Most of the big names (and especially the very
big names) quit hanging around at forums altogether. Some of their older music that used to be part of the MLP Music Archive can now be found on Pony.fm
. Newer stuff is often only available on Bandcamp, and if you don't want to pay for it, you have to rip it from YouTube with abysmal audio quality due to two- or three-fold lossy compression. If you're lucky, then they offer free downloads with links below their YouTube videos.
That said, some don't even make pony music anymore for various reasons (moved on, contractually forbidden to make fan music, mobbed out of the fandom by their haters...).
Old brony, older than old school.

No FL Studio, no VSTs. No Skype, no YouTube.
