These days people use their home computers for just about many things you can think of. This includes the capability to share music. One of the easiest and most efficient software programs for sharing music is named Acquisition and it is compatible with the Macintosh. You can download and upload music at the same time. There is a rating system so you can feel confident sharing music with those you do not know but have good feedback.

Acquisition is a free program that you can access, but you will have to learn to accept the various advertising messages. It is really worth it though because it is one of the very ideal programs out there for sharing music. The files have been verified so you do not have to worry about receiving or sending out any type of virus when you’re using Acquisition to access music on your computer.

Most people whoever access music online are familiar with iTunes, and Acquisition is also compatible with it. I use them both to play music while on my computer or when I am having a party. Even my kids are able to access the music library and listen to what they want from these two programs.

When you’ve a large library of music stored on your computer it can become difficult to locate particular songs. The ideal program for this is known as Azureus because it allows you to share various types of files. I mainly use Acquisition when I want to access new music and then switch to Azureus when I need to find a particular song or those songs by a particular artist.

I can tell you with confidence that these are among the ideal programs available for sharing music. I have tried most of them out there to view what they’ve to offer but these stand out from the rest. Even Napster and Limewire just do not measure up. You may want to try them all out for yourself but I am positive you will get the same results as I have.

The issue of sharing music on your computer comes with some issues that you need to be aware of. Watch out for those whoever want to share the music you’ve paid for and have to offer but they do not give anything back in return. You also need to be careful not to step on any toes. There are controversial issues right now about the copyright laws for music. Make sure you only share music that you’ve paid for.
