Monday Carrousels

02009-09-27 | Music | 6 comments

Live at the REH in Florida. The Trio + String Quartet plays Carrousel. The original recording can be found on the album La Semana.

You can download the high quality 320kbps mp3 file here.

And for those of you who have a high quality Digital-to-Audio-Converter, and can therefore listen to HD files (HD files are 24 bit and 48, 88.2 or 96kHz), I have more. You can download Carrousel, from the album Up Close, in form of a 24bit/96kHz FLAC file here (122MB file).

As I have mentioned before, unless you are using an external DAC, your computer will play back the FLAC, but will dither and downsample to 16/44.1kHz. There are several free apps that play back FLAC (free lossless audio codec), e.g. Songbird, which is open source and available for Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems, and VLC. You can also use one of these free apps to convert the FLAC file to an .AIFF or .WAV file, which you can import into iTunes. Again, without an external DAC, iTunes will play back an HD AIFF file, but will automatically dither and downsample to 16/44.1.

And, since Up Close is a binaural recording, you have to use headphones to listen to it.

Too complicated for you? Just click on the triangle above and enjoy the music. :-)
