I'm up to around 60 gigs now, how about the rest of you?
About 70% of that is MP3, the other 30% is AAC.
85GB consisting of: 18GB FLAC, 52GB Vorbis, 8GB Musepack, 7GB MP3
I haven't purchased any music in a while, so my collection is very small, at 3 GB.
( ﾟДﾟ) I listen to old rock and alternative from the 90s
32 gigs, all MP3. 128kbps MP3 encoding is plenty good enough for me, so I don't see any need to bugger about with obsucre formats.
27 gigs.. 192 kbps mp3. some are higher or lower quality. pls note that I have a very varied taste in music :D
3.1 gigs on my hard drive, mostly 256kbps mp3.
and about 200 cds...
217, mostly cue-flac and some mp3. not below 192k because I like my ears.
No one owns physical music here?
I've got about 70 gigs on my computer (90% mp3, 5% ogg, then random flac, m4a's and such)
I own physical music, 80 CDs or a 100ish. But I never listen to the actual physical CDs. I rip them upon purchase, and keep the CDs as a backup for my collection, in case of corrupt hard drive or so.
>But I never listen to the actual physical CDs. I rip them upon purchase, and keep the CDs as a backup for my collection
I buy 2 or 3 new cds a month. Rip them for listening to on the train/etc, but when I'm listening to music at home (and I'm almost always listening to music when I'm at home) I have the actual disc spinning in the stereo.
I only buy CD's from artists I really, really like. As in, the whole album is awesome, and would be worth having in hard copy.
TaQ - ongaq:stromatolite
not very large per say (only ~900 MB, mostly mp3s) but i've only had this computer for a few months and my collection is very diverse, everything from Green Day to kurdish folk music, from Rachmaninov to korean sanjo.
30-something gigs. i've also got a lot of cds i haven't bothered ripping. probably never will.
Around 6,000 songs...mostly mp3, and m4a
I've got 56 GB of MP3s, and an awful lot of FLAC, APE and TTA files that are eating the rest of my harddisk space.
48.9GB consisting of mp3, flac and ogg in that order.
2.6 GB; 562 songs total
Ah, around 120 gigs, including my real CDs. mp3, ogg vorbis and FLAC, with some random albums in musepack and even some game soundtracks in unprotected WMA.
I'll say one thing: backing up that much is a fucking chore, even with rsync.
2.84 GB, all in MP3 format.
I'm pathetic, shut up.
About 50 CDs' worth in FLAC, then a lot of mp3s because mostly now I listen to stuff downloaded legally online by indie artists, and that tends to be mp3.
dunno about the size, i'm not at home. but it's mostly MP3 - some is still FLAC because I downloaded it that way, but I'm getting around to converting it. lossless is nice and all, but I just don't have the HD space.
>>26 I'd recommend using Musepack or Ogg Vorbis then, as they give a better quality to filesize ratio than MP3.
30GB, mainly gotten from soulseek or ripped by myself. Both MP3 and OGG
400+ albums, 100+ vinyl, 200+ CDs, rest mp3 and 4 cassette tapes
20 gigs, all mp3 except for the 2 kill bill OSTS which are in flac
1gig, 15 or 16 thousand and some odd tracks, all in .spc
There is some mp3 (eek 6 gigs), but I only listened to that in my slightly younger but not young enough days.
most are mp3's, like 0,5% are FLAC/AAC/MP4/asdafd
8.25GB of MP3s D:
Most of it ripped myself from CD, maybe a handful of downloaded albums
Relatively small, but it's growing!
550 vinyl albums
75 gigs MP3's
60 DVD concerts
I have about 10 gigs of mp3s.
Winamp sez 89.31 GB (11305 files), but it's wrong. So, +2 DVD's of mp3s, about 20 CDs I haven't mp3d, and maybe 75 records (I'm still figuring that one out, I've got a line from the record player to my audio card but it only comes through really quiet...). I'd guess an even 120GB, if it were all mp3.
11 GB, mostly 192-320 mp3's, 1-2 ogg albums, and 2-3 flac albums
>>38 my dad had the same problem. I think he fixed it by putting an amplifier in between. if your stereo has in/out connections, that's fine. (I guess you already knew that anyway :)
jesus you guys have alot lol, i only have about 20gig, and only like 20 cd's :/
12 gigs on the Mac, mostly Apple Lossless with some MP3. 4 gigs on the PC, all Ogg Vorbis.
