Mp3s are encoded using the lame encoder with setting '--preset insane' which produces the highest possible quality 320 CBR mp3s, which are suitable for all purposes, including djing. If you wish to have tracks in cd quality, please download them in flac or wav format.
Flac is an acronym for Free Lossless Audio Codec. Flac is a non lossy music format, which means that the quality is as high as the original wav the flac was encoded from: no data is lost. Flac tracks available on Digital Tunes are of cd quality, but at roughly half the filesize. For more information on the flac audio codec visit flac.sourceforge.net
Currently no music purchased on Digital Tunes uses any form of Digital Rights Management, as we do not believe there is any DRM scheme currently in existence that is of benefit to the consumer.
