Re: audiogalaxy

You can also find available copies of the blocked stuff, if you get creative with the names of the tracks - mispell words, switch the artist with the title, etc.

Never try anything that uses the Gnutella network. Bearshare, Audiogalaxy etc. are all a waste of time along with Kazaa [although kazaa is good for downloading games].

If you're stuck for mp3s try www.imesh.com it offers a large selection and disconnections are very rare.

Fartle, you might want to edit out the comma at the end of the URL.

Purple Cow, I'm bi. I do Win98 at home and Mac at work. Apple is far too expensive in SA to run as a home computer, and software is almost impossible to come by if you still want to feed the family.

I've noticed that there is nothing on Warp records that you can download from Audiogalaxy: they've blocked every Aphex Twin, Broadcast, etc. track. Bastards.

For Purple Cow:. You could've logged on to Audio-Galaxy via MacSatellite but I guess it's all academic now.

In fact Audio-Galaxy/MacSatellite was the only way I've been able to download MP3s. MacTella usually freezes and I've found nothing else that supports Apple successfully...if anyone knows of anything please do tell.

RIP, audiogalaxy. There seems to be a lot by way f P2P file sharing available, but very little sounds particularly exciting. Ive followed vlad's advice on iMesh. Inferior selection of music, and the bastidd integrates itself in your browser. Spyware too.

TOP File Sharing Networks

Clean Client If you want Kazaa-Lite - MorpheusLite - iMeshLite - AudioGalaxyLite - LimewireLite or GroksterLite, CleanClients is the place to go. No spyware here!

Kazza-Lite is a powerful P2P network that has all spyware and adware removed! The Kazaa network is huge with millions of files and many users. However, get eDonkey if you want quality content.

WinMX is a file-sharing program. In addition to letting you share MP3s and other types of files, WinMX allows you to connect, simultaneously, to many established networks based on the OpenNap and Napster protocols. This is designed to yield more search results from a larger base of users. WinMX supports any file type, allowing you access to a diverse assortment of shared video and picture files, as well as the usual MP3 audio files. WinMX also features full chat and hot list capabilities, all wrapped in a multiwindowed interface. Version 2.5 added a new decentralized WinMX Peer Networking Protocol, in addition to updated support for the Napster and OpenNap protocols. This latest update features a single-window interface, with option to use a classic multi-window interface, advanced CPU throttling options for processing WinMX Peer network searches, and a number of minor bug fixes.

eDonkeyBot A great way for newbies having a hard time getting eDonkey2000 to work. Works great.

Grokster is a peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing program that allows its users to share all types of digital files through its proprietary network. Grokster's features include family and virus controls to help filter out unwanted content; detailed search capabilities; resumeable downloads; file previews using Windows Media Player; a built-in audio playlist; and more. This latest version contains unspecified bug fixes.

ComTry MP3 Downloader helps you to find your favorite MP3 files on the internet. It searches for the most reliable locations and lets you easily download the songs you want.

Xolox is based on the Gnutella network, it claims to take the best tech aspects of Napster, BearShare, eDonkey, and KaZaA and wraps them in a sophisticated, friendly program. Keep in mind, a disclaimer on XoloX's Web site states, "XoloX is not an optimal solution for modem users."

Konspire A new distributed file-sharing system featuring fast, exhaustive searches and modest network bandwidth requirements. Written in Java 1.1 (with Swing GUI) for platform independence.

Audiogalaxy Satellite is a real-time, transaction-based file-sharing system for MP3 users. This program uses a Web-based interface to let you search for artists, tracks, and albums, and download the tracks onto your computer. The client program is small and simple, designed to use a minimum of CPU and memory resources. Satellite automatically selects the closest user with the file you want, reducing external bandwidth usage. Files currently offline can also be selected for download, and once somebody who has the file comes online, your transfer will begin. If your download is interrupted, the Satellite Auto-Resume function will find an alternate user with the same file and complete the download.

eDoogle An excellent eDonkey2000 search engine. Won't slow the network down like some bots.

BearShare lets you search for, download, and share files with everyone on the global Gnutella peer-to-peer information network. This program works with MP3, MPEG, AVI, ASF, MOV, JPEG, GIF, and all other file types. It features full documentation (installed with the program), slick graphics, and a user interface that makes searching, downloading, and file sharing easy. It also features upload bandwidth controls, enhanced connection management, user-defined family filter controls, and improved downloading.

NapMX If you use WinMX, NapMX and NapperMX will help you find extra servers. Awesome program.

JitzuShare is a complete Peer-to-Peer file-sharing application. JitzuShare is a stand-alone application. It integrates with Jitzu. JitzuShare is the file-sharing module of Jitzu. JitzuShare is a component of the separate and versatile Jitzu application. JitzuShare allows multiple connections that search and share music, video, images, or any other digital information including photos, documents, and websites. No cookies, no ads, no pop-ups, no trackers, no third-party apps - just powerful searches and multiple file exchanges. Use JitzuShare to search and share your favorite music, videos, pictures or any other files. Jitzu allows click-and-drag view creation of ANYTHING from ANYWHERE on the Web or local PCs. ANY file or piece of a web site can be selected and dragged into your own single Jitzu screen. Create your own personalized web site and view of information from: Web sites; chat, audio/video; applets; images; games; and documents. Click and drag any digital item into your Jitzu View. Save your view as a Jitzu Project to trade with others in Jitzu Communities.

