Which Is Best – Audio Tape, CD or Audio Download?

Despite how great CDs are, many people still prefer audiocassettes to them, especially when it comes to listening to audio books.


Below are some of the reasons why:


One, Audio books in a CD format cannot contain more than 75 minutes of content but audiocassettes can hold as much as 90 whole minutes (and, in many cases much more) of narration.


I agree you can have the entire audio book spread out in several CDs, but not many people like to carry around too many CDs.


So, while you might need just a few audiocassettes for a particular audio book, you will probably need many more CDs for that same audio book.


Two, most people don’t like to spend extra cash buying CD audio books when they can get the same audio book cheaper in audiocassettes.


For example, while an unabridged version of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” on 12 audiotapes can be bought for just $31.96 on the Barnes & Noble website, the CD format from Barnes & Noble costs almost double that amount – exactly $55.96 for 17 sets of CDs!


Of course, its not that they want to rip you off – it’s simply because it costs much more to produce CDs than it does to produce audiocassettes.


Three, when you turn off your CD player while listening to an audio book, you won’t be able to resume from the particular spot you left off. With a cassette, you can begin from the exact same spot you left off.


With CDs it can be frustrating when driving because each time you turn off your car, it would mean restarting the audio book or trying to locate exactly where you stopped.


Of course there are modern and more advanced CD players that can now save your location when you turn off your car, thereby allowing you to resume at the exact same spot you left off.


This won’t work when you turn off the car AND take out the CD. But it will work with an audiocassette!


Four, because audio books are mainly just narration, many users don’t see why they should spend the extra money to buy CDs because of issues of recording quality when they can get near enough the same quality with audiocassettes.


Their argument is that if it was sound ‘quality’ they wanted, they would go for audio books in CD formats, but sound quality is the same with audiocassettes and CDs when it comes to audio books.


In more succinct terms – the voice of humans (without drums and other musical paraphernalia) has very little to gain from the depth and clarity that comes with digital recordings in CD format!


Things are changing though. With the development of compact playes such as iPods and MP3 players, it’s little wonder that downloadable audio books are fast outpacing the traditional audio tape or CD as the preferred medium. After all, one can always make a ‘hard’ (CD copy) of a digitally downloaded audio book if one so wished thereby having the best of both worlds.

Download Audio Books: Get Into The Audio Book Trend!

The days of storing boxes and shelves full of dusty old hard-copies of your all time favorite novels and literature are over;it is time to get with the audio book trend! This is not the day to be left behind or excluded because you are old fashioned or backward in your knowledge and beliefs. When you download audio books, you have the opportunity to learn and grow everyday, with little or no interruption to your normal lifestyle pattern.


This growing audio book trend is obvious when looking at the sales statistics from recent years. In the UK and Germany, over $120 million dollars worth of audio books were sold individually in the years 2004 and 2005. The sales results for the US for 2006 are expected to be at least one fifth higher than the UK and Europe! Considering their short time on the market, this is a phenomenal popularity growth rate, and it will not be surprising if they eventually overtake book sales all together.


Why are audio books growing at such a fast rate in their popularity? There are a number of reasons for you to throw away the old books and convert to audio book format instead. The first and best benefit is definitely the fact that you can listen to audio books anytime and anyplace. It does not matter if your day is filled with errands and housework, you can still improve your mind and inspire your soul by taking time to listen to a good book. Maybe you take the dog for a daily walk or spend time in the gym? Both of these can be used as opportunities to stay up to date on your reading.


In America, statistics show the average person spends over an hour a day driving or on public transport. There are at least 500 hours a year each person could use to learn and stimulate their imaginations instead of being bored and uninspired, waiting to reach their destination. All you need is your MP3 player, which we all know are light weight, compact and convenient to carry anywhere, then download audio books of your choice. Imagine being amid the hustle and bustle of a busy train trip, totally detached from the stress and discomfort around you as you disappear, listening to a book you love?


