Frequently Asked Questions
Q: 1 - I ordered some MP3 files and they have not arrived. What is the problem?
A: The system is fully automatic. As soon as your payment has been processed, you will receive an email from us confirming the tracks you have purchased, a receipt email from Worldpay and the tracks appear in your account. The download procedure is as follows:

2. Log into your account online
3. Right click on the first download link in your order.
4. Select ‘save target as’ and navigate to ‘MBT Tracks’ The track will download to that folder.
5. Go to ‘MBT Tracks’ and rename the track to its title.

You can then add that folder to ITunes or Windows Media Player and make CD’s etc.,

Q: 2 - I've just bought a track and downloaded it, but its only a few seconds long. Can you please correct this?
A: The short download occurs when your internet connection goes off for a split second during the download.
All you need to do is to locate the short track on your hard drive and delete it. The file has a number, not a name and will be found in your default download folder.
If you don’t delete the the short track then you will receive the short track again, as it is stored in your computers memory.

A: They certainly do! We never use fade outs on any of our tracks.

A: All our tracks are in the original key, unless otherwise stated. If you need to change, you could try the MP3 Key Changer software featured on our home page.

A: Our mp3s are 128kbps mp3 files. Later additions to the catalogue are at 192kbps. The CDs are .wav files and play on any CD player or computer.

A: Information on whether backing vocals are included or not is in the catalogue and on the site.

A: The previews should work on all platforms, but if you are having problems please let us know your operating system and browser and we will investigate.
Q: Can I download the tracks directly to an IPad IPhone or Android device.
