  1. I let iTunes organize my music library. (In the "advanced" preference window, you can choose to let iTunes do this, or you can choose to do it manually. Manual seems too much like work, but I hate that I cannot customize how iTunes organizes things). iTunes serves many functions, much to many people's annoyance. It is a bloated monstrosity, and gets more annoying and controlling and arbitrary by the year. But like any disfunctional relationship, one clings to hope like a gerbil on greased teflon, at least until something demonstratively superior comes along. The functions that iTunes provides, in decreasing order of importance to me, are the following: 1. A music file-system organizer. 2. A database management system. 3. A music player. 4. A movie player. 5. A shameless consumerism interface. 6. An iOS management system. 7. A music streamer. 8. A radio player. The list doubtless goes on. I try to use it mainly for the first two functions. As a database manager, it does pretty well. Certainly, there are quibbles about its limitations for classical music, but they haven't been deal-breakers for me. As a music file-system organizer, iTunes (if you don't disable this feature) will import all of your music into ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Music/<level_1_subdirectory>/<level_2_subdirectory> Although you can customize the first part of this path to put the files on an external drive (or elsewhere), the penultimate and final directories are determined by iTunes. The <level_2_subdirectory> takes the name of the individual album. In most cases, this makes sense. It is the <level_1_subdirectory> that brings me to tears, especially in the case of classical music. With non-classical music, things work fairly smoothly. For example, you might import an album entitled "Workingman's Dead" by the band called "Grateful Dead." In this case, all of the music files get placed in the following directory: ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Music/Grateful\ Dead/Workingman\'s\ Dead A complication might arise if I have two versions of this, perhaps the original version, and then say the 24 bit, 96kHz remaster. If I do nothing, both sets of files might wind up in the same directory. This is easily avoided if you manually change the album name to (for example) reflect the remastered content. For many consumers, this system works fine, and there is no need to worry about anything. In addition, if you wanted to find or copy your Grateful Dead collection of 52 different albums, they should all be in that same directory, each one in one of 52 subdirectories. Who could possibly object? The problem begins to arise when one discovers half of the music is in a different directory, perhaps called "The Grateful Dead". Again, this is easily fixed by editing the "Artist" entry metadata tag, removing the word "The". Kind of tedious, but not that bad. But what happens when you get one of those albums that has several different artists? Now files start to get spread all over the place. Despite having used iTunes for probably 15 years, I never picked up on how exactly the file structure is created, until I looked more closely at it yesterday. I experienced what drunks call a moment of clarity: The penultimate directory, i.e., <level_1_subdirectory>, takes on the name provided in the "Artist" metadata tag, UNLESS the rather obscurely named "Album Artist" metadata tag is also provided, in which case "Album Artist" takes precedent. In the case of classical music, the "Artist" metadata field is notoriously ill-defined. Often it makes reference to the Conductor (if any), the orchestra or quartet or whatever ensemble, perhaps the star piano player, or perhaps key figures in the Trilateral Commission. Even worse, it might be the Conductor's last name only, her or his first and last name, or initials, or who knows what else. You can wind up with 10 different directories all corresponding to Claudio Abbado, and they might have half a dozen different composer's stuff within their subdirectories, which might in turn be unhelpfully named "Symphony No. 6". In terms of a file-system hierarchy, this is a total mess. I would like all my Grateful Dead albums to be in unique subdirectories under one directory called "Grateful Dead." I don't want to have to use a relational database to find the contents of my music library. I should be able to navigate it just like any other rationally-organized filesystem. When examining my classical music library the other day, I realized that the "Album Artist" metadata tag seems to be underused. In most cases it was simply blank. In many others, it contained at least a subset of the information already in the "Artist" tag. Maybe if instead of calling this tag "Album Artist", iTunes had called it "Insert your choice for the name of <level_1_subdirectory> in here:", the solution would have been more obvious. I decided then to re-organize my classical music library, simply by copying the name of the Composer (which I dutifully included in the Composer metadata tag when first importing my music) into the "Album Artist" metadata tag field. In the case of Composers who are proportionately over-represented in my library, like Beethoven, I filled in the field with "Beethoven: Abbado" or "Beethoven: Haitink", and if I possess multiple cycles, I further differentiated this in the album titles themselves. At least now, all of the Beethoven stuff is grouped together when the filesystem hierarchy is alphabetized.

