Does anyone have Apple Music? could anyone tell me about it? is it worth getting? Is it better than spotify? any help is welcome...
im trying to decided what service to get
They both have holes.
The additions that Apple Music has (or had, my free trial ended in September) are kinda inconsequential like This Heat and Andy Stott and Steve Wilson and other individual, but not big catalog, inclusions.
Well obviously sometimes piracy is the only option if we're talking about like Natural Snow Buildings.
But you and I both know that's not what people pirate.
Apple Music - Garbage. Nothing apple has ever made has ever been good.
>Cons: It's apple.
>Pros: Great desktop program on pretty much all platforms. Nice, well optimized app. Very easy to figure out and use.
>Cons: It's the most popular, so when artists boycott streaming services, they generally go for spotify first. But unless you listen to taylor swift I doubt it's a big deal, just something to note. If you don't pay for it, the ads are really fucking annoying. You can't download music offline on mobile, and you are forced to shuffle only. (You can shuffle singles, too.)
>Pros: You can upload your own music and access it anywhere, even if you torrented the music.
>Cons: Ugly, janky UI. Downloading offline on the mobile app is also pretty janky. Limited to 25k songs in the free version. No flac uploads.
In my opinion Spotify is the best one, but that's because I pay for it. If you want free, go with google music and upload your library or use Spotify and deal with the ads.
>Piracy is only done by people who can't afford to both buy albums and stream them.
If you can afford to buy all the music you want to listen to you're either extremely rich, and wouldn't need to ask questions about which service you should subscribe to, or have extremely narrow and limited taste.
Apple music has the better library. I've had both, and aside from artists who aren't on any streaming at all, I never encountered any absences on Apple music. Spotify has a few conspicuous holes.
>I want to buy every album I like
How old are you? No one thinks like this. It doesn't cost money to buy an album per month.
So you don't care about music then. I understand.
hold up, do you buy one CD/digital album per month, and that is the extent of your music gains over a one month period? Or do you stream, and purchase one album you enjoy in physical format per month?
1. High quality sources
2. Any release I want, and if its not available, I can request for it.
3. Leaks way before most other places
4. Can also download movies and TV to my seedbox
5. High quality vinyl rips
6. Insanely fast SL speeds
7. Use plex to stream the pirated content from seedbox
Because it's actually sanctioned by the musicians and actually pays money to them. When you're streaming and buying music at the same time you're actually demonstrating that you value music.
Nice projecting again moron. Even if what you were saying is true, the beauty of actually downloading music is being able to tag it yourself, and choose how to listen to it.
But I guess being completely denied the ability to listen to music if the streaming sites servers or your internet craps out, and being forced to use shitty web apps is objectively superior.
If you aren't streaming+buying your music, you are one of the following:
1) VERY poor
2) VERY young (you don't have a job to pay for the music/service)
3) a person who doesn't care about music enough to put music behind it
This is objective truth.
Have a good night kids!
Spotify premium is only $5 with student discount, sign up with student email and you will get a discount. Apple Music was just really shitty for me and fucked with the songs I already had downloaded, the UI is just so bad.
Because you're completely tied to the streaming service. They choose what music you have access to, in what format, how it's tagged, what software you can or can't use to listen to it, etc. And if you have problems with your internet connection, or their servers fuck up, you can't do anything.
And on top of it all, you have literally no guarantee that they will be around in the future, or that they won't start taking down music requested by some major company.
I have Apple Music and as a person who already had 10k+ songs in iTunes, it integrated very well. Library is great, curated playlists are on point. If you don't use iTunes I wouldn't bother tho
Yes, but it's an afterthought where you have to download specific playlists to the device in their entirety just to get local music synced. With Google, you can STREAM the music you uploaded, and it's added to your overall library.
