We use the MP3 format, so our digital files will play on virtually any computer or audio device. Devices vary, so please refer to your own device manual from the manufacturer for instructions on how to get music onto your device.
Please note: If you simply click on the link and play it, that is streaming it. Our website is not setup for streaming, and you will experience skipping and looping after doing this a few times. You have to download and save the file to your computer or laptop, then add to music player where you can then add to your cloud service or sync with your device.
We also offer FLAC files on select titles. FLAC files are created using the Free Lossless Audio Codec to compress audio files while maintaining a better audio quality compared to MP3 compression, though all of our MP3s are 320 kbit/s bitrate sampled at 44.1 kHz. Playing FLAC files requires you to install a software or filter that supports the FLAC compression format. Nearly all popular media players should be able to play a FLAC file, they might just require a plugin or extension to be installed.

Due to these large files, we recommend only users with access to a broadband Internet connection purchase MP3 downloads. Download files average around 80MB to 150MB in size for single titles; multiple CD sets are typically around 160MB to 400MB, or more.
Downloads are immediately available after your payment is processed on your order confirmation page, as well as in your account under “Downloads.”
From here, you should see the album or tracks that you ordered. Click on the link to start the transfer and a dialog box will prompt you to select “Save” or “Open.” You will want to select “Save” and take note of the target location where your browser will save the file.
(Please note: selecting ‘Open’ will simply open the file in your default player, and may not be available to you after you have played it.)
Once the download starts, it’s important that it finishes in its entirety before attempting to open it. When the transfer is complete, you’ll need to find the files that you’ve just downloaded. In Windows, if you didn’t specify a location, most browsers will save files to the “Downloads” folder which you can find inside “My Documents.” For Mac, the default destination is the desktop. If the files aren’t in those default locations, you can find the target location from that dialogue box mentioned.
