Electronic Lossless: Worth It or Not

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Can any music producers or studio-goers out there tell me if it is worth it to purchase music that is largely electronic or computer generated in a lossless format?

For archiving and safekeeping, or maybe using it for music production, absolutely yes.

For daily use, not so much.

I always make sure to buy lossless so at the very least I can have a copy of the original that wont be compressed twice if I need to convert it to another format.

 

As far as electronic music goes, it can be more prone to artifacts than acoustic stuff but it depends on the song.

Agreed. I alway have lossless copies of my most faved albums on my backup external hard drives, 320k on my laptops and 192k (with certain DSPs added for personal enjoyment) on my phones
