OpenMetronome is a Windows metronome program that started out as a project called “Weird Metronome” by David Johnston, was renamed to “OpenMetronome” and further enhanced by Mark Billington, and now I’ve added a few more minor modifications. If you’re ready to try OpenMetronome without reading through this whole article, you can scroll down to the end to find the installation instructions.
NewAlbumFinder is a python application that can scan the MP3 music files on your computer to gather a list of the artists and albums you currently have in your collection. It then searches the iTunes database to get a list of available albums by each of those artists, and builds a list of those albums you don’t currently have. This list is saved in an html file on your desktop that you can open in your web browser, and includes the album art for each album. You can click on the album to be taken to the iTunes store for more information about the album.