With an audio book, you do not need to worry about having quiet, private space to read. You can zone out anytime you like by putting in your earphones and closing your eyes. No noise or activity can distract you unless you want it to, and you can choose to look out at some nice scenery or drift off to sleep anytime. Audio books are also fantastic for those times when you are just hanging around the house looking for something to do or waiting for your next favorite television program to begin. You will be amazed, once you start getting into an audio book, how often you will make time to listen, and how quickly it could even replace other less inspiring activities for you.


If you know anyone who spends a lot of time sitting around doing nothing, buy them an audio book you think they would enjoy. You could initiate a whole new world of inspiration and education they never knew was possible. Whether it is a child you know who is advanced for their age and needs extra stimulation or an elderly person who lives alone or in a retirement village, they will love listening to a good audio book.


It is easy to download audio books as they are available over the internet any time of the day or night. If you are lying awake, wishing you had something to do, why not visit a popular downloadable audio book site and find a book that interests you (possibly even something relating to insomnia!). With so many mundane duties to perform every day, you really should consider it a blessing that you can now find the opportunity to enjoy books when you are so busy. Do not keep your head in the sand any longer but download audio books today to start you on your journey of evolution.

Audio Books: How To Download Them To Your Mp3 Player Hassle Free

Are MP3-technology portable players only good for playing cool tunes downloaded from the net? Far from it. They offer an alternative and a convenient listening addition to audio books on tape or CD.

What used to take days or weeks of waiting for the mail carrier to deliver your audio books on tape or CD, it now takes no more than a few minutes. You can be listening to your favorite MP3 books straight away. And it’s going to get even better, easier and quicker, judging from the giant advances in audio and web technologies in recent months.

The hard-core audiobook listeners may take a while to “convert” from using tapes and CDs to an MP3 format. The sheer convenience, perfect control and the size choices MP3 players offer, the “change-over period” is likely going to be a short one.

So, if you are a budding MP3 book pioneer and want the latest portable audio technology conveniences, they are waiting here to serve you without having to spend a fortune or extra time to do it right.

To download audio books in MP3 format to your computer and over to your MP3 player, look at the exact steps you need to take to do it quickly and easily.

Just note the following instructions use Windows Media Player – Version 10 as an example.
Let’s assume you are already good at downloading files from the web onto your computer.
Let’s also assume that you already own an MP3 player, but don’t know how to do this transfer correctly yet.

1. If you are using an older version of Windows Media Player and need to upgrade, surf over to Microsoft and download it at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download. Follow the installation instructions.

2. Download the MP3 books to your computer. It is a good idea to create a separate folder, say in “My Documents” folder and name it “My Audio Books”. It allows you to keep your audio book downloads all in one location. Done it? Good.

3. Now, connect your computer (switched on) to the MP3 player using the USB cable supplied with your player.

4. Once the connection between the two is live, your computer will show that it has found a new piece of hardware. If it doesn’t say this, just unplug everything in the above sequence and try again.

5. Is it working now? Okay. Open your Windows Media Player and open the audio book MP3 file you want to copy. This will open your audio book in the main display area of Windows Media Player.

6. Add the audio book to the Sync List of your Windows Media Player.

7. Go ahead and click on the Sync tab on the Windows Media Player. It brings you to a pull-down arrow menu on the left-side box of the Sync tab. Make sure you select the choice “Removable Disk (E)”, or the name of your MP3 player as the source where the audio book will be copied to.

8. Do you see a display with the choice to “Start Sync” right now? Great! Go ahead and click on it. Once you’ve done this, the Windows Media Player will let you know that it’s sending the audio book to your MP3 player.

9. As soon as the sync (or copying) of the audio book file is complete, you can check to assure it is on your MP3 player. See it there? Excellent. One more step to go.

10. To finish this process properly, ensure you click on your PC’s hardware icon (found in your system tray – in the right bottom corner – usually a small icon with a green arrow) to “Safely Remove Hardware”.

Don’t remove the USB cable until you get a clear signal saying “Safe To Remove Hardware”.

Removing the USB cable without following this step may damage both your computer and the MP3 player.

Note:
Are you using an older version of Windows Media Player? Even so, you can still follow the steps above. The only major difference is that instead of having “Sync”, you will have “Copy” in the menu. You can click on it and follow the same steps above to have your audio book copied to your MP3 player.

