Vintage recordings as MP3s

Postby Sphemusator » Sun Jun 03, 2007 12:36 pm

In the past I have relied heavily on the Karadar / CoCoA site as a source of vintage recordings in MP3 format.

However, towards the end of 2005, CoCoA announced a major redesign, and launched a redesign forum to seek the opinions of site users. Since then it has been almost impossible to contact the CoCoA staff, and there have been no progress updates since 2006. I am afraid the redesign process seems to have stalled. :cry:

While the CoCoA site remains available, access is very shaky and the site itself is quite complex to navigate, requiring the user to build a compilation of selected recordings before proceeding to another site to download the compilation. Since many of the recordings are more than 3MB long, and the final download server is quite slow, downloading can take several days and repeated sessions. And download resume is not supported, so an interrupted download must be restarted from zero.

But mostly I get my music from CDs in my library at uni. At the rare occasion that I just simply cannot find a the recording I want or a piece I want I will be forced to d/l it, but I avoid that at all costs.

don't forget that a lot of downloading sites are acually legal, i often use the CoCoA site and www.classiccat.net
I think that most of the illegal music comes from p2p transfers (limewire torents etc) which are infinitely harder to track down and stop than a website is.

But generally i don't worry too much about these things and download them if i can find them or just go out and buy the CD if i really want something.
