The File Types You Can Download: MP3, WAV and FLAC
Ochre stores MP3s are very high quality, encoded to using the LAME codec (program), widely acknowledged as the best MP3 encoder available.
WAV files are uncompressed lossless files. This is the same quality as on a CD.
Ochre stroes only sells 16-bit FLAC files.
FLAC files are the same quality as WAV files however they are compressed, so are a smaller file size. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec and is an open source format. For more information about this visit: Sourceforge.
Please note iTunes DOES NOT support the playback of FLAC files. There are extensions to iTunes that allow the playback of FLAC files. and lots of other media players available that support this file format. For example: VLC.
Selected titles on the store are available in 24-bit WAV.
The 24-bit master is produced in the mastering of the release and is the highest quality we can provide. We do not do any encoding or compressing of these WAV files.
We get these files from various sources; labels, artists, and distributors, this means there are varying sampling rates. We always offer the highest bit rate we can get hold of.
There is a lot written about sampling rates and which is best, it is always important to remember that: the sampling rate can only be as high as the original recording, and the difference may not be discernible on all stereos, speakers, and human ear.
Please be aware the file size is considerably larger than the 16-bit version and there will be compatibility issues with some music players. 24-bit WAV files will not play and may cause problems with earlier generation iPods and some other MP3 and media players. There is no tagging on WAV files so all track information is indicated using the file name.
We offer the chance to download any lower or equivalent quality formats once a 24-bit format is purchased.
Regional Restrictions for Digital Music
Due to licensing restrictions we are unable to sell some releases in some countries. We are expanding the range of what we can sell all the time.
Digital Rights Management
Digital Rights Management (DRM) are methods used to stop unauthorised usage or copying of media files. Ochre music files have no DRM or copy protection built in – we strongly believe that people should be treated as customers and not potential criminals.
