Spectrum analyser in Music does nothing

Is there a reason for a spectrum analyzer on the player that clearly does absolutely nothing related to the music playing? I've noticed this on a few other flash mp3 players, including Myspace's. Is there a way to make it not there?

More functionality from project, music listings

In the projects RSS feed, the URL points to the submitted project, not the projects page, so in order to vote or comment I have to go to projects and find the link manually. Also, it would be nice if on the music page, you could favorite and playlist songs right from the main listing, rather then just on the individual song pages, so that if you're listening to a bunch of songs, in order, you could favorite without needing to change pages.

What happened to the latest MeFi CD Swap?

Does anyone have info about the latest, greatest MeFi swap? There hasn't been any new updates on their site, and the "sending of the swapsets" date has come and gone. What gives?

Projects visited link color is unreadable for me

Couple of buggies and questions:

Projects visited link color is unreadable for me. Oddly, it's a different unreadable color at work (that picture) vs at home (purple). Something goofy on my end?

A couple of music questions inside, too....

Please, klangklangston, tell us about the music

I was hoping klangklangston would, if he has the time, post one or two lines about each of the numerous albums he cites, either in the main thread or his own blog. I was concerned that a request for a self-link or major derail might be frowned upon in the blue, hence this MeTa.

Please add projects and songs by our contacts!

On the usercontacts page, we can see MetaFilter posts, MetaTalk posts, Ask MetaFilter questions, favorites, and playlists from our contacts. I think we should also see projects and songs posted by our contacts there, too. [A little more inside]

Music search searches AskMe

Would it be possible to have the search bar in Music actually search Music.? It seems to query for Ask., at the moment. I'm looking for a printer song, and am so, so lazy.

Can we post covers on Music?

I play with a jazz band. In jazz, covers are pretty typical, and part of the tradition. My question is -- if I have a great recording of the band I'm in doing Coltrane's "India", is that acceptable to post to MeFi Music?

MefiMusic play-list pony

What it be possible for MeFi Music to auto-generate its own play-lists? It'd be really nice to be able to listen to (i) the tracks uploaded on a given day or (ii) every track that's been uploaded; without having to put the hard work in.

MeFiSwap music musicexchange

Reminder: There is just one week (give or take 12 hours) to sign up for the latest go of the MeFiSwap. The more the merrier, and right now participation numbers are kind of low, perhaps because the announcement scrolled off of MeTa in less than 36 hours, so if you were wondering if it's on, yes, it's on! Get in while you can.

Music Errors

When MeFi Music launched, I couldn't upload songs because I'd get this error message: "The MIME type of the uploaded file "application/oct-stream" was not accepted by the server." Others reported the same problem, and something was done which made my uploads work. However, now I'm getting this message again.

Beefy ID3 tags on MeFi Music songs, please!

Hello! I'm addicted to MetaFilter Music. One thing I'd like to encourage is well-fleshed ID3 data. Some of the songs I've downloaded simply say things like "Track 4" and then I can't figure out who the hell provided me with the wonderful ear-candy. Thanks to everyone for posting their tunes!

Discussion area in MeFi Music?

How about a discussion area in MeFi Music for members to set up collaborations? There's a lot of talent among the members, and I think it would be pretty cool to have the opportunity to collaborate with people across the world.

New Music Features

MeFi Music rev 2 feature blowout!!! Things added today:
- New Charts showing top favorites/playlists added in just the last three days (for new, awesome stuff you might have missed) and favorites/playlists from your contacts (what your friends like, you probably like too).
- playlists have podcast feeds, so you can just add it to iTunes and download the songs directly. When you add new songs to your playlist, iTunes can recheck and pull down those new ones as well.
- tag pages have podcast feeds and an embedded player. Want to hear everything tagged with hiphop in iTunes? Now you can.
- songs/comment history has been added to user pages, including a podcast feed for each and every user so if you want a copy of every song ever done by say, cortex, you can. Also added the embedded player to song history pages.
- more fixes coming later today, but I wanted to get the word out on the new features.

