Yeah thats better

well actually downloading is legal were I'm from, but anyhow. Isn't the point of being punk not caring what others think about you? So is your question in fact as anti-punk as it gets?
Anyway I'd say buy it if you like it.

Let me get this straight. You're asking a bunch of people who are sitting at their computers, likely due to boredom, what to do for fun.

I Support Illegal Downloading And I Don't Support Guitar_kingdom Because I Am Moar Punx Than All Of You
Journalism is just a gun. It's only got one bullet in it, but if you aim right, that's all you need. Aim it right, and you can blow a kneecap off the world.

I usually go for both when I like an album.
There's no point in buying CDs anymore, but I buy lots of vinyls.
#7
I only buy vinyl because when I get a CD, I just rip it to my computer and it gets lost in the sea of music I have. I never put a CD into a player and listen the whole way through. Vinyl is much more personal for me, and supporting bands you like is way more punx than stealing their music.

I wasn't doing it to know what i should do to get punks to like me, it was a joke / "how do you listen to music?" topic (i always thought using punx is the universal signal of a joke about being punk.)
Personally i use CDs, can't find a decently priced record player and no where (that i know of) sells vinyl. But i don't like to download songs because buying CDs gives me something to collect and few things are more rewarding than finding an album you have been trying to find for a ridiculous amount of time.
#10
I'd totally buy vinyl because I'm turning into an audiophile, but I don't have a record player or the money to spend on one.
#11
I buy Vinyl, but I'll usually download a copy too because I like having it on my iPod. I probably download more than I buy vinyl though.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

Wait, really? Is this some clever joke or are you really that dumb?

Huh?
CDs can be easily burned. If I wanted a CD, I'd burn it. I always like to support bands by buying their stuff, but when I do, I'd rather have something that I can't easily replicate. Plus vinyls are way more interesting and I feel much better about having the vinyls that I have than the CDs.

I don't see what's wrong with this. You are ridiculously quick to freak the f*ck out over everything.
#15
I wise man once told me "No body deserves your money" so I live by that philosophy. I love vinyls though, great audio quality, the downside beig they dont get on my ipod.
#16
I'd like to say I only download music to see if I'll like a band, then I buy their CD. But I don't, so **** it. I do buy CDs at local shows every and then though.

Most of the bands I listen to would be very difficult to try and actually track down a tangible record anyway. The more popular bands I listen to can suck it, they don't need the extra $11 from me buying their CD. The band itself would probably only see about $2 of that money anyway.

Let's look at why this is wrong and you should feel bad:

CDs being easily burned is a plus.
Wanting something difficult to replicate is confusing and unnecessary.
Vinyl is more interesting if you find a big large easily breakable record that has lower sound quality to be "interesting." Not to mention the fact that you can't take a record collection with you as easily, you can't play it in your car, and you can't exactly burn them to disc as easily.

Collecting vinyl is for hipsters. Fact.

The only excuse for wanting a useless thing is that one admires it intensely.

All vinyls are quite useless.

This was ****ing stupid. Seriously.
I have an iPod. I can listen to any music that I want with a quickness. Your CD collection is for hipsters. MP3s are infinitely more convenient and practical. I can take them anywhere and play them any time I want. Your CD case couldn't hold anywhere close to as much as an Ipod can, and it's 20 times the size, heavier, and takes so much more time and effort.

As far as Vinyls vs CDs for collecting, Vinyls win easy. You really can't argue with that.

I got vinyls, cds and also cassettes for mah walkman. I buy all my stuff cos Dr.Strange records is like a 20 drive or 40 minute bus ride from my house

I much prefer vinyl to mp3s, but you can't download vinyl for free. CDs are lame, but they're the cheapest way to put out music (outside of digital only releases, which are ****ing lame), so they're pretty damn punx.

He was saying CDs are more practical than vinyl, not that they're more practical than downloading. Vinyls are more "collectible" of course, they just aren't practical. And he's correct that vinyl is for hipsters. Also, I seriously doubt he has a "CD collection" because he seems to pride himself in downloading lots of music.

If he was saying that, he was missing the point. My initial post was that I download my music, but for collecting and band support, I buy vinyls.

Yeah, I can't argue that. Unfortunately I use logic in my arguments.

And since you missed the point of my post, let me sum it up:

IF YOU COLLECT VINYL, AND YOU DON'T LIVE IN THE 80'S, YOU ARE A DUMB HIPSTER.

I know this will piss off about half of the forum but whatever. The vinyl fetish our generation is going through is rather sickening.

SUPAH EDIT:
23847 songs, 85.01 GB of music. Suck on that charliezard.

If I'm going to collect anything it would be vinyl.

I don't listen to music anymore, I just listen to guitar pro versions of songs because I like how cheesy everything sounds in midi.

putting a guitar pro into midi changes the file.......I just did that and the melody is always a beat behind the bass, that´s awful
#30
I don't have that problem. I use tuxguitar though, because I'm cheap like that.

This worked out fine, even though it's the first thing I ever made and could probably do it a hell of a lot better now.

(I'll upload it to my profile as the file is 63kb so I can't post it here.)

Oh, wait, removed a rhythm guitar track and it should fit now!

Agreed, CD's just don't seem as interesting, and if you want to argue about portability, MP3's overrule that area. I think that guy just spends loads of money on CD's and you're starting to make him feel bad.

That's really ignorant. The way vinyl is pressed and recorded is in the exact same sound waves that our ears hear it so it sounds so much better, mp3s are just compressed and minimized to be as little as possible without actually working with our ears and soundwaves the way that vinyl does. I always knew vinyl sounded better but then one of my Mas Comm professors got on the subject one day and completely described the process and the facts of why they should sound better, not just opinions.

Sounding better isn't punx.

You can (kind of) fix the lag problem in Guitar Pro by changing the latency options in the sound settings. But really if you want the track to stay perfectly in time, you have to use either all MIDI synth sounds or all RSE sounds. No mixing. Actually, even the RSE timing gets a little weird if you use a swing rhythm.

A lot of what I listen to is obscure crust, j-core and 80's hardcore from the midwest. If you can find me a website that sells a huge collection of records that haven't been printed in 20+ years, then I'll let your statement slide. Until then, shut the **** up, you pretentious prick.
