Audio Information
File type Software needed
The mp3 is a highly compressed wave (.wav)
file with cd-quality sound. A music track
uses about 1 MB a minute in the mp3 format.
WinPlay3 V2.0 for Windows 3.1/95 or
MacPlay3 for MacOS PowerPC
The MIDI files are mostly computer generated
reproductions of original music. These files
are smaller than digital music recordings, and
have integrated plugins in the Mac and Windows OS.

RealAudio files are streams of audio which can
be played while brosing the net. Compared to MP3
files the sound quality is noticeable poorer,
but then the files are fairly smaller offering
the chance of broadcasting. In most cases realaudio
files can only be played while browsing and not
be downloaded.

Records of Illegal Origin. These are recordings
released without the bands knowledge or approval.
Important to keep in mind before purchasing RoIOS:
Albums such as these differs highly in quality,
which is mostly due to the origin of the recording.
Some times sound technichians will sell private or
rejected studio recordings for a profit, other times
it might be a simple tape recorder in a concert crowd.
The price of RoIO's (also known as "Bootlegs") is
fairly high compared to original recordings, which
means they will never take the artists own market
away. Buyers are most likely to have several original
recordings before purchasing RoIO's, and I myself
tend to look at them as a way of "almost being at
the show" only 20 years later. In Norway RoIO's are
legal to sell but illegal to exhibit in stores.
Check out the Pink Floyd RoIO Database
for a comprehensive review of all available RoIO“s.
Visit the Pink Floyd RoIO MP3Archive
for Pink Floyd RoIO MP3's.

The sound files are samples of early Pink Floyd music. I suggest you respect
the artists work and effort by buying the original recordings when discovering you like it.
