Downloading purchased sound files from Audio Network

Once you have made your purchase and your payment has been accepted you can log into your online account to download your sound files.

  • Click on the view box to the right of my orders.
  • You’re then presented with a summary of all your orders.
  • Click on the view arrow on the right of the order you wish to display.
  • You will then see your complete order track by track, and an option to download an Mp3 or WAV file for music tracks, or Mp3/AIFF file for sound effects.
  • You can then choose either to download tracks individually by clicking on the WAV/Mp3 icon or all together.

To download an individual file click on the Mp3 or WAV/AIFF icon, and select ‘save’ to specify a location (e.g. desktop) to download the file. Choose ‘open’ to save the file to your temporary internet folder and play it with your computer’s media player.

To download all or several files at a time

check the boxes on the relevant tracks and then click on ‘download selected files as zip’ at the bottom of the list. There are select all/deselect all mp3 and select all/deselect all WAV buttons at the bottom to help.

NB: WAV files are quite large – typically 30-40mb each – and so it’s not ideal to zip more than three or four of these together at a time. Most broadband connections seem to have an undefined download limit, and in our experience attempting to download more than 100MB of data in one go will just result in a blank screen.

Downloading AIFF files to Macs

Occasionally when downloading AIFF files to a Macintosh the machine doesn't recognise the file type and so assumes it’s an Illustrator picture file and gives it the file extension .ai, which your music software won’t recognise. If this happens, simply rename the file extension to .aiff and the machine will then recognise the sound file.



Download FAQs

Q: Can I only download the sound file once?

No, once you've paid for a sound file it stays in your account permanently and you can download as many times as you need.

Q: What’s the difference in quality between a WAV/AIFF and an mp3? 

Mp3s are much smaller file sizes (approx 1mb per minute of sound against approx 10mb per minute for WAV/AIFFs). They are high resolution 192kb/s mp3s, and should suit most requirements. Standard iTunes music downloads are at 128kb/s. Mp3s are quicker to download and because of their smaller size, easier for your editing software to manage.

Q: Why are full quality music files in WAV format and full quality sound effects AIFF?

Whilst there isn’t an industry standard for music and sound effect files, we did a lot of research when launching the library and discovered that the majority of editors prefer these formats. If they don’t suit your requirements there are lots of different sound file conversion applications available. For customers who take out blanket licences with us we can supply hard drives with all the music files available as either WAV or AIFF.

Q: Why are the music file WAVs coded at 44.1khz and not 48khz?

Again, the majority of users prefer 44.1khz, but we do have hard drives available with 48khz WAV files for customers who take out blanket licences with us.

Q: My question isn’t here. How can I contact Audio Network?
