Uploads, bug fixes, and questions–oh my!

As promised, uploads have been re-enabled for artists and curators on Free Music Archive! Please let us know if you’re having trouble with uploading.


As we mentioned in our last update, we’ve been working on additional site improvements, including taking care of the “URI Invalid” bug that was plaguing search result pages—thanks to everyone who reported that!


In that vein we’ve put together a short survey to learn more about you, so we can make Free Music Archive even more useful. Anyone that completes our survey is eligible to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card. Click here to take the survey →

Is this thing on? Some updates from Danny & the KitSplit Team

Hi FMA–I hope your 2019 is off to a great start! By way of introduction, I’m Danny—the new director of the FMA. For those of you who might have missed the news on FMA’s transition, check out Cheyenne’s post.
 
The KitSplit team and I are excited to keep FMA alive, thriving, and true to its mission of sharing free, curated audio to all. We’ve been hugs fans of FMA for years and inspired with its mission, which is very much aligned with ours. We were so sad to see the news that it was shutting down. And ultimately, so thrilled we could step in to keep it alive and thriving!
 
The transition happened very quickly. We’ve spent the past month learning more about FMA and how it’s run, and completing transition from a technical perspective. Now that we’re up and running, we wanted to formally introduce ourselves and let you know about some updates in the works.
 
A few folks have messaged in to ask when you’ll be able to upload your music to FMA again...well, we have some good news. We’ve been hard at work at this, and uploading for curators will be re-enabled by the end of this week We’ll be sure to update you when that happens.
 
Meanwhile, we’re working on bringing back the newsletter, and additional site and community improvements. We will have more announcements in that vein soon. We’re also looking into incorporating advertisments on the FMA site, which will help us ensure long term sustainability for the FMA. For some background: the FMA was previously run mostly on government grants, which are no longer viable—so this is one of a few changes we may make to ensure long term sustainability of the FMA, while staying true to its mission. 
 
On a parting note: while we’ve been fans and users of FMA for years, we know we still have a lot to learn about the community and how it runs. We’re eager to hear from you about what changes you’d love to see on FMA. If you have any suggestions or questions for me or the KitSplit team (or just wanna say hi) make sure to drop a comment below this post.
 
Thank you for your support and cooperation during this transition. We’re so grateful for all of the kind words we’ve received from the FMA community!
 
 
- Danny
 
[UPDATE 2/1/2010] - Our developer Brett (who has been with KitSplit for a while and actually used to work at FMA!) has been working on reenableing uploads this week. He initially thought he could finish it by end of this week, but ran into some unexpected technical hurdles. However, we will have uploads re-enabled for curators soon- by the end of next week at the very latest (and likely sooner). We will keep you all updated and let you know as soon as uploads are re-enabled!
