For the 1990s Minidisc enthusiast who has everything (except a Minidisc Label Printer).
A chap on Patreon commented on the ‘killer track list’ on the Hip Hop MD - Its straight off a recent compilation - Four CDs - 72 Tracks all with CD Text £4.40 Amazon UK https://amzn.to/2tAN8cs (affiliated link)
It’s also worth looking at the ‘frequently bought together’ list for some similar deals.
A few comments regarding why not just use a computer printer and standard adhesive labels instead. Many of us did, but the clever aspect of this machine is its ability to read in the track titles automatically. No typing required. I thought it was a novelty worth sharing because of that feature. If it had been a label printer with a querty keyboard which was used to manually enter the track names, that would have held no interest to me and wouldn't have warranted a video.
There have been a few suggestions of transplanting other labels into the cases.
There are cut-out designs on the Sony Labels - I'd imagine these are unique to this printer. Square holes along the length of the label strip in-between each label. These holes are used by the machine to advance and to identify the label status. Generic labels would likely not be manufactured with identical cut-outs.
It's not a big deal though - I'm just showing some odd old tech that I thought was interesting. It doesn't have to work forever, just long enough to document it for posterity in a video...which it did. Mission complete.
