How to Enjoy Music from Your Computer

Technology wise, music has come a long way.  The first ever recorded sound was recorded by Thomas Edison and the first ever recorded song was recorded by a French printer and bookseller; Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville.  Music technology went through lots of changes and advancements since then and today you can listen to music in just about any vehicle and on just about any electronic device.  You can stream music through your phone, listen to music on the radio, enjoy your favorite tunes on an iPod and if you like the traditional way, you can still attend live concerts.  One of the best ways to enjoy music is with your computer.  When you play music from your computer you can view music videos or play a large variety of music for endless hours but the best reason to enjoy music on your computer is so you can alter the sound quality according to your needs and enjoy higher quality sound from various sources without having to struggle with CD’s.

Copy your CD’s to MP3 / MP4

Yes, it is completely legal to copy your CD’s to digital form as long as you bought the original CD’s and as long as you don’t share these copied files with friends or sell them online.  It is much safer to transfer your music to digital form so your CD’s will remain scratch free for longer.
