IPOD update

Well, the IPOD is working, if not flawlessly. It seems to get it to work I need to plug the iPod into the USB card and then plug the combo into my laptop. Other combinations seem to work unreliably. But I’ve managed to put about 2 days worth of audio on it, and have been enjoying:

  1. Al Franken’s Lying Liars, only $4 from iTunes
  2. Testimony before the 9/11 committee, downloaded from audible.com
  3. a nice thunderstorm, created with boodler and compressed using faac.
  4. my Fodor’s Learn French CDs…
  5. The A-Z of Opera
  6. A bunch of old time radio shows from the Webranger Old Time Radio DVD

Cool device.

    What’s “boodler”? Anyhow, I found this page through Google, because I
    was searching for “ipod faac”… 😉

  2. Boodler is a cool python program written by Andy Plotkin. It is basically a programming system that allows you to take short snippets of sound and layer them together to create long sound effects.

    One of the examples he has an hour long thunderstorm. It’s really quite restful. Using similar techniques, I took some wave and seagull sounds, and made a day at the beach.
