there is a file size limit, not sure what it is exactly...something like 100-200 Mb

Seems like anything over a certain number of minutes is a no go.. like Anton I can't remember what that is.. maybe 10mins?

I am just being a jerk, lol ... :) But yeah you both are right. It depends on the file size... I have tested that a few times now lol

32minute wtf.. im sure it depends on format.. I just remembered 1 time I tried to post something in excess of 10mins and it would not go. Maybe even less than 10? I only post wav's either way theres a data max amt.. or time max same thing.. depending on format. So maybe the answer here is for the REDflash to try posting an mp3 version?? Hell for all we know considering the REDflash's penchant for extremes it could be 5hrs long! HA!

I did a project that came out as 21 minutes in length. I had to render it from a 150 mb wav to a mp3 file below 20mb to get Kompoz to "take "it. Length- no limit. File size- yes, unless that has changed recently

I think limit is 150 mb (recently uploaded 128 mb wav)

As in the link Mike posted. No limit on length but max file size of 250 Mb.

With that project the full time length was 32.5 minutes. A full WAV file was 327 Mb and would not upload. I contacted support and was told the file size limit was 250 Mb. Converted that WAV to 320kbps MP3 which came in at 74.3 Mb and it uploaded no problem. The longest single song I did here was a Joel Sattler piece: https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/90049 that clocked in at a second under 11 minutes and went up as 20.03 Mb.

I believe the file size limit is much lower (somewhere around 50 - 60 MB). Kompoz has given me the "file size exceeded" error message a couple of times when I tried to upload files around 70 MB.

I always upload FLAC files though. Perhaps Kompoz - for whatever reason - converts the FLACs to WAV first and then checks the file size limit on the resulting WAV.

After all I said on this the other day I am now getting uploads failing. File size too big message coming up for a simple 20Mb MP3 file!

Wow this is really new ! I have upload some days ago 69 Mb wav and the system has accept ! I get more and more the feeling something is happening here on Kompoz in the last time that is not normal !

I hopefully remember right but it was on Kompoz 1 and there was a Drummer who had a problem with the limit and i think it was so like James has write 250 MB ! I have make a suggestion in the Kompoz 3 Group that the info about the Max file size should be an info for everyone available ! It could be written in the FAQ as only one example !!! Can you look here ! https://www.kompoz.com/music/group/kompoz3/forums/1297/1549 Sigh - I had for years the plan to make a Hippy Hoppy kind of interpretation of the Nibelungen Opera from Wagner but with a total playtime about 16 hours this will maybe not work !

Minime Record the opera at 6Khz lol which would make a much smaller WAV file at the cost of severely affecting quality lol

minime   commented 31 days ago


My tracks have all the time this Quality does not matter what kind of kHz rate i use ! I have in front of my tracks all the time a one bar Click and i have get some good feedback in the Years for this but this what follows is ...........something totally other then Music !

I'm not sure about the sizes that Kompoz server allows, but I do know if you record at a higher sample rate, the bigger the file, and even though a song could be around 4-5 minutes, recorded at a higher sample rate such as 96Khz would definitely make the file size a lot bigger, and when you try to upload it, Kompoz may not allow it, and then you wonder why it won't upload, the song is only 5 minutes, then you forget the sample rate, sooo, basically, a sample rate of around 44.1Khz is more than adequate for recording an average size WAV file, I always use 44.1Khz, and some of my sep wavs aren't any bigger than around 40MB, and with a song length of around 4 minutes the mix wav file is 38.8MB, and the sound quality is really no different than recording at 48Khz or even 96Khz
