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 →

nice to see uploads re-enabled , will listen & downloads stats be fixed soon?
Sandsofa Studios on 02/09/19 at 12:36AM
Hi Brett, hi Danny, thank you very for re-enabeling upload.
For fixing ...
Now I have still some problems with upload limit: I think all files over 5MB will be blocked (nearbye 3minutes lenght).
I found no input for the tags,
only at my artist side, but there are all tags from music I ever made.
Nearbye 50% of my pictures are gone. I can't loading up actually any cover.
I'am shure it's only a question of time ... and all things you have been further fixed ;-)
SL35Steve on 02/09/19 at 01:47AM
Trying to upload audio using google chrome. Nothing happens when I hit the "browse your files" button.
how the night came on 02/09/19 at 02:17AM
me too, nothing happens when I press "browse your files" button

I have flash enabled in chrome

Jsin on 02/09/19 at 03:52AM
Same here. I can't upload on chrome or safari.
Fleslit on 02/09/19 at 06:05AM
Hi I'm Yung Kartz,

I have two issues so far.

Firstly, when I try to select the non-commercial license for my tracks, it doesn't work and sends me straight back to my homepage.

Secondly, because I can't select the proper license for my tracks, I am unable to publish my tracks publicly.
Sandsofa Studios on 02/09/19 at 07:20AM
Hi, with Opera I have the same problems, I take the newest Firefox. I think the problems is that there are some parts in flash and some parts in Java?
D. Yunkay on 02/09/19 at 07:56AM
files larger than 7 mb cannot be uploaded. that is a big problem.
Sandsofa Studios on 02/09/19 at 08:54AM
Im former times on FMA I remember there was a limit about 50-60MB (more than 20 minutes song)
Lemon Yellow Hayes on 02/09/19 at 11:04AM
Thank you! If you guys could fix the all too common bug that causes songs to disappear after editing song details, adding tags etc that would be great!
derekclegg on 02/09/19 at 11:39AM
Issue when trying to license tracks. Just takes you back to the album of the artist home page.
DRVNOfficial on 02/09/19 at 02:31PM
Yes, problems with images appearing
DinuraCreations on 02/09/19 at 04:28PM
Well done FMA! :D
dhilowitz on 02/09/19 at 09:35PM
I can upload songs (as long as I set my Flash to Allow in Chrome). During the upload process, image uploading doesn't work. Also, once uploaded, I'm unable to edit any songs. If I click the "Edit" button to change song details (add categories or set them as instrumental, for example). I'm unable to.
remix0120 on 02/10/19 at 05:31AM
the "+" is not working
Guifrog on 02/10/19 at 04:54PM
Nice job so far, it's very much appreciated!

I tried using Chrome for the first upload attempt - the button for browsing files doesn't give me a response.

On Firefox, it does. I've successfully uploaded a new record with more than 7 MB, but I got the same broken-image problem as the others and it seems it doesn't appear alongside the older ones on my Manage Albums list. Oddly it appears on the Manage Tracks list (for it's a single track, which might make sense but older uploads also consisted of single records), but then one of my tracks (the first I've uploaded on FMA, after curation process) is missing there. It's listed as an album though, and its single track can be accessed through my profile.

In fact, I found that my latest upload's titled as a "single", the oldest is an "album" and the others are "single track" on the profile page; the "single" category doesn't display stats and license info.

I also can't edit track information on Manage Tracks, for no response is given when clicking "edit".

That's what I was able to find for now. Hope it helps!
nctrnm404 on 02/10/19 at 07:04PM
Thank you for the updates! It appears however that the "License Selected Tracks". button does not work ;it took me back to the Edit Albums page. Also the "Edit Selected Tracks" button does not work.
wisd on 02/11/19 at 05:32AM
had problems uploading new tracks on Chrome and Firefox - so gave up for now.

A different issue that has come up - no images show up in all of my old albums or home page....all images disappeared.
Is it just me, or other having the same issue?
Scott Holmes on 02/11/19 at 10:43AM
Hi Danny,

Thanks to you and your team for taking on FMA!

For me personally, since I signed up in 2014 I've never been able to upload using Chrome, I've always had to use Firefox.

Currently, in regards to uploads, I'm having the same issues. I can upload tracks but when it comes to selecting a license, it then takes me back to my edit albums page.

