I'm not even sure if you can make a playlist with crossfade playback included. When determining flow or whatever, crossfade playback is fine to use. I think Zoots only wondered about that but I thought I should cover the bases.

I've been using 6-second crossfade on most of my playlists, most notably this one. The songs still work fine with their normal transitions, but I think they're less jarring with the crossfade.

Maybe it's my Inner Wannabe DJ getting the best of me.

I think those few seconds at the end of a track can make the next song so much more powerful. Look at the final transition on my playlist. It gives me chills whenever I hear that transition. :cry:

Crossfades are a nice think to use when you are done. My next playlist has the most amazing crossfades. Tori Amos into The Who into The Smiths into The Doors.

That is probably my favorite moment of your list.

For example on my list, the Sigur Ros -> Sufjan transition is decent by itself, but is strengthened by a crossfade.

It's pretty much done! Just listening to the whole thing right now to make sure it flows well and so far it's pretty damn good even if I say so myself.

Hmm... now I have to think.

I couldn't fit any PJ on this playlist, so I saved one of my faves for the next one.

Hey guys! I have the album cover. But I want to write the title on it at the bottom. I tried doing this with Paint using the text box but it drops an ugly white background. Is there a better way of doing it?

On the left is a function to have a transparent background.

Uploading right now but I didn't re-tag anything. You guys can copy all my songs and then pick them and add them one by one to a playlist, right?

I'm not sure what you mean.

Axver, could you try extracting the files out of Corianderstem's 2nd zip file? It is working for me.

I mean... I didn't re-tag them like Phanan did when he made his album tag as "prog island" or something. On mine, the track numbers (or lack thereof) all correspond to the original albums they're from. So once you copy my files into itunes, they could get lost in the library until you make a playlist and add all of them in. But it shouldn't be much of a big deal. That's what I've been doing all along to listen to people's songs.