If you have a portable MP3 player that uses a drag-and-drop file method instead of Windows Media Player synchronization, then the steps are easy to follow. Simply connect your player to the computer as above. Open the player’s window by clicking on its name or on “Removable Disc (for example E or F) under “My Computer” icon.

Then, open the MP3 books folder (the location where you have them saved) in a separate window. Keep both windows open side-by-side. Now, left-click, hold and drag the audio files over to the open window of the portable player. Once you release the left mouse button, there will be a short file-transfer moment. Done? Now, your MP3 books are on your player, ready for you to enjoy listening to it.

So, can you play back the audio book from your MP3 player now? If you have followed the steps, you should hear the audio book playing on your MP3 player. If you have difficulties, you can watch an easy-to-follow video that shows you how to do it at http://www.mybigaudio.com/help.html .

How to Find & Download Audio Books your Ears Will Love you For!

Discovering a specific audiobook title or audio books on a particular subject or from a certain author is a perfect example of an areas which the Internet has made so much easier and quicker.

Even very obscure and specialist subject audio books can be located with relative ease – If you know how top go about it…Interviews with ex slaves from the post US Civil War south…Yes, they are there and you can get them if you want to listen in. By comparison mainline romamtic fiction, thrillers and business audio books (for example) are dead easy!

25 years ago if you were searching for a particular book you’d have had to visit a book shop or Library and might have spent hours searching through a huge collection of books, files and catalogues especially for rarer titles – with no guarantee of finding it, even with the assistance of the shop assistant librarian. And if it wasn’t in stock then hard luck you’d just have to wait.

BUT THOSE DAYS ARE GONE! Now you can simply use the Internet to find whatever information you want.

If you are looking for a particular audio book, you can just visit any of the major search engines like Google and type the book title you are looking for with the word “audio book” included. This will immediately steer you in the right direction.

Alternatively, you can get the particular audio book you are looking for by going directly to bookstore websites. Some of the best bookstores on the Internet include: Amazon, Audible, Barnes & Noble and franchisee’s of audio books to download specialist SpokenNetwork.

These online audio book stores have special facilities on their sites which will enable you to find the specific title you are searching for.

The procedure is very similar to using the search feature on your favorite search engine. However it is more focused and way faster, as it is searching only the database of the particular bookstore rather than the wider and less focused search across the entire database of websites.

To try it just visit any of these online audiobook stores and enter the title and/or author name you are looking for. If the site is one that does normal books and CDs etc. Also, if they sell products other than audio books be sure to include the term “audio book” in your search query.

If you exhaust these options and are unable to find that audio book that you are looking for, visit one of the many book forums on the Internet and ask for the advice of other book enthusiasts.

Or try communities like Squidoo, Hugpages and LiveJournal where enthusiasts for just about anything you can bimagine hang out and share..well anything! You’ll be astonished that there are many people out there who know a lot and are willing to share.

Going deeper than this there are also huge numbers of specialist websites with audio books, samples, interviews, spoken word and poetry on a simply giant range of subjects.

The example I gave at the start of interviews with slaves does exist. Others include out of copyright audio books, political transcripts by the million and endless amateur recordings of popular works some of which are superb. There are thousands of these sources and I have listed many on my site.

From London, Nick now lives in Sweden Lena his wife, and Gunnar a fluffy Border Terrier. He likes long walks which he combines with learning Swedish from audio books. He runs Myaudiobookshelf.com where you’ll find 8000+ audio books to download and links to a vast but little known network of free audio book websites. .Sign up to his email list or download an audio book and you’ll get the full list.

Where To Get Sound Effects Free Download

Sound effects are great add-ons to websites and projects. Some might find these sound effects quite a hassle to add, while others think that sound effect are just mere irritants. However, many have overlooked that fact that great sound effects will help to differentiate between the normal, mundane looking websites with the outstanding and spectacular ones. Why let your website become an ‘average Joe’ in the World Wide Web, when you can make it look and feel amazingly different just by using good sound effects?

But of course, not everyone is blessed with a good budget and we all know that websites and projects already require quite a large sum of money to undertake. So, when you are tight for cash, should you still consider adding great sound effects to further enhance your work? The answer is definitely yes, with a big capital Y.

