MTT 285 / Pump It Up Some

MTT285 Spectrogram

More electro & miami bass this week. Florida & a few detours into Detroit. Nothing new I'm afraid, the most recent tracks here are by Ashrock, Code Rising, and JR10.

This mix contains one track with some profanity at around the 40 minute mark. (I forgot to give a warning in the vocal intro, sorry).

Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download this mix. This mix is also available at mixcloud.

Notebook 5

Posting to celebrate another full notebook. #5, photographed and ready to be stored on the shelf.

This one contains show notes for MTT and personal notes covering 2020/09 thru 2022/07. Ran out of ballpoint pens halfway through, switched back to mechanical pencil. The pages alternate between mix notes and a diary, a log of daily events.

Always happy to fill a notebook.

Music File Management 3: Playback with CMUS

CMUS on my computer in Library View playing a song by Aural Float

The C* Music Player (AKA CMUS) is my preferred music player and library program. It's lightweight, highly configurable, and is controlled via the keyboard (all things I like). It works well with my directory structure and standardized tags. And it supports a wide variety of formats & seems to handle large collections well.

This short post will go over my CMUS configuration, including how I have it set up to edit tags from the library views. This is the final part of a three part series, the first part covered how I organize my music files and the second how I manage their tag metadata.
