What is Audio Mic
Audio Mic is for your tracks, whether they are beats or spitten verses.

Creating A Thread
Each thread should contain one song linked off site with a descriptive title such as the name of the song, you can also include other artists featuring on the track in the title.

You should aim to only post finished works in Audio Mic. If you want feedback on a work-in-progress, then you should post it to the Elevation Centre forum. This helps keep the site looking professional but still allowing people to improve their work.

Mixtapes and Albums
For a mixtape or an album, you should post it collectively in the Mixtape forum. Though individal tracks can still be added to Audio Mic on their own.

Embedding Your Tracks
it is best to use either Soundcloud or YouTube to host your songs, as these can be embedded into the post. To embed your posts, you can use the following codes, removing the * from the BBCodes.
SoundCloud

[*soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/lyricalassault/la-exclusive[/soundcloud*]

Would result in the following being embeded


https://soundcloud.com/lyricalassault/la-exclusive

YouTube

[*tube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhktX0q50w8[/tube*]

Or
[*tube]qhktX0q50w8[/tube*]

Would result in the following being embedded.


Broken Embedding
The site has a Rich Text Editor, which allows you to format your posts and see the results straight away. Some times when entering YouTube or other BBCodes, it can add formatting (such as bold or italic) without you realising it, screwing up the embedding code.

The best way to fix this if it happens, is to copy and paste the code into Notepad or another Plain Text Editor (even the search box on your browser) then copy and paste it back. This removes the formatting, allowing the embedding code to work correctly.

Linking Your Social Accounts

While this is not a requirement, linking your social accounts with your LA account can have produce benefits for you, such as expanding your reach and audience. There are also new features coming in the pipeline that will make things easier.

Linking your SoundCloud account with Lyrical Assault will display your LA username on any of your tracks featuring in the LA Radio, helping to give you the credit you deserve.

To link your accounts, simply go to the Account Settings page of your control panel and click on the icon for the networks you wish to link and then follow the steps provided.
