Top 5 Qualities Of A Good Free Music Download Service

September 29th, 2007|| · No Comments ·

With so many options available and such fast technology advances it can be difficult to choose a free music download service. To help the music enthusiast find the best possible free music software I have identified the top five characteristics to look for when selecting a service.

• Speed. Download speed is the one aspect of music download software that can drive you crazy if it is too slow. P2P software such as Ares Ultra is unobtrusive and fast
• Quality. For poor speakers of a poor standard or the not-to-fussy listener, 128 kbps is okay. Preferably the tracks should be encoded at 256 kbps or 320 kbps.
• Interface. The “skin” should be clean, simple and intuitive. Have a look at Ares Lite P2P Filesharing software for an example of an effective and pleasing yet minimalist interface.
• Selection. How many tracks are on offer? Ares has no fewer than 100 million on offer in shared files across the network. That could seriously increase your listening pleasure.
• Music discovery. There has to be a way to move around the network to discover new bands and new acts and new albums. Some of the large corporate “free music” sites such as SpiralFrog make this all but impossible because they punt their own artists. Ares is open source in the music discovery sense too. They have nothing to gain by directing you to established artists.
