G’day Drop pundits!
I am ‘whitedragem’, an Australian ‘technologist/geek’ who is here to offer some common, and some uncommon knowledge, to help those wanting to build a vast audio library filled with high quality sound files.
CDs? Yes CDs => as they will allow ripping onto just about any audio playback device, usually via a computer and specific software; that allows album art/tags, heck even lyrics, to live with your High Def master files.
Why CDs? Because they can be bought second hand for less than a dollar, and if the average user spent $10-15 dollars a month (equivalent to a music subscription), with the typical cost of $1-2 netting 10-20 tracks, this would equate to having a large collection of lossless music, in a relatively short amount of time.
A collection that can jump ecosystems (say ‘from iTunes’) to any future equipment that a user may consider, whilst also giving file freedoms, like ‘mixing’ into iMovie..
This header is a placeholder. The article will form over the next few days.
hopes are- a community brainstorm; edits to first posts to incorporate future suggestions, and expanded links and suggestions that other Drop participants also recommend.
the ‘placeholder’ nature of this heading is for ‘dragems testing purposes. (Eg can I create a poll for ‘votes’ on future ‘how to’ guides?; do I need a guide to link to (like this one) if making a poll?
its’ just me tinkering...
the seven ‘to be edited posts’ after this one will be to allow for the detail that this article intends to go to, with visual aids, and I believe there is an 8 photo limit per post, so I will ‘claim the first 8 posts’, and then update accordingly.
please, patience for the article- it is given free, and I would like it to be easy access/readable. So some time in editing and formatting is required. It is storyboarded presently, hence me toying with these pages, and learning the website etc’
the article will be ready to read when this text is no longer here ;-)
Article coming (due prior to October)