Here is the trick: Most people get their ideas from songs or movies etc and when they are choosing the kind of sound effects that they want, they will usually look for the kind of sound effects that are copyrighted from these songs. But these are copyrighted material after all, so there is no way you can use these songs, unless you are willing to pay for the license. This is definitely not the practical way out.

So, the next step will be to search for any form of FREE downloads. There are plenty of them on the Internet, but the problem as you will soon find out is that these downloads simply sound terrible. Just because they are free, they tend to sound cheap and adding them into your projects will definitely not be a good idea at all.

What you can do however, is to search for royalty free sound effects download. The reason why people love to use royalty free tracks is because these tracks are one in a million. Like a music track? Then download it and it will be yours for use. If you are looking for music sound effects that are somewhat similar to the Batman theme, then you can also find one that is royalty free!

Using royalty free sound effects in your projects would spare you from the fear of being in trouble with the cops. The reason is simply because these tracks can be used over and over and over again over, indefinitely many times! You can even tweak it and make it shorter or loop it to make it sound like a full 3-minute song. As these tracks are royalty free, you as the purchaser will have the right to use it as you wish without any restrictions.

There are also other places for you to download free sound effects such as Limewire or any other P2P (peer-to-peer) networks where music files are shared. But the problem with this is that you will not be able to view the tracks before downloading and you will realize that you will end up with a dozen or more lousy sound effects.

Why waste your time and effort when you can actually have the close-to-real thing easily using royalty free music. And not to mention, you will not need to worry about the quality of these tracks or sound effects, as you will be surprised that some of them are actually composed by experienced music directors and composers.

Royalty free music is cheap and easy to get too. You will be assured of a full 100 percent satisfactory listening pleasure if you use royalty free music.

Using Free Sound Effects Download To Enhance Your Projects

To use or not to use? That can be a daunting question that most project managers might ask themselves. If you are a webmaster and are creating a new website for your client, it can be pretty challenging to decide whether or not you should embed free sound effects into the website. There are of course several points to note if you wish to do so. For example, whether it will affect the time it takes for the page to load, and whether the sound effects will be appropriate for the website. While you might still be pondering with this, read up on how using free sound effects download can help to enhance your mundane looking project into a spectacular one.

There are plenty of reasons for using free sound effects in your projects. It is just part of our human nature to be attracted to things like music and actions and that is also the reason why advertisements that appear on pop ups tend to work better than the ones that are just plastered over a website. So, in a way, using free sound effects will help to get people’s attention the very moment they enter your site.

The only critical part to using these sound effects is choosing the right ones that suit your website’s identity. Sound effects form your websites’ and projects’ identity. For example, if you are setting up a new website that is meant for kids, then most probably some adorable cartoon sound effects would fit in well. You can also choose to experiment with various other sound effects and see how you can you them interchangeably between pages.

The only thing that you have yet to figure out is choosing the most reliable website where you can get all your sound effects from. This can be quite a challenge as not all the sound effects that are available off the Net would sound as good as you thought they would be. Some of the sound effects might have been recorded and re-recorded many times over, hence affecting the sound quality. If this is the case, then you are definitely going to have a pretty tough time choosing the right kind of sound effects for you.

Otherwise, you may choose to use Limewire or any other Peer-to-Peer (P2P) network site. But the only problem is that most of them do not allow any form of previewing and some of these sound effects are just trash and they do not sound good at all.

What thousands of people have been doing to solve this problem is to use royalty free sound effects. Are you new to this? Well, basically anything that is royalty free can be downloaded and used over and over again many times without the need to worry about any copyright laws. This is definitely the best thing about royalty free sound effects. Use it, cut it, loop it and make it sound totally different. It is rightfully yours. This is definitely not the case for the copyrighted tracks that you might have wanted, for example the Superman music theme.

And not to mention there is abundance of royalty free sound tracks out there for you to use, so there is no way someone is going to have the same track as yours!

Ray Barthell is an internet audio specialist providing royalty free music at http://downloadroyaltyfreemusic.net. Be sure to download free sound effects

Video Streaming: Can You Download Streaming Video?

