iTunes: 4205 songs 11.4 days 35.55 GB

post #1 of 50

Since my sister got me an iPod for my birthday I decided to rip all my CDs. My music collection comes out to: 4205 songs 11.4 days 35.55 GB.

I'm glad she got me the 40 GB iPod

Mine comes to 8813 songs, 24.9 days, 44.38 GB and I still have a couple hundred cds that aren't in there.

I ripped at 320 ACC, which is over kill for the iPod in my car, but sounds very nice through my stereo. And having all my music available in iTunes is so much nicer than playing with my CD changer. I think I'm going to store my CDs in the closet -- I should have ripped my collection when iTunes first came out. 8)

Be glad you didn't rip your entire CD collection the first time around, otherwise it might have been in a format you didn't want. For example, I had most of my music in 160 kbit MP3 and once AAC came out and I got my G5 I re-ripped it all in 160 kbit AAC.

Some people prefer the "openness" of MP3, but I'm a Mac guy who will use Apple products anyhow and a semi-audiophile, so AAC is perfect for me.

All this talk of AAC+ makes me dread the day of ripping everything again. Then again, I don't know if my iPod Mini will support AAC+.

320 ACC is a useless difference between 160 ACC. If you ask me your just wasting space for no good reason..

4999 songs 13.4 days 24.69 gigs. Most of mine have been uploaded in 192 mp3. Did I really mess up not uploading in AAC? I kind of like cross-platform of mp3 but would it be worth it to upload any further cds in AAC?

When encoding from iTunes, the general but not unanomous sentiment is that AAC will be of better quality than MP3 at the same bitrate. There are more sophisticated MP3 encoders available that arguably rival AAC's quality at the same bit rate. However iTunes doesn't use these encoders.

MP3 is more universally supported than AAC but the majority of people never have an issue with using either.

I have thousands of 192kbps MP3s but currently rip to 256 AAC. I'll probably leave the 192 MP3s as is until I make another jump in encoding quality. Someday, I'll probably be storing everything in lossless formats on a terrabyte drive. The jump from 192 MP3 to lossless is big but 192 MP3 to 256 AAC isn't worth the hassle of reripping the CDs.

I agree, however I'd re-rip your "favs" so that you have your best songs in the best quality. That stuff you only listen to now and again (and iTunes play counts will tell you!) can stay in a lesser format.

4939 songs, 14.7 days, 19.26 GB. Pretty much all 128 kbps AAC, sounds OK to me .

980 songs, 2.7 days, 4.14GB... Not much I know, however I'm close to the 4.6GB capacity on my rev.a 5GB iPod, looks like a right brick compared to the new ones, an upgrade seems in order... iPod photo would be nice, but it's pricey...

Anyway, back on topic, 146GB of music? 34,000 songs? How the hell did you get that many songs? I couldn't even think of a few thousand, nevermind tens of thousands...

I have strange tastes in music (4 non blondes, 50 Cent, Paul Hindemith...). At the moment very "into" Fairport Convention (going to Cropredy next August).

Is that the composer Paul Hindemeth? Our wind ensemble here played his Symphony for Band not long ago, I really liked it. Played another great piece by a German composer, Der Traum des Oenghus by Rolf Rudin.

Just thought it was neat to see Hindemeth come up on your screenshot.

Oh, and to stay on topic: 3474 songs, 9.9 days, 15.73 GB

Wow. My 7202 songs, 22.1 days, and 38.38 GB seems very unimpressive right now.

Guess we'll have to wait some time for the 300 GB iPod.

Yes, it is the composer Paul Hindemith. I mainly listen to classical music. Probably 90% of my library is classical (2500 CDs).

Slightly on-topic: I wish iTunes would give you the choice to organize your music by composer (should be possible to set by album). I like my music organized by composer, but iTunes organizes by artist. So if I want iTunes to organize my collection (which I do) I have to put the composer as artist (and put the artists name in the Info-box).
Slightly irritating, but I will survive.

BTW: Thank you for asking about Hindemith. It made me listen to some of his music. It is wonderful (listening to the sonata for viola d'amore and piano just now)

How do you collect 2,500 classical CD's witbout duplicates? did you buy complete boxsets or Mozard, Bach, beethoven, etc? How much per CD?

That is nothing. I have a friend who has more than 20 000 CDs. The amount of music out there is vast. I could probably order 1000 CDs tomorrow and not get a single duplication of a work I already have.

I have no complete sets of composers, but I have 4 different recordings of Beethovens string quartets. And 3 complete symphony cycles. And 3 complete recordings of the piano sonatas. And so on and so on...

Music exists in three forms - the way the composer means it, the way the performers interpret it, and the way the listener hears it. Nobody knows how the composer wanted it played - the performer must try to look behind the score and different performers see different things in the music, and the way you hear it differs with your mood. So a work will sound different with different interpretations (and on different hearinigs). You really need to have more than one recording of the main works (I have 7 complete recordings of Wagners Ring).

I probably paid around 15$ pr CD (CDs are expensive here), so the cost of my collection is about 35000 - 40000 $. I have a Krell CD player, Conrad-Johnson tube amplifiers and Quad electrostatic loudspeakers, and the sound is fantastic. No compressed music (iTMS) for me
post #33 of 50
no iTMS for me neither, except the free stuff I am looking to expand my music collection at 75 CD's/year, but I want to work to make that double or triple that due to the C.P.D.'s trying to trojan horse their way in as CD's.

I think I discovered the perfect way to re-import music as encoding changes, have a master iTunes library with all the correct tags for all your music in AIFF format, including full Album art worked (scanned in for highest possible size and to be able to read the tiny print ) then when you want to convert to the newest Lossless etc run an Applescript or something that imports from your AIFF masters hence no work for you, and the speed should be very fast. Now an Apple script to keep your Lossless iTunes library in sync with your 192kbps AAC library for your iPod (playlists, playcount etc).
