Default need gtr solo collab

How do I copy a portion of a song and then attach it in a thread so that I can ask others to add a guitar solo?

Make a time selection on the timeline, then in render settings set to MP3 and render the time selection only.

You need to make sure you can exactly align what the user submits back into your project. So long as the user sends back a WAV that is the exact length of the file you sent you can do it that way, assuming you make a region or something so you have the original positions marked.

Also supply your project's sample rate and bit depth so the user can use the same when they attempt the solo ideas. Someone else may have a quicker/easier method, not sure.

If you like, I have a Drop Box account that I set up to collaborate with other musicians on, didn't get a lot of takers, but if you want to use it, PM me with your contact info and I'll fix you up with the login info.

The reason this might be a better way to go because with the Drop Box account, you can upload the entire song so that the soloist can use the entire song as his or her inspiration for the solo.

Yea, in all cases it can't really be attached to the thread directly FYI.

Probably because the file is too big. You're going to have to use something like Drop Box, Google Drive, etc.

So does this work?
https://www.dropbox.com/s/cic72h00qu...irror.mp3?dl=0

Chords are Dm, C, G, Bb
Intro is 8 bars (2 bars each chord).

Anything else, just ask. I would prefer to post the tracks, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

I probably missed but which bar(s) in that file do you want the solo to begin/end?

Begin 89.01, end 121.1. Whole thing goes from 81.1 to 125.1.

So the solo starts 8 bars in and ends 4 bars before the end of the recording.

I intend to mix and play with after.
