 recently rated?

Questions
redline
 
What would be the best way to create a smartplaylist of recently rated songs?

Example: I have a song that has been on my ipod for over 3 months but I've never heard it. I JUST rated it 5 stars today and want it to show up in a smart playlist of songs I just rated 4 or 5 stars so I can get to them quickly.

I tried this with the 'date modified' feature but that doesn't seem to work for ratings.

Thanks for your help!

 Synching question

Questions
redline
 
This is a great site. Lots of great info being swapped. Please bear with me as this may seem a bit elementary, compared to the pros here. I have about 20 GB of music ripped to my harddrive. I usually manually synch my iPod because I do not want all of my music to get transferred, but now have started to get more interested in the ideas of smart playlists to filter my music. Of course that will require some fun time rating and catagorizing what I have.

Here goes: Is it more effecient to auto sync everything? Seems that the iPod and iTunes can only communicate fully (keep track of playcounts, ratings)if this is done. Then keep track of things through the update of playlists? I have noticed that if I try to create playlists and do not synch the correct way, all of the other music I might have had on the iPod is removed. That gets very tiresome, but I know it is novice operator error.

Thanks.

 BPM Counter?

Questions
redline
 
One thing (among many others) I would like to see in a future version of iTunes would be a built in BPM counter. It could be as simple as a small little field built into the skin that displayed the mean BPM as the user tapped away at the keyboard. It could either be hard assigned to an ASCII key or it could be user-assignable. Either way it would be better than my current method of always having to run a freeware app in the background when running iTunes. They have included the field in the tag, it would make sense to add an easy way to determine the BPM. Anyone know of an official way to contact Apple with suggestions?

Thanks.

 limiting artists?

Questions
redline
 
Is there a way to place a limit so that a particular artist or album is played once? I want to make a playlist that takes only one random track off of each album.

 Weighted playlist?

Questions
redline
 
Before I bought my Ipod, I read a false story claiming that, in iPod, a "super playlist" could be created -- meaning that however one would score each song in the "My Rating" area would result in a weighted playlist, I.E. a five star song would get five times the "airplay" as a one star song, etc.

Someone here made a great suggestion that this can be created through playlists. In other words, first create a blank playlist. Then take the whole library, sort it by "My Rating", then drag and drop the songs to the new list multiple times, depending upon rating. For example, the five star songs, once grouped, would be highlighted, then drag and dropped five times to the new list, the four star songs would be dropped four times, etc.

End result, not too much work, and 3500 songs have become a 9000 song playlist - completely weighted by rating. Here's the problem: this is simply a regular playlist - and I want it to be a smart playlist, so that songs in the list are not repeated before others get a chance to be played. I want all the songs to have a chance to play once before going through the list again - for example, a five star song is listed five times in this playlist, and each of the five songs could be played more than once even in a random rotation, right? If so, some of the one star songs may take forever to come around, as they are listed only once.

I know that Ipod would play every song on a playlist once before cycling through a second time... but I'd have to let it play completely through.... I thought this forum would be the place to ask. Ideas? Solutions?
