Back in the 90s (and today) I listen to some songs on repeat for hours. I used to use a WAV file editor to selectively cut and paste my favorite parts of techno songs together to extend them from 5 minutes to 25+ minutes. It was mostly simple because they’re repetitive but it did take skill to make them sound authentic. The major benefit of doing this by hand was that I could repeat the parts I loved most. Now The Echo Nest has an online too that’s almost but not quite as good at looping your favorite tunes. It does save huge amounts of time if you’ve ever done this by hand!
Mind you this thing only works in Chrome and Safari for now but it’s still a neat way to extend that song that’s always on repeat….Just upload your song and hit play. You can even adjust how it loops. Very cool!
Good work Echo Nest!
Now let me save the song to disk with a specific length…
