    NO DOUBT.

    Here's a photo of the_seaker re-calibrating
    one of her bank of external hard drives. Each
    mainframe holds over 40,000 GB - or approximately
    9,000,000 MP3's. SHIT IS REAL.

    Try to keep no more than about 30 gig worth on my pc until i get round to sorting out an extrernal hard drive. Means that I have to spend a lot of time cropping the collection which makes me cry a little inside.

    Only 1,613... all but about 5% are ripped directly from vinyl and they're almost all soul/funk/pre-1995 hip hop. Making MP3s from vinyl is laborious and I really have to be feeling the track to put in the work. iTunes says it's almost 5 days' worth. I would think that once you could go one month without repeats that would be enough. Then again, many of us should probably have enough vinyl, but that doesn't stop me from bringing home even more stacks of records now and then.

    I know a few people who rip all their CDs in their entirity. To me, that's too much filler. I made a good chunk of my MP3s when I knew I would be away from my records for a couple years. Now that we're reunited, I hardly rip down vinyl that much anymore. Although if it was as easy as converting CDs, I would do it regularly.

    Some impressive numbers listed above. Would love to peep what some of you are listening to because the tastes must be broad and eclectic. Still, even though I appreciate all genres of music, I really don't want to open that pandora's box. Last thing I need is to go broke trying to build a deep bluegrass collection or a blues collection. Even collecting straight jazz has me shook, so I try to limit myself to heavyweight material only. This collecting shit is nuts.

    well, a SS last fm group would do it - the site aggregates out weekly and monthly artist & song charts for the group, I was a bit ehh about it at first but have found it to be strangely intriguing, my user page is here


    just imagine how much various people would get paid out on ...

    Try reselling that on ebay.

    There should be a graemlin for that!

    I own about 10 records on MP3. And some sound clips. I don't know why, but I don't seem to be a music fanatic. I like records. I like finding and buying records I don't know. And most importantly, I like digging. I'm not sure if I like music that much though. I love Jazz and funky Rock and Psychy Rock and some Funk, but I'm not into hearing every single record that other people talk about. I like to check MP3s of records that I always wanted to find, but I barely download those clips. I still don't know why.

    PS: I don't hate MP3s. I think DJs playing MP3s are cool. As long as they actually can DJ and play good music.

    so true...thats one reason i started gettin mp3s, like with my latin addiction i was able to get a decent overview of whats outthere and what was released in the 60s-70s, must-cops etc. its a great way to get into new things, ill buy them on wax anyway if i really like it, thats how mp3s should be used imho.


    my coll would be like:

    80% = latinjazzbrasilrarefunksoul&soundtracksspokenwordpsychgaragepunk

    20% = all the rap i dont want to spend money on

  • says the dude whos always requestin some mp3s on the dj premier forum

    Do you really think I need to request MP3s when I have every song he have produced on vinyl. 100% complete. I even had to press some of the stuff that isn't on vinyl, to vinyl, just to keep it real.

    I used to be a heavy MP3 downloader, it was insane. Compared to others, I probably don't have a hell of a lot. But I have a spindle of about 100 CD-R's, all filled with various things. I am going to give it away, but who would want it?

  • vajdaijvajdaij 447 Posts
    According to iTunes, 16372 mp3s, 70.7 days of audio, or 125.03 gigs. e-dick++, right?

    No idea, I'll trust you on that one. I don't use iTunes nor have an iPod, and yet I create podcasts. Go figure.

    My collection is kinda of weak, 400+ .wav files from my records.. 126 MP3's..

    Jeez... another episode of the Pookeyblow Keeping it Real Show



    I have about 700 here at work, 500 at home ripped from vinyl, and only another 1000 downloaded. I never used to keep mp3's I downloaded after I got the record. Damn, I could have saved some serious ripping time right there. Oh well.

  • johmbolayajohmbolaya 4,472 Posts
    You do that a lot.

    You got it, dude

    You know you knew.

    Well let's be honest, one doesn't NEED[/b] an iPod to play MP3's. I did host an online radio show for awhile, and in terms of convenience, MP3's are great. The listener on the other end doesn't care too much. But outside of what I receive to review or if someone needs a song that I have, I don't do the heavy MP3 downloading that I used to. It makes it easy to hear the song immediately, but it makes me want the record or CD even more.

    When I make podcasts, I do it directly from vinyl, CD, or a lossless file so that it will be of decent quality when someone downloads it. I don't want people to hear that "shard" sound.

    Mr. B****y, I wish I knew what I did. But perhaps by not knowing, I did it again, like Louis Armstrong?
