Chapter 2. Exploring the Different Ways ... > Downloading Digital Tracks—Legally

Downloading Digital Tracks—Legally

Well, what some people don’t like about ripping from CDs is having to buy the entire compact disc in the first place—and then dispose of it when the ripping is done. It’s not just a matter of waste; it’s also an issue of being forced to purchase all those tracks you don’t want in order to get the few you do.

This is one of the reasons why purchasing digital music online has really taken off. You can buy just those tracks you want and skip the rest of the album filler. This helps keep your costs down (spending 99 cents for one track is better than $9.99 or more for an entire album’s worth) and reduces the amount of storage space necessary for your digital collection. It also helps focus your digital library; you don’t have to shuffle past all those unwanted tracks to get to your favorites.
