Maximizing Your Music Downloading – 7 Practical Tips You Must Know

Posted by meek1 on February 19, 2007

These are tips that seem logical yet it is surprising many music lovers online are unaware of how to download music online safely. Some have been scammed and are skeptical. Hence, these 7 pointers not just to help you locate a trustworthy music download site but also cover other essential aspects we often overlooked.

1. Choose trustworthy download sites.

In other words, a safe environment for downloading.  You don’t want your data to be erased by viruses from the sites you paid to download your music. Avoid dubious sources that offer free download. 

Free sites still need income to maintain their sites competitively. So you may be downloading bundled adware and spyware when you click on these sites to download your songs. Then you will have non-stop pop-ups irritating you to no end. Do consider sites those voted as top ranking sites or even the No. 1 site by MTV, CNET, CNN, GOOGLE and the like.

2. Internet Connection Speed

If you had a dial-up connection like I once had, then you would understand how downloading online music can be extremely slow, so slow that once I almost pulled my hair out when the only the introductory music at the start of the song was downloaded and the connection promptly stopped!

None of us have such extravagance of waiting several hours just to download a few songs. Do seriously consider switching to broadband if you wish to get the most out of unlimited downloading of songs.

3. Pricing – Maximizing Your Subscription

Source around and compare the prices of downloading music online. Some websites charge on a per download or monthly subscription basis while others charge a flat rate.  It is common for most music download sites to offer life time membership. If you need an avalanche of songs most of the time, seriously consider the one time payment for Lifetime Membership option.    

If there is a Live Customer Support, then  it is even better!I must emphasize that although I am focusing mainly on music/songs here, I would also urge you to consider a downloading site that offers not only music but movies and even games. It is better to be spoilt for choices than to be restricted in your selection.

4. Maximizing the Genres Available

This is what I call the KIV selection. Yes, numerous websites offer a rich variety of genres that you at present enjoy. No problem in choosing those sites to download. But what if your tastes begin to vary, say from Pavarotti to oldies, hip hop to Christian rap? So it is wise if you select a site that offers almost countless genres. Leave your options wide open. Afterall, you paid for the membership!

5. Compatibility of Your Player and Song Formats

I know that with software applications such as Winamp or Windows media player, MP3 files can be played either on our pc, laptop or on specialized players like the Apple IPod etc. Some MP3 audio files could even be played on the latest DVD Players and CD players. Now you can download from MP3s to PSP is using a USB cable that connects your computer with your PSP.

Nonetheless, do not just assume you can convert any files from the site; it is just not worth the time and can be quite hazardous.

Do not also presume these files are compatible to whatever gadgets you are using; you even need to ensure the mp3 files are compatible with ALL mp3 players even with iPod, lest you use a new player in future! So do check the functions of your digital portable player music file formats, wav, MP3 (the most common) etc from the site you intend to download.

6. Quality of Online Music Downloads

This aspect is often glossed over. We all want to enjoy and relax at our favorite tunes, so crystal clear digital sound is a must. While it is hard to determine and discern this aspect, reviews from current users sure help a great deal.

7. Burning on CDs and DVDs

After some time, you may want burn your song collections a CD or DVD, so it is imperative that to study the instructions of different sites. You will benefit from sites that support burning of CDs well if you are downloading a large collection as CDs are comparatively more affordable than DVDs. If you do not compromise on quality, then it is DVD for you. Remember to get a high speed burner too. View a trustworthy site here.

MP3 Music Download

Downloading music online can be so enjoyable and easy! As my expert friends don’t have the patience to teach any newbie, I will share some personal tips  (maybe no big deal to aficionadoes and experts though) which I meandered and sauntered my way for a while in the past. Hope most of us can just Download, Play and Burn!

First things first, let me just caution you with the number 1 downloading rule: Choose trustworthy download sites.

You wouldn’t want a spyware or adware to be placed on your desktop computer or laptop etc. Much worse is the least desirable: viruses. Being the meticulous (read: paranoia) person that I am, I searched for good reviews and found MSN, CNET, CNN etc rating this site as the Number 1 site for Unlimited Music Downloads.

If you are like me who enjoy different genres from jazz, rock, Christian rap, instrumental, hip hop to rap and the like, you should choose a one-stop site that offers a huge variety of choices that spoils you. The site boasts of a “15 Million Songs, Fast Downloads” for mp3 songs downloading, mp3 file sharing, even thai and chinese songs mp3 download, music video download…

Guess they have many sheet music downloads too. Why don’t you explore and let me know?While you download, free bonuses like Firewall Software, Pop-up Blocker, Media Player, Antivirus Software, Adware Removal Software are up for grabs too! It sure is cool! 

Listen to some of your favorites now!
