I have some 9500 individual audio files I am trying to download which:

a) require a login to a website b) are located at subdirectories which ?redirects? to a download link

(eg. ==> prompt to download the whatever-file-name.mp3)

Can someone help me write a applescript/automator app that will visit "" wait until download finishes, +1 then visit: loop until 9600
