Today we feature another private torrent tracker which is heavily underrated but has excellent, unique content. In our last mention of MakeGreatMusic (MGM), we categorized it as a ‘music' torrent tracker’. This is only partly true because MGM tracks stuff that most other normal music trackers doesn't have – stuff that’ll help you ‘create’ music. It is also one of the best BitTorrent trackers on the planet for both fiction and non fiction audiobook torrents. MakeGreatMusic crew recently launched MGM V2 with lots of new features and a completely new site layout. For those looking to get in, public registrations are currently open as well.

Even though you might have never heard of it, MGM is not necessarily a small private tracker. As of 6/6/2009 the site has over 4200 active members and tracks close to 2000 torrents. The number of indexed torrents is actually a lot more than 2000 (around 4500). A small issue that arose during the transition to MGM v2 has caused some of the torrents to go ‘dead’. However even the ‘lost’ torrents are seemingly being added to the to the tracker – to see them all select ‘including dead’ option in the search filter.

As for the content on MGM, this tracker is heaven for audiobook fans. There are over 1500 audiobook torrents (both fiction and non fiction – this number could go as high as 3000 once lost torrents are all added back to the tracker) currently indexed on MGM. In addition, there are a lot of material that’ll help you create music - music instruction books, guitar/bass tabs, sheet music, music documentaries, lick libraries and other similar torrents are plentiful on this tracker. The following screenshot captures a part of MGM’s torrent index:

This site’s layout has gone through significant enhancements with the launch of MGM v2. It now features a sleek new top toolbar, a fully customizable start page and of course a new stylesheet.

As we mentioned earlier MGM is currently open to the public - user limit of the site has seemingly increased from 5k to 10k with the launch of MGM v2. This is good news for those who were waiting to get into this tracker including a number of people who left invite requests in our previous thread :p.
