SoulBeats.net has a wide variety of products available for the music
in our catalog. The following describes those products in detail.
MP3 - MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 files. This file type has
created quite a stir in the music industry. MP3 files were the first to
deliver near CD quality audio in a file that was small enough to transmit
through the Internet. When MP3 files became available it became possible
to distribute music digitally directly to consumers' computers. This file
type is currently the most popular method of downloadable music delivery. There are
many portable players that support this format as well as a large selection
of software for playing and encoding MP3 files. Get a player
here to play your MP3 files.
