    Need help in picking a new mp3 player

    I have a 3 year old Samsung S9 that has a battery that barely lasts a full day. I love this phone as it has a 256gb micro card that holds all of my PURCHASED music - 24,000 tracks. Problem is all new phones no longer have a slot for an SD micro card, so I won't be able to have my music with...

    DJ booth at Camden Yards

    Took a tour of Camden Yards 2 weeks ago - the home of the Baltimore Orioles. One of the areas we visited was the broadcast booth area. Here's the setup the DJ has....looked a bit underwhelming.....

    Virtual DJ Lite questions

    A few questions on this version that is packaged with a few mixers and smaller controllers... What functions do you NOT get with the Lite compared to the full version? I have no need for video. Are you able to make (and does it show) a request list? Does it allow you to drop tracks into an...

    Aaaahhhh! Need software help!

    I was volunteered by my daughter to do a friend's reception this Saturday night. Problem is I can't run the full version of the RockIt software as my user and password no longer work! I need to buy an inexpensive and EASY software - nothing fancy no bells and whistles. Please offer me some...

    From Hot Hot Hot to Free Free Free

    Anyone heard Pitbull's new single "Free Free Free"? The chorus is a blatant copy of "Hot Hot Hot". And another part of it sounds very familiar....just can't put my finger on what song it mimmicks...

    Google Play is slowly forcing streaming

    I've said before that I'm not a fan of streaming music. My OCD brain prefers to actually buy and own the music. But over the past 2 years, Google has (at least for me) made it harder and harder to buy music. First, they took away the ability to buy credit (add $$ to your account) on line and...

    Spotify and MY music collection

    I've been trying out Spotify and I have one important question and I'm getting conflicting answers to this. Does Spotify allow me to somehow include MY purchased music in the "my library"? If not, that means all the music I've collected over the years will stay separate from Spotify. And if...

    Need a simple mp3 editing software

    I'm looking for a SIMPLE program that will edit mp3's. All I need is to be able to take a say 40 minute mp3 (sermons) and grab just one 5 or 6 minute clip. Suggestions? I've tried "Audacity" and "Ocean Audio" but even they are too complicated. Maybe I'm too simple?

    Need help: laptop won't connect to Bluetooth

    As a favor, I'm providing music for a 50th anniversary to good friends. That's all they want. When I went to the venue to test their Bluetooth system, my phone connected fine and the music played well on their sound system. My phone asked for the password. But my laptop did not and could not...

    Kenny G rocked!

    Wifey and I saw the movie "Bad Mom's Christmas" - her time to pick. It had one part where Kenny G was performing a private show at someone's home and the owner needed to toss everyone out. She approached Kenny G and said "Get your fuzzy hair and flute and get the h+ll out!". To which he...

    Sound board control through an I Pad?

    This may be a common occurence, but it's new to me. Wifey and I went to a fundraiser concert at a local VFW hall for their new roof. The artist was new country singer Sam Grow. I noticed the sound guy sitting at the table next to me and he was doing all the sound work wirelessly from an I...

    Best on-line back up site or service for your music?

    I spent a few vacation days over the past 2 months (I have a LOT of days....don't use 'em, you lose 'em) cleaning up my mp3 tags. I made the mistake of not putting "various artists" in the album artist field on compilations and put the "ft. someone" in the artist field instead of the title...

    Weddings The lost art of good mc'ing?

    I've been to two out of town family weddings over the past two weekends. And yes, it's tough for me to go and hear sub-par DJ's - actually frustrating. At both, the mc work was really lacking - no personalisation, no real feeling, no umph - just bland. And you had to listen very closely lest...

    Nowadays, it's NOT about the music

    I had dinner with a long time friend and DJ last week. We mainly discussed the current state of the DJ wedding industry and we both came to the same conclusion. With the ease of anyone to obtain music for a low cost (i.e. Spotify), what many clients are looking for is NOT the music you can...
