This month in digital music libraries - September 2022
September 30, 2022 in digital music by Dan Gravell
This month there’s a couple of new human-powered musical curation sites, more in the mainstream press about self hosting music software and hardware, and more QNAP attacks.
Digs is a new service that stores your recommendations about musical releases. It’s album based and human-powered, no recommendation engines ‘recommending’ dodgy instrumental covers here!
@digsfm is like @lastfm but concentrates more on curation than listens. https://t.co/MDov6WLTLz Think @goodreads but for music. pic.twitter.com/NjcGHhsHt8— bliss (@bliss_music) August 31, 2022
Meanwhile, muso.fm is a human-curated list of online radio stations.

Turns out, laptops have taste
As a programmer, it gives me cold sweats as to how this problem was diagnosed.

On guard, shut down those ports! There are more ransomware attacks ongoing against QNAP NAS devices.

Audacity, but online
Check out this impressive Web based app - it’s basically Audacity (including a rather uncanny replication of the look-and-feel) but on the Web (it seems to have changed its name to Wavacity since I tweeted):
Wavvy is like #Audacity but online https://t.co/QFwkFvlN56 thanks @ahilss ! pic.twitter.com/BiQLnzjrMO— bliss (@bliss_music) September 17, 2022
