Sample Live Acoustic (Folk) Recordings encoded in High Quality VBR100

Average Data Rate Track Title File Size Play Duration
please be patient as files download
VBR MP3 - 195 kbps Good Lovin' Woman - Kathryn Warner 3,321KB 2 mins 18 sec.
VBR MP3 - 137 kbps OutWest - Ken Shaw 4,820KB 4 mins 47sec.
VBR MP3 - 137 kbps An Ode to Alf Engen - Doug Wintch 6,825KB 5 mins 09sec.

Have you ever been disappointed by the quality of MP3 files downloaded from sites such as Amazon.com and mp3.com? If so, it’s because virtually all the files on offer have been encoded at 128kb/s, or worse still, 112kb/s, data rates that compromise many areas of performance, channel separation and high-frequency response for example.

One solution is to encode MP3 files so that the audio is delivered at a higher data rate, 192kb/s or even 320kb/s, but while the level of fidelity is increased, so is the resulting file size.

The MP3 tracks offered here use variable bit rate encoding, abbreviated as ‘VBR’. Specifically, they’re VBR100 files. The encoder only uses the amount of data needed to accurately convey the music, so if the content is a simple piano tone, 96kb/s may be used, but then if a whole orchestra joins in, the data rate is greatly increased. VBR100 files can deliver data at as much as 320kb/s or as little as 10kb/s.

The advantage is that file sizes are kept to a minimum (although they are a little larger than fixed 128kb/s files) but audio quality remains paramount.
