    Default Buying tracks adds up faster nowadays

    Hi all. Is there any current listing of online music track stores anywhere? Beatport is draining my bank account.

    The ones I know of:


    https://www.trackitdown.net/
    https://www.beatport.com/
    https://www.traxsource.com/
    http://www.djtunes.com/
    http://www.juno.co.uk

    Are there any others? Where do you shop? Beatport seems to be the most popular although I do not know other online track stores compare in terms of selection. I believe that the only main difference between all the stores could be the selection and/or maybe if the tracks they sell are MP3 or Lossless but Beatport has raised their prices and when you play $2.24 a track it ads up REALLY fast. I cannot buy as many tracks as I used to anymore.

    I'd also like to ask if anyone has seen any increase in usage of peer to peer file sharing apps for music.
    I use to use Soulseek about 10 years ago but nowadays it seems dead.

    I'd like to know:

    How do you get your music?
    Do you shop at beatport exclusively?
    Can you add any other stores or resources to this list?
    Any tips for saving money when buying tracks? I buy no more than 10 at time now from Beatport and I spent between $20 to $25 at least.
    Thanks

    I used to pay 11 bucks for import 12 inch singles and 7 bucks for domestic 12 inch singles...so I have little sympathy (j/k)

    I used to pay $40 for a 12" vinyl at times from the UK or Germany so I can certainly relate.

    This.
    Also don't fileshare, selling music is how some people survive.

    I think this is an important question. I make sure to go on a purge every couple of years.
