Sharing an audio file with someone is a fairly simple process that can be accomplished in a few different ways.
1. Email – One of the easiest ways to share an audio file is via email. Most emails have an attachment size limit, so if your file is larger than the capacity of a single message, you may have to use compression or split it into multiple emails.
2. File Transfer Protocol (FTP) – If neither of you have an email account, you can use a file transfer protocol service to send the audio file from one person to another. With an FTP site, you can upload files and then share them with others. The recipient will then be able to download them onto their computer.
3. Social Networking Sites – Many social networking sites are now offering audio file sharing capabilities. Using the privacy settings on the site, you can easily upload audio files and share them with only certain users.
4. Cloud Storage – Cloud storage sites like Dropbox, Google Drive and iCloud make it easy to share large audio files with others. You simply upload the file to your cloud storage account and then provide the recipient with the file link. This allows them to download the file without having to wait for it to arrive in their email inbox.
5. Instant Messaging – Some instant messaging applications also offer audio file sharing functionality. AIM, Skype, Yahoo Messenger and others allow you to share audio files with friends and contacts in real time.
6. CD/DVD Burning – If you want to share the audio file with someone who does not have access to the Internet, your best bet would be to burn the file onto a CD or DVD. You can do this by using CD burning software such as Nero or Roxio and then giving the CD or DVD to the recipient.
7. USB Flash Drive – Another option for sharing audio files offline is to copy the files onto a USB flash drive and hand it to the recipient. This is a great solution for sharing large audio files when you don’t have an Internet connection available.
Whichever way you choose to share an audio file, be sure to double check that the file is working before sending it to the recipient. That way, you can rest assured that they will be able to listen to it with no problems.
