Pay-Per-Download music in lossless FLAC format

Written by Lasse Penttinen @ 25 Jun 2003 12:01 User comments (2)

Livephish is a Pay-Per-Download service that offers live show recordings. Livephish has now adopted their premium service downloads to use the lossless open source FLAC audio format. This means that the downloadable files are of 44.1kHz/16bit CD audio quality.
For fans who desire higher fidelity, we also offer a premium format. FLAC is a "lossless" compression which means that the source audio file is compressed, but without sacrificing any of the audio information contained in the master recording. An extracted FLAC file sounds identical to the original source (44.1 kHz, 16 bit stereo). The hi-fi FLAC files are much larger files and will take longer to download. These files are for audiophiles who want the best sound quality. FLAC files may be burned directly to CD on a PC running Nero CD Burning software with the FLAC plugin, while Mac OS X users must extract () FLAC to AIFF files to burn CDs or to listen to the files.You may listen to FLAC files with a special plug-in for Winamp (PC). Be sure to check compatibility with your favorite software or portable player.
The Nero FLAC plugin is brought to you by Mausau and CD-RW.ORG - download Nero audio plugins (13 different audio formats) from HERE.
