Nine Inch Nails PodcastsMar 4th, 2008 | By James Lewin | Category: Digital Music
When we were checking out Nine Inch Nails’ site for their new release, Ghosts I-IV, we noticed that they are doing some really interesting things with podcasting, remixing and Creative Commons.
- Many of their tracks are available with Remix-ready Garageband files.
- Ghosts I-IV is made available with a Creative Commons license and with multi-track stems for remixing.
- They’ve got a site devoted to fan remixes.
They also provide good information on using RSS feeds, and offer podcast feeds for their fan remixes:
To use RSS feeds as podcasts with iTunes, simply drag the icon for the feed you want into iTunes. iTunes will then automatically download MP3s when new remixes are added – you can even sync them to your iPod.
