Hi am new to using songkong need help this program dose not work well for me its making a mess of my music library its does not organizes my music library correct when looking up I have complete album in there own folder for that album with there songs for that album and its splitting the album songs apart and making new folders and and some of the complete album into different folders with different names that has nothing to do with the song and album
Hi, its rare for SongKong to match the wrong song but if your album is not in the database and SongKong finds your songs in a different album it can cause a song to be linked to the wrong album and then songs from one album to be broken up into multiple albums.
You can repair the damage by loading the problem folder into SongKong and selecting Undo Changes Made to revert all the changes to those files and even rename the files back to what they were, this works even if you restart SongKong.
You can stop it happening in the first place by selecting Only allow matches if all songs in folder match to one album on the first tab.
If you send me your support files ( Help/Create Support Files ) and give me an example I can probably work out why it did a poor match in the first place.
Hi paultaylor thanks for letting me know that there was a new songkong 1.9 with more improvements I just tried it out on a few album one at a time looks to work better for me that way I wanted to see if you can help me out when I tried it today on a few album there was a few that it can not find and fix for me why is this and is there anything I can do to get songkong to find and fix theses album for me theses were the album it could not find and fix for me
Hi paultaylor yeah it looks like theses album are not on musicbrainz what would you recommend me to use to be able to lookup and tag theses hard to find album that songkong can not lookup and tag for me also are you guys planning on adding in the future search support on to songkong to also use discogs and freedb database would be nice to see songkong use others then just musicbrainz
Hi paulyaylor no theses albums are not on discogs but would be nice to also be able to match songs from discogs hope you guys get this working soon what would you recommend me to use to be able to tag theses hard to find albums that are not on discogs and musicbrainz that songkong can not tag because of that
If they are not on Musicbrainz or Discogs I would suggest you added them to Musicbrainz yourself as its a community database that anyone can contribute to. You then have the benefit that not only can the metadata be matched by SongKong, but also your songs will contain Musicbrainz Ids so they can be used with any Musicbrainz enabled software.
