    This is kind of general so feel free to re-direct me.

    I don't like the way shuffle works as it is. Which ever artist has the largest discography is bound to get played the most. If there was a way I could shuffle not by picking a random song but by randomly selecting an artist then randomly picking a song it would be a more democratic way of shuffling my music.
    As is I just capped my albums for each artist at 5-6 but what if I want someones entire 20 album discography but I don't want to have to skip through them 100 times on shuffle.

    Thanks

    I know. I too feel that the iPod touch is a very... LIMITED device. Maybe you could try creating playlists entitled "Artist X", "Artist Y" and so on... I never tried it, tho. I usually create my On-The-Go playlist according to the mood I'm in and don't use the Shuffle function very often.