Can Music play in background tabs?

Quick question - when I'm playing something in me-fi music and switch windows, I lose the sound. This seems unusual - normally I can hear background sound in any open Firefox window. What am I doing wrong?

Music Guidelines

Question regarding the new Music section: Current guidelines run along the lines of "Music you have written and/or recorded". I have an album which I helped produce, but did not write/record. I was very much involved in the creation of this album and would like to post an example or two. [MI]

Pony: front page +fave links

Any chance we can get a +fave link on the front page for each item, especially on the green? (I'm thinking Digg-style, AJAX based would be very pretty, though potentially too Web 2.0 for the likes of some Mefites...)

Display problem on the tag cloud page for MeFi music

Is it just me or are the tags on this page so small as to be useless? They look like they're embedded in 100 small tags. Safari.

Download icon in Music vanishes

I noticed that the download icon in Mefi Music vanished when I logged out. Is this intentional (to cut down bandwidth demands)?

The dl links go to a straightforward .mp3 files, though, so I'm assuming that you could link to one of those (on your blog, say) and a non-member could download a song by clicking on the link. But would that be wrong?

MuFi Madness

I too have been taken with MuFi Madness™. I excitedly went to showcase my band's work, and- Oh! the horror! I was presented with an error on upload:
 The MIME type of the uploaded file "audio/x-mpeg" was not accepted by the server.
I use Audacity for my mp3 encoding, and am at my wits' end. Is there a way to rebrand a file's MIME type, or convert it? I'm quite eager to get in on the action, but need your help. Thanks, fellow citizens.

Announcing MeFi Music!

Now in alpha beta gamma whatever: MeFi Music. Built in 12 hours with help from pb, it's still got some rough edges and features to come, but for now you can upload a song you've written and recorded (this isn't for file sharing), stream it from the front page or from its own page (where you can also leave comments). You can add things to playlists and stream those too. And the RSS feed is a podcast you can drag into iTunes to suck down every mp3 that gets posted. I'm sure there are bugs and the color scheme was slapped together in five minutes, but expect to see things ironed out in the next couple weeks and I'll add it to the global nav for all sites when it feels complete. If you have any comments or questions, drop them here.

Can I Post an MP3?

I have an mp3 I'd like identified. I could crop it down to a few relevant seconds and post it to askme for help. How much, if any, of an ill-gotten mp3 can I host and post before the RIAA puts a hit out on me? The end goal truly is to purchase the music, I just need to know who made it. Also, if this is a just a really bad idea in general, feel free to let me know.

cortex records matthewchen is spamming

This is a litle weird, maybe, but so cool I wouldn't want anyone to miss it before it drops off the MeTa front page. adamrice said 'matthewchen is spamming', so I said 'there's a jangly, wistful guitarpop song somewhere in the phrase 'mathewchen is spamming'....' and cortex agreed and went ahead and recorded the song. How cool is that? I love this place sometimes.

Is there a sequel to Jingle Bell Rock?

The holidays are here (more or less) and as Christmas music fills the air, I find myself reminded of last year's MeFi masterpiece... Jingle Bell Rock, vocalized by Pink Stainless Tail. It became a favorite of mine, my to the chagrin of all my friends, and I was wondering - nay, hoping - will we be similarly blessed this year? Does anyone hope to follow in his mighty footsteps?

Subsites?

Any or all of the following additional sections would be most welcome: MetaFilm, MetaLit, MetaDesign, MetaMusic. They could be discussions on current trends/reviews in the chosen fields and/or critiques on Mefi members ventures in these areas. I know this is more like a herd of ponies and most likely not forseeable in the immediate future but I thought we could at least talk about it.

Music swaps that aren't MeFi related

Swap substitute: A friend of mine is really interested in the concept of the MeFi Swap, but of course he can't participate as he's not a member. I pointed him towards the MonkeyFilter Swap (which I admittedly have very little knowledge of), but are there any other websites out there that work on the same model?
