…Misu lets you transfer your iPod music for free?


Misu is a new iPod music transfer utility for Macs that makes it easy to transfer music between two iPods.

Simply select the source and the destination and let Misu go to work. It then compares the two iPods, figures out what’s missing, and syncs them together.

Currently it’s only in super-secret private beta mode, but courtesy of TUAW, the super-secret code that you’ll need to get a copy is 48372.

Plus, if you try out Misu during the beta phase, they’ll give you a free and licensed copy of the final version as a thank you. (This code is only good for today, but if you miss out, you can still get a free copy of Misu by becoming a fan of the Misu Facebook Page by the end of March.)

…You can turn any song into an iPhone ringtone?

iPhone Ringtone

Apple might make you pay a dollar per song that you want to use as a ringtone on your new iPhone, but there’s a way to create custom ringtones using only Apple software that costs just a few extra minutes of your time.

  1. Open GarageBand.
  2. iTunes Library

  3. Drag a song from your iTunes library into the GarageBand window to create a new track.
  4. Cycle Region

  5. Click the Cycle Region button.
  6. Yellow Bar

  7. Adjust the yellow bar to the edges of the part of the song that you would like to use. (It must be less than 40 seconds in length.)
  8. Auto Adjust

  9. If the song is short enough, iTunes can automatically select the appropriate length to convert into a ringtone.
  10. Send To iTunes

  11. Once you’ve got your region selected, simply go to Share -> Send Ringtone to iTunes, and GarageBand will convert and then add your new ringtone to iTunes’ ringtone section automatically.
  12. iTunes Ringtone

  13. Sync your iPhone, and rejoice at your newly acquired ability to add any song as a ringtone.

It’s that easy.

…Your Mac can be a Wiinstrument?

The Wiinstrument

The Wiinstrument is an application that allows you to connect a Wiimote and Nunchuck to your Mac via Bluetooth, and turns your Mac into a MIDI controlling machine.

After syncing the controllers to your Mac, you make music by simply moving them around. The buttons and directional pad select instruments, and the software even taps into the Wiimote’s motion sensor to vary the sound depending on the speed of your swing.

It’s still in Beta, so there are bound to be a few bugs, but with an open source code, they should get squished quickly.

Ready to rock the world?

Then give the Wiinstrument a try.
