1. Name your tracksScreenshot of First part of Audio Buzz's upload track page

When naming your track, make sure you capitalize the first letter in each word.
Small words like “of” and “an” may be lowercase. Your MAIN track should be named as follows:

In the “Name” field – only enter the main track’s name. 
Cut-down versions of the main file should be named according to their duration, for example:

Track-Name_30sec.wav
Track-Name_15sec.wav
Track-Name-5sec.wav

Looped files should be named according to their duration, and be marked as looped, for example:

Track-Name_30sec-Looped.wav
Track-Name_15sec-Looped.wav
Track-Name-5sec-Looped.wav

Stem files should be named according to the stem type, for example:

Track-Name_Bassline-Stem.wav

Note: Cut-downs, looped and stem files will be uploaded in the next section’s “Upload audio files”
