Mic in Track
A “mic in track” is a recording made on a PC using MusicMatch Jukebox, a music utility packaged with many new PC’s that allows the user to record from the microphone input of the PC’s sound card and save the recording in mp3 format. The default filename is “mic in track” followed by a number.
If that user also happens to be running a file-sharing program (WinMX, Audiognome, Kazaa, etc.), and shares the directory in which the mic in track is stored, then these personal recordings can be easily downloaded from the user’s computer. The vast majority of them are either silent or uninteresting, but many are like Christmas presents giftwrapped in nondescript serial numbers. They represent unique examples of audio vÈritÈ.
The first song I downloaded and played was Bunnyrabbits, Satan, Cheese and Milk. And I really, really liked it!
In fact, I liked so many of the files I found on here… I’m updating my audioplayer (on the right) tonight with three new tracks. All of them from Stark Effect.
