    I use this to learn songs. It ain't working. For a few days now. Can anyone affirm this, and/or help...

    I like, NEED it! Have to learn a couple of songs for a fairly important gig this weekend.

    This is the one I use -

    Are there others that are just as good?

    Thanks. I wound up using this one after fiddling with a few

    Lot of creepy popups with some of those. Hope my computer still works tomorrow... :jawdrop:.

  7. This happened to me once, and I switched to recording the youtube audio signal with a Zoom digital recorder. The MP3 files that I buy seem to be of higher quality, but some songs have never been released in digital form. Like you, I prefer an MP3 file over playing a youtube video.

    I do a lot of my song learning in my car. Can't do that with the videos :). I love my new car's usb. It's brand new technology to me.

  9. A number of years ago I bought 'ReplayMusic' for about $20.
    It will take anything you can play through the computer and record it.
    I've gotten quite a bit of mileage out of it.

    Buy the songs from iTunes and support the artists. I mean, you expect people to pay money to see you play, right?

    Alternatively, support a company that pays a little more fairly and shell out $10 a month for Spotify, then build playlists of what you need.

    YouTube has cut some seriously shady deals so that they don't have to pay even half of what Spotify does, which is a percentage of a penny per stream.

  14. I'm a dinosaur I guess - I just run the headphone jack into my DAW and record the audio - this allows me to easily ajust speed/pitch/eq and add a click track if desired and most importantly for me I can easily loop sections that I have trouble figuring out. For me, it is so much easier to learn when I'm controlling the playback from inside my DAW

    How is this not obvious? If WE don't value music as a commodity, why the hell will anyone else?
