As I’ve said before I came from the now dead Trekstor Vibez. They were going to bring out a Flash version and recently announced they aren’t going to now. Since my hard disk based Vibez died I did a ton of research and settled on the Fuze. Which I adore.
Prior to the Vibez I had a Rio Karma. The Vibez was based on the same firmware as the Karma.
The one thing I REALLY miss is the RIO DJ or just DJ option. This was SUCH the greatest way to tool up music. I wonder if it’s even possible to do something similar on the Fuze?
Examples of how it works:
PLAY > MUSIC > DJ > “ENTERTAIN ME”
This would generate a playlist from the most listened to tracks on your player for a certain amount of time.
In other words you could choose: play the most listened to tracks from the past day/week/2 weeks/month/2 months/year.
PLAY > MUSIC > DJ > “PLAY ALL”
This would generate a playlist and let you choose: Album, Artist, Genre, Year.
PLAY > MUSIC > DJ > “NEW MUSIC”
Generates a playlist and lets you choose: Music loaded in the last day/week/2 weeks/month/etc…
PLAY > MUSIC > “MEMORY LANE”
Generates a playlist and picks tracks that have NOT been played in the past: day/week/2weeks/etc
PLAY > DJ > DEJA VU
Plays music that you listened to in the last day/week/etc…
PLAY > DJ > RANDOM
Lets you choose 15minutes/30/60/2 hours worth of random music.
PLAY > DJ > TOP TRACKS
Let’s you choose the top all-time 10/20/50 most played tracks.
Obviously this means everything is tracked on the player. When a song was loaded, when it was played (a track would have to play for 10 seconds before it would be marked as played), how many times it has been played. I would load up 2 hours of random, skip song I didn’t want to heear, later play SONGS I PLAYED LAST WEEK, every now and then TOP 20 TRACKS, after 6 months or so PLAY SONGS I HAVEN’T LISTENED TO to see if what I should probably delete.
With 16GB of music on my Fuze… this would really help.
I realize it may not even be possible and if it is it may take far to long to implement to even be worth it looking into it.
I also realize this is NOT a Vibez and I should not be trying to make it one. I’m not. Just had to mention (imo) one of the best features ever on any DAP.
The Fuze is a **bleep** fine player and I am not trying to slight it in the least.
