Owning JR MC for some time now, an offer from J River came to me via email recently indicating a free download from HD Tracks was available to all currently registered MC owners. The sampler download was in 24/96 pick the format of your choice, FLAC, AIF, WAV.
if its free its for me
I refused to input my CC info when requested as it was a FREE download. I had to do the wash rinse repeat thingy too
several times. OK their download manager in my firewall, etc
Ultimately, I got all the tracks involved. Although at the time, the download mgr. was working unbeknownst to me as it ran in the background.
I sent along an email about the whole affair and the issues I encountered along the way
Ive not received a response yet. Its been a couple weeks now. I dont expect one. I dont expect Ill return to HD TRACKS for a while yet either.
A large number of the albums I was interested in proved to be unavailable for HD file purchase too, even though it was indicated previously as available
the following page said otherwise.
HD Tracks dot com had some issues then and might still it seems. Im not keen on spending $$$ where I cant reach out and touch someone there in some format
. Especially if the process has any noticeable shortcomnigws during the process.
I think itll be quite some time before these HD TRACK SITES get as smooth as the itunes store process, or have anything like the variety itunes offers
. When they do however
At $2.50 @, things should be quick and easy and smoothly done
and intuitively simple for the end user things shouldnt make sense to only the folks who made the site.
. Rhino is even worse to navigate
so I never even got around to joining up or buying any of their stuff.
