Folders + Winamp. I've read Winamp doesn't offer the best audio quality, I've tried Fubar2000 for a while, but it's way too complicated. I find it so much easier to organise my folders directly in Windows
Never really was one for FLAC 320 is fine for me. Although saying that I cant say I've heard the difference between the two formats
Neither. There are times when I have heard oddities and wondered if it would sound better in FLAC. For me, it is more about not having to ever convert anything. I have some classical music and musical scores which I listen to through Quick Look but it doesn't support FLAC, yet. I have some .oggs lying around too.
I just downloaded spotify because my mom called me to let me know she got a family subscription I need to learn to use it on my PC. It's been nice on my phone the last week but it'll be tough to beat itunes - if only because I'm so damn used to it.
ITunes because I have the best music player ever made (Ipod classic 120gb). I do miss legacy iTunes with the big old artwork in the corner, new versions have been lame. And seriously do they make a new update every week?
I use MusicBrainz Picard for my tagging and organisation on my PC. Also Shuttle+ on my phone for mobile playback. I cut the Spotify cord at the start of the year. It spells the end of buying records and/or maintaining a mp3 library for many people.
I just rep folders and play most of my music through a usb stick in my car. Is there an alternative to iTunes or online playlists like spotify? I want a simple program where i can build playlists without dragging them out or copying them across from their file location?
I tunes all the way, my house is entirely Mac based so everything is shared from my phone to my computers to my tvs. I hate that they change the formatting of it every year, but I always adapt and see that it was for the best
