At this point my wish is probably in super pie-in-the-sky territory, but here goes...

I've been messing with the MusicMagic Mix function of Winamp 5.1 for a while now. It's great fun and very useful. It creates a playlist of songs from a selected track. Pick a song and press the MusicMagic Mix button and boom! It generates a playlist of similar sounding tunes. I remember a similar program that was being talked about here, but I forgot the name.

In the morning, I usually get into the car with a particular song in my head. it would be really cool to be able to pick that song on the Empeg and then MMM a full playlist from it. I've done this several times at work and I usually am very pleased (and surprised) with the results.

From my meager research it appears there must be some form of license fee, and you need to scan your collection to set up the database (for my ~15,000 tracks the db appears to be around 11MB. I hope, if the gods are smiling on the Mark III, or v4.0, they might consider such a feature...

I wish I was rich and could program...

Curses, I've been intending to create something like that for years now. I really really should quit my job and just do it. Thanks for the link.

Y'know, you really haven't been intending to do any of these things you say you've always been intending to do, have you?

Arg... every day I think about this.

"Hey! That's a great song... I'd like to create a whole playlist like that right now... oh wait..."

Oh well... I'm curious. I know this has zero possibility to happen, but technically, is it even possible?

As soon as I win "the tax for people who can't do math" I will give you a call FireFox31.

Is it possible on a PC? Must be. All attribute tags could be stored in a database which could easily be queried for multiple criteria.

Possible on the empeg? It may be, if you could expand the player's database to include attribute tags and allow multiple criteria searching. I get the feeling we don't have access to that part of the software.

It's technically possible. Ask TonyC nicely if he'll expanded on the weighted shuffles in emphatic?