Album photos are also disappearing on my end.
Mist Spectra Humanfobia on 02/11/19 at 03:48PM
Hello, when i click "license selected tracks nothing happens, the tracks was uploaded, but stills without appear published. and apart most of the profile artist image and the cover artworks appears broken. greetings
SECTION 27 on 02/11/19 at 04:36PM
Great to see you back. Unfortunately I tried two different browsers and the uploads never complete, like this example:
BenJamin Banger on 02/12/19 at 02:36AM
Can't upload a damn thing :(
DRVNOfficial on 02/12/19 at 05:43AM
Can't see ANY images on my profile and the listens for my latest release aren't registering
Sergey Cheremisinov on 02/12/19 at 08:48AM
I can upload, but don't can select a license. It doesn't work and sends me back to CMS - Albums Edit.
Nul Tiel on 02/12/19 at 10:28AM
Hi Danny. I'd like all ads removed from all artists on Nul Tiel Records please. Also, I can't add new tracks to existing albums - will this be fixed anytime soon, or do I have to upload the entire album again. Oh, and one more thing - is the upload limit going to change? I have some tracks that are over 30 minutes, even if I bring down the Kbps/Hz they're going to be way over the 7MB limit that seems to have been set. Cheers!
Sandsofa Studios on 02/12/19 at 10:47PM
Hi Brett, thank you very much!
All pictures at my sites are back!
Sandsofa Studios on 02/12/19 at 11:01PM
Just testing, I can upload a song over 17MB and changing the tags afterwards with firefox.
Cool it seems the next functions are back!
Guifrog on 02/12/19 at 11:07PM
Alrighty, here's another thing. It seems, as I was editing my most recent addition by uploading an album picture and confirming license info, it went from third to the top of the "recent highlights" list for some reason. I apologize for any inconvenience to other artists, though I assume it's another issue.
Fleslit on 02/12/19 at 11:27PM
Thank you for fixing the bugs!!!
Jsin on 02/12/19 at 11:36PM
So far so good! I was able to upload a single using Firefox. Also all my album pics are back. Good job! I'll see if any bugs show up.
Jsin on 02/12/19 at 11:40PM
Everything is looking good. If we can get the stats working that would be great. All in all, good job.
nomer1234 on 02/13/19 at 07:22AM
Very useful info particularly the last part. I was seeking this certain information for a very long time.

It is a very good article. Very helpful I'm having a problem with this. Thank you and best of luck.
Murmure_Intemporel on 02/13/19 at 11:04AM
Upload OK !
But no way for editing an album after uploading :(
enoughrec on 02/13/19 at 02:57PM
edit album not working

D. Yunkay: the upload size limit should be fixed now, thanks!
DannyKS on 02/13/19 at 07:12PM
Jsin: we're working on it, thanks for the kind words!
DannyKS on 02/13/19 at 07:12PM
Guifrog: just a note to thank you for this very helpful report!
Cota303 on 02/13/19 at 10:24PM
I can not upload albums art for new upload . Missed it while upload steps. And now instead of redirecting to edit page site goes to

Congratulations with re-open!

BROKEN listen count on my profile
Fleslit on 02/15/19 at 05:26PM
Just discovered a new bug... I can no longer edit my albums. :(
Hadokowa on 02/17/19 at 04:42PM
Hello, as I understand FMA is now for profit?
DannyKS on 02/18/19 at 04:11PM
@DRVNOfficial We're aware of the listen count bug and working to fix it.
DannyKS on 02/18/19 at 04:12PM
@Fleslit We're working on the edit album bug.
DannyKS on 02/18/19 at 04:16PM
@Hadokowa FMA has been acquired by KitSplit, which is a for profit company, however FMA itself is not for profit and we are dedicated to keeping it free.
Ketsa on 02/21/19 at 10:43AM
A few bugs I've noticed other than download and play counts not working, is that you're no longer able to download a who;e album as one (for new uploads)
Thanks for all the work guys :)
derekclegg on 02/21/19 at 11:57PM
Bug - deleting an album deletes it off your artist page, but it appears in the genre sections with error when playing and downloading.
sdm1 on 02/22/19 at 04:18PM
Cannot download anything
DRVNOfficial on 02/23/19 at 07:26PM
Listen count seems to be fixed, MUCH APPRECIATED
OkVibez on 02/23/19 at 08:56PM
Thanks alot...
Cambocambo on 02/24/19 at 09:00AM
Hey Folks, hope you're all well.
Things i've noticed -

1. My 'Contact Artist' email link is not working.

2. 'Download this Album' is not working for new album uploads

Thanks for your hard work Danny and Team.

