I haven't got a lot of library at the moment, as since the last time I restarted building my music collection I've been getting a lot of stuff besides library, but I AM on slsk almost constantly, I'm keir on there.

One way to find people on there is simply to do a wishlist search for people with something you already have, you'll almost certainly find people who also have stuff you don't already have.

I still have a lot to learn about Soulseek…

Well, I've got myself back up and running on SS after myself keep forgetting to do so.  My ID is the same as here (to keep it simple) so feel free to have a look around and drop me a message and say hi and who are you on the forum.  I've set no restrictions as of today so will monitor and if my media PC is on, I'll keep SS open too.

I'll have to get to grips with it again and get some 'wanted' files as still need a few JW/Impress/Prog Music and Bruton FLAC's.

Cheers, Tony

To be honest when I’m online I go into the Library Music room but don’t expect any chat from anyone, but I have been heading there each time in login.  It’s all a bit irrelevant anyway as most users just search for the files they are looking for.

I didn't even know Soulseek was still a thing in today's cyber world....good to hear it hasn't been axed like all the others. In my very early days of discovering library music via 70's adult films/porn, Soulseek was the place I ended up ID-ing a lot of the what we all now consider library classics (through random album downloading).

Only thing with Slsk though, it's all mp3's....unless people started sharing more lossless stuff? Great memories though of the old days for me when I think of Slsk  ;D

Actually, you'll find lossless (wav/flac) there pretty regularly these days.

... I ... wondered if anyone still uses it ... and wondered if SS is still as popular as it once was ?

Cheers, Tony

Buenas tardes, Tony! I've been on Slsk forever, and it still appears to be reasonably popular. Small wonder, perhaps, as it's the last one standing of the filesharing networks with public or semi-public access that existed twenty years ago. Besides What.CD I think it was also the best of them.

... I've recently started using SoulSeek and openly share a lot of my content.  ... but as is often the case, there are those who place conditions and restrictions upon that which they want to share ...

The way in which you manage access to your share depends also on the client. I used the official Slsk client for a long time, and it allows you to restrict uploads to your buddies only while enabling other users to still see your files when they search. For me this worked quite well. When someone messaged me because he was interested in a rip I could check his share and then add him to buddies if he passed my (not very strict) criteria for access.

I switched to Nicotine+ later whose functionality is a bit different, though not by much. The main feature missing is the possibility for others to see my files in their searches even if they are not in my buddy list. I have therefore split my share into lossy and lossless files, where the former are accessible to anyone, and the latter are restricted to buddies. The slight downside is that non-buddies have no way of knowing what they could potentially get from me. But it's a reasonable compromise given the circumstances.

(Feel encouraged to give me a shout on Slsk if you want access.)

... I'm on a Mac machine and got the latest "Big Sur" operating system, SS is not working good at all now for me, and just can't find a stable full-working version for Big Sur.

Easy one. Set up a virtual machine and run the operating system and the Slsk client of your choice on it. Nicotine+ used to be a pain in the arse to set up, but not anymore. Getting the latest version 3.0.2 to run is a breeze. Recommended.

Soulseek is very important for me!! But a few days ago, I had some problem with Soulseek and I can't download nothing now!!

Try out Nicotine+ in the latest version, which I think is 3.0.2. It runs on Linux and Windows.

Cheerio!
