It's always interesting to see a glimpse into somebody else's music library. Even though I haven't commented until now, I always check these out and scroll through.

Just as way of explanation, which I just realized I have never supplied, these images are screenshots from my music server interface from the "New Music" category.

New Music contains 400 images of the most recently added music to the server. 

I am slowly ripping my collection of CDs for reasons stated in several other threads but mainly this one:

http://www.hypnos.com/smf/index.php?topic=3601.0

I say slowly ripping but actually I have accelerated the process lately and I have added over 10,000 tracks in the last 2 months.

I am constantly listening to music when I am home or even at the gym.  My last.fm link in my signature has my "Now Playing" info.

Mike:  What do you mean by "tweaker"?

APK: What do you mean by "freaky"?

I do agree with whatever descriptions anyone has of my music collection, good or bad.  I consider it a library with good and bad selections ;)

I think APK and Mike are both "freaky tweakers"!!!!!

I get a kick out of looking at your new music screen shots, Jim - always fun!

I mean he seems like a wacko, always wearing those glasses. But I mean it in a nice way... I always get a kick out of his appearance on both solo and Suicide albums.

I suspect a problem here.  I may not be as consistent as I should be in imprinting genre on these files.  Also, when I rip a disc I may just leave the default genre pulled from one of four databases. This genre may actually be multiple genres such as "IDM Ambient Electronic" or a variation such as "IDM Ambient Electronica".  Also if I purchased files from Boomkat, their genres are distinctly unusual such as "Home listening" or "Grime" or "Broken Beats" to name just a few.

I just attempted to look at the list of genres and the server software stalled/choked.  LOL.
Title: Re: FILE://Access/Rip/Play
Post by: zzzone.net on May 27, 2011, 10:31:03 AM
A piece of software that runs on my iPad is able to parse all the genres.

Here's a list of pseudo-genres that are populating the part of the "S" genre database:

skweee
Soul, Funk, House
Soul, Hose, Funk
Soundsc
Soundtrack/Filmmusik
Space breaks/electro
Space italo
Sports themes
Synthie-Pop
Synthpop
Synthwave/Electro

...and this is just a few of the "S" listings.  Admittedly it's a bit of a mess :)

I seldom look for music by genre but if I did I would be sure to go for "skweee" everytime ;)

[Skweee is a musical style, with origin in Sweden and Finland. Skweee combines simple synth leads and basslines with funk, r'n'b or soul-like rhythms, overall rendering a stripped-down funky sound. The tracks are mostly entirely instrumental, though there are exceptions. The name Skweee was coined by Daniel Savio, one of the originators of the emerging sound. The name refers to the use of vintage synthesizers in the production process, where the aim is to "squeeze out" the most interesting sounds possible. [1][2][3]]

So ambient skweee is a distinct possibility.....

Notice the genre number reduction.  Squeezebox released a completely new server which apparently recognizes less genres in my database.  Additionally the total play time is reduced which makes sense if you follow the numbers in my post above.

I think the file and album numbers are the most accurate.

I deleted a few thousand pop/dance tracks.  I also stripped out the CD art from all the tracks to allow the server software to scan the files more easily.  In doing so, I lost the original files dates.  Therefore some of the above CDs may not be "new" to the server...just with new dates.

7 yrs ago, I lost ~15,000 vinyl records in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina.  Now I have nearly that number of albums on three hard drives.  I'm amazed at how far we have come.

My next post should take me well over 150,000 files and  perhaps over 15,000 albums.

In case anyone is interested, this is the player interface visible on any computer in the house:

Jim,

Someday, an archeologist is going to be digging the earth that has covered your home... and find this server...  hook up a future version of a mac to it (because they connect to everything in the movies of course... )  - and the archeologist will have her mind blown by the sheer breadth and depth of your music collection.   I believe she will "Skweee" in delight.

Not meaning to cause a debate again, but I wonder if they'll find my hard drives intact or my CDs or neither.

And if either one is intact, will they be able to read the file format?

I'm a little late with this post as I reloaded Windows XP Pro and all my software on my computer.  The annual ritual was as painful as usual.  My hair is a little grayer.

I had to modify the Logitech Media Server to use a 4 GB RAM disk on the server laptop as the database for the server was getting too slow due to large size.

The laptop also serves up my 24/7 commercial-free ambient stream (http://myradiostream.com/24/6610/listen.m3u).

My last live ambient stream ended abruptly 8 years ago when Katrina hit New Orleans and cut the power to about the only thing I left going, the ambient server.  Here's a list of the last 100 songs (http://personalpages.bellsouth.net/k/o/komputer/playlist.htm) played on that stream, left eerily hanging in cyber space.

The hardware/players that I use for my music server work very well.  I have instant access to all my music in several rooms of the house; I can sync playback throughout the house if desired.  Unfortunately Logitech has dropped the Squeezebox line of players.

The good news is that the Squeezebox community is made of hardware and software developers who now are making open source hardware for the now open source server software.  This product will compete with Sonos but will offer two big advantages: lower cost and the playback of hi-res files.  Additionally Sonos uses internal memory for its database; that usually fills up at approximately 65,000 files - there are no plans for that to increase that anyone can discern.  The disadvantage will be that the new players may not look as good and they will be initially headless without a display, using iOS/Android/computer apps to control the players.  They may also require an external DAC which could be an advantage.  For those of you contemplating trying out a home music server, this might be an inexpensive route to go.

I'll keep you posted.

I had to expand/modify the music server due to running out of storage space on four 2 TB external USB hard drives.  I got an 8 hard drive USB 3.0 enclosure and installed 4 hard drives with 10 TB of storage, leaving 4 hard drive spaces unused for future expansion.  The "upgrade" is a true upgrade in that I got to unplug all those dang external hard drives, each with their own power brick and USB cord.  Now there is one power cord for the enclosure and one USB 3.0 cable.

Logitech has stopped making players for the Squeezebox system so a group of tech-savvy users have released the plans for the piCoplayer made from Raspberry Pi boards, a flash storage card, a wi-fi dongle, USB DAC, case (acrylic, wood, lucite) and amplified speakers or hi-fi.  I just put together 3 players:

You can pay top dollar for Sonos and get a system with a lot less flexibility than the Squeezebox open-source system.  Notably the Sonos file system is limited to 65,000 music files.

Or you can put together or buy some piCoplayers for the cost of a few parts and your labor.

If anyone is interested in this system or players, let me know at ambientmusic(at)gmail.com

Here's a couple more players (that's real wood inlay in the top one):

All you need for a full Squeezebox music server setup:

1.  Server computer with the media server software cataloging and serving up your music files (Mac, Win, Linux)
2.  One or more players consisting of the following: player unit, micro USB power brick, amplified speakers or connection to your hi-fi system.  Also any computer can be a player with the Squeezeplay app installed
3.  A DAC which can be obtained from many difference sources ranging in price from $30 to $10,000 depending on how good you think your ears are and whether or not you believe in ionized selenium covered audio cables.
4.  Cell phone or tablet with the iOS or Android Squeezebox app of your choice to control your system.  Also any computer in your house can control all the players.

Or, of course, you can pay 5-10 times more for a Sonos system that has less flexibility.

I'm selling my copy of Purl's Stillpoint CD, sold out on Silent Season, for $20 if anyone's interested.  It's listed on Discogs.  Thanks.
