Your own iTunes radio station

My friend and coworker Fred pointed me to: the Do-It-Yourself Smart Radio Station. The general gist is that you set up several smart playlists that feed off a core playlist of your favorite tracks, then you randomize through these smart playlists. The effectively giving you a “radio station” of your favorite tracks. Lots of cool ways to tweak this idea! I don’t know why I never really poked around the smart playlists, but they seem really powerful. So, I’ve set this up, and I’m giving it a try.

iScratch

iDunnoguys…maybe you need a better demo to really show off why iScratch is worth $70? The problem here is that the people who know anything about scratch djing are going to think this product is kind of… cheating? And the people who don’t know what’s what would be diluting the culturality of what scratch djing is all about. There’s some interesting sample manipulation glitch potential here, but… $70? seriously?

I mean, I guess everything’s fair game. We have virtual saxophone instruments, and we have virtual guitar instruments… even the very best of these end up sounding cold and phony to some degree. It all sort of reminds me of what American cheese is labelled under the brand name: “cheese food product” Not actual cheese. Cheese food product.
