Your download is available instantly, in addition to being emailed to you. If you didn't receive an email, please check your spam box if you did not receive an email with your download links. If for some reason you missed the download links after checkout and did not receive our email, contact us and we'll get you the links within 12 hrs (and usually much faster).
Our download system is very reliable (Amazon S3), but sometimes it can take up to 5 minutes for your download to be processed and emailed to you. You will have 3 opportunities to download your sample library with no expiration. Our downloads go smoothly 98% of the time! But you can always contact us and we will help you out within 24 hrs (usually less).
All of our libraries are zip files. With a Mac, you'll only need to double click the file to uncompress it. With a PC, you will need a program such as Winzip. If you find the file doesn't uncompress, it means it became corrupted during download and you should try your download again. Once uncompressed, you'll see our sample folders / files, which are all 24bit, 44.1 KHz WAV files. We chose 44.1 KHz over 48 KHz because it is a slightly more popular sample rate; anytime you convert sample rates there is the potential for minor distortion, and we aim to limit these instances as much as possible.
