ALBUM, AUDIO, VIDEO, eBOOKS & SHEET MUSIC FILE FORMATS para Español oprima aquí
An album download is a zip file containing MP3 files, one per song, AND a pdf file with full scans of all CD artwork, liner notes, credits, front and back covers (whatever was submitted with the album). We strongly believe that its important to make the CREDITS available for each album (wouldn't you want your name along with the MUSICIANS credited on your work of art?). These MP3-VBR (.mp3) audio downloads are delivered as zipped files (.zip) in order to ensure that your browser does not automatically try to open or play the tracks during download. All tracks are properly tagged with the track name, number, artist and album.
All audio tracks are encoded in audiophile quality MP3-VBR audio format. MP3-VBR (Variable Bit Rate MP3) format is compatible with all digital players (both hardware and software) including the iPOD. In a double-blind test subjects could NOT tell the difference between the MP3-VBR (with alt-present standard settings) versions and the native CD audio of the music they were most familiar with. Read the full article here. Every audio track loaded onto the site is ripped in native .wav format and thoroughly tested against the original master disc. The files are then encoded with a LAME 3.9 encoder with an "--alt-preset standard" setting for MPEG 1 Layer 3 (.mp3) variable-bit-rate encoding. This file format is known as MP3-VBR, which is currently the most stable and highest quality lossy audio compression scheme known today. This method allows the music itself to decide how much compression is to be used, meaning the dense musical passages of the song are not as compressed as the sections with the most silence. The term "variable" comes into play because bit rates of 128k, 160k, 192k, 224k, 256k and 320k are used during compression. This special type of mp3 files are compatible with virtually all hardware and software players that play standard (non-vbr) mp3s (to date LatinPulseMusic.com has found no exceptions). Some players, most notably the older Windows Media Players, will not display the length of the track correctly for an mp3 file of this type (the WinAmp and QuickTime players, for example, do not have this problem). In order to maximize cross-platform playback capability, LatinPulseMusic.com also reserves the right to offer and compress audio files at a fixed rate of 256k.
Sheet Music and eBook files ('Charts') are made available via our custom 'View to Print" system. Click here for a full description.
Video downloads are also delivered in zip files. Once unzipped these video files are optimized for computer playback and viewing on the following software players:
- WINDOWS: Windows Media Player, DivX Player, VLC Media Player
- MAC: OSX versions of Windows Media Player, DivX Player, VLC Media Player
FILL YOUR iPOD with LATIN PULSE MUSIC
Audiophile quality MP3-VBR files are fully compatible with the iPOD (iTunes 4.1 and later can also encode MP3s using VBR). All tracks are properly tagged with the track name, number, artist and album. Though not recommended, you can fit more music into your portable MP3 player by converting any track to a .wav file and compressing (encoding) to a lower bit-rate.

Brief outline of the Agreement:
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: Why are the revenues split 50%-50%?
Simply because we provide some kick-ass technology on our content-rich pages. Take a moment to compare one of our pages (artist page sample here & album page sample here) with iTUNES or CD Baby. Do they have a dedicated artist page for you? Do they have your sample tracks, along with your photos, videos, ringtones and digital sheet music on the same page? No. Also compare the money breakdown. To get your stuff on iTUNES, which charges 30%, you'll need an aggegator -a service that hosts and/or loads your tracks into iTUNES- and they in turn charge 15%. So compare that 45% total to our 50%. That's just 5% more for all this dedicated web space and functionality. You decide.
