MP3 is the number one search at the various search machines. Here you can find out how the Dubroom deals with this format. Bear in mind that this FAQ was partially written when the MP3 format was brand new so some questions might sound silly but oce they were very relevant and for historical reasons we left them on this page.

MP3

QUESTION
What is MP3?
ANSWER
In short: digital audio that you can download to your computer for later listening, or for burning on CD. You need a 16-bit soundcard and a software player to enjoy them.
As you maybe know, a track on a CD is like a digital audio file. You can convert an Audio CD track into an MP3 file. The result is, that you'll have an audible copy which is about ten times smaller then the size of an Audio CD track.
QUESTION
Does it cost money to download an MP3 file?
ANSWER
All MP3 files on the Dubroom are free, unless it is specifically noted. You can safely download everything that the Dubroom links to, you will not get charged or billed. Sometimes you need to fill in an email address, but you can just put in a false one.
QUESTION
Are the files that are (reviewed/placed) on the Dubroom legal?
ANSWER
Yes. The policy of this site is not to deal with illegal MP3 files. There are other sites who do that. 
QUESTION
What do I need to enjoy the mp3 files?
ANSWER
First, you have to download it to your hard disk. You can do different things with the mp3 file afterwards. The most easy is to use a software player like VLC Player to play it on your computer. You can also burn an audio CD from the mp3 files that you've downloaded. And there are hardware MP3 players. You can burn a CD-Rom (not audio) full with mp3 files, and put them in a MP3CD player. That way you can store hours and hours of music on just one disc. 
QUESTION
I make reggae mp3 files myself or with my band and I would like to be put on the Dubroom. How do we do that?
ANSWER
The first step to that is taken by visiting the LABELS, ARTISTS AND PRODUCERS page right here in the FAQ section.
QUESTION
What is the Dubroom's policy on illegal mp3 files?
ANSWER
As stated before, this site does not willingly link to illegal mp3 files. An mp3 is considered illegal when it is taken without consent of the copyright owners. The Dubroom makes an exception in the case of music that is no longer available. If the music is rare and out of print and put online as mp3, then this is only for forwarding the vibe of reggae music and nobody gets a loss of income because of it.
QUESTION
Which kind of mp3 files do you review/link to?
ANSWER
The Dubroom links to (Dub) Reggae music which has a certain quality that is far above the avarage. There are many artists with download pages, also labeled Reggae and Dub, but they are not what the avarage Dub and Reggae fan is looking for. The Dubroom has built a name in linking to good online music since 1997. It's hard to describe the exact measure according to which the Dubroom decides whether or not to link to the music, so the best is to take a look for yourself.
