"There is a Light That Never Goes Out - Schneider TM - Debaser"

While this song is a cover of There is a Light That Never Goes Out, the correct title is The Light 3000.

The clockwork orange track was actually entitled 'orange theme' and was originally released on the F.A.C.T. album by Carl Cox. It is actually a remix of Theme from Clockwork Orange by DJ Tiesto, which is itself a remix of the theme from Clockwork orange by Wendy Carlos.

Wasn't there one where Funko added one or two Verdena songs on my behalf, after I gave him the CDs at a London and/or Reading meeting?

30-06-2008, 11:53:20
I don't think he's got to that one yet.

30-06-2008, 11:56:29
Unless that's #7 and #8 of LWP7

Immortal Wombat
30-06-2008, 13:06:06
There's no mention of MoSe tracks in the LWP7 organisation thread (http://www.counterglow.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=21277), but there were bonus tracks added to the end of that CD, so it's possible. (I don't have the CDs to check.) There's no more to come though. LWPX was the last one, 18 months ago.

Immortal Wombat
30-06-2008, 13:14:09
Wait, no. #7 and #8 are Protein and KG's submissions. No idea where MoSe's tracks went.

30-06-2008, 15:38:44
Track 8 is:

Ascii.Disko - Cool

30-06-2008, 16:05:58
I recall there was a thread where Funko posted that a track came from me, and Mr.Bas commented it.
It was shortly after one of the CG meeting I attended, it should be trackable...

oh, well, I was jsut curious, not important

01-07-2008, 12:05:25
LWPXmas track 7 was By the Well of Living and Seeing by Asva

Mr. Bas
04-07-2008, 13:57:11
The Xmas track 5 is Park by Opgezwolle. I don't recall at the moment what other track I submitted, I'll let you know when I do. Also, I remember that there indeed was a Verdena track by MoSe in one of the LWP's, but I have no idea when or how or what.

Mr. Bas
04-07-2008, 14:20:44
Just checked - track number 9 is Alien Boy by The Wipers.

Still, overdue for another I think

Scabrous Birdseed
05-07-2008, 16:04:33
There's gotta be a better and more straightforward way of doing these I still think, now that even Laz is on broadband. I'm thinking maybe iMeem or something.

05-07-2008, 16:31:22
Or upload songs onto youtube...?

Scabrous Birdseed
05-07-2008, 16:32:36
Okay, barring a perfect custom-made solution I'm thinking maybe we do this:

We set up a blog where we give each track a single post, and let people comment as if they were commenting on a blog post. Each track can be uploaded to, say, imeem, so that it can both be listened to online and downloaded.

Would that work?

Scabrous Birdseed
05-07-2008, 18:42:45
Or we could just do what we did last time and make a zip of all the files, distributed via ZShare or YouSendIt or torrents. The commenting totally broke down that time, though.

I'm thinking maybe we could set up a more continuous system - a "look what I've just discovered" type thing where people can drop in and out. Old P2P software Audiogalaxy used to have a "sharing group" feature where you could specify tracks that were then downloaded to all users. I don't know if there's anything like that now, and of course it'd have to be anonymous, but I think the ideal would be a big, shared folder we can all drop unidentified files into from time to time, with different themes every month or so.

This sounds like a good idea. I'm pretty interested in being involved in this, so if whatever we do could be Mac friendly, I'd be much obliged.... :)

I can collect and post if someone else pops a theme.

Immortal Wombat
05-07-2008, 20:07:41
Couldn't we just have an Uploader account which anyone can use? That would keep it anonymous for everyone and make less demand of any one person.

Scabrous Birdseed
05-07-2008, 21:35:59
True. But last time the task of anonymising MP3s (which involves about 10 seconds of ID3 tag editing) proved beyond some people, I got at least one Wav file, a couple of low-bitrate MP3s I had to re-download to give everyone a fair chance etc. etc.

Plus it'll probably be a neater package with one person. Not sure if that's necessary, but it looks good.

Is there a convenient software application to solve the persistant bug of idle bastards never giving any feedback?

Immortal Wombat
06-07-2008, 16:47:38
Set up a device to send them a strongly-worded email each morning?

One could probably write a Wordpress plugin to prevent people from downloading new tracks until they'd commented on previous ones.

Scabrous Birdseed
06-07-2008, 16:54:23
We could just do that manually - people who don't comment and don't feedback on their own tracks are excluded from the following round.

Scabrous Birdseed

We need a theme first.

I thought the blog thingy would help the commenting. I think a lot of people just don't want to spend an hour reviewing 15 tracks, 5 minutes during a break at work is much easier.

So what exactly are you going to do with that blog?

Each track is uploaded to, say, iMeem or DivShare or something.

Each is then posted inside a blog post. People comment in the blog posts as if it were a normal blog. Makes sense or not?

16-07-2008, 18:33:47
Yup, sounds good. As long as they then posted into a thread on here that they'd posted a new blog so people new about it.

