Music is not only food for love it is also balm for the mind and soul. The good news for music lovers is that music has gone digital all thanks to the compression of audio files. Audio compression is a form of data compression designed to reduce the size of an audio file without compromising on sound quality. This means audio files can now be compressed, transmitted and stored more easily. Now you can not only enjoy digital music on your computer, you can even boost your listening pleasure by simply transferring the music from your computer to your mobile phone and in a matter of minutes your tunes will be ready to follow wherever you go.