The sad truth is that there is no way to download streaming video options.  Many people are disappointed when they learn this, especially since there are so many places that will offer streaming videos to individuals.  Sometimes, there are websites that will require a fee from members in order for them to view the videos that the site has to offer, but they will offer streaming videos on the website.  Many people may think that they can download streaming video clips, but this is a misconception.  Streaming video is not a medium.  Rather, the medium is the video, but the method of how the video is offered to the general public is streaming.  Streaming is something that is constantly being offered or played for anyone to view.  Television stations that are on twenty four hours a day are streaming.  Just because you turn your television on during the day does not mean you are recording, or downloading, the video.  That is how streaming video works, and why the ability to download streaming video does not work.

However, there is an alternative solution to the problem people may be having when they want to download streaming video.  There is software that they can purchase of download which would allow them to save the video or videos that they are seeing, which can save them money in the long run, especially if the individual is paying for a website that only offer streaming videos and they understand that they cannot ever actually download streaming video clips. 

Many different websites will offer streaming videos, and others will offer videos of another types that you can actually download.  However, these are not streaming videos and they will take longer to start up.  This is because the information has to load before it can play, when the video is a download.  However, when the video is a streaming video it starts right away and is connected immediately to the origin point.  If a person is setting up their own website with videos on it, it will be very important that they know that they cannot offer to their customers that they would be able to download streaming video clips off of the website.  This cannot be done and customers will be less likely to go to the site if that claim is made, since it is not possible and this will likely drive experienced website users away.  However, streaming videos have their own benefits and are very quick and effective.

These benefits can be played up since they are very advantageous to a lot of people that are looking for effective and efficient videos from websites.  Offering videos is often very nice for people that are looking for different mediums besides the written work on the internet through which they can learn information.  The exchange of information is sometimes done faster through video, and the result can be that there is more of a connection between the individual and the topic in the story that they are learning about in the video, versus if it was written out.  Sometimes images are just more powerful than words.

Why Should You Listen to Download Audio Books?

There are many different types of audio books around these days, literally something for everybody. Whether you prefer to be engrossed in a spooky tale, a romantic love story, a side-splitting comedy or a gritty crime story, there are thousands of audio books that you can choose from.


There is a lot of difference between reading and listening. Listening makes you feel that you are there and you can enjoy the story more. Perhaps, listening to audio books can bring out the best in books compare to watching films that based on the same books. You can relate to stories in books better using your imagination, something that cannot transfer from books to films (acting, directing, and mostly censoring of films make films somewhat distort from their original books.) If you have never tried an audio book, you really should give it a try!


In some ways, audio books are even better than traditional books. If you want to buy a particular book, you have to traipse around the shops trying to find it or order it on the phone or online and then sit at home awaiting the postman. With an audio book, you can download it immediately. You can decide what book you want to listen to and be listening to it within minutes. You can relax, shut your eyes (something else you can’t do with a conventional book!) and be absorbed in the story. Many audio books feature sound effects so you feel like you are really there.


You can play audio books over and over again and it does not get scruffy like a conventional paper book. An audio book can tell a story much better than a printed book. Imagine hearing a book being read by its author who is reading his words like they were meant to be heard. The characters really come to life in an audio book. If you lend someone a book, you might not get it back. To lend someone an audio book, you just need to copy it onto CDs or a DVD.


You could enjoy the biography of your favorite actress whilst walking the dog or washing the floor. You could listen to a gritty crime drama while driving home from work or in your house. You can relax wherever you are and enjoy your audio book and you can listen in total privacy on your headphones.


There are many other types of audio books apart from fiction. You can learn a foreign language, for example, using an audio book. A conventional book does not explain properly how a word is supposed to be pronounced. You could brush up on some Greek phrases for your vacation this year or learn some handy French or Spanish. Listening to a native speaker pronounce those words and phrases is a million times better than reading them in a book and guessing the right pronunciation.


If you fancy giving up smoking, losing weight or increasing your willpower, there are hypnosis audio books available and they have been scientifically proven to work. You might want to consider audio books for your children so you can either listen to the story together or have lights out early and let them drift off to sleep while listening to their favorite fairy story or exciting adventure.
