I've been toying with this idea for a while and I think I'm gonna do it. Anyone else done this? I know Keith303 did a while back.
I set up an account with Routenote which lets you put stuff up for free, and they take 15% of your earnings.
Not like I expect to earn anything anyway. I just think it would be cool/funny to have my stuff on there.
I was surprised when I saw the site expects mp3s as the source files though. I really would have thought they would use lossless. You want it to be as high quality as possible from the source, so it doesn't get re-encoded upon streaming. That's my logic anyway.
Apparently you can do lossless, but only on their pay accounts, which is like $10 per song.
I wonder if the other services do lossless.
Anyway. I'm just gonna do 320kbps mp3s. It'll just be a compilation of some of my favorite songs of mine from over the years. Basically a "greatest hits", if I ever had any hits, lol.
Anyone got any tips or anything? I heard it takes 3-4 weeks for the stuff to "aggregate" to Spotify. I'll post a link later just for giggles
