If you’re like me you’ll enjoy listening to music when doing some design work. You’ll also enjoy finding out about new artists that match your music tastes. There’s a nice FREE online music player that lets you enter your favourite musicians or bands and it’ll create custom stations around their music genre.
For instance, in my screenshot above I added four different artists (shown in the little grey tabs on the left of the box). The player saves this info to my account so that anytime I visit the Pandora website it remembers my choices. The music player automatically generates similar styled tracks on an ongoing basis, and no need to login over and over as my info is stored on my computer.
It takes a while to tailor your stations to your exact tastes, and if you don’t like the choice of track Pandora comes up with then give it the ‘thumbs down’ and it will skip to the next track, while continuing to tailor your online station. It won’t be long before it offers up some excellent new additions to your music collection. It’s a pretty cool idea, and one I’ve been using for about a year now.
Have you used it before? What do you think of the idea?
