iTunes 7 completely eclipses iTunes 6. I mean, how cool is the album cover view thing?



Cool. And FINALLY I can listen to bootlegs/Pink Floyd/Beatles/etc. without that annoying gap.

Oh shitz, it recognizes the MP3 player? I thought iTunes didn't recognize 3rd party MP3 players....hmm I might go buy a cheapie flash memory player then

I know, I know - I'm slowly filling out my Pink Floyd library.... I also like the fact that you can have folders in the lefthand pane now to sort crap as you've done.

OK, you can do the smooth fade out of songs. Go to preferences, playback. Find Crossfade Playback. You can set it up to 12 seconds which means that 12 seconds before the song ends it starts a slow fade. The next song will fade in over the fade out. Kinda cool.

It's a good thing I still have your mailing address somewhere. Expect to have a very Floydian Christmas. And yeah, it's great being able to organise your playlists and shit.

Does that fade-out thing work on iPods as well? I know it works on iTunes, but I wasn't aware it worked with the iPod as well. If so, even more reason to get a new iPod this Christmas! The crossfading thing is useful to have when you're listening to your playlist at random, and will obviously be good for Numb's DJing.

You know what, I think you're right. I just played around with the iPod after adjusting the settings in iTunes and it doesn't seem to work on the iPod. Hm.

I am a DJ in San Francisco (home of the iPod, baby!) and this is what you really want:

Yeah basically you need



Or alternatively just skip the two faders and use the iPod volume wheels to control the fade-in fade out - though it might be a bit rougher.

iPod in honor and all, but you´re the first iPod DJ I see.

The only alternative to vinyl records is using laptops, quite a few DJs do it, ie. The Arabian Prince of the N.W.A. who uses both because he´s tired of carrying 500 vinyl records in his bag.

Imo you also need to adjust the crossfades manually, there´s no use in pre-programming a set and its crossfades because a DJ interacts with the people and realizes what they need to hear to keep them on the dancefloor.
