About the earlier “proof” with Tribute 11 remotes, simply, if there’s an “A-B” button…

On my 3 player remotes, respectively, CD-7, SA7001KI, and Ruby ([because I set the photo resolution too low, then found the camera battery is now drained] blue X marks the A-B feature):

I did look into CD11 Tribute's Owners Manual, it confirmed Repeat A-B function is missing. And, interestingly, saw rivalling CD6007's remote, it has no A-B button…

Me too Wil.
For me they're predominantly instrumental segments. It's amazing how just a few seconds can make a track exceptional.
Interesting how we all enjoy things differently. To me, that's like having a great meal in front of you and just eating repeated deserts. Don't get me wrong, there are songs where there's little payoff apart from something genuinely good, but that's not what I want from music myself.

Agreed. This is certainly not what the artist intended….! To me this is symptomatic of today’s generation with zero attention span, who won’t watch Youtube videos more than 5 minutes long and need instant gratification. Life is a journey not a race……

I doubt Gray would describe himself as belonging to 'today's generation'!
Gray doesn't belong to today's planet :alien:

If anything my attention span is too long. I don't just listen to the best bits - but on some tracks, I just have to repeat certain segments - more often than not, after the track has fully played.

Must admit I find the 2021 version of Virtual DJ fun. It's always had 'hot cues' and loops allowing you to punch in segments on the fly. But the latest version uses algorithms (rather than crude EQ) to isolate different 'stems' of the track.....try soloing or cutting different stems of music you know well.
(It's free to download).

Maybe Gray is part of today's generation (he hopes not).
Thinking about it......isn't everyone currently alive, part of today's generation?

I challenge everyone to regard themselves as an artist, especially respecting one’s own choices in interpreting another’s.
This is certainly not what the artist intended….!
I trust many readers have been expose to “artists” who say ‘once their work is released, the audience can do with it as they please.’ Is this not the best attitude?

And this thought is worth pondering, I can (but seldom would) reply to musicians that ‘I don’t play-an-instrument per se except for my playing of Hi-Fi.'
