music ip

Curious .. is there a way to get this musicip to look up all my songs and update all the fields correctly - i.e atist - title - album - track - etc.   Is it pretty accurate?  how does it work, i cant find much info about it.  Sounds like a very good tool.

Re: music ip

It is possible to have it run for every song that it finds -- but it is quite slow (around 20s per song, instead of 5songs per second).  Plus, if the song isn't already in the MusicIP database, it can require up to 60s or so (and that 60s just means that MusicIP might be able to identify it the NEXT time you scan).

The real advantage of MusicIP is that it can identify completely mislabeled/mistagged songs.  It actually does a frequency analysis of the song file to determine a song fingerprint -- so it doesn't care if it is at 96 or 256KBPS, or if it is WAV, WMA, MP3 or OGG.

Take a look at the information in Detail View -- you can actually click on a button to see the lookup information for songs that were analyzed.  Usually, that information directly links you to all the versions of that song out there, plus links to the artist and album.

Re: music ip

so is there anyway to choose a song, or several songs already in list view and look them up?

Re: music ip

I plan to add that ability -- but right now, MusicIP lookup only happens during the initial scan.
