    I know this is the height of wishful thinking, but, is there such a thing?

    Don't tell me Firecat and Primrose are to cynical even to a look and explore a new world of possibilities.

    using torrent to get unlicensed music is as bad as P2P

    That does depend on the laws of the country in which you are resident. In Canada, for example this is a completely legal act, as we pay a levy or ALL recordable media (HHD, CD/DVDs, Flash, VHS/Casette, absolutely everything), which is distributed to the various industries (ie music/movies - but does not apply to software of any kind), so in fact we pay for it regardless. This is the solution those industries sought and got, but now they seek to have their cake and eat it to. While I certainly don't agree with piracy of any kind, and there surely is better solution some where, those two industries certainly won't guide us to what's just; only to what serves them better. They have unfortunately priced themselves out of the market, and consumers don't need too much incentive to circumvent the rules. It's a sad state, but it is what it is. :doubt: The debate will certainly rage on. Eventually, if consumers don't buy products, there won't be anything on the selves to buy or steal.

    It's a quagmire for sure.

    From the standpoint of risk of computer being infected with malware, the risk of being prosecuted, or the risk of going to hell? Please elaborate. I don't know anything about bit torrent, although it appears that some freeware distributers are experimenting with it.

    (I forgot to include the risk of downloading classical music to the list)

    Dog-

    This is probly not relevent, but it still fries my bacon. I hate when the damn technology of the recordings change and you are more or less forced to dump your music collection and buy a new medium.

    I tossed all my vinyl records.
    I tossed all my audio cassettes.
    I tossed all my video cassettes.

    so I'm sitting here listening to CD's when I hear about SACD, and DVD-audio.

    Okay, i have a compatable dvd player so I run out and get a couple of albums. Wow the qualitiy of the audio is amazing, but the disks cost even more than CD's. I, and probably a lot of other people are saying...hold on, i'm not buying these yet again. Combine that with the fact that if copying a CD bothers them, how much do you think the industry wants to put out a far superior sounding product that can be copied? It's too bad that many, if not most people, will never even hear what we are missing out on. Sound so good you'd have to have a serious hearing problem not to instantly recognize the difference! There a few I might buy if available, but i'm not holding my breath!


    I've not had a chance to listen to SACD. I imagine they are good, but sony does have a way of exaggerating new technologies they come up with. Anyone compared SACD to CD and DVD-Audio?

    I certainly agree with you. ;) This industry in particular is a mess. It's something that won't be addressed over-night and quite possibly never. Some serious thought needs to be focus on completely rewriting the books, to both protect the consumer, and the artists / industry. It's all the more difficult now because the music industry choose not to be involved with newly available technologies as they began. They've also created an adversely relationship between the parties, where there isn't much love or trust. So there isn't any kind of starting point, it's truly sad.

    you know something? you can configure your router/firewall to simply block all incoming pings. Easy.
    Don't remember if torrents work after that.

    How can you put the likes of Primal Scream and Eminem etc., etc., in the same sentence and context as the word Music??.....Surely that has to be a contradiction in terms....... :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Personally, I favor ancient rock clacking music, but it isn't always easy to find.

    You can hear some classical rock clacking in The Cars song "Since You're Gone"

    You can't beat a couple spheroidal pieces of granite.

  22. I think public enermy or egleast chuck D released a whole album for free to download on there website. Isaw it on a program about them so you could check there. Usuauly go to the bands website or there record label and get what i can for free there or iother music sites. www.purevolume.com, the music section on download.com that is surprisingly good they have 3 atreyu tracks up there www.roadrunnerrecords.com have quite alot. Most artists you can get one or two songs by in my experiances.

    lycos have an mp3 search engine http://www.music.lycos.com/ wehtre it still works i duno another is www.emp3finder.com not sure wether thats still up.
     
  23. oh i forgot to say arnt there also tools you can get that allow you to record streaming music. If your on broadband you could sue that. It may not be at cd quality but you cant knock it if its free. I dun oif the software is fre eor not i know you can get it for winamp and things.

    you can use/get - streamripper32, RipCast Streaming Audio Ripper and StationRipper. and i think you are right there are some plugins you can get - Winamp etc. but, i don't think they are legal; your IP can be reported to your ISP.

    did anyone try?

    it is brilliant, the very first search i did was for "little fluffy clouds" and the version i wanted was, i think second in the results and i played it straight away :)

    Hello Ms. Iceni-

    Very good ideal! I never even thought of that. I am so put off by advertising that the first thing I did when I installed comcast was to uninstall all the services, and delete all the bookmarks and radio buttons. More than likely it is even relatively free of advertizing.

    Oh yeah, I was going to say: Illegal? How could it be illegal to own a piece of audio software. And how could my ISP possible tell if I were recording. The audio streams to everyone tuned in, but that doesn't mean they are recording. Maybe if you were doing through your browser plugin they could tell, but there are much better ways to record anyways that would be through sound card or bridge.

    Anyway I'm sure the RIAA goons are happy if they have a fresh batch of grandmothers and schoolkids to sue.
