    "This software works effectively but can be found for free on many other sites. This is a somewhat useless download, and you're not paying a few dollars for it. It's 12$ for a product that can be used on random websites for exactly what it does. It's simply not worth it."

    "I wanted to download quite a few songs and ended up coming across this awesome program called Mp3jam. It has thousands of songs available and works by acquiring the best mp3 files you can find on YouTube. It is very simple to install and gives you access to countless songs. I've been absolutely addicted to this program ever since I've started using it as I've been introduced to all kinds of amazing new artists I've never even heard of before. It only deals in the mp3 format so if you're looking for mp4 format you may be out of luck. However, if you're a music lover like I am, you've got to check out this awesome program!"

    " I am always playing around with making videos and uploading them to Youtube. I was always looking for a good resource to improve my videos by adding music and specialty sounds. Then by chance I found digccmixer. What a resource, and what a price! I can't believe there is this much material available by just giving a donation. I also think that there is no project too big or small. "

    "I was listening to music on SoundCloud the other day and really wanted to download a specific song and wasn't sure how to go about until I found this pretty handy Google Chrome extension called Soundcloud Downloader. Once you have it installed all you need to do is load up your favorite SoundCloud song and click the download button. If you don't want to use the extension, you can also just go to their website and put a link to the song you want into the URL box and click the download button. I love the fact that I can get high quality mp3 files of my favorite songs from SoundCloud. If you use SoundCloud a lot like I do, this extension is a must have. However, of you want your song file in mp4 format, this extension isn't going to help you as it doesn't support that format. Even though I have not tried it personally, this extension can also work on other websites outside of SoundCloud according to reviews (e.g. YouTube)."
