Free Music Archive
|Free Music Archive|
The Free Music Archive is a free music website.
On 5 Nov 2018, FMA's admin cheyenne_h announced that the site would be shutting down later that month:
We regret to inform you that due to a funding shortage, the FMA will be closing down later this month. ... The site may go down as early as November 9th, so now's the time to download your playlists, favorite songs, and do whatever personal archiving you need.
The shutdown was later pushed to 16 November, then to 1 December, and finally suspended entirely. On the 10th of December, it was announced that FMA had partnered with the camera gear rental platform KitSplit and would remain online indefinitely.
As of 2018-11-08 log, SketchCow called the archival of FMA "all set":
