Not so long ago half your record collection would sit in the attic, gathering dust. In 2007 it’s more likely to be languishing in the dark recesses of your iPod or laptop, unplayed, unloved. We always think we’ll get round to making great playlists and rediscover hidden gems, but let’s face it, who’s got the time?
The Filter is a plug-in for Apple’s iTunes. To make great playlists you’re going to need a minimum of two hundred songs.
Simply download the free software, highlight one or two songs that typify what you want to listen to from your iTunes library and The Filter will generate a playlist for you that suits your current mood.
The iPod Refresher function creates playlists for specific activities, such as getting to work or going to the gym. And what’s more it can refresh those playlists each and every time you sync your iPod (or compatible player) to keep them from getting boring.
You can apply to become an Alpha tester for the Macintosh version of ‘The Filter 2.0’ (already full, but you’ll be on the list to be notified when the beta version is available) here.
