b) Your browser should then display a “Save as” dialog. The “Save as” dialog lets you select the folder into which your file will be copied. Choose the folder your prefer and then click the “Save” button in the dialog to begin the download process.
Each download comes as a complete album in a single ZIP file, with all the individual tracks as FLAC files or MP3 files (according to your purchase).

We recommend WinZip

To open a Zip file double-click on the file.
If you have any problems we recommend you download StuffIt Expander

  • Step 7: Listen and enjoy!!

MP3 320 kbps can be played by almost all desktop players and portable devices such as iPads and iPhones.

FLAC files are not natively supported by some media players (including iTunes and Windows Media Player). Certain applications are available that enable you to listen to FLAC files through iTunes. These include Fluke for Mac.
Alternatively, VLC and Songbird are players that can both be used to play Flac Files on Mac and PC.

You can listen also listen to FLAC files on your computer if you have a Flac player. If you don’t you can find a list of downloadable players at: http://flac.sourceforge.net/download.html

Alternatively you can convert your FLAC files to .wav files (for PCs) or .aiff files (for Mac OS X) and listen to them on your computer or burn them on a CD.
