Vocal remover, lyrics as input and you can have Sam sing your favourite tune...
I'm already working on your last suggestion Canar, but I'm not sure what the advantage of using it as an input plugin is. Can you expand on that?upNorth - I'm not sure if it's possible to delay playback of the audio until the speech has finished because I currently use the callback from foobar that a song has just started as a trigger to speak. Any suggestions?Paulski
I used some linux speech tools when porting a friends mp3 jukebox over to supporting mpc and the like... I had it so you could print out a list of albums with their numbers.. and then using a normal infra red remote you could just press the digits for the album you wanted123 enterand it would queue or play the album...
That really is a great idea as i use a remote control, to control foobar myself (Hauppague wintv pci controller and a little program called IR Remote).
There are futher possibilities for speech that may enhance foobar and even eliminate the need for a display:Speaking aloud the list of albums (from the database) and using speech input to add to the playlist and play (general speech control of the app is also an option).What do you think?
if (text_to_speech::present()) text_to_speech::speak("Foobar rules!");
but roughly this would be niceField 1: %TITLE%Field 2: byField 3: %ARTIST%Field 4: off ofField 5: %ALBUM%Field 6: inField 7: %YEAR%I guess really you would want a page that let you have as many fields as you want without cluttering it up!?! above fields 2, 4, and 6 are plain text to allow you to sculpt it however you want.. I also noticed that this plugin when i last used it didn't get output to the streaming output created by foobar... not a biggie but it'd be nice to have this as an option if its possible.. streaming music is obviously a really good example for where this system is nice... ok they get the information but at the moment that information is restricted (oddcast only broadcasts artist - title) .. as such this kind of a mechanism especially if you are able to put it in before a track started say?! would be a great way to infrom people of what they are listening to..
