How long does it take to get the downloads I purchase?2017-07-05T12:17:42-08:00

Download links are emailed to you immediately after payment. They are also listed on your order confirmation page, as well as on your account page. The download links are good for 24 hours, and up to three download attempts. If you have trouble downloading the files within the allotted time, then please email [email protected] and we will refresh the link.

Please keep in mind that 24-bit files are large and downloads will typically take 30 minutes or more – even with broadband internet connections – and even longer with slower connections.

What’s all the fuss about these 24-bit files?2017-07-05T12:17:42-08:00

Remember the first time you saw a movie on BluRay? It’s kind of like that with 24-bit files. We promise, you’ll hear the difference! These are the highest quality files that exist for these releases – this is the way we hear the music during the mixing and mastering process. To be honest, we hate to even lower the quality of these pristine masters down to 16-bit/44.1k in order to release the music on CD. But, that’s where 24-bit comes in – try it, you’ll hear why!

If 24-bit files are so great, then why aren’t more of your releases available in that format?2017-07-05T12:17:42-08:00

We’ve really only been mixing/mastering at 24-bit quality for the past handful of years. Earlier titles were mixed and mastered at 16-bit/44.1k CD-quality, so that’s the highest level of quality available for those.

We wouldn’t simply bump 16-bit/44.1k releases to higher bit and sample rates just to call them “high res” or “high definition.” (Think of enlarging a photo larger than 100% of its original size…sure, it’s larger, but it’s also blurry). If the project wasn’t originally mastered at 24-bit resolution, then we won’t be offering it at that resolution. We just care too much about the quality to do it any other way.

Why don’t you offer individual tracks as downloads?2017-07-05T12:17:42-08:00

We believe that music is art, and to us the album concept is sacred. As a label, we offer the music as it was originally envisioned by the artist – as a complete experience. Of course, there are other online outlets where individual tracks may be purchased individually.