Cheers, Cam
how the night came on 02/25/19 at 08:21AM
Hello Danny and the team,

Thank you for fixing the upload system. I can now upload using chrome with flash enabled!!

Unfortunately, my play count hasn't been working for months. Hope this can be rectified sometime soon.

Thank you in advance.

Best wishes, how the night came
DannyKS on 02/25/19 at 10:54PM
@derekclegg Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We're having the team look into it.
DannyKS on 02/25/19 at 10:56PM
@cambocambo The contact artist link should open a pop up form on the page. This may not be appearing if Flash isn't enabled for the site on your browser.
DannyKS on 02/25/19 at 10:57PM
Thanks everyone for letting us know about the issues with downloading. Our dev team has fixed the download and playback issues.
Temp on 02/26/19 at 08:13AM
"Contact Artist" and "E-Mail This Artist" doesn't work, I've filled form clicked the button - it says that message is sent, but nothing came to my box (tried 4 times for 2 days, (checked the spam box)). I Also removed contact email form artist info - it is now blank - but buttons are still there and act the same. Clearly a BUG.
wisd on 02/26/19 at 05:04PM
Hi. Thanks for working on making the site run smoother. bug - can't seem to edit a new album, can't upload an image from the Album page or by clicking Edit this Page.
TeenyT on 02/27/19 at 10:16AM
I think the problems is that there are some parts in flash and some parts in Java?
Mist Spectra Humanfobia on 02/27/19 at 03:30PM
Hi, i uploaded some stuff a couple of weeks ago, and works ok. but now i can't upload anything again.
apart a little suggestion. "is not better just remove the download, plays views, i all stay in zero.looks a little sad, is just my idea. in my personal opinion aren't important.
gentil on 02/28/19 at 12:53AM
Hey team! One more thing that you might want to look into: from Firefox, I get "This website does not supply ownership information" and "Connection is not encrypted", which means that some networks block the page entirely (like my Uni network).
Sandsofa Studios on 02/28/19 at 10:38PM
Hi Brett, hi Danny and kbudelis,
thank you for fixing the most bugs!

Acutally I can't change anything on my albums wondering if I have browser problems?
I activated flash, and tested with Firefox and Opera.

Best wishes Lobo
chrisandrews on 03/01/19 at 10:38AM
Discouraging without statistics...
DannyKS on 03/01/19 at 09:11PM
Thanks everyone for the feedback. We're aware of issues with editing albums and statistics and they are on the list to be addressed by our team. We've also shared the issues reported regarding contact and the Firefox browser.
Monplaisir on 03/02/19 at 10:37AM
Hey, I've tried creating a new album, after putting the name of the album, it leads me to the management of all the albums uploaded, no the page to edit the album.
Can't edit any album right now.
Offal Tunes on 03/05/19 at 01:19AM
Danny, thank you and the team for your diligence! I will sit back and wait for the dust to settle here...please keep up the good work. Thanks again! - Offal
DASK on 03/10/19 at 03:47PM
The Browse files for uploads does not work on Firefox (linux) with latest flash installed.
saturnine on 03/10/19 at 08:38PM
I have the same problem that Monplaisir has. Cannot edit new album.
doctor turtle on 03/11/19 at 06:02PM
Same problem as Monplaisir, can't edit any album or upload anything new. Firefox.
VibezByDRVN on 03/16/19 at 06:26PM
I'd like to upload some music, how do I get started with that? There's no options available for me to do such
jasaceme on 03/21/19 at 04:39AM
DASK on 03/22/19 at 07:07PM
Still lots of issues. Cannot edit an album that I have uploaded tracks but need to make a change before publishing. No way to add album artwork.
Monplaisir on 03/22/19 at 07:29PM
Still can't upload or edit album, is there any news about it ?
Sandsofa Studios on 03/22/19 at 09:47PM
Hi Monplaisir and the others,
with FIREFOX QUANTUM 65.0.2 (64bit) I've uploaded some albums.
This works there ...

