The Hype Machine Track Downloader is a self explanatory Firefox extension that allows you to download tracks you play on the Hype Machine website.
If you're fond of the music you find on the Hype Machine website and want to save some tracks for offline listening, you could of course click through to the blog serving the file and download tracks from there. While this method works, it requires you to jump out of the Hype Machine website and forces you to search for the track.
The Hype Machine Track Downloader simplifies the whole process by showing a "download track" button on currently playing tracks. What's great about The Hype Machine Track Downloader extension is that it caches the songs the moment it starts streaming so the song is saved instantly once you click "download."
There are no options to adjust with this extension. Just install it and it works. One thing we would love to see The Hype Machine Track Downloader implement is the ability to download songs in bulk.
Overall, we love the simplicity of The Hype Machine Track Downloader but we wish there was a way to download songs in bulk.
