Detailed Instructions for Downloading MP3 Sound Files


To download an MP3 audio file from any page on this site:

Look for the “Download this MP3” link, just below the playback bar, as highlighted in this illustration:

Note:  Every browser seems to handle this operation a little differently (natch), so below are instructions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer.
TIP: keep this page open in a separate tab for reference while downloading a tune.

Chrome:

FIRST: Click the ‘Download this MP3’ link and the tune will start to play in a new tab in a black screen with one of these controls in the center, depending on your version of Chrome:

Image A

Image B

 

 

 

 

SECOND: If image A, click the download arrow, , and a ‘Save-as’ window will appear.
If image B, Click the three dots at right,  and then “Download” and a ‘Save-as’ window will appear:


In this example, I’m saving the tune ‘Chantiers’ to my Desktop.  You can choose any folder on your computer as a destination but I recommend your desktop as the easiest place to find it. You can file it from there later if you wish.

THIRD: Click the Save Button.

If you’re using Amazing Slow Downer or a similar program for practicing, I also recommend you create a specific folder for the set of tunes you are working on.  For example I create a folder such as “Fall Concert Practice Tunes” and save or move all the tunes I’m working on for that program into it.  You can then make Slow Downer (or whatever program) refer to that folder.

Firefox:

FIRST: Click the ‘Download this MP3’ link and the tune will start to play in a new tab in a black screen with these controls in the center:

SECOND: Click anywhere inside the playback bar to see this menu:

Then click on “Save Audio As…” and an “Enter name of file to save to” window will appear, similar to this:
