Once this has been completed, Aureobel will e-mail a confirmation with a link to the invoice in a seruce (https) server.

What happens to my current downloads if my computer's connection to the Internet is interrupted?

If for some reason your initial album download is interrupted during transfer or an album does not download completely, our download system keeps your order open until the download has fully finished.

In the event of an interruption, the album that is interrupted must be fully downloaded again. The download system will keep track of what is downloaded and maintain the listing of your pending downloads.

What happens if I lose my file?

In the unfortunate event you delete and lose one of your downloaded music files, we will be unable to re-deliver a file to you. The initial file you download is associated with all of the rights to burn CDs and transfer the file to portable devices. If you delete and lose this file you may be unable to do any of those functions.

What file format do music downloads come in?

Music downloads from Aureobel are MP3 files. Aureobel's high quality MP3s are encoded with Lame (alt-preset standard, 44.1kHz) and using the VBR setting (max bit-rate 320 Kbps). Variable Bit Rate encoding means that the bit rate will vary throughout the duration of the recording. During silence the bit rate will be as low as 32kbps (all the data required to describe silence) and when the music is extremely complex it will be as high as 320kbps, ensuring no detail is missed. We use this format because it offers superior sound quality.

Why is the MP3 file shorter than mentioned?

With some media players the duration of the mp3s might be incorrect, but there is nothing wrong with the files. Reason for incorrect duration is that some mp3-players don't read time correctly when the VBR-setting (Variable Bit Rate) of mp3-format is used.

How much hard drive disk space do I need?

Each album downloaded will occupy approximately 50 to 80 MB of disk space. To check on how much disk space you have available, open "My Computer" and then right-click on the hard drive where you will store your music, and click "Properties" from the menu.

Do I need a high-speed Internet connection to download music?

We highly recommend you have a high-speed Internet connection (DSL or Cable Modem connection recommended), but it is not required to download music.

Can I play music from Aureobel Downloads on my Apple Macintosh® or Windows® computer?
