What are credits used for?

Credits are used for unlocking recordings so that you may download them to your computer or device. You don't need credits to listen to recordings on RhinoSpike.com using the built-in audio player, but if you want to download the file for use offline, you will need to use a credit to unlock it.

Credits can be used to unlock any recording, whether it was requested by you or another user. Once unlocked, they stay unlocked permanently and can be downloaded at any time from your collection.

You do not need to unlock recordings that you have uploaded yourself, those may be downloaded without using credits.
