Title: New alias for recording using rec
Post by: VastOne on January 09, 2016, 07:26:48 PM
I use this method of recording from terminal (http://vsido.org/index.php?topic=773.0) quite a bit.  Before I go on a run or a bike ride I will record a shuffle of my stations from Pithos and enjoy the hell out of the music

I have created the following alias to make it easy to kick off recording easily

Code: [Select]
alias rek='cd $HOME/music && rec -C 320 "Pithos - Radio 3 hours.mp3"'
Note that you can put whatever you want instead of Pithos - Radio 3 hours.mp3, this just my method... Once I am done recording, I go to that directory, change the name to whatever I want it to be and then run puddletag to tag it and I am off and running or riding

Just add that line to your ~/.bash_aliases file and you are good to go ... you will need to re source your bash environment for it to work: in terminal simply run

for VSIDO users

Code: [Select]
re
or

Code: [Select]
source ~/.bashrc
I use rek as the alias because rec is already a command, you can name the alias anything you want

Profit
