SpinTunes 17 Round 3 RESULTS

Round 3 is always brutal. 14 artists have proven themselves twice over, and only 4 can go on to the final round. The judges had the impossible task of ranking these songs against each other, for which there are no objective criteria. As evidence of how close these songs were in quality, there were t...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I put together a virtual rendition of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus for Easter at my church. Our friend Sober was kind enough to join the choir as well.

SpinTunes 17 Round 2 RESULTS

The Round 2 results are in, and the man who impressed the judges in Round 1 has done it again. Is this unprecedented in SpinTunes history? Maybe, but I don't have time to look it up.

Re: SpinTunes 17 Round 1 Songs

I think you are right. The playback on the Soundcloud page is far better than the playback of the downloaded .wav If you send me your song by a different way (DropBox, Bandcamp, email attachment, We Transfer... etc) I'll be happy to replace the file in the SpinTunes Bandcamp album.
