More About MP3s

Our MP3s are encoded at 128 - 320kpbs CD Transparent Audio Quality. A 3.5 minute song may average 4 - 5 Mb and take approximately 20 - 30 seconds to load over a high speed internet connection, or possibly 30 minutes over a 56K phone line. If you still use a 56K modem we recommend that you purchase the CD, then "rip" it yourself to MP3. For more information on MP3s click here. Heartistry Music strives for the highest possible audio quality in all of its CD products. MP3 format is a way of removing "unnecessary" digital information from a music file so that it takes up much less space on a computer or on a player such as an iPod. This "unnecessary" digital data often includes some audio data. Therefore, the smaller you make the file, the less the audio quality will be. The process of converting CD Music files (.wav or .aiff) to MP3 is called "ripping". Windows Media Player, iTunes, MusicMatch Jukebox, and Real Player, etc., have ripping capability built into their programs. With MP3 and other audio formats it is "Quality vs. Quantity". MP3s can be ripped different "bit rates" varying from 64Kbps (kilobytes per second) to 320Kbps and even higher. The higher the number, the better the audio quality and the larger the file. So, if you want 20,000 songs on your iPod you may be happy with a lower bit rate. If you don't need 20,000 songs and want better sound quality, a higher bit rate may be your preference. Also, the larger the file, the more time it will take to download.


Our MP3 files are ripped at 160Kbps "CD Transparent Audio" quality. If you are listening to an iPod or similar player through small headphones, or even through average computer speakers or an iPod "dock", you probably won't notice any difference between a 64 Kbps file and a 260Kbps file. If you are an "audiophile" listener and prefer to hear your music through well designed speaker systems or "studio reference monitor" headphones such as AKG 240df, you should probably get the hard copy CD. This will also allow you the option of ripping MP3s from the CD at any bit rate you want.

We hope you enjoy our MP3s.
