Information about Sound

I have uploaded Yosakoi Matsuri Sound Music. I recieved a sound tape of the music for Kochi Credit Depository Team by courtesy of its creater. I digitized it to .au sound format. Since the size of the au file is much larger than I expected, I also made a RealAudio format version. The sound quality is a little bit worse than au, but the file size became much smaller. The RA file dosen't use RealAudio server, the browser will download the entire file first, and be played automatically.
