We would like to announce a revolutionary new addition to Newgrounds. Ladies and gentlemen, enter the AUDIO PORTAL!
Newgrounds Audio Repository
This new extension of NG allows musicians to upload their music loops and sound effects, to enter the "NG Public Domain". This means that while you will still retain ownership and credit for your audio submission, users will be allowed to freely use it in their Flash submissions, without fear of royalties or licensing fees!
The time for an audio Portal has come. The net on internet music broadcasting is slowly dropping, and Flash authors will BE FORCED to stop using commercial audio and start using something completely free. The industry doesn't seem to understand the promotion they gain by the works of their fans, so we must turn our backs on it. It is time to musicians and Flash artists to come together directly for the common goal of fresh entertainment!
We now ask that all aspiring musicians on NG start uploading their audio to the repository, and all Flash designers start downloading it for use in their work! We have limited the audio filesize to 400k to avoid file-swapping for entire songs. Any abuse of the new system (ie uploading music that is not yours) will result in account deletion.
This new system will grow organically as it is used, so all feedback is highly appreciated! We want to make this an endless resource for Flash developers, with a wide selection of music! It is also a great place for aspiring musicians to be discovered. We will soon be adding new fields to the Flash submission page, where authors can credit the musicians via unique ID numbers associated with their audio files. This ID is contained in the filename, and will be all a Flash author needs to provide full credit to the musician.
Questions? browse the new section first, then feel free to respond if your questions aren't answered.
I hope this brief explanation is enough to get things started. The new section may be rough around the edges, so please respond to this thread with any suggestions!
SUBMIT YOUR ORIGINAL MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS!
Ok, when this post was submited, almost 20 days ago, I was under the impression that this subsite would be solely for authors who wanted to expose self made music/sound effect files who made themselves. The first day I checked it out, there were aproximately 90 entries, and several of them were "legit bands." One of the files was "Offspring -Guitar Riff." I mean, is this really a good idea to have? Self made covers are fine...
