LeaseyBite 26, LeaseyAudio

This page contains an approximate transcript of the audio content for the LeaseyBite. For further step by step examples of how to use the Leasey features discussed, please consult the Leasey documentation.

Thank you for your interest in Leasey!

Time now for another audio-related Leasey feature and this is LeaseyAudio.

With LeaseyAudio, you can create playlists of your favourite items. A Playlist may consist of a book comprising a number of audio files, or perhaps some items from your music collection. You decide. When the playlist is complete, you can play it in your media player of choice, and as we've discussed before, that might be Winamp or Foobar 2000.

The LeaseyAudio menu contains several items and we will work through them in the order in which they appear.

Create or Change a Playlist.

Activating this option on the LeaseyAudio menu will bring into view an Edit Field. You will be asked for the name of the playlist. Whether this is a new playlist, or an existing one you wish to add to, you type its name and press Enter.
My Playlist is called "LeaseyBite".

You now need to browse to the folder containing the music. I've chosen to create a playlist of songs I have purchased from iTunes, so I am now in my iTunes music folder.

As described in our LeaseyBite relating to LeaseyTags, you need to assign LeaseyTags to each file you wish to add to the playlist by pressing Control+Shift+Space when focused upon it. To repeat, this can be from multiple folders, however you can always add to a playlist later.

When all the tags are in place, press Control +Shift+P and the playlist will be created very quickly. You will hear the word, “Complete”.

If you wish to add to the current playlist at this stage, you can go ahead and tag more files from different folders and then press Control+Shift+P once again. Leasey remembers which playlist you are creating and will do so unless you change a name by selecting option 1 from the LeaseyAudio menu, “Create or Change a Playlist”.

Activating the second option from the LeaseyAudio menu will let you “Work With Your Playlists”. Pressing Enter on this item will present you with a list of playlists you have previously saved. Press Enter on a playlist in order to work with it.

When within a playlist, four options are available:
Listen to the Playlist. Pressing Enter here will begin playback of all the songs in the playlist in sequential order, unless you choose to shuffle its contents.
Listen to a Song from the Playlist. This option will present you with a list of all files in the playlist. Press Enter on an item to listen to it.
Edit the Playlist. This option will bring the playlist into a file for easy text editing. If you wish to rearrange the order of items in the playlist, or delete from it, this is the option you need. Simply cut, copy, paste or delete items to suit your listening preference. Press Control+Enter to save.
Delete the Playlist. Pressing Enter here will remove the playlist from the computer.

Get your audio organised the way you want with Leasey. She'll play you music while you work.
