Ok, a few people were bothered by the previous 32,000 song limit (unfortunately, it never affected me).



Apparently this is no longer a problem though.



FYI!

    So what is the new limit? There must be a limit, even if it is rediculously high.

    I'm just ripping my own CD's. I have very few downloaded songs. My collection is not very big (in comparison to other collectors), but I'm up to 34100 "songs" (or tracks) now.

    My collection is mainly classical music, and each movement of a work, every aria in an opera etc... is registered as a track.

    BTW - in my collection 34100 tracks translates to approx. 190 GB.

    OT: What Bartok pieces/CDs do you recommend for a guy who wants to listen to Bartok's most dischordant "noisy" stuff? I know he composed some really progressive stuff that was pretty intense, but I need direction finding it. Care to help me out? I like bands like the Swans and This Mortal Coil, Celtic Frost. They mention Bartok sometimes...

    Easy access. Say I want to compare string quartets i G by 2 composer - they are easily available.

    I feel like listening to some baroque music - all my baroque recordings are available with one click.

    Easy to download to my iPod. I change the content on the iPod daily. It follows me wherever I go.

    My collection grows with approx. 100 CD pr. year. I don't see any end to that. There is just so much intereseting music out there.

    And all the conductors interpret things differently. I know one person who has 120 different recordings of Beethovens 5th Symphony!
