Default Re: Lightfoot on sugarmegs.org

There are several issues on the proverbial grill here.....

On the tech side we have some offerings that are available to download, but they are huge wma files. while others can only be accessed ala streaming audio, and therefore we need to use something to record essentially what we are hearing (what the computer is hearing to be more exact). Then the issue of separating large, multi-track recordings into single, usable tracks.

I appreciate the input from John and Cathy, as they obviously have much knowledge and experience in this field. I appreciate they're taking their time to share with the rest of us how to go about these things.

On the music side; the botton line is I'd like to end up with clean compilations of records that are of good quailty sound, play in proper order, and can be used on burned CDs or MP3 players.

For example, I've enjoyed the 68' Filmore West show immensely on my drive to and from work this past week. That's what it's all about.... enjoying the music in our everyday lives!

Currently, I'm working on separating the individual tracks from the demos offering on Sugarmegs. 32 tracks to do.... it's a bunch, but well worth the effort.

Just remember, my friends, it's a journey and not a race!!!

Very well said Pete, I agree, taking these wonderful CD's with me in my car makes it fun to drive again. It's like as if it was 1973 all over, when I first got my Driver's Licence.

Yes Yes Yes Peter
But for the man or woman who has everything playing mp3s on your car stereo is old hat
No doubt some of you have mastered the trick of getting a Gord mp3 to play when your cell/mobile phone rings:
I understand that Charlene has hers so aranged that broken dreams.mp3 plays whenever Gord phones her!!!
I was however delighted to read this link on my daily tech republic newsletter
Video: How to download MP3s to your car horn
Horntones FX-550 mp3 car horn
http://i.zdnet.com/flash/cnb_video.swf&OBT_fname=cnb_video.swf
Now you can customize your auto's alert
CNET's Brian Cooley shows off new tech at the 2007 SEMA show in Las Vegas: a way to download MP3s to your car horn. If you hate other people's booming car audio systems, Horntones might push you right over the edge

If you could achieve this which song would you choose to be played whenever you tooted.
No Gord did not write toot toot tootsie goodbye!!!!

Another simple method, I like simple, for the shows available for download on darkstar or wherever. For iTunes users: you can simply choose from file "add file to library" and select the .wma file you downloaded. iTunes will then ask if you want to convert to aac format and add to your iTunes library. If you say yes it performs the task. Once in your iTunes library it can then be burned to disk if you want. But once in the library and synced to your iPod you're good to go. Of course it's one big track but what the hey ?