All tagged properly
almost 1 TB, all mp3
i have about 300 lps and eps. i had at one point around 800 but i sold most of it. and i have about 200 CDs that arent scratched up, god knows how many demo tapes.
as for mp3, i dont have many.
7.1G, some mp3's (Stuff from friends), a lot of xm/it/mod/sid/whatever other tracker format files, a lot of uber-quality ogg files (CD's I have and ripped myself). Mostly tagged properly so amarok can work it's magic.
2.35 gigs, not included is unorganized singles 'n such.
Almost all mp3, some windows media ripped by Media Player.
500 CD's, small amount of mp3. Mainly due to CD buying addiction.
P.S All CD's are original.
24 GB, mostly 320 kbps mp3. I cannot understand how anyone can't hear the difference between 320 kbps and 128 kbps. It's phenominal.
14 GB, mostly in mp3 and ogg. Maybe 3 or 4 albums in flac. I only rip/download mp3 albums at or above 192kbps.
Second post here
I just aquired about 300 megs of gym
Ys3 and Valis one make up the overwhelming majority of that 300 ('A` )
a couple of hundred cd's i've bought over the years and around about 80gb of mp3's i've downloaded off slsk and various other places.
2gigs in my HD and another 60gigs in my ipod. mp3 downloaded from all over. and couple of burnt CDs of bootlegs and whatnots.
10GB, WMA,MP3 and some OGG files. I have yet to rip all my cds.
i have about 80 gigs of music
about 40 gigs per format
i have everything in both vorbis and mpeg layer III
my mp3 xspf playlist http://18.104.22.168:8001/playlist.xspf
oh yea feel free to dl my music :)
http://22.214.171.124:8001/windows_d/media/audio/music/Music/ <ogg, some albums missing in ogg format, soon to be fixed
Thanks, now I can easily download some files I've lost before.
I just hope this isn't a RIAA trap. :(
no no of course not >.> <.<
honeslty tough are you with the RIAA, im not, but othere here might be
80GB + a lot of CDs
40 gig mp3 at 192 or better. (--aps preferred)
On the one hand, I love you. On the other hand, I'm not sure if that's a good idea... at least add a robots.txt so Google doesn't find that collection.
4GB+ of mp3s (ﾟДﾟ)y─┛~~
hey does anyone have the direct download link to densha otoko
about... 10 gigs, i suppose. mostly mp3 because it is. used to have a player that only accepts that format... now I have one that does OGG as well, but still.
I've got almost 30 GB now... A lot of mp3 and ogg, but I also have quite a bit of modules and other things like .nsf, .sid, or other lesser-known chiptune formats
Most of my music is creative commons, public domain stuff, songs by friends, or music I made myself :]
I have no idea how big my music collection is in terms of GB, but it's not that large and it mostly features jpop & jrock.
In before weeaboo.
i have 20Gb of music on my MP3 player (got room for 80GB more) i also got a desent LP colletion, were i collect punk, SKA, Oi, blues, jazz, rock , progg and more.
A little over 10 GB of stuff. Most of it's Classic Rock and Music Collections like the YTMND soundtracks and lone mp3s of songs I like The Man from Harlem. Most of it is in MP3 format, but I also have that .m4a format too.
The only things I listen to is Hip-Hop, Rap and R&B with certain exceptions, of course. Currently I have 12 GB worth of music on my computer.
I have a lot of creative commons, public domain stuff, songs by friends, and music I made myself too.
Will you be my friend? Or share your music collection with me? (I like obscure stuff.)
ok! google for mono211, kahvi, ansiform, and Ronin Collective :) 8bitpeoples for chiptunes.
11GB of mp3 files, about 2000 songs.
Oh, I know all about netlabels, I thought you meant your friends just made stuff unofficially and unreleased.
I like some netlabel music too, but a lot of it just seems the same to me, like they're releasing slight remixes of the same song over and over and over... maybe I'm not listening to the right netlabels, but it seems like while they provide a good atmosphere, there's little stuff on netlabels that stands out, or works for active listening. And this is why I don't listen to netlabel stuff more.
