Download Questions (Members Only)

How do you deliver downloads?

We deliver single ZIP files that contain each session’s mp3 files. If you haven't used a zip file before, it’s quite simple. On most computers you can just double-click on the zip file to extract it to a folder containing the session mp3 files, and from there you can drag them into iTunes or whatever library you use.

If double-click doesn't work, try right-clicking on the zip file and selecting the appropriate option from the menu that appears.

If your zip file didn't download, visit the Session page and try again. If you’ve tried that and are still have problems click this link to contact us.

Where is the session zip file after I've downloaded it?

The session zip file is stored in your browser's Downloads folder. For most people this is your PC or Mac's "Download" folder, which you should have no trouble finding.

What kind of files am I downloading - mp3, flac, alac - and what bitrate?.
