music download sites

#37426 3 years, 3 months ago
while reading another thread about virus's i was wondering where people download their music from and if you had any virus trouble.i use the archive and gnomes and hobbits as my dead/furthur sources,ive also listened to sugeermags but never downloaded.in the past ive used limewire but it was prone to viruses.so maybe we can all compare notes and come up with a master list of safe sites for music.thanks

Archive.org, bt.etree.com, lossless legs/shnflac.net, and sugarmegs.org have all been good to me. And have a huge selection of nice recordings.

Demonoid.com is a virus deathtrap don't go there unless you want your computer in the shop

There are some gems at www.jerryradio.com/downloads/(especially the old Jerry / Old in the Way, etc). stash.nugs.net/stash.asp?cmd=shows&artist=1 has a limited selection of decent stuff to download (certainly not as robust as archives or some of the others)

Is there a way to burn some of the longer shows onto multiple CD's ?
some of the sugarmegs stuff is too long to fit on one CD and since they're all one long track I can't figure out how to break them down song by song

any suggestions ?

All of the sites mentioned are good. I would include Traders den. Some community trading sites are more strict about ratio's.
As for splitting a track. I've had to do that, and "Audacity" has a good program for it. There's info, and a link for it here.

i should clarify that. i have gotten some viruses when downloading applications from demonoid (but never music), and my anti-virus software has always caught them and prevented any problems...

bittorrent sites mentioned above are, I think, the best for donwloading. They are legal and you just have to be sure to keep your ratio to 1:1 or better. etree has the best dead related, traders den, Dime and shn (losslesslegs I think?) are great. Never had any problem with them. You just need to be sure you port is correctly set so the people on the other end can "see" your computer, otherwise you can downlaod but you can't upload to others....
