    In short, the .shn files downloaded from http://www.longliverock.org/downloads/ is step one. Actually, step one is reading their instructions located @: http://www.longliverock.org/downloads/extras-gettingstarted.php You will need to download a program called "Bit Torrent" in order to open that "shn"/"torrent" file at which time you open the file so that the actual download can begin. It should state or give you options of the format such as high quality "flac" or "wav" vs. lower quality "mp3" files etc. A typical high quality will be rather large (50 Megabytes) where the low quality "mp3" will be rather small (5 Megabytes). Assuming you are running the Windows, I recommend a program called "Winamp" and another called "DBPowerAmp" both of which are available at www.download.com. I'd recommend reading up on "lossy" vs. "lossless" formatting of media as this is a must for the treasure trove that is available all over the web; the most comprehensive of them all being: http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3Aetree%20AND%20crea… And now, thankfully, we have downloads available here. Hope this helps...

    well...
    the way I plan to do it is plug the d6 into the line in port on the Belkin TuneTalk on my iPod (just as I record interviews off the phone), record to the iPod, then move the result into iTunes, onto CD, etc. But depending on your equipment you might want to do something else.

    transferring cassettes to CDs
    I'm not that technically savvy and was wondering if someone could explain or give a link that explains the process and equipment required to transfer cassettes to CDs or MP3s. I have a bunch of bootlegs that pretty much just sit there out of fear that I will ruin them if I play them and would like to make them electronic.

    thankx.apparently they are
    thankx. apparently they are not flac, since I downloaded some flac program but it didn't work. what is the name of the .shn program? winamp is a decompress program? by the way, this is freaking Swahili for me, I never heard any of these words before. I haven't tried this again, I'm waiting for the next rainy day, but I appreciate your advice. thanks, peace.

    please help-reply
    please help http://www.longliverock.org/downloads/ OK, there are free Who downloads available here... which I downloaded into a utorrent file, but I can't get it to play... I am a total computer dummy, anybody know what program I can use to play them?? thankx! CC Joe, Depends on what format (.shn, .flac, ) the show was download in, the file extension will tell you. You will need to decompress the files to .wav in order to listen to them ( or get the.shn plugin for winamp) peace, Ron

Hey gang,Does anyone know of an easy to use program that can tag cover art to MP3 files? (for ex: some nice artwork was created for the "30 Days of the Dead" MP3's. How do I tag the artwork to the files?) Thanks! Peace, Chris

Hey folks, I have been looking to buy a new microphone or two to record live shows as well as my band rehearsals. I've look at the Rode NT 4 as a stereo mic and think it looks like a pretty decent mic. Just wondering what people are recording with, Mics, recorders, video recorders, etc.? Thanks Zel
