"Handy to decide which version of a song file to keep."

Lets you load two music files at the same time, something I haven't found in other programs. After much trial-and-error, it let me compare the files at any point in the song to see which sounds better, or one is shorter than the other.


Display doesn't handle "large fonts" setting in Vista (I think that's the cause). Numbers don't align over background areas and display on top of each other.
Purple bar in the center (also misaligned) is confusing -- I clicked in area below it and the black-on-almost-black shaded area changes shape. This synchronizes the two tracks to start at different points in the song.
Loading the same file in twice shows this message: "The device name is already being used as an alias by this application. Use a unique alias."
Descriptions of the program led me to believe it could compare hash values between the two files. I think what they meant was this tool is handy for the cases where you CAN'T compare hash values, it lets you use your ears instead of a numeric value.
Would be helpful to show hash, size, length, format, bit-rate for both song files.
Pause buttons are confusing, they pause the currently playing file but also turn the other file on and off? Hard to tell what's going on.


Very nice idea. Frustrating to use since there's nothing to explain how it works. Once I figured it out and ignored the display errors, it does exactly what I need!

Update: I put my comments on the author's website and he answered within several hours - very responsive! He sent a link to version 1.2 which fixes all the issues I found in version 1.1. Text and the purple bar are aligned properly, the Pause buttons work as expected.

The author also informed me there is a help file. I found it with the other icons for the program in the Start menu, under All Programs / ZiiN. The help file answered my questions.

I would change my rating to 4.5 stars if I could, for version 1.2 (for 5 it would also need to list file size and bit rate, etc., for each file). It really does make easy to compare files with your ears! I recommend starting with version 1.1, and grab 1.2 when it's available here.
