Sansa Clip Plus 8GB | Sansa Clip+

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

Back in the day I had got a Frontier Labs Audio player… it was the Nexia predecessor to the nexblack. It really was a pretty good music player. It supported compactflash for storage (no interntal storage.) It used double A batteries and had real buttons. MP3 was the primary audio format – they had promised [...]

Morse Mp3 Ringtones

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

I’ve spent a bit of time over the last week putting some scripting together to build a new website. The site is morseringtones.com and as you might imagine there are morse code mp3 ringtones available there for download. I’ve put together a list of over 9100 names and there are 4 ringtones available for each [...]

Converting rm to mp3

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Recently I’ve run across a realmedia stream that I really want to convert to mp3 (mainly because my portable player can’t read rm files. I’ll talk about capturing rm streams in another post, but this one is going to talk about converting from rm to mp3. For starters, it’s possible to use mencoder for this [...]

The CD is dead….

Friday, October 27th, 2006

I’m tempted to say “long live the cd…”, but… EMI’s CEO has declared that the CD is dead. He does point out that you’re not likely to give your Aunt an iTunes download, so “dead” just means “in decline” in this parlance. However, I can’t help but laugh to myself of the notion that I [...]

Cutting Short, splitting or truncating mp3 files…

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

from the command line in linux… or generating them from Wavs…. So, I’ve got this CD that I’ve made and is up for sale at lulu.com traditional hymns done as “chimes”. I’ve spent quite a bit of time recording to hard drive, editing and getting the wav files as good as possible and I’ve uploaded [...]

Zoom H4 recorder becoming reality?

Sunday, October 1st, 2006

I’ve got to say, I’ve almost wondered if the Zoom H4 was true vaporware the last few days. it’s supposed to be received by various vendors (around October 1st-3rd) and I still haven’t seen ONE first hand review. I’ve seen one music site that has 7 people that have rated it on a scale of [...]

Peltor RaceTunes AM/FM Stereo radio and hearing protector

Friday, April 7th, 2006

For some time I’ve wanted a good pair of noise reducing headphones for “mowing season”. Ideally they’d have am/fm stereo so I could listen to the radio (or something broadcast from my little FM transmitter…) REALLY ideally, they’d have a way I could patch something directly into them. I’ve found such a thing from Amazon.com [...]

Recording online streams (real / wma) to mp3 format (or ogg) with mplayer

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

So, I’ve been looking back over my list of “scripts” that are pulling in audio from various news sources online for the onlineradiotv.com site. It’s also got me doing a bit more spanish language listening than I had been. In the car, I usually use an mp3 player (the nexia) with a small FM transmitter [...]

Converting spaces in filenames to underscores

Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

Linux supports long file names, in some (many?) ways better than windows. However, when I moved over to linux I had tons of files with spaces in the name. This isn’t really a problem usually, but it can be a bit annoying having to enclose the filename in quotes for everything… anyway. Most of these [...]

Automatically downloading a file mp3 with a bash script

Tuesday, December 27th, 2005

Linux systems give you many possibilities and one of them is good scheduling (cron), another is good scripting capabilities. I’ve done things with linux fairly easily that with Windows would have been next to impossible and required me to download several other things to make it happen. Anyway, I recently saw mention of a linux, [...]
