Caveat Emptor! (read this!)

This show is in .flac file format.


Why not mp3?

Well, as you may or may not know, mp3 compresses the audio data. This means some of the frequencies are cut out to enable a small sized file. Of course, in physical terms, that means you lose many high and low end sounds.

Because almost all live shows recorded by an audience member are not comparable in quality to a band's live album, the last thing you'd want to do is make it worse by cutting half the sounds out, right?

That's where .flac comes in. It's a lossless audio file format, so whatever was on the tape, that's whatcha get on your CD... It's a smaller filesize than .wav, so we can keep the downloads at a reasonable size, but still present shows to you in the highest quality.

That's why I'm be using .flac. Only the bestestest for Die Kreuzen!


Learn more about .flac with this handy guide/FAQ....

 What is .FLAC?


"Trader's Little Helper" is a multi-purpose audio tool which has .flac plugins that allow you to use .flac with Nero and VLC MediaPlayer amongst others. It also lets you decode .flac files to .wav, so anyone can burn the shows featured here to CD-R.

Don't worry, you won't need to be Bill Gates to figure it all out!
