To upload an .mp3
To add an .mp3 file from your computer or network, click on New in Audio file. Select Upload a file. Use the Browse button in the Upload file popup to search your computer or accessible network. Select the .mp3 file, and the select Upload file.
You can also upload an .mp3 from Dropbox. For more information about using Dropbox to upload files please see the Using Dropbox to upload images doc.
NOTE:The acceptable file type is a mp3 file. It is a good idea to use compression software to shrink your file size down as small as possible before uploading it. Smaller file sizes will mean faster loading times for your site users. Files larger than 8mb will need uploaded via a Processing Job.
