Infamus Software has released two MP3 tools for musicians, AlbumWrap and AlbumWrapExtractor.
AlbumWrap will select any number of MP3s and condense them into one bandwidth-saving file, while retaining file information including track and artist names.
The company says: "It allows artists to wrap an entire album into one neat file, while providing relevant track and copyright information."
The application is compatible with Napster and costs $15. If adopted by Napster, the technology will reduce the bandwidth time taken to download MP3 albums, and enable Napster's music-business partners to offer entire albums at non-punitive download speeds.