I have about 40 gigs of Classic Rock backed up on my external hard drive in WAV for the most part (I have the room for it, I could care less.) Planning to convert them to a seperate 320kbps MP3 in the future to take some strain off of my 30 gig mp3. I also have quite of bit of royalty-free from Newgrounds, other asssorted places in MP3.
I have a 298GB external hard drive, and it's full. About two/three dozen movies but the rest is music. Besides that, I have stacks of CD-Rs (some audio CDs, some MP3 cds with 10/11 albums on), two full MP3 players (one approx 20gb, another approx 30gb, very little of it is backed up elsewhere, just bought a new 60gb iPod for cheap).
Considering I just got DSL A week ago, I'd say 29 gigs is a decent size. Most is MP3 but I have about 5% APE and 15% flac
I have all formats, mostly MP3 but also OGG, M4U, APE, WMA probably a little of everything. That's only because of the format I download them in though, and it's annoying to have to deal with some of the more obscure formats.
0 songs. 0 formats.
around 65,000 tracks
and the rest are a mixture of sid, gb, nsf, and mod
150-200 cds (uncounted)
So far I have 873 Lossless WAV files at 30.3 GB.
what the fuck is wrong with you
I don't have anything that impressive XD
1719 songs, most in AAC format, about 30 or so in MP3
I don't know how you guys can listen to your music collection if it's so massive. You won't be able to listen to all of the songs properly. Well I'm having problems keeping up.
MP3, converted all that shit.
I tend to avoid the collecting music on the computer. Maybe I'm just old fashioned. I also own a pretty old Beatles LP :0
I'm rather impressed, actually...
~23GB MP3 starting to switch to FLAC
423 Files, mostly MP3, except for my Dream Theater albums which are FLAC.
I've got 509 CD's
28GB in various formats. Things I rip myself I do in OGG, unless it's something I really love, in which case I use FLAC. I download a lot of music, however, which usually comes in MP3.
Around 60GB. Mostly MP3, maybe 1% a mix of OGG and FLAC.
Around 3.5 gigs. I only get songs I LOVE, I never get whole albums.
according to my itunes, 23.5 hours of music. i keep on trying to find new music, but it is really hard to do because i hate listening to random people singing crap.
(All backed up as well)
25.5 GB, mostly in mp3, some in flac, some in wav. ;;
On my second HD:
1,167 FLAC files 35.5 GB
2,265 MP3 files 7.01 GB
I think I have more than a month of music if played straight through.
There's three artists I have more than 24 hours of: Dissecting Table (33:06:19), Nine Inch Nails (28:56:56), The Smashing Pumpkins (28:22:27). Dissecting Table is a prolific Japanese noise/industrial/doom metal artist with 15-30 minute songs. As for NIN and TSP, that's mainly from collecting bootlegs and rarities.
I can't tell the difference between 192 kbps vorbis and a 320 kbps vorbis.
I must be retarded.
Vorbis is transparent for most people at -q 4 (~128 kbps) or lower. At 192 (-q 6), you'd have to have really ace sound card, speakers, and hearing to tell a difference.
60gb of visual kei
5gb of other
Over 71,000 mainly rock songs, 99% of them converted to 320MBps MP3 from CDs or lossless formats, 187GB on my hard drive.
about 500 CDs
about 60 LPs
about 40 7"s
105 here, I deleted all my FLAC files and I'm starting over.
I'll post the stats by the end of the month.
I know the PERFECT song, Frank Sinatra - Learnin' the Blues. Have fun killing yourself.
About 8gb - 8.2gb, almost all of it is on my iPod because I only have a 10gb HDD in my laptop, most of it is anywhere from 64kbps MP3 (about 5 files), to 320kbps MP3 (about 8 files), with the average bitrate being 192kbps.
i have 2.5 Terrabytes of mp3s right now.
over 300GB mp3s
We're all packrats, almost everyone who posted in this thread. We'll never listen to anywhere near all of it.
I second that. If you look on my iTunes, the majority of the songs have never been played more than once.
Some people just download mp3s for collection purposes. If you think it's dump, I will just say that having a good collection makes you feel more comfortable if friends with different music interests visit your house. More music, more fun
P2P filesharing really needs to improve. If it were possible to easily redownload a song later, I wouldn't feel the need to keep so many.
Why can't the whole internet have a 30 PB collection or whatever that we just play at any time...
