On Friday 24th of February at the Bristol Sound & Vision show we jointly announced a new version of SongKong for Melco, simply called SongKong for Melco. Melco are recognised worldwide for their high quality music library systems made with the highest quality audio specific components that allow music to be stored in digital format and then streamed to a music player or connected directly to a DAC (Digital Audio Converter) for connection to a conventional hi-fi system.
With SongKong for Melco we have solved an issue for customers with collection of Naim wav rips. The popular Naim Uniti defaults to ripping to Wav format, it then looks up metadata from AllMusicGuide and Cddb. But this metadata is stored in a file called amginfo.xml or cddb.txt within the same folder as the wav rips for the album rather than stored within the Wav files themselves. This is fine as long as you only play them via Naim but if you copied the files anywhere else no metadata would show up for the Wav files, regardless of if the amginfo.xml or cddb.txt files were copied as well since only Naim Uniti could parse them.
But now with SongKong for Melco if you have any Naim wav folders that contain the Wavs and the Amginfo.xml/cddb.txt file then the metadata can now be embedded into the Wav files themselves, this can now be read and used by most applications and players such as http://minimserver.com/ and www.foobar2000.org. Of course you can additionally use SongKongs standard MusicBrainz and Discogs functionality to find additional metadata such as high resolution artwork.
If you are an existing SongKong user requiring this specialist functionality please contact us.
