WHAT TOOLS DO I NEED TO UNPACK RAR FILES?
The following are tools you will need to unpack my files after you download them.
WHAT IS FLAC?
Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format for lossless audio data compression. During compression, FLAC does not lose quality from the audio stream, as lossy compression formats such as MP3, AAC, and Vorbis do. Josh Coalson is the primary author of FLAC.
FLAC reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without sacrificing the integrity of the audio source. A digital audio recording (such as a CD track) encoded to FLAC can be decompressed into an identical copy of the audio data. Audio sources encoded to FLAC are typically reduced to 50–60% of their original size.
I have decided to try adding FLAC files on NEW POSTS ONLY, however if it becomes a problem I will no longer offer this format. Please do not ask to have older posts re-uploaded in FLAC format it is too time consuming. I may re-post some archives at a later date in FLAC format. Pease DO NOT post these files elsewhere on other blogs, torrents etc. To playbck FLAC files I suggest that you check out the links below.
One thing that should be mentioned, though: if you keep a large collection of digitalized music, it is convenient to store them on a separate external hard drive in case your computer crashes or fails, like they do so often these days.
Some links on the subject you may find useful:
