Amazon beginning to "Auto Rip" digital files when you purchase music CDs

Buy a CD from Amazon, get the digital files free

| Audio, Sound & Speakers News | Posted: Jan 10, 2013 8:32 pm

Today Amazon announced that it will begin giving free digital music files when customers purchase physical CD versions. The AutoRip program is basically Amazon's plan to get the older generation to begin migrating from CD players to MP3 players.

The program gives CD customers a digital version of their purchase at the exact time of purchase when buying CD based music. As an added incentive, any music purchased since 1998 on Amazon is also available to be downloaded in MP3 form.

 

Not all music will be available for AutoRip though, not all albums and even some songs on specific albums will be omitted from the program as Amazon is still working out deals with music labels. We are sure that Amazon will eventually sort things out though, so that we can all enjoy both our CD's and digital files at the same time.
