The HAL Digital Music Center is designed to give you the same easy voice control of your entire music collection that HAL extends to all of the devices in your home.
With the HAL Digital Music Center (DMC) you can "rip" all of your CDs onto your PC’s hard drive. The DMC will automatically categorize your music by artist, song, album, genre, and year. You can tell HAL to play a single song –- or all the music by a particular artist. Tell HAL to play jazz –- or all the music in your collection from 1985! You can create custom play lists for even greater control of your music. Finally, all of your music is at the tip of your tongue!
In addition to making your music more accessible, HAL will help you bring your music into the way you live in your home. Using popular HAL features like Room Scenes and House Modes, you can select music for HAL to play when you are dining or reading or partying! Tell HAL to put the house in "dinner mode" and you might have the lights dim in the dining room and your HAL DMC will play a collection of your most appetizing tunes!
