Few audio details for non-techies

ipodFew words about our audio tracks- an MP3 format, encoding, DRM, ID3 tags, sound

We use a MP3 format for our Bratislava Audio tour.

MP3 is a most popular music format and it can be played on any computer, PDA and some mobile phones. Naturally, you can also play our tour on standalone MP3 devices such as iPod and iPhone from Apple, Zune or any other MP3 player.

Our MP3 files are DRM-free.

Digital rights management (DRM) are technologies which provide an access control for digital media. In other words, if you want to play the music file, you need to download also the license. Otherwise, it will prevent you to access, copy or convert the purchased MP3 or the other music file. We strongly believe that when you buy our MP3, you should be able to use it without any restrictions. Therefore no DRM protection is applied on our MP3 files. On the other hand, if you want to support this project and help to keep it running, please use our store for MP3 purchase. We do not make this activity for living but we need to charge some minor fee to cover the necessary operational cost and to support future updates. Any donations and sponsorships of the project or the particular tracks are welcomed, you can use our contact form for more details.

MP3s are encoded in 128kbps bit rate

This should guarantee a decent sound quality for the speech while keeping a MP3 file relatively small. Tracks include ID3 tags defining the name, genre (Speech) and the name of album. MP3 are deliberately created in monophonic (mono) sound. You should hear a same sound stream from your left and right headphone so you can share your headphones with your friend or partner when you walk around the Bratislava points of interest.
