We've got a nice stereo with 1/8" jack for audio devices, 5x RCA in, 1x SPDIF in, A/B speaker outs.  Two Klipsch SB-5 speakers for now; a bit small for the space, but better than a PC laptop speaker.

[[Pony]] holds all the music, [[Zebra]] accesses the music and plays it on the speakers. '''The easiest way to control what music [[Zebra]] plays is to connect to its web interface at [http://pony.noise/juke http://pony.noise/juke].'''
 
 
 
===Playing Music===
 
[[Zebra]] has a mount to [[Pony]]'s music directory (pony.noise:/d2/music). [http://mpd.wikia.com/ MPD] scans this directory and builds up a library based off of its contents. [[Zebra]] can then play back anything form that library through the speakers at 83c. In order to tell MPD on [[Zebra]] what to play, you'll need to interface to it with a [http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Clients client], which is available for many operating systems. Luckily for you a web interface has already been setup on [[Pony]], but if you want more control please look into the clients.
 
 
 
* '''Web Desktop:''' [http://pony.noise/juke http://pony.noise/juke] or [http://172.30.0.30/juke http://172.30.0.30/juke]
 
* '''Web Mobile:''' [http://pony.noise/juke/m http://pony.noise/juke/m] or [http://172.30.0.30/juke/m http://172.30.0.30/juke/m]
 
* '''MPD Client:''' zebra.noise or 172.30.0.37 port 6600
 
 
 
The desktop web interface if [http://relaxx.dirk-hoeschen.de/ relaXX] and the mobile is [http://code.google.com/p/neompc/ NeoMPC].
 
 
 
If you'd like to play files directly from [[Zebra]] and bypass MPD altogether, shell access (user name and password) is posted above the machine (above the window next to the machine). For admin access please poke [[User:Rubin110]].
 
 
 
===Getting Music into the Jukebox===
 
Music content lives on [[Pony]], not [[Zebra]]. You'll need an account on [[Pony]], using your favorite method of putting files on a different machine please place your music in pony.noise:/d2/music. Once there, refresh the MPD library through your favorite client or the web interface.
 
 
 
==AirTunes==
 
AirTunes is a way to stream audio over the network to speakers. This is done with an Apple Airport Express. All internet routing/firewall functionality of the Airport Express have been turned off. The Airport is connected to the network via wifi to the noisebridge SSID.
 
 
 
The Airport is connected to the Jukebox machine via linein. '''There is no need to change inputs on the receiver/amp!''' Please keep in mind that audio from both the Jukebox and AirTunes can play at the same time.
 
 
 
To use AirTunes simply select "Nosebridge" from the speakers list at the bottom right of iTunes. If you use something other then iTunes, let's say WinAMP, there are a number of other applications out there to stream music to an AirTunes server. For Windows try [http://nanocr.eu/software/justeport/ JustePort] and for Linux there's [http://raop-play.sourceforge.net/ raop-play].
 
 
 
See [[AirTunes from Linux]] if you want to see how to use I have set up AirTunes access from a Linux machine.
 
 
 
== Using ESD ==
 
 
 
The easiest way to play music over the jukebox thing from a GNU system:
 
 
 
$ ESPEAKER=zebra.noise mplayer -ao esd $FILE
 
 
 
== .door ==
 
At acm.jhu.edu, the computer controlling the mag-stripe card reader that would unlock the door would also play a file in /home/username/.door on the speakers in the room.  Ta-da - entrance music!
 
 
 
This should probably be added to the feature requests to be added to our [[AccessSystem]]
 
 
 
== Old Jukebox Server ==
 
 
 
This machine is dead, it's been replaced with [[Zebra]]. Everything in the home directory has been backed up to [[Pony]].

Music Guild maintains audio area and does music classes and random jam sessions!

"Enjoy the Silence"

—Depeche Mode

If you like to jam, record, produce, build instruments or just learn about music... you've come to the right place.

Music, what?[edit]

Always be considerate to others at the space. See Audio if you are looking for more information on various sound systems around Noisebridge so you can just listen to music.
We, the Music Guild, are a loosely organized group of individuals enjoying music creation at Noisebridge.

Status of Music Classes at Noisebridge[edit]

Classes can be organized through Zoom on Meetup. Everything is in a state of fairly intense disarray. We could use your help! It is time for us to re-organize and get ourselves together. Happily accepting your input over on Discuss. Here is the photo from Audio Church:
