Combining several files into one for ftp

    I am downloading, via ftp, a set of 17 individual drum tracks to mix as stereo.

    I'm using Firefox, since Cyberduck doesn;t seem to be able to access the relevant online folder.

    I can only download one track at a time, not the folder.

    Is there a way to combine the tracks into one file losslessly?

    Google the "sitesucker" app. Might work, if the files are also accessible as a directory via http.

    Otherwise whoever posted the files would need to create a zip.

    I gave up Cyberduck. It's worth getting something like Transmit for more serious ftp.

    +1 on Transmit (from a 15-year Fetch user).

    isn't that lossy, john?

    I downloaded 'sitesucker', which doesn't recognise ftp:// addresses

    peter, john, Transmit just opened one eye, reached out a lazy hand, and delivered the files to me as a batch. Now on my favourites list :)

    Good you got the files, Transmit is great. Zip isn't lossy, and probably wouldn't compress audio much either, but would make a single downloadable file.
