About the MP3 Files at CandyRat Records

Clips and Radio

All MP3s for both samples and CandyRat Radio are FM-quality. This allows you to sample many artists without unnecessarily high download and page load times. Purchased albums are of much higher quality, as described below.

Purchased Albums

When you buy an album using the MP3 option at CandyRat Records, you can be assured that you're getting the highest quality files. Every CD is converted to high-bitrate MP3s using full error correction. This results in files that are transparent - most people would not be able to distinguish the MP3 from the original in a blind test. This is much higher quality than most downloadable MP3s which are typically encoded at 128kbps.

Compatible with iPod and all portable music players that support MP3.

Here are the technical specifications:

  • Extractor Utilizes Full Error Correction
  • Files are 320kbps CBR
