    Default Amazon's AutoRip

    http://www.amazon.com/b/?node=5946775011

    So this solution seems to me pretty neat! But I have some questions regarding this.

    First:
    - Is it legal to mix with these songs?

    Second:
    - What about future buys? Anyone knows?

    Let's take for instance Rock. It's pretty easier to get CDs then mp3s!

    Yes it would be legal.

    There is a list of CD's eligible here:

    Looks like you have to buy it from Amazon to get the mp3.

    That seems fair.

    I'll try and check what they have of classic rock. Thanks

    What about bitrate? I guess used aren't eligible right?

    I don't think you can do it with used cd's - maybe ones you can prove you bought brand new from Amazon.

    When I've bought mp3's from Amazon they are encoded at variable bitrate - good enough quality but not the best. Average at about 256KBps

    Great idea this...

    I love MP3, but there is something about the tangibility of a CD, plus, they are nice things own :-D

    I can definitely see the positives of the service, but one of the reasons I buy CDs is because I can rip them to a format and bitrate of my choosing. My CD collection is ripped to FLAC, for instance. If you're OK with MP3s it's great though.

    Its seems a good idea if you want the tunes immediately. However, I personally rip my CD's anyway to 320 kbps MP3 when I get them regardless. I know I should rip them to FLAC.
    Technics 1210 mk2's, Pioneer CDJ 500, Allen & Heath DB4, NI F1's (x2), Reloop Contour Controller Edition, Sennheiser HD25 1-II or Allen & Heath XD2-53's depending on my mood...

    Here is the problem with ripping: it's illegal to use the ripped versions. At least on Portugal this is the case. You can use the .WAV from the audio CD but you can't convert the track to any kind of extension. You have to use the track unmodified in any way.

    In the UK it's still illegal to rip CDs full stop. But I don't care what the law says in that case, so I just ignore it.

    It would be nice to ignore around here but those guys have like... 50% of chances of catching you on a gig. They're really really going to the clubs and inspecting everything!
