Any experience with the PlusDeck, or other cassette-tape-to-computer solutions?

Has anyone used/known anyone who has used the PlusDeck? It's a device for putting sounds from cassette tapes onto your computer. I want to do this primarily as a sampling of sounds into a sound-editing program, and possibly as a way to record entire songs onto the computer. Any reviews? Any idea of the quality? I'm clueless here.

Streaming Organic Music

It's the last straw, I'm officially tapping my toes to U2's Vertigo, courtesy of Morning Comes Eccectic on KCRW, this has got to stop. My seraches for streaming MP3's has been a bust. I listen to Flaresound and SomaFM, but really would like to find some more organic music for here at work. Bossa Nova would be great. I've completely given up on streaming jazz, I can't find anything that isn't either smooth (gak!) or includes Sun Ra into the mix (beating a trombone to death with a live chicken, while perhaps having artistic merit, isn't good office music.)

Latin jazz? Be-bop? Brazillian music?

Only qualifiers. Must be 128K stream, must be web based, (I don't want traffic reports from Helsinki interrupting my Metafiltering) Anyone got any tips?

What's a good flash-based mp3 player with voice recorder and FM radio?

I'm looking for flash-based mp3 player (256 or 512MB) with a voice recorder and FM radio. Also need it to work as a USB mass storage device. So far I'm considering the iRiver iFP-100 series or the Creative Muvo TX FM. Are there any other good quality options I should consider? And what do you think of these two options? If they both work fine, the prices are a lot better for the muvo. Thanks!

Podcasting Platforms

Podcasting. Yes I get the basic idea behind it (endless hours of "radio" programming available for my automatic download through RSS and replay on my computer or iPod), but I'm being stupid about the software. Do I go with iPodder, or iPodderX? What's the diff? Is there a site that reviews/recommends in this infant medium?

Modded XBox

Recently The Howie linked to a place that sells modded Xboxen. My question is--if I get one of these modded boxes, can I just use it as a turnkey solution for running a little dual-boot computer that can emulate a bunch of game platforms, play my mp3s with a decent interface, and play quicktime movies that I've ripped with a reasonable amount of clarity? (oh yeah, and save xbox games to the HD). Or, is it one of those deals where I *could* do most of that stuff, but I'd spend a heck of a lot of time messing with config files and otherwise slowly morphing into a Eunuchs Guru...

Or would I just be better off getting a cheap little mini-itx computer and putting an lcd monitor on it?

In iTunes, why do songs I uncheck not play during shuffled playback?

In iTunes, why do songs I uncheck not play during shuffled playback? I just want to uncheck songs I don't want on the iPod and let 'em play normally in the library. It's easier than making a playlist for the iPod each time I add new albums. Alternatively, how do you manage your library when it exceeds the size of your iPod?

Automate file saves with CDex

CDex question. I'm liking it in all regards, but still banging my head over one convenience feature. Isn't there a way to get it to encode a CD as MP3s, and drop the MP3s into a folder with the artist or album title? All I can get it to do is dump MP3 files into its generic "output" folder, and it's slowing down my mass ripping. Help a stupid CDex newbie!

Search for mp3 on Google

My google-fu has left me.

Once, long ago, I found a web page (a weblog entry?) that described how one might search for mp3s (or other media files) via google, by asking google to reveal all mp3 files hosted in the index of a directory on an Apache-based web server. I can't remember how to do this.

Can anyone help me remember this trick? Direct me to the page that talks about it so that I can bookmark it permanently?

Should I record DJ sets with Hi-MD or mp3? Is it easy to get music off the MD player and convert it?

Hi-MD vs mp3? I'm looking to buy something to record DJ sets with. I've been using my somewhat trusty Creative Jukebox for a while now, but it's time to move on. So, do I get an iPod or a Hi-MD Walkman? Does Sony "own" my music if I record to Hi-MD? That is, will I be able to get music off the MD player and convert it to other formats and whatnot?

How can I make mp3s meant to lead into each other actually lead into each other without pausing first?

Ripping a CD that has tracks that lead into each other and then converting to MP3 has presented me with a problem. When I try to play the MP3s back in order there's a slight stagger when the next track starts (not a crossfade or optional pause), where on the audio CD the transition would not be noticeable. I'd like to either eliminate this error and keep the individual MP3s or rip the CD as one big audio file and convert that to one big MP3. Advice? [specs inside] [more inside]
