Frogs, Frogs, Frogs!

Frogs - the masters of natural rhythm! This album presents a symphony of talented amphibians from around Australia.

Hear green tree frogs in tropical rainforest, choruses in celebration of summer rains, and polyrhythms eminating from bush waterholes at night. Singing frogs, whistling frogs, laughing and clicking frogs... they're all here and on the beat.

A soothing, hypnotic and fascinating album to delight the frog-ophile in you.

Amphibian Fascinations - 'Frogs, Frogs, Frogs!' nature sounds album

Frog choruses are very appealing, and make some of the most musical of nature recordings. Which is odd in a way, because frogs have very little vocal expression. Sure, they make great noises, but they...

Customer reviews of this album

I adore what I have heard of your 'music.' Can't decide which is my favourite - 'Rain in the Forest' or 'Frogs, Frogs, Frogs!'

Kate

A big thank you for the frog CD. I can now have frog sounds in my garden even though I do not have any. Maybe this cd will help attract wild frogs into my garden.

About the audio formats

Mp3:

Mp3 is a universal audio format, playable on iPods, computers, media players and mobile phones.

Mp3 is a compressed format, allowing smaller filesizes, offering faster download times and requiring less storage space on players, but at some expense to the audio quality. Many listeners can't really hear the difference between mp3 and full CD-quality audio, and hence its convenience has lead to it becoming the default option for audio.

Our albums are generally encoded at around 256kbps (sometimes with VBR), balancing optimal audio quality without blowing out filesizes excessively. We encode using the Fraunhoffer algorithm, which preserves more detail in the human audible range than the lame encoder.

Our mp3 files are free of any DRM (digital rights management), so you can transfer them to any of your media technology. You've paid for them, they're yours for your personal use without restriction.

Mp3 files can be burned to disc, either as an mp3 disc, or an audio CD after converting them to a standard audio (.wav or .aif) format first.

FLAC:

FLAC is a high-quality audio format, allowing CD-resolution audio. It is ideal if you wish to burn your files to a CDR, or listen over a high resolution audio system. However files usually require special decoding by the user before playing or burning to disc.

FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is a LOSSLESS compressed audio format. This means that it preserves the full audio quality of a CD, but optimises the filesize for downloading. Typically, file sizes of around 60% are achieved without any degradation or loss of audio quality from the source files at the CD standard of 16bit/44.1kHz.

Obviously the file sizes are larger than for the mp3 version - usually around 300-400Mb for an album, compared to 100Mb for an mp3 album.

In addition, you'll need to know what to do with the files once you've downloaded them. In most cases you'll want to decode the files to wav or aiff, either to import into programs like iTunes, or burn to CDR. Some programs will play flac files natively.

There is a lot of information about flac online (eg: http://flac.sourceforge.net/)
