    Discussion of piracy (which p2p of copyright materials is) is against forum policy.

    I use iTunes as my music playback/management app. You'll find everybody else does as well.

    Discussing P2P programs isn't against forum policy.

    Anyway, Acquisition for Mac is the endall for P2P IMO. It is a simple and attractive interface that finds what ya need.

    limewire has mac OSX version, also limewire has a open source brother called frostwire, they works better on OSX cause JAVA is build-in to the OSX system.
    aMule also works, but slow.

    Transmission/Bit Rocket are BT apps, works good, but if u need advanced function, Azureus is necessary.

    music play, i have iTunes, VLC, reaplayer, but to be honest, on OSX, iTunes is the only good choice u have as a comprehensive music manager/player, Im waiting for a winamp's OSX version tho, LOL

    I use iTunes for managing and listening to my music; and both Sound Studio and Peak Express for minor editing.

    Finale for notation.
    Digital Performer and/or Cubase for sequencing.
    Reason because it's just cool.
    SoundForge (on Windows) for editing.

    Oh, and iTunes for ripping and song management.

    i heard limewire messes up with the mac hard drive by fragmenting the data? is this what you meant by "screws with it..."

    i'm also looking for a good p2p file sharing program for my mac (new owner). why is everyone on here so PC about it...this kind of activity goes on wheter it's right/wrong, good/bad. the last time i read most artist get rich on concerts/shirts/other goods not off of record sales.

    Because it's forum policy, and although you can hate the RIAA (I certainly do, they are money scrunging *******s.). If you want to make money by selling software (which is very heavily pirated too) or music it's not fun when people want to download it for free, that to me doesn't seem really fair, even if the company in question is as big as Microsoft or Apple, they still have a right to make some money, that is the system we choose to live in.

    Now lending a CD to a friend to rip is hardly piracy and you could argue that downloading music is OK if you *really* wouldn't pay for it if you couldn't, but I suppose in that case if you like what you get for free you should then go and buy the album/donate money to the artist.