  2. For me music comes first but I'm also a movie fan. And a music movie is a territory where the two in one way or another come together. I quite often search IMDB and RottenTomatoes for the stuff I haven't seen yet. Hope this thread can be some inspiration for CA members who are interested in the genre. There are so many great music movies and it's really difficult to choose one or two as the absolutely best so I'll start with titles that simply first come to mind: Milos Forman's 'Amadeus' surely needs no introduction: Not a music movie per se but a classic Godfrey Reggio's documentary in which Philip Glass'music compliments the picture in such an organic way that it's difficult not to mention it: Spike Lee's 'Mo' Better Blues', starring Denzel Washington, soundtrack - Branford Marsalis Quartet ft. Terence Blanchard.
  3. NASA telescope has revealed largest batch of seven Earth-size, habitable-zone planets around single star! https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/02/170222130941.htm I'm asking myself just one question - what music and audio gear do they have there.? Well, maybe just one more - what would they think about MQA.?
  4. I think the title of this thread is self-explanatory. Let me start with these three songs: From the fantastic 1970 Royal Albert Hall concert. From the 'Black' Album. [video=youtube;CD-E-LDc384] I once damaged my foot tapping to the thythm while watching this DVD BTW I used to say that for me after Rage Against the Machine (meaning after circa 2000) not much happened in rock. I'd love somebody to prove me wrong.. Let's have fun!!!
  5. YouTube, it's a common resource. I'm fondest of the human voice, often searching out stripped-back on-air versions, evaluating diverse uploads... The following 3, from Andrew Bird's new album, are especially wondrous : [video=youtube;EY1-xJ0hwQM] If WFUV Public Radio productions are to your liking, explore more here. And HDMI from Panasonic Blu-ray player to Marantz Cinemarium soundbar is how I listen, watch. Sure, your method might be through a computer. But, our starting reference, YouTube's 720p Yeah, only when I'm sure its exceptional will I share—here, a personal commitment.
  6. Hi all, just letting you know that Uncle Art's new 2016 album of retro games music (remade) from games such as Starglider, Frontier Elite II, Carrier Command, Beneath A Steel Sky and Geoff Hammond's F1 Grand Prix is out now. I've heard it and it's terrific! Especially the live orchestra for Frontier's theme. The tracks are available on MP3 and FLAC format (to satisfy the HiRes audiophile within us) > A TEMPORAL SHIFT MP3 / Flac - A Temporal Shift
  7. Unlike many here, I was too young to participate in the hippy generation. However, what followed seemed like a main-stream co-optation of the recreational drug culture by the music industry. Music from groups like Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead seemed almost designed for recreational hallucinogenic drug users. It occurred to me recently that audiophiles who care enough about sound to worry one way or another about what their cables and electronics sound like in micro-detail might have pretty strong opinions, either negative or positive, about mixing music and drugs. I also recognize the reason this is not discussed on a public forum. So I thought an anonymous poll might be amusing...
  8. The following list of amps i can get cheap, just wondering wich would be best for music but also good for a cinema setup, id also like a good range of features. Yamaha RX-V650 Sony STR-DA 3300ES YAMAHA RX-V863 Onkyo TX NR906 Pioneer VSX-922 thanks in advance.
  9. Hi guys, Just thought you guys might be interested to see this. Dave Lowe had been making games music since the early 80s for a number of top videogames including Sega's Afterburner, Elite, Carrier Command, Double Dragon, Starglider, Street Fighter II, International Karate, Ghostbusters, Geoff Crammond's F1 and many more. Now he's launched a new Kickstarter aiming to take some of his music and turn it into actual proper music instead which will be released on CD & vinyl. Should be good fun!
  10. Anyone know of any good sites that offers buying DSD/FLAC files from abroad ie. outside the US? I tried to order from AcousticSounds.com and they don't allow it where I live.
  11. Hi guys, Thought you might be interested in these two impressive new Kickstarter campaigns for retro synth music remade. Check them out when you have the time! Project Sidologie - JARRE style Commodore 64 music remixes Uncle Art: Elite II Orchestral & Retrogaming Music Remakes
  12. I'm compiling a list of the best "ghetto blasters", or the best portable boomboxes. I listed what seems to be popular, do you guys have any suggestions? Enjoy. What are the best ghetto blasters? - Slant
  13. Hello, I am no audiophile, I do not know what people are on about when they talk about the treble, bass, high and lows etc etc But I do appreciate listening to good music through good headphones. So which Headphones, with a budget of $300-$400 should I get, what is the best headphone to get in that price range. Quality of sound is my priority as well as a comfort as I will be using these headphones to video edit (so I'll be wearing them for long periods at a time) My old headphones were the Creative Aurvana Live! Headphones. Does the best headphone for that price range depend on the music I listen to? Well I'll be simply plugging it into my Mac or iPhone an listening to stuff like M83- OUTRO or the occasional song on the iTunes chart etc.. Here are a couple of models that seem great when I research for a decent pair of headphones. All help is highly appreciated.

