"Upgrade a complete fail"

September 21, 2013  |  By kk9014

 |  Version: TuneUp Media 2.2.0

Pros

(I thought it) Worked reasonably well in last version.

Cons

Customer Support non-existent
Destroys classical music libraries

Summary

I had been using Tuneup for a couple of years on a 1,500 album collection stored on a network drive. In V3.0.5, it took hours to synch, and repeatedly ran out of memory before completing it's automagic analysis. Despite having paid for the premium version with support, received no response despite submitting updated support requests over 10 days.

After scanning my library for duplicates with alternative products I realize that tuneup had screwed up the metadata on many of my classical albums so that different movements of a piece were considered duplicates, for example.

I uninstalled - you can save yourself the trouble by not installing in the first place.

"NEW VERSION 2.4 is FANTASTIC"

March 04, 2012  |  By 1sdman

 |  Version: TuneUp Media 2.2.0

Pros

Fast, accurate,brings in artwork as well as all the title, artist, year and other info.

New version has fixed ALL the known issues I had. DO NOT base your purchase on any other version, the old one actually was weak in a few areas but this is fixed. I have a 24,000 song library and this is now much faster for all operations.

LOVE IT!

Cons

Version 2.4.0 seems to be near perfect.

Summary

I have used TuneUp Pro for the last three versions. Yes, it had problems before but it was still worth it. Now it seems they have worked out all the bugs and it runs like we all wanted! Very pleased. I have a fairly large library of 24,000+ songs. Now there are no slowdowns anywhere in the various situations or scenarios like the old versions.
Ver 2.4.0 is great - I HIGHLY recommend now.

"One of a kind"

January 25, 2012  |  By DCpolitico

 |  Version: TuneUp Media 2.2.0

Pros

There is no other application I have found on the market that does what TuneUp does. The only alternative is cleaning your library by hand. Which means looking up tracks, labeling, finding duplicates, and I'm not eve sure where you would begin on the cover art.

Cons

Can be slow processing, and can crash, best to do in small doses

Summary

If you don't dare attempt to clean your library by hand this app is the way to go.

"Cover Art, De-Dupe, and Labels"

January 24, 2012  |  By ArlingtonTechie

 |  Version: TuneUp Media 2.2.0

Pros

I have a lot of downloaded music in my library a.k.a. a lot of songs with no titles, no covers, and some duplicates I don't know about because many of the songs are untitled. TuneUp first labeled all my songs, then got rid of all my duplicates, and added cover art to all my downloaded songs.

Cons

A few of the songs were labeled incorrectly and some of the cover art was off. I broke the library down into smaller parts to speed up processing.

Summary

If you have a junky looking library this is the software for you.

"Pure Rubbish"

January 22, 2012  |  By stevenstumpf

 |  Version: TuneUp Media 2.2.0

Pros

I tried nearly all 'music matching' services, couldn't find one that's good. And oh, money doesn't matter to me.

Cons

- Extremely slow
- Expensive
- Inaccurate
- Works with commercial collection discs, and gives commercial names to it. A correct 'Dr. Felix' will be replaces by 'Various Artists' (this will be the case for 70% of their 'matches')

Summary

Poor program. To avoid. Same goes for all other automatic mp3 tagging programs.

"Super Time Saver"

December 28, 2011  |  By ashleigh_k

 |  Version: TuneUp Media 2.2.0

Pros

- Elliminates your duplicate tracks (only missed a few of mine)
- Adds Song Titles/Artists/Album (again, I was surprised at the accuracy)
- Adds Cover Art (Less accurate than the other two features but still pretty cool)

Cons

- Takes longer to run that I expected
- Occasional errors in song/duplicates
- Can crash if you select too much music at a time

Summary

This organized my iTunes with little effort required from me. Manually removing duplicates and listening too/looking up song titles/album titles/artists is a huge time suck. TuneUp really saved me a headache. I think I would have made more mistakes looking up and labeling songs by hand than TuneUp did automatically.

"TuneUp Gold's "lifetime" upgrade...ISN'T."

December 23, 2011  |  By vandrakes

 |  Version: TuneUp Media 2.2.0

Pros

App works fine; filled in the blanks that iTunes had.

Cons

Slow and buggy. Worse than that, after buying a "lifetime" Gold license, the company added a "DeDuper" to the application and offered 25 demo "dedupes"...after which "lifetime" members could pay more money for additional "dedupes." Other software is out there...BUY IT INSTEAD.

"Finally made my iTunes library look legitimate!"

December 19, 2011  |  By nmdallas86

 |  Version: TuneUp Media 2.2.0

Pros

For the past half a decade I have been adding to my library from all sorts of websites and even old mix CDs. This has resulted in lots of duplicates, songs that are virtually impossible to find since they are improperly labeled, and maybe one out of every ten songs actually has an album cover associated with it. TuneUp was able to get rid of virtually all of my duplicates, and add song titles and album covers to probably 90% of my library.

Cons

It took a little while to go through my whole library, which I guess is understandable. I did have it crash on me when I tried to do my whole library at one time, but when I broke it down into smaller chunks I didn't have a problem. Like I said in the pro section, it got rid of almost all my duplicates, but it still did miss a few and messed up on some of the cover art.

Summary

If you are kind of OCD like I am and the fact that your library isn't organized eventually starts to bug you then this is worth your $40. You have to be patient, and break it down into small segments to avoid crashing. The end result is a lot of saved time and a library that you can actually find all those "hidden gems" you downloaded years ago and totally forgot about.
