Share some tunes and recommendations. Going to dump whatever I can scrape from the archives ITT.
The East Germans had decent music in my opinion putting the ideology aside.

FLAC in case there's any autists out there like me who like to compress their music themselves. Sorry sleepychan.
Nobody asked for FLACs, 30 migs is beyond unreasonable for online streaming. Stop wasting bandwidth.
Fun fact if you click on the file related you can download it.
This. Even I can't bring myself to justify archiving 4K movies, it's just so much bloat for such little gain in fidelity. With music that fidelity is orders of magnitude less noticeable. Maybe if you're hosting on something like retroshare it's fine, but if you're uploading it to a server with limited space you should generally lean towards minimizing file size within reason. Not that zzzchan is tight on HDD space from what I've read but the principle stands.
I hold onto the files until I feel I'm running out of space and then I compress an amount of them myself in one go.
At the moment I don't lose anything by having FLACs (since I've got lots of HDD space to work with at the moment) but if push comes to shove I'll just compress the files myself. Without having to settle for some shitty mp3s.
Even if you don't keep the FLACs I would stilll reccomend downloading them. Having the choice to use superior compression methods will actually save you space in the long run as long as you delete the original FLACs after compression.
As for uploading it here, I don't see issue in uploading only 3 songs of this size. I prefer m4a 256 compression but if someone likes something else I'd like to provide that option by uploading the FLAC instead.
If I was going to do a larger dump I'd compress the files before uploading them, but again it was only three songs.
However, if nobody here compresses their own shit (which you should) then I guess I'll just upload the m4a's from now on.
There isn't an issue with just 3 bloated files, but if everyone upload just a few bloated files then every file would be bloated. We also need to account for the future as we have to rely on slower standards like the onion network and potentially slow P2P services in the future. I will always prefer smaller file sizes when the fidelity cost is borderline placebo. Debloating the internet is very important and that includes webms, audio, and images you upload to imageboards.
And people are lazy and tend not to manually compress things themselves. Once a bloated reaction image/webm starts circulating few very people are going to compress it and then you have created MB's of useless data that might circulate for years, or decades. It's autistic but an important kind of autistic to care about bloated file size.
But I am also speaking generally. I also understand the value of having raw files in all their full quality. But I agree with >>2340 in that imageboards are more about streaming the content. You should probably use dedicated P2P file sharing for the raw uncompressed files. Though I also just don't are too much about audio personally. I wasn't bothered much by the uncompressed wallpapers that we being posted because I enjoyed having high fidelity wallpapers. Maybe I'm a hypocrite, I don't know.
Point taken. It seems like I'm the only one autistic enough to compress my own audio here anyway.
My point stands that you niggers should get your audio in FLAC and compress it yourselves. MP3 is a shit compression method. More space needed, less quality, just shit. Not that I mind the odd 320-mp3 but 320-mp3 should not be the bulk of your music library.
Also, it seems like m4a can't be posted so here so I'm going to have to post music in opus instead.
Way to miss the point. Do you download every webm in every thread that comes your way in order to view it? Or do you, you know, stream it on the page first?
>I don't see issue in uploading only 3 songs of this size
<let's upload bloated shit no one asked for because we can
I hate this mentality and how prevalent it has become, no wonder the modern web is so slow and massive.
>I prefer m4a 256 compression but if someone likes something else I'd like to provide that option by uploading the FLAC instead.
Again, nobody asked you to provide anything. Don't make decisions for the user that will waste his time and bandwidth.
>if nobody here compresses their own shit (which you should)
It's funny because you're talking to someone who maintains an autistically large FLAC collection, but still would never upload a FLAC to a thread unless asked to.
This anon gets it.
Dead horse. I already understood and made a post confirming that I understood when the first anon made his post about that, except he didn't sound like a passive-aggressive faggot in his post.
This song and the whole Marshall Mathers LP always hits me in a tender spot. The whole album is colorfully angry, sad, humorous, dysfunctional, and he's thoroughly honest with his emotions and frustrated in the way only a young man can be. I listened to it a lot when I was in school.