With editing the albums afterwards I have some problems too.
Hope this helps you a bit.
Kathleen Martin on 03/24/19 at 04:42PM
Question: On Feb 4th I rec'd email from Danny saying "tabulation stats will be up and running this week!" However, stats are still not working on my tracks (and others). We see new uploads are counting plays and DLs, so why aren't all other tracks as well? Thanks for an answer!
Cullah on 03/24/19 at 07:54PM
I am unable to edit my albums. I press "Edit" and the page just refreshes.
Jsin on 03/27/19 at 04:42AM
So what's going on with the updates? It's almost April and the site still has so many bugs. The search still doesn't work, no download stats, contact artist doesn't work, that makes us artist look bad because people are trying to contact us, but we have no idea they sent an email. No updates from KitSplit. The FMA was home to me, but this may be it for Audiobinger on here. Sad....
DGrosso on 03/27/19 at 10:37AM
I've been using FMA for years and I've noticed the most interesting highlights section hasn't changed since the take over which is disappointing. This feature was great for checking out new artists/tracks.
alexdixon on 03/29/19 at 10:57AM
Thank you very much! I appreciate.
allonlinehelp on 04/02/19 at 06:22AM
Nice to see uploads working.Very nice to be here thanks shekhar
dmersonhess on 04/03/19 at 02:25AM
Hi Team Kitsplit. The "Contact artist for more permissions" feature of the FMA is currently not working. Messages don't send, but the sender isn't given any indication that it's broken. This is a very important feature of the site. Thanks for taking a look!
Monplaisir on 04/03/19 at 12:00PM
Upload still not working for me, I'm always redirected to the albums manager section of the website, not the page to edit a specific album.
Please, can you tell me if you have news about it.
Don't work with Firefox and Chrome.
D. Yunkay on 04/03/19 at 03:42PM
five weeks without answer from Danny. I cannot understand that. I am afraid that either he or the fma died in the meantime.
Jsin on 04/03/19 at 09:15PM
The FMA deserves better. In my eyes, it's dead. What's the point of uploading music if people can't contact the artist to use our music. There's no blog giving users a heads up saying contact artist feature doesn't work. Very unprofessional.
derekclegg on 04/11/19 at 08:30PM
FMA social media has gone quiet since April 1st. Was posting something daily prior.
Vivisectors Lab on 04/14/19 at 11:42PM
Seems like the login/logout functionality no longer works. I see that the response code is 500 and no re-direction is present.
The upload always redirects to https and then to http page with the link ""
Seems like the majority of the issues are on the backend, not browser compatibility.
happypuppyrecords on 04/15/19 at 10:45AM
Since the 'contact artist' link isn't working, I would suggest putting your email address on your band bio page...

...but last time I tried to edit it, it erased the changes and went back to the 'manage albums' page for some reason.

And for those with upload/browser issues, I was having trouble posting before KS took over - I could only use an old version of Seamonkey, as my current Chromimum (using Linux) couldn't recognize the flash button and could browse the drive to upload tracks.
Sandsofa Studios on 04/15/19 at 10:52AM
Hi, I hope don't hate me for I'am telling the same.
Working with Firefox Quantum 66.0.2 (64-Bit), and login into backend is in function.
Here I can upload Albums.
I can't change any albums playlist,
but I can change the informations about every published album.
If you like I can send some screens of it over mail?
Nevertheless I hope that someone from Kitsplit is answering here and supporting us musicains.

In the past before FMA ownership changed my contact form was without function (maybe since 2 years). I think the problem is here is that the autogenerated mail from the contact formular was no more forwarded. Maybe a change in the net policy.
For me also a big problem, I first thought is would be a problem from the spam filters of my hosting provider.
So I made last year some testseries with different mail clients for adressing ... registering some .com adress ... but all without results. It would be great if Kitsplit will bring this to work.
Best hopes Lobo
alexjt on 04/21/19 at 04:52PM
Hey all, looks like it's back up. I can finally login and say thanks for fixing it, and next time, will you PLEASE communicate what's going on? If KitSplit is going to take responsibility for something as critical as the FMA, you need to know, responsible.
