Editors' Review

+

Despite a glut of free player/encoders, it's tough to find one that meets our expectations. Formerly known as Sound DB, MediaMonkey has excellent library-management tools that keep the largest digital music collections well organized. Stir that up with integrated CD and DVD burning, a stellar interface, a full-featured encoder, and the ability to sync with portable audio devices such as the iPod, and you have a pretty compelling product.

Upon first launch, the program scans your drive for supported digital media files to add to the library. Files are sorted based on their ID3 tags, and the helpful Auto-Rename and Auto-Tag From Filename features keep untagged tracks from falling through the cracks. Party mode locks down your library while still allowing people to request songs. Auto DJ plays selections from your library even when there are no requests in the queue, and the all-important iPod and portable device synchronization works well. Third-party plug-ins are available from the site if you want to tinker with the playback and encoding engine or add additional sound-processing effects. The interface is well designed, with clean, colorful icons throughout.

Considering the overall polish of this application, you'll be hard-pressed to find anything you don't like. Although it's definitely geared toward managing extensive collections, just about anyone will appreciate the comprehensive feature set. For $20, MediaMonkey Gold adds advanced features such as sleep, scripting, previewing, and on-the-fly file conversion when syncing with a portable device.

"Simply The Best"

May 27, 2008  |  By theconsultant

 |  Version: MediaMonkey Standard 3.0.2.1134

Pros

This software is full featured and well thought out. It does EVERYTHING - synch with iPod, level volume, auto-rename files based on tags, you name it. I've tried them all for years and this software is the best Swiss Army Knife of media managers/players. I am so surprised Microsoft hasn't just bought them out and merged the features with Windows Media Player like they do with anyone else who makes better software than they do.

Cons

Nothing is 100% perfect. Everyone is going to find some little thing they don't like. But the thing is, the developer is VERY repsonsive to user needs and quickly puts in the requested new features in new versions.

"the best music player around"

May 19, 2008  |  By candy_addict

 |  Version: MediaMonkey Standard 3.0.2.1134

Pros

Well, I have to admit that the "sleep" feature is what got me into MM, but I was also blown away by the rest. I can't see a reason why you would stick with winamp or iTunes having this media player available.

"Easy, Fast, Recommended"

May 15, 2008  |  By ipmccauley

 |  Version: MediaMonkey Standard 3.0.2.1134

Pros

All pluses and no minuses for this piece of software. Ease of use, ease of install, fast processing, and a merriad of functions are just the beginning. Been in the biz for 15 years and know a good product when I see one. This is a good product.

Cons

Hard to find something i dont like.

"Not as praised in reviews"

May 14, 2008  |  By EdProf

 |  Version: MediaMonkey Standard 3.0.2.1134

Pros

It will find everything in every player: WMP, iTunes, VCast, etc. to list. It will rip everything pretty easily and quickly.

Cons

I didn't like that in burning a cd of downloaded music that it did not retain the order; it uses the Windows alphabetical file listing. Not knowing all the terminology in computer music, I didn't navigate the menus well to do what I was looking to do. I'm sure that it's a good program; I didn't find it to match the reviews I read.
