Just downloading the Kreega Bondola liberated bootleg and in the bumph the person states they uploaded a CD to this site.

How do you do this? I'm assuming I would need software to convert the CD into FLAC files.

I have the Dutch Courage May 24th 1980 (on HOBO) and the quality is excellent. I'm pretty sure this is an unlicensed product.
If it is unlicensed product, does it fall under the same legal status as a liberated bootleg? ie I can upload it.
Advice please.

Hi Mark!

Welcome to the board Smile

I've recognized recent posts of you and conversations with others about certain technical aspects of down- and uploading. I suppose someone has already showed you this FAQ site? http://www.zappateers.com/bb/faq.php

As for the mentioned CD - yes, it is a bootleg from recent years and very likely to be a copy of an upload that's already in our catalogue:

http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=18442
http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=18494
http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=18518
(the shows are listed here: http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=7718)

Sharing stuff is of course generally appreciated but in this case I wouldn't bother to upload the content of your CD.

Regarding ripping CDs:
I do it with this software: https://www.freac.org/index.php/de
I know of others using this: http://exactaudiocopy.de/

You know what the club is if you're quoting George Carlin.

Just followed your link and you're definately teasing me!

Well I've just downloaded the fre:ac - free audio converter v1.1 Alpha 20180716

Managed to unzip it (god knows how), now to figure out how it works.
Hope the manual is not in German.

Well I've just managed to rip the Dutch Courage CD to my hard drive in the form of a flac file.

I'm in the process of downloading http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=18442 off the tracker. I'll then compare the two.

If my version is significiently better should I upload it, although I wouldn't do it immediately as I want to explore the more advanced options in terms of ripping and compare my own ripped versions. The rip I've just completed is a 'basic' rip just to get started.

If I wanted to upload it what are the processes involved in uploading flac files?

If you still don't manage to do it, let's continue via PM.

I've just been to the Seed Conventions page and I think I can follow the instructions.

Can I make a torrent via fre:ac - free audio converter v1.1 Alpha 20180716 or do I need MORE software? If so, what would you recommend (I'm on Windows 10)?

Does PM stand for Private Messaging and how does this work?

Thanks again for your input and your patience with me.

My Grandmother used to say to me when I was a child; "You want to know the ins and outs of Meg's arsehole" (lovely phrase-which meant I always asked questions). I don't think you should ever lose that child-like sense of curiosity and inquisitiveness.

Your torrent software (with which you downloaded files so far) is able to create a torrent file. All the necessary information should be in the FAQ. Be patient too, okay? Wink

You'll find the button "PM" at the bottom of my post - this will lead you to a window for a private message to me.
