Gun Horse Records Album Download FAQ
I got my killer tracks! Now what?
When you purchase the download, it sends a download link to your email. (Cool!) You’ll get a compressed (windup) file as the download. This is the compressed audio files.
I just downloaded an album, how can I unzip it?
Full album purchases are stored in a .zip format, meaning they’re compressed and have to be “unzipped” before you can burn them to CD or import them into your media player.
Depending on your operating system, unzipping the files should be as simple as just double clicking on the downloaded file. You may need to follow some prompts to select the location of the unzipped folder or click the “Extract All” button in newer versions of Windows.
Should I choose to “save” or “open” my file?
When asked what you’d like to do with your download, you’ll want to select “save.” Regardless of whether you download a full album or a single track, you’ll want to actually save the file to a place that’s easily accessible (like your “documents” or “my music” folder) before importing it into your media player. The default location for downloads in windows is the “downloads” folder (which can be found in “my documents”). The default location for Mac is the desktop.
Will digital downloads work on my operating system?
Tracks, as well as albums when unzipped, are standard MP3 files, Apple Lossless, or Source .wav files, and will be compatible with any platform, browser, or media player that supports MP3 playback.
How do I import track into iTunes / Windows Media Player?
In most media players you can import music by simply dragging and dropping the MP3s into your music library. Just open both iTunes and the folder that your music is stored in. Select the files you want to transfer and drag them to the “Library” in iTunes. Alternatively, you can click “file.” If you’re having trouble, check your player’s help section for specific instructions about how to import audio.
The MP3s downloadable from this site are made available for your personal, non-commercial use only. Download them to your computer, put them on your mp3 device and rock out, but please don’t upload them anywhere. We work hard for the money,.. honey.
