related to the piece (you can also find beautiful public domain photos on www.pixabay.com)
  • Now you can register or log in to AccompaMe
  • Using the Upload-> Accompaniment form, you can now enter the metadata such as composer, work title, works directory, key.
  • Upload the selected image as well as your recorded music
  • Determine the selling price and the license
  • Finished!

Sheet Music:
You can offer your own arrangements and compositions in the form of pdf notes. As a product image for the sheet music, please upload the first page as an image (jpg, png).

  • use e.g. http://pdftoimage.com to save the first page as a picture for the product image (as a preview for buyers). The ZIP folder with the image file appears directly below the Select button.
  • Use your music notation program (Finale, Sibelius) to create a wav file as an audio sample so customers can hear what your arrangement or composition sounds like.
  • You are also welcome to upload own recordings of the piece as a file or link in the form.
  • Using the Upload-> Accompaniment form, you can now enter the metadata such as composer, work title, works directory, key.
  • Upload the selected image as well as your recorded music
  • Determine the selling price and the license
  • Finished!
