"Awesome tagging software for BPM and Mood version (4.2)"

October 19, 2016  |  By AAUSoftware

2016-10-19 04:56:22  |  By AAUSoftware

 |  Version: SongKong 3.14

Pros

- Tags with BPM and Mood
- Both BPM and Mood are very precise
Gives a complete report in HTML that shows:
- Matches/unmatches with databases
- Changes in matches
- Tags automatically
- Play the song from the report

Cons

Not all songs can be matched
- Language does not always fit to the actual language of the song, but rather the artist
- Report could should also be available in other formats like XML instead of HTML.

Summary

It is very good at tagging your music and gives a greate resume of the songs you have chosen to tag

"Very inaccurate. iTunes does all the same stuff better."

 |  Version: SongKong 3.14

Pros

None that I can see.

Cons

Very inaccurate. Complex interface. Poor support.

Summary

1. Inaccurate: Numerous songs were mistagged and separated from the rest of the album to which they belonged. This was so bad that I had to restore my entire (6000 song) library from a backup taking hours to accomplish. Also, the software does not seem to recognize compilations, as the one I had was separated into several different albums (the original ones from which they were extracted) even though the song metadata included the compilation album name as well as the song name.

Support: While the developer did make suggestions, he ignored my statement that I had followed his suggestions and got the wrong results a second time requiring another restoration of my 70 GB library, because his "undo" command failed. He insulted me for not reading the instructions for his interface (for which see below). The trial version did not write the changes so I had no way to see if it was working using iTunes. He refused to refund my money.

Interface: Probably the most complex interface I have ever seen (and I have been using purchased software since 1980). Starting to fix songs brings up a set of preferences, some technical, on which there are no fewer than 11 tabs! This requires reading a lot of documentation. I prefer intuitive software.

This is the second of this sort of software I have tried. The other was just as bad. Stick with iTunes. You can do all the same things with it, and it works most of the time (and it's much maligned interface is better than that of SongKong).

"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.
