    Hello I'm a composer/arranger and I have a lot of music which I'd like to upload onto a website somewhere. However, I have no idea about that sort of thing. What website would people recommend for showcasing my mp3s?

    Preferably one which allows for feedback comments from people who aren't registered users (as I plan on showing my friends). Thanks

    You could host your actual MP3s on a site such as FileDen or FileCabin, then start a blog using Blogger, Wordpress, Typepad and the like, making a posting for each individual song. As for how you can get people to listen to the songs... well... you can download this flash music player (right click, save as):

    http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/6/...8/player1a.swf

    then host it on fileden or whatever. You can use this code to embed the player on each blog posting:
    Code:
    <embed src="URL_TO_YOUR_PLAYER" flashvars="soundFile=URL_TO_YOUR_MP3&bg=0xd4d4d4&leftbg=0x6faabb&lefticon=0xffffff&rightbg=0x6faabb&rightbghover=0xc6e3f0&righticon=0xffffff&righticonhover=0x2c7ca9&text=0x2c7ca9&slider=0x4f97ac&track=0xFFFFFF&border=0x2c7ca9&loader=0xc6e3f0&loop=yes&autostart=no"></embed>
    If that all sounds too complicated, then use MySpace instead.

    I use http://www.box.net/ as it is very straightforward, has good file management and you can link to music to stream or download. Simple as.

    If I were in your position I'd put everything up on last.fm. You don't have to be registered to listen to streamable tracks but you have to register to make comments so it might not be ideal.

    It's a start. :p:

    use Soundclick.com...its where all producers, composers etc use, beats cannot be stolen (at least easily), and often professionals are looking for work on there...so you could secure something big.
