"You'll have better luck labeling the songs yourself"

January 18, 2014  |  By mylifeasian

 |  Version: Rinse 1.912

Pros

-Sometimes gets the labeling right
-Pretty easy to use

Cons

-Often mislabels songs
-Can't get a single song right unless you spoonfeed it most of the information already

Summary

I wanted to test this out so I messed the labeling up on an album I had from Frank Ocean. When I tried "rinsing" it, they kept giving me No Church in the Wild. So I decided to try it on No Church in the Wild and it didn't even get it right. No use in paying $40 for something that can't get any song right.

"Program Errors & Horrible Customer Service"

March 10, 2013  |  By DWeide1

 |  Version: Rinse 1.912

Pros

- The interface looks nice.
- Able to do a whopping 10 songs at a time before it crashes... nice feature.

Cons

- Crashes when trying to connect to iTunes: "iTunes Is Not Responding" error.
- Stability problems with Adobe Air (which it uses to work).
- HORRIBLE customer service, they will send you non-personal e-mail responses that are clearly copy-paste responses they used on other customers. After nearly 2 months, they will simply stop responding, their hope is your frustration will just make you go away and forget the money.
- Did I mention HORRIBLE customer service??

Summary

Rinse is a waste of money... do your homework, many-many people experiencing errors with it. I wish I had researched more before

I'm taking the time to post this because Rise "RealNetworks" customer service and technical support told me they don't care that Rinse is failing to work (massive errors) and they stopped responding to me.

- Error 1: Rinse will run up to about 10 songs before it crashes and says "iTunes Is Not Responding" (Google it, widespread issue with Rinse).
- Error 2: Rinse will hang on song 2 or 3 for no reason (the only program on my computer that does this.

I have tested Rinse on 2 computers with the same results. Rinse "RealNetworks" technical support quite literally copies & pastes e-mail responses to you that were responses they used to send to other people before... I've received two responses now where they put my name at the start of the e-mail but in the first paragraph, they call me a different name (my name is Dave, not Nick or Susan). I've been in e-mail communication with the tech support for nearly 2 months, and now they are not responding -- the just wanted me to go away.

I am not advocating for any other iTunes clean-up tool... I haven't tried another yet, but I will tell you that I have two computers and both have errors with Rinse. I'm running an i7 PC with Windows 7 and a 27" iMac (mid 2011) with a 3.4GHz i7 processor and 16 GB of Ram... not a computer issue, it's a software issue and customer service will wait you out.

If you get it - best of luck.
Dave

"HORRIBLE! MIS-LABELS SONGS! DO NOT BUY/USE"

January 07, 2013  |  By fluffylemming

 |  Version: Rinse 1.912

Pros

Absolutely nothing.

Cons

The program took previously correct songs and changed the information (including titles). For example, when "fixing" the library, it took Ben Harper's "Burn one down" and changed it to "Burn to Shine." It did this with 95% certainty that it was correct! Messing up a library's information is inexcusable at any price.
Also, the duplicate song finder removes any two songs with the same name and ignores the fact that the two might be different versions, on different albums, or by different artists (e.g., live versions).
On top of everything, their customer service is awful. I sent the above information to them and they replied back "we're sorry the album artwork isn't working, please check that your settings are correct and try again."

Summary

DO NOT BUY OR USE THIS PRODUCT. IT WILL RUIN YOUR MUSIC LIBRARY'S INFORMATION!!!

"Use this if you want to get rid of your music files"

October 28, 2012  |  By tk1699

 |  Version: Rinse 1.912

Pros

It does seem to clean dup's for a while

Cons

Just when you trust it to clean a large library it deletes 80% of your files - I juste wiped out 180 gig of music from a 200 gig lib as easily and quickly as I've ever done - wonderful if you want to get rid of your music. If only Itunes would create a decent product we wouldn't have to deal with crappy third party stuff.

Summary

I've had this product for years and have known about it's limitations for as long - I thought being diligent about redundant backups would enable me to take advantage of its ability to get rid of dups - nah - this product is very thin ice my friends.
