Amazon Launches Autorip – Buy A Cd Get The Mp3 Version Free

By on January 11, 2013

The arrival of digital music players and MP3 in general took a drastic turn. Selling songs and albums online has been growing rapidly, up to this time dominated by not only musical consumption across platforms like iTunes, but also increasingly popular streaming companies like Spotify. Amazon has kept in defense at all times, offering music in physical format, and streaming online via Amazon Cloud Player platform (but only serves to music itself). Today, Amazon reinforces its commitment to the digital format by launching AutoRip, a spectacular solution that allows consumers to download MP3 discs they have acquired from their website even from the past.

Although the idea looks simple, it is one of the biggest major changes in digital music. Also, it reinforces the music industry digital and physical format.
AutoRip has two spectacular functions. The first ensures that any physical disk that you can buy on Amazon, you can also download the mp3 immediately and free. Explaining a bit more, it means that if you buy a music CD, you can download the songs of purchase immediately, even before Amazon sends the disc. But the second function is the most striking, as it ensures that not only you can download the discs we buy from today, but you can download in MP3 any disc that we bought on Amazon from 1998 until today, quality audio at 256 Kbps. This is amazingly extraordinary.

All these songs discs we buy and we bought ourselves sync with Amazon Cloud Player (without taking space of our free storage capacity or the other paid), so we can listen via streaming or download discs from this platform. Of course, the list of available disks AutoRip support is still quite limited, with only 50,000 titles, which are currently in your database. Nevertheless, little by little, Jeff Bezos firm promises up this number.

Unfortunately, AutoRip launch is limited to the United States, though this is temporary. We hope shortly be announcing its availability in Europe and worldwide.
