KUTX Live Vol. 14 cover art by Rex Hamiliton
Getting your digital copy of the latest Live Volume from KUTX is very easy. If you selected download as your thank you gift, refer to the email you received from our membership folks and click on the desired link(s) included in that message. You will have three choices of file formats for the music, AIFF, FLAC and MP3. All tracks in these formats are ripped from our master copy of the volume.
AIFF files are CD-quality. AIFF files are much larger than MP3 files because they are of higher quality and equivalent to a mastered CD. The MP3 files we provide are high-quality copies encoded at 320 kbps. FLAC, Free Lossless Audio Codec, is an audio format that doesn’t sacrifice any of the musical information from the original source. FLAC’s lossless just like AIFF, but compresses into a slightly smaller file.
All the files also contain album, song and other data. Your computer may play them with iTunes, Windows Media Player, or one of many other audio players. The AIFF and MP3 tracks will also play on your iPod as well as most MP3 audio players and mobile devices. FLAC files presently aren’t supported by Apple.
The zip files include all the tracks from the CD. Click on the link to begin the download. Your computer will either automatically download the file to your Downloads folder or you will be prompted to make a choice to Open, Save or Cancel.
Once the zip file has downloaded completely it may prompt you to open it. If it doesn’t, locate the KUTX-Live-Vol-#-MP3.zip, KUTX-Live-Vol-#-FLAC.zip or KUTX-Live-Vol-#-AIFF.zip file and double click to open. All songs from the CD that we received permissions to make available as a digital copy are in this one file. When you open the file they will extract from the zip file, likely into the same folder on your computer, and you will be able to listen to them.
About KUTX Live Volume 14
It’s been over a year since we were able to enjoy music in Studio 1A but that didn’t stop us from bringing you intimate performances. Here are some of our favorites of the past year, captured from a socially safe distance in the Austin area and one (Arlo Parks) all the way from London.
Wanna SEE these performances? Find the full video playlist here.
Big thanks to our Live Music Team: Deidre Gott, Michael Minasi, Jake Perlman, and Jorge Sanhueza-Lyon, and to all the artists for keeping us sane during this un-sane time.
