I was downloading from a guy with the username steve50@KaZaA, he had a very fast connection, and every song had beeps in them. It's obviously how "The Man" is flooding kazaa and other p2p's with fakes, the titles are all correct and well organised and so easy to find, and the speeds i was getting were amazing. I just wish people would delete them when they realise they are spoiled.
Although, that said, it doesn't bother me, because i only want to see if the songs are any good then i delete those mp3's within 24 hours before i rush out to buy the album
Does anyone else agree there seems to be a surge in the number of fakes?
And please - no suggestions to join the soulseek thing, i considered it, but my collection is ripped at 128kbps and most of the posts i've seen talking about it say you guys want 192kbps at least. Even songs i get at higher bitrates i convert to 128kbps to compromise on quality and space, i know there is a difference in quality, and sometimes it is noticeable, but you'd be lying to yourself if you think stuff at 128 sounds terrible. i'm not that bothered, what matters to me is the quality of the music itself, not the quality of the recording, as long as it's decent - AND WITHOUT BEEPS AND FADES!!!!!
have fun kids
