Downloading music for free may be dangerous

As we know, any song may be found for free on the various websites. These platforms don’t charge any fees from their visitors, that’s why they are obviously illegal – the share the music without its artists’ permission. So, downloading tracks from such websites, you break the law as well.

Besides, there are many other threats for you on such websites as well. Different viruses, malware programmes, and spam may be downloaded by you together with the illegal MP3s. That’s why we strongly recommend you avoiding these websites. Even having downloaded the track for free, you won’t be able to enjoy it fully – its quality won’t be good enough to listen to it with your player as needed.

On the other hand, there is a plenty of services, which offer music tracks on a paid basis. They give you an opportunity to get your favourite songs for some small pay, like $1-2 per track. However, these platforms guarantee the highest quality of a song for you. Besides, purchasing tracks are legal – it brings to the artist the profits from every listener, stimulating him for working more.

Pay for the highest quality of the music only

It’s not a secret, that there are different platforms, which sell music tracks for the visitors. The principle of these websites’ business is simple: a visitor pays for the track they distribute and some part of the revenue goes directly to the artist (or the studio, which represents him).

The variety of distributing websites with different interfaces and various conditions of usage leads to the different levels of service for the customer. So, we’d like to warn you about the quality of a song that you pay for.

Any track’s quality can be characterized from the point of its compression format and the bit rate. The higher the bit rate is – the higher quality of the track is. It results in different prices for the track as well.

Purchasing you favourite singer’s songs, be attentive to the track’s specifications. Pay for the highest quality of tracks only; compare different providers and choose the best one. Buy the songs, which sound like it should.

Another question is your provider’s speed download. While buying the whole album, you need to download a pretty big load of files at the time. So be sure, that your network connection is good enough for this.

There is plenty of downloading websites on the market, so sometimes picking the ‘right’ one for you may be difficult. The simplest way to make a choice is looking through the reviews of them. Other users will help you to learn about the platform more.

Music downloading tips for saving more

If you like some artist’s songs, downloading them may be pretty costly. There are some simple tips for saving your money, which will give you an opportunity to enjoying the tracks.

First of all, you should check, if the songs you like are available for free. There are several services for this, like Pandora and Slacker. They are designed for searching and listening to the tracks you like on your PC or your iPad. The main benefit from these services is an opportunity to get the tracks for free. On the other hand, these platforms provide music for listening without the direct saving on the device. All of the tracks you get are streaming online there.

Another useful tip for downloading (or buying) the music is loading all tracks together. If you like the songs of one artists, it will be much cheaper for you to buy the whole album of his. It’s cheaper, than purchasing his tracks one-by-one. So, keep it in mind the next time, when you discover another great singer for yourself.

There are many different websites on the web, which allow you to download the tracks directly. As a rule, they don’t charge you for each downloaded MP3. They also have no subscription, what means that these websites share someone’s tracks for free. It’s obvious, that such platforms break laws, either as their visitors, who download the tracks.

The final tip we’d like to give is: “Listen to the music before you buy”. Special ‘pre-listening’ buttons are available for those, who is going to purchase the track. Use it, in order not to waste money on the songs you don’t like.