Morpheus Preview Edition continues the Morpheus tradition of providing a full-featured and easy-to-use P2P application that allows users to share content across the Morpheus Users Network. This new edition of Morpheus utilizes open protocols established by the Gnutella developers, and enables users to directly communicate with each other and search for any type of digital file across the network. Users can control CPU utilization, word filters, upload limits, and file sharing. Morpheus also simultaneously transfers content files from multiple sources for fast downloads of large files, even from users with slower connection speeds.

NetMess This is a totally decentralized file sharing system. It does not rely on a master server. In this respect, it's closer to the Gnutella network technology and can't be stopped or restricted. This has the ability to run on LAN environments and to serve as an information sharing system for small- to middle-size companies. It will allow everyone to search and retrieve documents without having to remember their exact location. All file types can be shared and everything is anonymous. There are no names or identifiers involved and it can run through HTTP proxies and firewalls, both in and outbound. This client can run on any platform supporting Java, only the node is CPU dependant. Download @ www.go.to/netmess

iMesh is a search tool that lets you locate and download audio, images, documents, and video files from a growing community of seven million people. The files themselves are located on the computers of other iMesh users who have agreed to share their files, and can be transferred from one desktop to another without a server in between. Downloads are very fast and can be resumed later if a file's owner disconnects from iMesh. The patent-pending iMesh technology allows you to download files from up to seven users at the same time.

FileMiner File Miner scans the Fast-Track and other file sharing protocols in order to find files to be shared on the internet. With File Miner you never login to a server so you can search and find files anonymously. File Miner harvests lost bandwith normally used by Kazaa and Morpeous and other server central programs, which allows your system to D/L 2x to 3x faster then you normally would when using other programs. With File Miner you need not wait into a Remote Que or Search for other sources. You find it, you download it. This technology allows you to download directly from the other peer as soon as you locate the file you want. In Fact, the person you are acquireing the file from does not even know you are downloading from them. So no trade ratios, or last minute other user transfer cancellations. Find files you never dream existed, Find others you wish you never knew existed. It took me a while to figure out how it worked so be prepared to work with it. And it does take a long time to scan IPs for users.

eDonkey2000 has become an unlikely hero in the P2P world. Few anticipated this once humble network would achieve a userbase in excess of 100,000 users. eDonkey has been able to grow at a substantial rate and avoid legal wranglings with the RIAA due to its unique, OpenNap/DirectConnect style network. The developers create the server and client software, however it's up to the people to maintain the network. By allowing multisource-segmented downloading, the ability to search and download any file type, and access to the global resources of over 100,000 concurrent users, eDonkey has become one of the largest and most valued P2P networks. (mp3newswire review)

URLBlaze URLBlaze is a multi file search system integrating the power of verified Web search and the robustness of its decentralized, peer-to-peer search system. Rather then giving access to your hard-drive and share files, URLBlaze shares the URLs of files you have downloaded using your browser or download manager. This new technology is called URL Sharing. URLBlaze also does a parallel search over many major search engines over the net to help you find the file you want. Every http search result is verified! Among the new features on Version 2.7: File Preview, Firewalled computers now share their URLs, better search capabilities and more.

Blubster a newer music-sharing network that is quickly attracting a user community. Blubster uses a peer-to-peer network similar to Gnutella, with a new private protocol that works without a central server. Once your client program connects with another client, you can search and download MP3 files from the entire network of users. Blubster offers an easy-to-use interface enabling fast searches, resumable downloads, multi-source downloads, chat and voice chat, an internal MP3 player, and more. Blubster facilitates an anonymous community and does not compile, store, or otherwise retain data about users, searches, or files. The newest version works in three languages: English, Spanish, and German. Blubster 1.2.3 has a improved interface, better performance, lower memory usage, and many new options.

Methodus 3 is a program that serves many features and comes with many components. One of its major features is Crapster, which is a file sharing network similar to Napster, except with access to every file type. Other features include tools like FTP and Web servers, CD burning and ripping utils, a browser that prevents pop-ups, games, and even an Anonymous Mailer. One of the major aspects to this program is that it is also an AOL/AIM enhancement. It has components like Color Faders, IM Managers, and many other AOL/AIM-dependent features to enhance one's online experience.

LimeWire is a software tool that enables peer-to-peer file sharing on the Gnutella Network. Similar to the popular Napster service, it enables the sharing, searching, and downloading of MP3 music files. LimeWire also lets users share and search for all types of computer files, including movies, pictures, games, and text documents. Other features include the ability to push uploads and downloads, BearShare QHD compatibility, the ability to measure the speed of remote hosts and preview files while downloading, and a chat feature.

SongSpy is a new MP3-sharing program that rewards its users with actual prizes for sharing music via its Karma System. If you fancy yourself an unselfish music enthusiast, SongSpy is the gateway to 24/7 downloads. SongSpy takes the work out of expanding your music library. It offers an enhanced protocol, a smaller, but cleaner interface, a totally rewritten client code, numerous server enhancements, and much more.

Note: Many of these programs contain spyware or adware.

To do something legal for a change, I've checked out this site: http://www.tonspion.com/

Their purpose is to ferret out useful free MP3 downloads from all sorts of sites. Some are well-known hits, others are album tracks. The most unusual site it linked to was the Kickers Offenbach page that offers Gerry & the Pacemakers You'll Never Walk Alone, the Tote Hosen version of the same, as well as video clips of Kickers games (www.offenbacherkickers.de)

"Tonspion" is unfortunately all in German, and it involves lots of clicking. But one can find some very unusual stuff there (Elvis Costello's live version of Radio Radio, Joey Ramone's swansong, the Hives, Eva Cassidy).

I'd like to clarify that the long list of P2P thingies is a copy & paste job. My post didn't make that clear, and I'd hate to take credit (or flak) not due to me.
