Muso Review

Keep your music files organized and listen to your music, using Muso.

The ability to tag tracks makes your music library more responsive and more fun. Muso adds a much more dynamic tagging option to any song in your music library. This program isn't great as a music player, but if you want to make organizing your music easier, it might be worth the download.

Muso comes with a 30-day trial period after which you need to pay $9.41. The program doesn't find your music without you directing it to the right files. Since most Windows PCs store music files in the same place, this seems like it should be automatic. It doesn't help that the program sometimes decides to not look for those files once you've given the command to add them. But once you've added all of your songs, Muso can organize your files in plenty of cool ways. You can make playlists around a mood, an activity, and more. Then, files are automatically added as you tag them. Playing the tracks isn't really much fun, though. The only audio controls you get in the program are playing, pausing, and volume. There's no way to adjust tone, and creating playlists on the fly isn't easy.

If you've got a ton of music files on your computer, it's likely that you already have an organization system in place. If you're still looking, Muso might be the program for you. It's packed full of cool tools that will help you coordinate and collate your files. Don't expect to enjoy listening to them too much, though.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Muso 1.5.29.
