So much hipper than a mix tape: Click to listen to my iTunes signature. (NB: It’s large — 5.8MB.)
An iTunes signature is a smear of bits of tracks from one’s iTunes library. You make it with this application.
[The iTunes Signature Maker] selects a small number of your “favorite” tracks based on some simple selection criteria, such as the number of times you have played them or the rating you have assigned them. Then it analyzes the audio content of these files, combining a small bit of each of them to create the signature.
Notably, the Signature Maker skips tracks purchased from the iTunes store, so it can’t create a true sample of my library. But for what it can do, it’s neat.
I’m not super enthused with the way this signature of mine starts. (Sheryl Crow? So embarrassing.) But I like the end very much. There are 50 songs represented in all. How many can you identify?
