How many songs do you have in your digital library?

28 posts in this topic

Around the holidays, I usually have some time to rip digital music files from my CDs. Music went digital around 2000 and I'm still not done ripping my CDs let alone vinyl. I almost have 20K songs, probably 30K and change if I rip everything. How many do you have? Not sure how accurate the chart below is, but something to go by.

How many do you have available in the cloud? I have about 8K in Google Music. Didn't opt for iTunes Match as I use a subscription service.

iTunes tells me I have 1,624. A few hundred of those are comedy though, not music.

I still go to hard copy CDs when I want to listen to something seriously. I can do youtube, but I don't really grok the whole files thing. :surrender:

iacas has ~13K and uses ~105 GB

I have ~20K and use ~125 GB, many of my songs are encoded at a low bit rate as I ripped most of my CDs way before FLAC or 320kbps was available.

You must be using a really high bit rate or an encoding that uses a lot of space?

320k or FLAC would take up the space without a problem, especially if yours were encoded at 128k or lower. I cannot stand 128k mp3s, I always opt for higher resolution which is why I love buying albums from Bandcamp when I can.

I honestly don't know how big my collection is. It's spread out over two computers plus a removable drive, so I'll have to dig around a bit :-)

I ripped all my CDs to ALAC and also have quite a few 24-bit/192kHz files, mostly needle drops of vinyl albums.

Before Spotify:

Nowadays I use Spotify exclusively.

I use MOG, but am leaning towards streaming my own library via Google.

Yeah, I see now. I ripped a CD using ALAC and it's about 3x the size of a 320 mp3 rip.
