"Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

April 09, 2016  |  By jhs39

2016-04-09 17:11:53  |  By jhs39

 |  Version: SongKong 3.14

Pros

Automatically updates tags, filenames and even folder structure of music library. Includes integration with Itunes (which I don't use) and offers Plex Media Center preferred file structure (which I do use). Can handle very large libraries without crashing.

Cons

Causes more problems than it fixes. In multiple cases broke up artists into (actual examples) Bangles & The Bangles; Pretenders and The Pretenders without recognizing that they are the same bands. All of my music had artwork before scan. 50% did not afterward--the program apparently deleted my existing artwork. Doesn't seem to know what to do with singles, which more often than not the program simply ignores. As a test I ran my artist folder for the band 20/20 several times in a temp folder. 20/20 cannot be entered with the correct character in Windows. Program gave different results on multiple scans, labeling the artist 20.20, 20 20 and something else I can't remember. Program did nothing with the singles, so the artist in the metadata for them didn't match the albums and the artist in the albums didn't even match from album to album. Very frustrating.

Summary

This program is a huge waste of money. My music was already organized via artist and album in a designated music folder and all the tracks had names, so it should have been easy for SongKong to identify the music and fix the tags. The program couldn't tag most singles and ep's, so it created situations where the artist for those tracks was different in the metatag from the artist for the album (actual example--Tom Robinson & Robinson, Tom). This creates problems if you are trying to organize your library to use with Plex, Emby or even I-tunes since the entries show up as if they were different artists. Undo will only undo an entire operation, not individual albums or artists where it screwed up. This was money flushed down the toilet. Don't waste yours.

"OK, but problems."

 |  Version: SongKong 1.8

Pros

The software was able to identify and tag songs.

Cons

Though it tagged songs, it made quite a few mistakes. I didn't document the number, but I would guess it was as high as 1 in 10.

The system's connection to the online databases was spotty at best. It cancelled the operations over and over. I had numerous times where it was only able to complete 5-20 songs of the the 5,000 songs I was tagging before it timed out. I tried the option of downloading a database to my local drive and using a Virtual Machine. This never ended up working and just caused me hours upon hours of frustration.

Due to these problems, I had to check every song for accuracy, fix those and fill in the ones that didn't tag at all.

Summary

Overall, I felt it was a waste of $30 and a good deal of time.

"Automatically identify and tag your music"

September 04, 2013  |  By hiphutch

 |  Version: SongKong 1.8

Pros

I found this program very powerful and straight forward. I just point it to my music collection and it goes through and reads the info, identifies those that are missing info, and tags all my songs.

It does a great job at filling in missing info as it uses multiple sources to find the data needed such as musicbrainz, discogs, and acouticid.

Cons

Not really much of a con, but the program does need internet access to be able to use all the features. This is kind of a given as it needs to be able to communicate with musicbrainz, discogs, and acouticid.

Summary

Great little program. Very easy to use. Highly recommend trying it out!

"Very easy way to get your music into shape"

August 21, 2013  |  By MattSmith3

 |  Version: SongKong 1.6

Pros

I tried this with some trepidation as I have used automatic tagging tools before with limited success, but it worked !

Tried it on a couple of albums and very quickly it came back with a report showing all changes and my songs were all fixed when i looked in Winamp. Then tried it again on a 1000 songs and it took a while but had nearly matched all of them with pictures.

Cons

None really, you just have to try it, there was an Undo button as well but i haven't tried that.

Summary

Easy way to sort music out.