Answer: the RIAA and its insistence on dominion even over music that it never had anything to do with.
around 8 Mb of MP3s
Welcome to the black parade - Mcr
Blurry - PM
AHAHAHAHHAhahahahhahhaa!!! Nice! So funny! You killed me! Seriously! :DDDD
What about all the indie music there? Even freely available netlabel music isn't that easy to access...
About 50-60 CDs, mostly backed up as WMA (old PC) or lossless ATRAC (Sony MP3 player)
Around 80 Vinyl LPs and a couple dozen sigles (Simon & Garfunkel FTW) from my parents (partly comedy)
Some casette tapes, but nothing worthwhile
My music collection isn't that big, but it's still bigger than my penis.
~26Gb. Mostly mp3 (192kbs+) with a couple random albums in ogg/flac.
20GB, I need to delete some stuff.
Okay, I have a question. Everyone keeps talking about downloading FLAC, ogg, musepack, etc. On the networks (pretty much just slsk) I've only ever seen .mp3. where are you guys finding stuff in that format?
>>133 torrents mainly, but I actually used to find the occasional mpc or ogg on kazaa years ago. They're not that rare. Also there are people on slsk with FLACs of some stuff, I found a few while checking out slsk last month (decided to go back to torrents tho).
500 Vinyls (300 from my collection 200 from my parents), some tapes I have to rip before demagnetization, and about a hundred of CD's and DVDs (CDDA, MP3, Ogg, MPC, Flac and Tracker Modules), and not including what is yet to be burned on the HD... Kinda cool.
I've got 7736 songs in my library, ~47% of which encoded in the Ogg Vorbis format. The rest are mostly my old MP3 encodes. I've got tons of CDs waiting to be ripped and encoded, so it'll certainly be well over 50% Vorbis once I get around finishing up the backlog (as if that'll ever happen).
Everything I rip is in 256Kbps AAC, or if I download something in MP3 that's higher than that I convert it. Everything else is just MP3.
In all: 3693 items, 10.4 days, 23.98GB. But the guy next door has about 17,000 MP3s…he can overfill an 80GB iPod with just music, no video or podcasts or anything extra. Shared libraries for the win.
Kinda cool? That sounds completely unmanageable!
106.6 GB, mostly 256+Kbps mp3 with some FLAC.
16627 songs, 49 days 21 hours 24 mins total.
624gb, 1442 albums, 20147 songs, all LAME-encoded mp3s
FLAC - 2,075 files - 46.6GB
AC-3 (Dolby Digital) - 2 files - 9.63mb
AAC - 53 files - 389mb
MP3 - 6,614 files - 31.8GB
People like you make me want to kill myself.
There's no way you listen to all of that.
Why would that make you want to kill yourself? I could understand if it makes him want to kill himself, but what's it got to do with you? If you're serious, you should probably see a psychiatrist.
8 albums on 256kbs ogg vorbis.
Maybe after I get new headphones I will try to make a new music collection. For now though I'm okay with this.
Around 130 gigs or so, most of it in OGG -6 or MP3 -v0. As far as physical formats go, I've got about 90 CDs, 12 vinyl records, and about 50 bootlegs on CD-Rs.
How'd you get so much ogg while having so little music in physical formats? Is it transcoded? Did you have more CDs and sell them? Download FLAC and encode it?
I'd pull the plug if that happened. Let me organise my music and metadata myself.
I've got around a thousand CDs, much of which I've since digitized into mp3. Don't know what the full volume of data is these days.
>>149, I have to point out the obvious: CDs are already digital.
36GB, mp3s all over the place as far as bitrate is concerned !_!
I've posted in this thread a few times, my collection is ever changing, I depleted my FLAC collection was going to go to Musepack, but now I'm going back to FLAC, this is actually the third or fourth time I've deleted my entire collection only to find out that I want to go back.
True enough. Substitute 'convert' for 'digitize'.
10gb or so, in about 1,400 files.
mostly Mp3s, 256kbps or VBR set to 256kbps average, but copious amounts of Oggs in varying bitrates and a sprinkling of everything else.
On top of that, maybe 80 discs, legitimate and bootlegs - Mostly of things you can't find on the internet (Copious amounts of Russian music for one. Infact, it's entirely Russian music and Classical, I think the only exception is Dark Side of the Moon.. I haven't touched any of it since I ripped it all to mp3.)
