    Default Hate to do it, but need some Top40

    My collection is probably 99% Trance, Progressive and House and <1% Popular tunes of the recent times. After reading where the money making is, mostly non-remixed top40, as to keep the clulb goers happy with the same sh!t they hear on the radio, I now need to up my top40 collection.

    I have found a few places for this such as itunes, but only in 256kbs quality. I was wondering if there was a dedicated site for such a thing with 320 kbps top40 tracks? I've looked for a while now as well as on here and came up empty handed.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Just use itunes store. Doesn't matter too much if its not 320 as its all shit anyway (In my opinion)

    iTunes is AAC which some (not necessarily me) say is better quality than mp3 Kb for Kb.

    But, more importantly, as stated above, most likely wouldnt matter too much anyway.

    you know, if record companies would just stop making shitty pop music and shove good house/trance/whatever down the public's throats as much as they do the other garbage they usually pump out, the world would be a much better musical place. The regular top40 crowd are musical sheep: they will listen to whatever the mainstream tells them to listen to, so why not just tell them good music is good music??...just sayin :P

    but yeah itunes is fine and you gotta do what you gotta do to make money heh

    how do you get tracks from the itunes store into Traktor? I've tried before and the encoding doesn't allow me...

    itunes should be visible on traktors file browser, from there just select the tracka and load the into a playlist

    that should work
