Suggested Listening

Hey GG -

This is a little off the technical side however my preference in the car lately has been the late mid-late 80s. I could get technical and mention all the editing he has done on each individual show but you can found that info on the shows information before its downloaded. Many good sources out there. Ive found the Miller "Gems" as the last person mentioned to be the sweetest. Of course there are many other great years and sources but Mr Miller down south of me has the crispest sounding stuff. Good luck!!

transfering Cassettes...

If they are not masters or real ow gen SBD stuff that does not Circulate do not bother.. As others have said here there are so many places to get the music weather it is Archive.org, WWW.shnflac.net or www.Jeromesplace.net.. It all circulates and unless your One of teh early traders with reall low gen stuff it si all there like 5 gens earlier than what you have...

there are new transferring projects like GMB , GEMS, CM ect that are re transferring and editing all the great early gen and master recordings.. Do yourself a favor and explore the LMA (archive.org or one of the torrent sites I described .. You will not look back!

IMINCHARGE!

Depends on what era you like. With the help of some others, I started 2 great vines (IMO), the cream filling # 1 (11/14/73-11/21/73) and the Fall '77 part 1 (9/29, 10/9, 10/11, 10/14, 10/29, 11/1) vines. You can't go wrong with the May '77 East Coast vine. There are also a couple of great Europe '72 vines. I believe at least 8 shows from that great tour are available in the vineyard.

FYI, all you have to do to join the vineyard is have the capability to rip and burn cds, as well as a little cash to pay for postage, handling and cds. The way we do it is you copy the last list on the vine, paste it into a new post and sign up on the list. Then you PM the person ahead of you and give them your address, wait patiently, receive the discs, rip and burn them, and send the ORIGINAL discs to the next person. It is important to send the originals because there is some loss when you burn cds. This way, the last person on the vine gets the same sound quality as the first person. Also, you should try to use I-Tunes or some other burning software that allows you to avoid having gaps btwn songs. Windows Media Player leaves a gap btwn songs, so that Scarlet > Fire doesn't flow from one track to the next, but instead has a few second soundless gap.

good luck.

bummer...

Sorry Andre that the program I came across doesn't make magic. I have a son home sick from daycare today so I'm hanging around the house. When things calm down here I will look for other programs . I'm curious too.

Still Looking For

Shn player software for Mac !

And I will send a DVD to the person, who will introduce me to a software that really does play shn files on a Mac. So please fire away.

When I will be able to listen to shn files, I will send a PM to the first, who told me about it, and talk/write about the promised DVDs content.

looking for you...

Eric,

For trying to help a fellow mac user, you are awarded the
Search better than andré Engine Drivers Award.

No matter iSoundFile does not handle shn files.

thanks,

andré

looking for you...

OK well for a fellow mac user, I went onto Version Tracker and found a program called iSoundFile 0.5 It says it will do Flac files but I cant tell about Shn(s). The reviews are mixed. Let me know if you have any luck.

Shn player software for Mac

Is there a software that can play shn files on an iMac ?

Internet search said PureMusic Audio Player is the tool.
But none of all the sites,who offered Free Download, had it.
Felt like the MacPolice has taken action ...

So the question is, whether there is a software to do this job or not.
And all answers are appreciated.

Thanks,

andré
