I used it on 1,200 wav files. Took time to work through where the data is kept so I could do an export to Excel - but it worked fine

Essential app
Verified Buyer
SongKong
Does what it is supposed to do, some functions are complicated to perform, user interface is rather primitive, it is rather slow, it took about 72 hours to fix my collection of 3000 albums.

Hi Mike, thanks for the review, that is much longer than usual usually can do about 1000 albums an hour but it is slower if files are stored on a different server if wifi is slow. If you have any ideas about how yo would like the interface improved please post some answers on the forum, always happy to consider customer ideas.

It gets 4 stars from me because feature wise it has no competitors AFAIK (at least not ones that work on Linux). The UI is much improved from the much older version that I upgraded from, though I am not a fan of "subscription-like" model that is now being used (I understand why the dev is doing that but still not a fan). What would make it even better, for me would be opus and itunes like Explicit Song tagging. Anyway, would I continue to pay for it, yes, its the best/only of its kind that works in linux.

Does what it should

It does pretty much what it should. Only improvement I could think of is an interactive mode to see what it does exactly with some selection of albums.

Thanks Boris, regarding interactive mode have you treied out the new Match to One Album task, this lets you select from a list of possible matches and review changes and do further editing before saving the changes.

The app is great, but not as simple as it could be, there could be a standard baseline of function, then the elite can manipulate the settings to suit their needs. From a test perspective, I processed say 100gb of various files, it ruined almost all of the existing structure and placed the various artist in with the artists albums, detached existing complete albums into va folders to a point where nearly all the files were stripped and put into random albums. I patiently used jaikoz to manually process my collection, I can't say after buying songkong w/pro that'll I ever use it, jaikoz is more reliable. The music scene seems a mess, a universal standard of genres for example doesn't even seem to be established between jaikoz and songkong? Processing music files is such a convoluted process compared to tv/movies, it seems between disco and brainz or any other website/forum etc. a case of the more eccentric the better causing dysfunction in the meta world of music. These apps are brilliant in their right but destructive at best not carefully watched. I use them purely for a mass naming tool more than anything else. Im not a scientific meta wiz and Until it becomes cleaner from the initial install by identifying your use of the app with a check list of how you want to process your collection, the stock settings cannot be trusted and diving into the sets after install is daunting. I use media centre master, have done for years, great thing to note is you can backup your profile/s as you use the app. This makes it a shit load easier to manage when you have a reinstall, new pc etc. I've been using the same profile saves for 10+ yrs.. I'd feel safer about using it if shared profile sets from users with similar collections were used, I guess I don't know enough about meta and where it comes from and how is attached to different files to change many settings safely without wasting time having to undo or test everything I do with the app, isn't that what developers do? We all have the same music to a degree but who keeps changing the meta Hahaha anyway my two bobs worth Paul, cheers inexperienced user with money to burn on apps that don't give me confidence to use them to their true potential.

Hi Chris, Would be great if you could run Create Support Files so we can see your report and look into this as not usual behaviour. Worth noting the Fix Songs task does not even rename files, the Rename Files task renames based on the metadata in the files, also note there is an Undo Changes task you can run if you dont like the results.

Was not able to get info from wav music files or mp3 files. seems like it needs the album name to get info. I do not have the album names. Jiakoz would not even start up - some kind of license issue even though I have a license.jai file To get the info I need I will do web lookups - time consuming - but I will get the data

Impressed with the precision
Verified Buyer
SongKong
I am impressed with the precision in determining my music tracks. After some initial testing, I ran SongKong on my entire collection of approx. 7000 single tracks and have not yet discovered any errors in the identifications. Furthermore, the cleanup function with sorting by album worked flawlessly. Although my previous version of Jaikoz way back in 2010, was also good, I am happy with the new update.

Very useful software, when you take the time to decide what you need it to do. At first I just let it do it's thing and it seemed to mess up a lot of cover art by replacing it with the rear cover. My bad, once I had selected just the front cover and tracks etc it worked really well.
Overall very impressed
Update. I think the issue with the rear cover art being shown, was due to the app I was using to access the media player, would read the cover art alphabetically. And "Back cover" comes before "Front cover". As mentioned it was an easy thing to update. "RTFM" as they say.
Response from JThink

Hi Andy, thanks for review, SongKongwill not replace frontcover artwork with rear cover artwork it will add it as well. Maybe your music player just displays any artwork in the file without checking its type, if you would like to post more details on the forum we can look into this further.

I've been using Jaikoz for years. It is always helpful when I download new music because my computer doesn't always list the music or tracks.

Used SongKong to identify cd rips with very limited info written in Chinese characters.the only thing could find in earlier stages was the name of the singer. SongKong managed to find the rest of the information.
On another occasion it was not clear which version of a musical was ripped. Fingerprinting helped a lot.
However, writing ROON specific tags to the files did not give the results I was hoping for. An Evening With Diana Ross is one of many albums with different track arrangements, depending on country or date of release.
The actual version I own still fails to be recognized properly.
