We’ve received a lot of enquiries from people who don’t use CDs, and who want to buy downloads. We intend to make downloads of all of our discs available eventually, but it’s taking a long time to set this up. However until then you can buy audio files of any Another Timbre discs by emailing info(at)anothertimbre.com and we will send you the music as either flac or mp3(320) files.
Files cost £5 per disc, or £10 for a double CD.
