    Downloading question


    I tried to find the answer to my question on here but was unsuccessful. When I hit the button to download it just plays the sound I’m trying to download. 1. If it’s downloading; where is it putting it? 2. If it’s not downloading the sound but just playing it; how do I download it to my cell so I can use it for the project I’m working on?

    Hi there

    To download a sound you have to right-click on the download button, then select "save target as" or "save link as" depending on your browser, this will prompt you to save to a location on your hard disk.

    This is not true for downloading 'packs' however, you can regular left-click to download the zip file.

    I hope this helps

    Ah, I see. This can be tricky for iPhone and iPad devices, not so much for Android.

    This web page will explain one way of doing it:

    Alternatively, try using the free web browser app eDL Lite which allows you to direct download from a media link instead of just streaming.

    Good luck!
