We have had some requests for a written directions for preparing the Blindfold Tests. Setting up a blindfold test: Choose your songs, and rip them to MP3 or record them to a CD-R. CD-R: This will automatically strip the song info and is the easiest way. Then mail the disc (I will provide my mailing address on request via a private message). MP3: Please strip the song info (metadata) so the songs are not identifiable to the listener. You can do this in most MP3 management programs (iTunes), or you can use a tag stripper (that’s the name of the program). I check them before I share them, but if you strip them first, I get to take the test. If you don’t, I can’t. Please name the tracks in the following manner: Track01.mp3, Track02.mp3, etc. No spaces, and zeroes before numbers 1-9. This is so they will appear in the correct order in the online player. If you don’t do this, I have to rename the files or the test doesn’t play in the correct order. It sounds like a small thing, but it is actually quiet time consuming. Getting me your MP3 files. There is one acceptable method. If it’s one you’re not comfortable with, you will need to burn me a disc. Files can be uploaded directly to my server using an FTP program (Filezilla, Cyberduck, etc.). Filezilla is open source with no crap involved (it’s a save download) directly from Mozzilla. I get it if you don’t want to have to download something (really, I do), but you will then need to burn a disc and send via mail. I’m happy to host the tests, but I can’t do it as a part-time job, so these are the only acceptable methods of transferring the test moving forward. Thank you for understanding.
