All-East Honors Ensembles Update (8.31.20)
Tips for recordings in Submittable:
- The maximum video size per file is 400MB – the larger the video, the longer it will take to load (800 MB per submission)
- mp4 files appear to upload better than .mov files
- Small rooms with good acoustic qualities will create the best recording
- A good microphone and a good piece of recording equipment (high end computer or digital recording device) are the two things that can most improve a recording.
