Where do you get your music?

So I just got my first Ipod.

I know finally right!?

I got Itunes on my comp but do you guys seriously buy all your music? Or is there a place you download it all for free then put it over on itunes? I'm so clueless.

Help!

Pull out your map and take a look for "the bay where pirates hang out". They can hook you up. I collect a lot of vinyl though, so usually I get my vinyl, "rip it" and make .FLACs. I love that gentle hiss and pop of vinyl.

PS: if you like it, buy it. Or go see the artist live (if possible).

I use limewire sometimes, but for the most part, if i really like the artist i'll suck it up and buy it of Itunes. I want to support the artist so that they continue making great music

Torrentz are the best illegal method.


I use Amazon MP3. I don't like downloading via iTunes due to the protections / format / etc.

youtube downloader is an easy way as well, takes a little more time, though.

I suggest you sync your ipod via winamp, no protection issues with saving your music that way.

uTorrent + ScrapeTorrent (searches all major torrent sites at the same time) has worked wonderfully for me. Also, between my brother and I, we own a few thousand CDs that were purchased legally.

I can't belive people still use Limewire. That site sucks and is full of viruses. Not to mention it's illegal. Though rare, they do bust people and serve large fines.

My suggestion - Legally Purchase and Download Cheap Mp3 Music - Iomoio.com. Songs are about $0.15 and you can get entire albums for $2. Oh, and it's legal and virus-free.


I also copy friends libraries. I have about 40gb of music right now and several movies and shows on my 80gb Zune.

Apple and their protected MP4's suck!