  14. Hi everyone at Computer Audiophile forum, how are you? My name is Ricardo and I would loke present you a never before seen musical software called "Sonata". The software was the result of my Final Paper in Computer Science (2010), in which I and my friend developed a software that allows reharmonize piano scores automatically. Nowadays the software is published at google play in two versions: demo (free version) and complete (paid version). Ths urls to aoo is below: Demo version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.music.sonatamobile.demo'>https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.music.sonatamobile.demo Complete Version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.music.sonatamobile Basically our software accepts a midi file as entry, convert it to a piano score and after you can select among 4 reharmonization techniques to reharmonize the score and generate different versions of it. The software allow export the piano scores as Midi or PDF too. I hope you like our software. Suggestions and criticisms are always welcome!
  15. Guys, I guess this is just a stupid question.... lol!!! Yes, I just want to know that's your favorite song! <3 Well, I view photos with Photo+, the photo viewer for mac that allows me to view photos in slideshow with background music playing. It's amazing to view photos in that way, Having all those beautiful photos and my favorite songs playing, my old memories just are called back and makes me think what lovely family & friends I have in my beautiful years. Well, my favorite song would be Green Day's Wake Me Up When September Ends. What about yours?
  16. You need two downloads, each of which is free: 1. Soundflower. Download Soundflower for Mac - Allows applications to pass audio to other applications (beta). MacUpdate.com 2. AU Lab: http://images.apple.com/itunes/mastered-for-itunes/docs/au_lab.zip Install, reboot. For use with iTunes, you need to select Soundflower 2.0 as the (virtual) output device. Open AU Lab, and set the input device to Soundflower 2.0, and the output device to what you really want (your dac, bridge, etc). <p><a href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_2013_03/58cd9bc396f76_ScreenShot2013-03-25at1_22_01PM.png.90e01153a17bf9ab18a1c81f0478e152.png" class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image"><img data-fileid="28156" src="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_2013_03/58cd9bc396f76_ScreenShot2013-03-25at1_22_01PM.png.90e01153a17bf9ab18a1c81f0478e152.png" class="ipsImage ipsImage_thumbnailed" alt=""></a></p> Click the "Create Document" button. Then select what AU interface you want. For example, this is the parametric equalizer: <p><a href="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_2013_03/58cd9bc3a406a_ScreenShot2013-03-25at1_20_24PM.png.87761bad6565dc301c264414baa11825.png" class="ipsAttachLink ipsAttachLink_image"><img data-fileid="28157" src="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_2013_03/58cd9bc3a406a_ScreenShot2013-03-25at1_20_24PM.png.87761bad6565dc301c264414baa11825.png" class="ipsImage ipsImage_thumbnailed" alt=""></a></p> Another potentially very useful option is the new Dirac AU (beta) plugin, which will allow you to use Dirac with everything: [ATTACH=CONFIG]23217[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]23219[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]23218[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]23220[/ATTACH] You can save it if you want a permanent filter.

  17. Hey, Anyone know where I can buy CD or losless downloads of Rue de Soleil Emotions album?
  18. If you haven't been following this story, and are concerned about artistic (or any other form of) freedom of expression, this is about a Russian punk rock group who have been jailed following a sham trial for criticizing Putin. Amnesty International has adopted the three women convicted of thought-crimes as "Prisoners of Conscience", a designation the politically impartial human rights organization reserves for the most blatant forms of political incarceration. The full Amnesty International press release describes the situation in detail.
  19. I am teaching a class entitled Power and the Passion (how music can change the world) for two weeks to teenagers about American music. In effect, it's how music can cause change, upheavals, different outlooks - socially, politically, culturally, etc. - that is often more powerful than established authority. I have my own list of artists and songs to share with my students, but please feel free to list 5-10 artists, songs and a few reasons why you choose what you did. Thanks.
