Thanks for the reply.The only reason why I cant do the first option is because I wont have enough space to hold both version of the files. It would be something like 3-400 gigs and my HD is only 250 at work, hence my desire to lower the bitrate in the first place.The second option makes more sense as I wont have to have duplicate files but...how do you copy the library off of an Ipod? Dont you need some 3rd party software to do that?
Yes but wont this make duplicate files? Is there no way to do this in Itunes? ITunes allows you with one button press, to downgrade all of the music on your ipod.Is this not possibly for the hard-drive based library itself?
I know you can do it for the ipod but was wondering if you can do it for your desktop.
I recently copied/pasted my entire library from my home computer to a new desktop at work.
Most of my music is at 320+ and I dont need that level of quality at work.
Would like to replace all of the 320+ with 256 versions without making duplicates of each song (one at 320+ and the new one at 256).
I have virtually nothing in the genre.
Looking for the material with great beats...heavy bass... but open to every sub-genre.
What are the must-owns in the space?
Heres what I have:
Now on my third pair, love the sound profile but the quality is really sub-par.
For some reason, after a couple of months, I start getting static/interference when the cord moves around at the point closest to the jack.
Would like something that can handle a wide variety of musical genres, has powerful yet non-bloated lows and is preferably <$50.
Of the couple of thousands of albums I own, maybe 5-10 are R&B.
I happen to really like the genre but just never properly researched/go into it.
Really digging Banks right now and loving how there are some synthy/break-beat influences with regard to the beats that are utilized throughout.
Any recommendations based on the above?
I absolutely adore Peter Gabriel's work on "The Passion: The Last Temptation of Chris" and "The Long Walk Home" (from Rabbit Proof Fence) and am always looking for similar type material.
