I'm a Mac user, but my understanding is that the .wav format is a Windows native, lossless medium type, comparable to AIFF. The files will be large because they're uncompressed, but any windows user will be able to play them, as well as Mac users with Quicktime - and perhaps other media players as well. So the answer is, yes, most people will be able to hear them. > Bravery? How could this possibly scare me? It's just the time. I've > got a business and family life. A little at a time. I used the word bravery because your compositions, are at least to some, now unable to stand on their own merit. Your discourse on this list has, perhaps irrevocably, biased some members of this particular audience in one direction or the other. It's a bit like jury selection. To get a fair and accurate judgement, one would have to actually find people that have never seen or heard about the White Bronco 'slowing' down the highway. I must admit, you've expanded the plausible nullification of any negative assessment from your original pre-emption "The neophyte does not have the ability to understand me" to also include "It is not my creative work that generated a negative assessment, but rather my personality". That is a pretty convenient defense strategy, intentional or otherwise, but if what you'd like is feedback on your music — the lack of which, after a 7 month pre-natal period, bore your recent paroxysm — you've effectively (at the very least potentially) removed the legitimacy of any feedback you receive. That goes for positive as well as negative feedback.
