Unzip ANY Type Of Zip File With Ease... Perfect
For Unzipping Backing Tracks Or Any Other Type Of
Most people who are familiar with downloading things from the
internet will already have come across zip files many times.
Even if you're not familiar with zip files you've probably downloaded
lots of stuff from the internet which was zipped and don't even
know it because many computers download and unzip the files automatically
A zip is basically just a 'container' which is wrapped around
the file you're downloading to make it easier for your computer
to manage. Think of a jar of instant coffee. The coffee is inside

once you've downloaded your files, they can be unzipped by simply
double-clicking on them. Your computer will then reveal the mp3
Just remember to play the the mp3 file in you media player, not
the original zip file you downloaded(!). Most music media players
won't play an mp3 file while it's still inside its zip.
In the unlikely event your computer encounters a problem unzipping
your tracks, there's a free unzip program called 7Zip that I can
