Legal, Free Way To Obtain Music

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone else besides me has figured out the BEST free, legal way to obtain music.

 

All you need is a sound card and an internet connection.

........................................................................

 

 

What you need to do is find an internet audio stream (such as realplayer or realrhapsody or windows media player or winamp or the band's website or........)

 

and then you open up whatever sound card bundle software came with your card

 

switch record setting to either mixed or record master

 

hit record

 

play the audio stream

 

stop recording when done

 

enjoy legal, high quality (not to mention FAST) way to obtain music.

My mom made me call an attorney to find out if it was legal and he told me yes, it was as long as i didn't sell it.

 

 

Who needs 2 mess around with illegal P2P servers or wait for downloads or search on the various mp3 sites for the file you WANT

(i e: mp3shits.com. altavista.net audio search, mp3search.com, espew.com, sirfindalot.com mp3 search, airmp3.com..........)

 

If anyone is interested, my old 16 bit sound card is sitting in the closet and i'll put it on ebay for you.

 

I know so much cuz I might become a recording engineer.

Yeah, I went with big, fast HDs so I could listen to everything as WAVs. With a good soundcard + nice headphones/speakers, it makes all the difference.

internet audio streams arent the highest of quality either

RealRhapsody, which I used (months and months of free trials) until they got smart on me has EXCELLENT streams

The Featured RealAudio streams are excellent (so are most music videos)

Also bands' websites feature streaming audio and some are dumb enough to put entire albums on. Once Windows Media Player featured the entire of the Beastie Boys' new album, To the Five Boroughs, and I was ecstatic.

I called an atterney that dealt with technology and copyrights. This is one of the very few legal ways to bootleg.

when a band puts their whole album on their site, which happens quite often, i believe you should have full right to download and burn 1000000000 cd's and even sell them if u want... it was GIVEN to you
