      I am trying to encourage people to use metadata when naming sounds, otherwise filenames can get unwieldy. But no, owning sound miner is not a requirement to join the club. Besides, there are other ways of adding metadata – e.g. within Pro Tools or Wave Agent – than just by using sound miner. What’smore, I don’t own Soundminer either!

    Is the SCC still active? If I join now do I get a year from my join date?

      Hiya, yes the Club’s still active – I’ve been a bit preoccupied with work recently so there’s been less activity here on the site, but even when new themes aren’t starting or new posts appearing here, the club still ticks along growing in size month by month.

      We’re so close to the end of the membership year now that of course, if you join now I’ll carry your membership over into 2015 (until 31st December 2015). Look forward to hopefully welcoming you aboard!

    I have submitted sounds to the club before but I’m not quite sure what the guidlines are in terms of specs and length. Also should I decode M/S recordings before submitting?

      Only specs are as listed in the ‘How to Share Sounds’ page, and also in the ‘Audio Specifications’ section of the ‘Legal’ page – files should be at least 48kHz / 24 bit – preferably WAV files, as that’s the standard file format these days. As for length, I normally outline this in the specific description for each theme, but in a nutshell, whatever you think is a useful amount – bearing in mind that my primary use of these sounds is for film, so if you’re providing an ‘atoms’ sound, bear in mind that it could be used for a scene that’s 2 or 3 mins long so a 15 second file is a bit of a pain. But then if you’re providing a spot Fx like a metal impact for example, don’t give me 10 mins of the same hit over and over again. I’m reluctant to give set rules for this; just use common sense to deduce what is most ‘useful / usable’. As for decoding MS – if it’s not a big file then feel free to provide original MS and a decoded version for ease of use for people. However, if it’s a big file do just provide the MS / original version otherwise we’re gonna end up filling up drive space really quickly!
