In attempting to upload my recording, which passed its test in Checker, I get the following error:

Error SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0

The file is correctly named, and I checked the metadata. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Try deleting the metadata altogether. That's usually the issue, I think. For actual recordings, all the metadata is overwritten anyway when they're catalogued, so you can just leave it blank.

False alarm. I found the reference to this error and did a fresh log in to uploads. I also discovered a problem with the file type which I was able to correct - it had to do with the manner in which I did the export from Garageband. When I repeated the export in the manner I'd used previously, that problem went away, even though both versions were mp3 files.
