Subject: Re: Re: Recording filenames
From: Bryce Benton (
Date: 2003-01-11

what if the filename automatically (or with a selection for on/off) included
the input used.

for example:

but i would guess that most people would only use one primary recording
input, once the best configuration is determined.

another idea is to have a text file (typed on a keyboard and then
transferred via USB) that could be used to generate a list of choices. so if
you knew you would test out mic1, mic_stereo, superfancy_mic, you could type
these in beforehand and then load them as choices.

the interface would display the choices loaded from the selected text file
and also a choice for entering a new name using the jukebox (and possibly
storing that name in the same text file or in a new text file). then you
would save yourself from retyping the filename numerous times.

another possibility is to create a new name based on an existing filename or
to modify an existing name (maybe you misspelled it with the keyboard and
just need to change one or two letters).

just some ideas...
