The musical widget madness continues. powermac99 from iCompositions points out his Dashboard Widgets site. Like Apple’s, it’s beautifully organized and easy to navigate — too bad Konfabulator’s site is overwhelming. (Maybe that’ll change with Yahoo.)


I’ve been hunting around that site finding still more widgets:


CountBPM is my favorite BPM counter yet: click or keyboard input tap tempo, and you can view lots of data to help you accurately guess the tempo.


Digidesign Widget lets you search both Digidesign and M-Audio.com for products and tech info.


Piano isn’t just a keyboard widget. It supports QuickTime synths, QWERTY and mouse input, configurable velocity, and lots more. Useful for plunking on the road.


SoundVolume is a volume widget, and it looks kinda like the faders on my Mackie.


KrispyKreme, while not strictly music-themed, keeps my blood-sugar level safe. Now if it could only tell me when the doughnuts are hot.


Maybe we should create a CDM widget after all. It can’t just search CDM, though: it needs to count BPM, tune your guitar, and check your record sales at the same time.
