    Nothing beats the feeling of holding a physical CD...

    You can also rip it in your own format that way (ALE FTW)

    I still do, got about five CDs on my christmas list this year. I spent the last few years just borrowing/transfering files from friends but it all went tits up when I got my new laptop (my itunes library has gone for 2.5k+ to just 600 tracks) and now I prefer to actually *have* the music in my hands.

    I don't have a CD player, so I don't buy CDs. I buy vinyl, but, y'know, from charity shops/ebay/stalls, so it's not contributing to the music industry or anything.

    I go to occasional gigs. I download music without paying and buy it in pretty equal amounts. If I feel the artist deserves the money, or if they're on an indie record label and particularly new or unpopular, I'll buy the track. Anything I want from a major artist I'll download without paying.

    I go to gigs, I still buy CD's on occasion, and always, if downloading, I download it off iTunes. I have too much of a guilty conscience to download illegally.

    No. If I had money, I might. But I don't.

    Yeah! I used to spend a FORTUNE on hookers, and then I thought 'hey, if I just RAPE them....'

    Seriously though, I wouldn't buy music. More because I think its better for music if artists are relying on revenues from touring, and I will happily fork out some dosh to go to a gig or festival.

    Also my new lodger has about a million albums which he's drip feeding me, I honestly don't think i'm ever going to get through it all.....

    I'd say about 60% of my music is downloaded. If I like an album enough (or the cover art) then I'm willing to pay for a CD or vinyl copy.

    I can count the number of CD's I own on one pair of hands. If they're a CD I *absolutely* love then I just have to have it - that's where eBay comes in. Otherwise I don't buy music. I do go to gigs - never actually been to a festival. It doesn't appeal all that much.

    Iam in my second year of a music production degree and have my own label..

    Was wondering do any of you still buy music?

    Digitally or CD's?

    What about gigs? Pay to go see artists/bands?
    You have your own label? Doing a music production degree? Time to learn how to spell the plural of CDs then? ;

    I buy physical CDs. Downloading may be more convenient but if your computer goes so does all your music.
