SoundPlaybackDeviceFilter: I need to play back audio for a specific purpose. Please tell me what devices (mp3 player, sampler, etc.) have worked for you!
I'm looking for something that will be able to play back either an uncompressed WAVE file or that will record an actual audio signal for later playback. It has to be totally shock/shake-proof, and it must be able to automatically stop after every track/file and wait for input to start again. Preservation of sound quality is absolutely essential. If any of you have experience with such a device, please share. [more inside]

For a few years now I've noticed a sample that I believe is the same in two songs. Posse in Effect by the Beastie Boys, and Take it Slow by Technotronic (scroll down to Pump up the Jam)... Each page has a sample to listen to. It seems to be a slow sax sample. I'm not sure, but that's what I think it is. Is it the same sample? If so, does anyone know where it's sampled from?

[SchoolOfRockFilter] I'm teaching an EFL class of four high school students in rural Taiwan. There's a reading on music history about early African-American musical idioms (blues, gospel, ragtime, early jazz). It's TERRIBLY dull reading, especially considering names like Duke Ellington and Ma Rainey mean absolutely nothing to them. To liven it up a bit, I'd like to make a mix CD with 5-6 songs, print up the lyrics, and teach them that. What songs would you suggest? [more inside]
The documentary Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul introduced me to the Turkish rap music of Ceza (Bilgin Özçalkan). While I like the sound of it, I have no idea what is being said, and some of the song titles make me a bit nervous that I might be enjoying something dodgy (and exposing friends to it). Can anyone who speaks Turkish translate this? [more inside]

Which classical stringed musical instrument should I learn to eventually join an amateur string quartet?
I'd like to learn a classical stringed musical instrument and eventually join an amateur string quartet. I'm an adult with decent musical ability and a good sense of pitch, but no background with stringed (especially bowed) instruments. I'd be equally interested in any of the stringed instruments typically found in a string quartet. Which instrument should I choose? Which instrument would make me most valuable to a potential quartet? Are there more adult amateurs playing one than another? Any advice on learning a stringed instrument as an adult?
