Do people still buy cds or do most people download mp3 online?

Do people still buy cds or do most people download mp3 online? Topic: Use case sourceforge net
July 20, 2019 / By Irvine
Question: I just read a tip on being more "green" and it said to stop buying prepackaged cds and download music online. I also heard that some people convert all cd music to mp3 and sell cds. Is that wise? I just bought my first ipod last about 2 weeks ago. I converted some of my cds, but I don't know if I want to sell them. I love mp3 technology, but I also like the cds inserts and the lyrics. Just wondered what other people thought. I also have many records and cassettes. I heard that there are devices that change records into cds and mp3, but I would probably have to rebuy cassette music.

I buy vinyl records because they sound better and can be converted to CD or mp3 for the car, etc... You can convert vinyl or cassettes to digital simply by hooking up your turntable or tape deck to the line-in input on your computer's sound card using a stereo 1/8" (3.5mm) plug to dual RCA cable. Use freeware recording / editing software to record a record or tape in CD or mp3 quality and split the songs into separate CD or mp3 tracks. A turntable would have to be run through a phono preamp or a receiver with a phono input. In that case, run the tape outs from the receiver to the line-in jack on the computer. There are USB turntables... or separate USB interfaces that a turntable or cassette deck can be plugged into if your computer doesn't have a line-in jack (most laptops don't) or a good-sounding sound card. This recording / editing software is very easy to use. It's shareware, but on the honor system. It's fully functional and there's no time limit. http://www.milosoftware.com/cdwave/ Audacity is a bit harder to learn, but it's capable of removing record pops or tape hiss. It's also free. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/ This is a decent USB interface... Any tape deck will plug right in. No adapters necessary. A turntable and phono preamp may be plugged in... or the tape out from a receiver that has a phono input with a turntable plugged in. http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--BEHUCA202 There's also a USB interface with a phono preamp built in. The phono preamp can be switched on or off. A cassette deck or turntable can be plugged straight into this device and the USB cable goes to your computer. http://www.amazon.com/ART-USB-Phono-Plus-Interface/dp/B000BBGCCI/ref=pd_bbs_1?ie=UTF8&s=musical-instruments&qid=1211007693&sr=8-1

Fabian Originally Answered: Why do people compare white people to african american people?
I know exactly what you mean. You know what'll happen if a black person says something bad about white people- we're all suddenly racist toward them or outspoken. Ha. Unfortunately, black people are still not allowed to have individuality. If one of us is bad, we're apparently all bad. But you know what? You don't need the approval of ANYONE who thinks that way of you. Ignorance will never go away unless those who are want to get educated. Well, educate them by beung yourself and not giving them the time of day. Time is precious, and these people are not.

I havent purchased a cd in about 4 years. I download. But surprisingly i live in ny and virgin megastores are always super packed with people buying albums. I go in to look at what new releases are out. but your right it is more green. I use to love my cd's and inserts too trust me I've had my cd's since the 3rd grade... but now I'm 25 and realized that stuff just takes up useless space. Those cassettes you can download with bittorrent. P.S. - CD Collection 100+ Mp3 Collection - 21,000.... Full Albums!

I personally prefer to own the full album with the cd, case and insert booklet with cover art, but I also download songs for the convience and to save money. I would never sell my hard copys of my music collection though, I still have all my Vinyl, Tapes, CD's, and I listen to them all.Your music collection is like a coin collection, you save the old stuff, rare stuff and you use the rest. Buying, ripping, then reselling would be a great way to add a lot of music to your collection cheaply and isn't a bad idea if you don't have room for all your cases.

I love mp3s, but if there's an artist I really like then I buy the whole cd for example I downloaded the new Cobra Starship cd and then had to buy it because all their songs are amazing

I buy used cds and convert them. It's cheaper than downloading from itunes and since I am recycling other peoples cds- I am going even more green... Kermit would love me.
