FLAC Now Available
After many months of promises and procrastination, I have finally gotten to this. For those of you who don’t know, FLAC is a lossless compression format, which basically means these files are smaller than full quality ones would be but they sound just as good. (The MP3 format makes music files much smaller, but you lose some amount of quality along the way.) This may or may not matter to you depending on your ears, headphones, etc., but a lot of you have asked for them, so here they are.
You’ll need a device or player software that supports FLAC, so don’t just go buying these willy-nilly if you don’t know what you’re doing. They’re the same price as MP3s. And of course, I’ve just set it up so I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the files are named wrong, or missing, or whatever. Just let me know if you have any trouble and I’ll fix it as soon as I can.
Some of you will ask me, “Hey JoCo, I appreciate you making those files available, and I understand it must have taken an awful lot of time and effort and everything (you rule dood, thx!). But I already bought music in mp3 format, and I love FLAC. FLAC FLAC FLAC! LOL! Anyhoo, I’d prefer to listen to your music in its full-quality audio glory. Can I trade my mp3s in for FLAC?” To which I will say “Yes, I think.” I’m not sure how many of you will want to do this, and I’m not sure how easy it’s going to be for me to send you new download links. Obviously if you bought the whole collection that’s pretty easy for me to do, but if you picked 13 different songs a la carte, that’s going to take a little more effort. So if you’re in this situation, just let me know and we’ll see if we can work it out.
And now, enjoy your FLAC.
