what is a "go list" for

I am new to mp3 and I feel like I've just discovered indoor plumbing! I have a lot of what are probably stupid questions, this is only the beginning.

 

What happens when you add a song to a "go list" and why would I want to do that. What is the differance between that and a play list?

This is a playlist that you can edit as you go. So if you come across a song you like and you want to hear more often you can put them on there so you can hear it.
What I do with it is, if I add a new song to my player that I would like to hear as I go to bed I add it to my go list which is the playlist I use at bed time.
 In a perfectly Ideal world it would be a playlist that you could edit on the go.

In a perfect world you could make multiple playlists on the Fuze itself. Smiley Wink

I use my Go List for positive, uplifting music.  Then if I'm feeling down or sometimes on my way to work I listen to it.

 

If you wanted to you could create a go list, then create a playlist (on Media Monkey or you choice) and then create another go list of something else.

I tried out this "go list", I had a couple songs in there, but today it was empty! Does syncing make it go away?

I believe it resets whenever you plug into the computer and dis-connect, but since I don't use it I could be mistaken.

Re: what is a "go list" for

I just checked it today and it was still there. I have hooked it up to the computer but I haven't resynced yet.

 

 

I still don't quite understand the differance. Why have playlists that you can't edit on the fly? It seems like they would all fuction the same as the golist.

My #1 complaint of the Fuze. Sansa would have to implement much more then just a playlist to make that work. You would have options like "INSERT, APPEND, ENQUE, REORDER".

I just used the GoList on my Clip+ the other day for the first time. I took about 2 minutes, to cobble together a 30-song list to play while on a short road trip. Why make this list at all? To have songs that were agreeable to the driver , in addition to me, without having to skip tracks, or navigate the player in a moving car. It worked perfectly....I shuffled through the list, and never felt any need to add to the list, or make another one, etc, etc.

 

I still fail to see the need to do these things, I have to say.Smiley Wink

Re: what is a "go list" for

I've used the GoList extensively since I first had my fuze in 2008.

Partially this is due to the hassle of creating and maintaining playlists.  Always seems to be some problem...and I usually want to change up my playlist frequently so I'd rather do it on the device rather than via a PC.

 

Originally there were 100 tunes max for GoList and this was increased to 200 in one of the updates.  Nice!

I jsut find it effortless.  Add or Delete from GoList whenever you want.  Pretty simple and effiective.

 

I wish there was a second GoList so you could keep an ongoing one and then have a special event GoList (for a road-trip or a party for instance).
