MP3 Information

    MPEG layer 3 is a type of audio codec where processed by significant compression from the original audio source with very little loss in sound quality. The compression up to 12:1 produces very little degradation. Tighter compression can be achieved, but it will effect in sound degradation results. To obtain certain compression, we must adjust the bit rates. The standard bit rates (near cd quality result) is 128 or 112 kbit/s.

    Virtually any song you can think of can be downloaded from the web in the mp3 format. There's an ongoing controversy over the legal issues regarding the posting of these files, but I'm not going into that. You can easily create custom cd's from downloaded mp3 files that will play in any cd player. All you need is a cd burner and the software (see MP3 Tools below) to convert the mp3 files to wav files. Never download mp3 files with less than a 128 bit rate or the sound quality will be undesirable. Also listen to the entire song before converting to wav to assure that the song is complete and that the mp3 file is not corrupted.