17-07-2008, 07:56:25
I've never heard of iMeem or DivShare. You can just upload and link to copywrited material? :confused:

Scabrous Birdseed

iMeem will cut your sound sample to thirty seconds if they discover it, but in practice only do so for correctly named major-label stuff - DivShare officially doesn't accept copyrighted material but in practice doesn't give a fuck. (Debaser who follows MP3 blogs will know what I'm talking about.) Something like zShare or YouSendIt would also work but don't have nifty flash players.

17-07-2008, 08:33:35
OK cool.

17-07-2008, 10:17:30
I wouldn't mind getting in on this. Sounds like a good idea, all told.

17-07-2008, 12:17:41
Maybe we colud use this?

17-07-2008, 12:28:54
:lol: 37 Signals are the guys that developed Rails which is our new development environment.

17-07-2008, 13:36:41
Are they shit? On closer inspection that link I posted does seem a bit pointless and crap.

17-07-2008, 13:57:33
Well Rails is great.

Shamesongs (http://downwithtunes.blogspot.com/2008/07/shamesongs.html)

Funnily enough I was thinking something like this might be good even before Scabby blogged about it. Of course, he might have outed his picks.

God, it was hard enough picking five for someone as opinionated yet commercial-pop-liberal as me, let alone pick another one that's better than all of those. :)

(Notice one of the tracks was from LWP1! Good going, Funko, fucking with my brain like that.)

25-07-2008, 13:07:16
I did notice that yes, made the whole exercise worthwhile. :D

Honestly, I think it's only you on here that reads my blog. We could do it anyway if no-one is tempted to click the link, or if people don't care that they know which entry is mine.

25-07-2008, 16:32:11
Coolio. So how's it going to work with the Blog?

Lazarus and the Gimp
25-07-2008, 17:02:05
I'm not ashamed of anything in my collection. This could be tricky.

25-07-2008, 17:08:41
I'm not either especially. I think the point is songs you probably should be ashamed of liking.

Come on, I'm sure you have a huge selection of Acid Jazz stashed away somewhere.

Does this mean I need to get MP3 encoding software?

Scabrous Birdseed
25-07-2008, 19:08:43
Nah, just rip the track off the CD and send me the whole file. I can encode it for you.

Scabrous Birdseed
25-07-2008, 19:09:20
Oh and once the e-mail issue has been fixed I'll start a thread.

I should probably get some MP3 encoding software and join the modern age. Any recommendations?

Apple stuff? Seeing as I don't own an iPod, is that worth getting?

27-07-2008, 08:38:57
You should have Windows Media Player on your machine already. It's just as invasive as iTunes, but if you don't need iTunes I wouldn't install it

(I am ironically installing iTunes as I post this...)

Yes, I do- I didn't know it could convert tracks to MP3.

You need a plugin for WMP9, WMP10 does it natively (http://tinyurl.com/98kzc). [microsoft faq (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/faq/rip.mspx)]

I agree with Funko on iTunes. Avoid if possible.

I appear to have WMP11, so I'll go work it out.

What do you usually rip CD tracks with?

Lazarus and the Gimp
27-07-2008, 20:56:21
Some program that came with my old PC. I've never claimed to be terribly interested in all this computer stuff.

28-07-2008, 08:08:51
Stick a CD in the drive. Load WMP, go to the "Rip" tab. Select the song you want to rip, click start rip.

28-07-2008, 08:11:25
Oh and it turns out I didn't need iTunes after all, but it did lead me to what I did need. (which was something to play a couple of episodes of the wire that were div x files... someone lost one of the DVDs in the boxed set I was borrowing and replaced it with a CD of avi rips...)

what a story what a story

Doesn't WMP rip low-bitrate WMA files by default? *worried*

I use a fairly old-but-straightforward software called CDEx:


I think it's fairly easy to use, and less obtuse than WMP (which will put your ripped files god knows where, and is tricky to set up).

Set up CDEx one time and you don't have to worry about it again.

Options -> Settings

"File Names" tab:
Set "Recorded Tracks" to whatever directory you want the files to end up in.

"Encoder" tab:
Encoder: Lame MP3 Encoder
Version: MPEG I
Bitrate Min: 192 kbps, Max: 320 kbps
Mode: j-stereo
Quality: Very High Quality
VBR Method: VBR Default
VBR Quality: VBR 0

"Remote CDDB" tab:
Put your email address (or just any emial address, I think) in the field provided.

That's it, you never have to touch it again except the "Exctract CD Tracks To Compressed Audio Files" button.

28-07-2008, 11:26:28
You can set WMP to rip to any mp3 format, it remembers your defaults.

Since v10, WMP has actually been very decent.

in the menu (right click on black bar) go to:

Tools, options, rip music

Format - mp3
Quality - move slider up as high as you want.

At home I tend to use CDEx or WMP depending on how the mood takes me.
