SongGenie debuts

Equinux has released SongGenie, an application designed to analyze, detect and label music data. Once installed, the program automatically searches a computer's archive for music tracks, and creates an acoustic fingerprint for each one. As each song is logged, it keeps track of any incomplete and incorrect album, artist or song title information. Based on specific characteristics, SongGenie then finds the missing data and gives users the option of applying correct labels.

SongGenie is said to be particularly useful for the Genius function in iTunes, and run on Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. The personal edition of the software is priced at $30, while a family edition for up to five Macs costs $45.

    Does not work...

    I downloaded this software and tested it in demo mode. It failed to identify the missing metadata for all 6 files I tried before it went into an infinite nag loop to buy the software.

    Turns out the 6 tracks were by The Beatles, Metallica, and multiple Motown artists.

    Epic Fail, as it were. Macnn should consider even a cursory testing of software before posting a press release for it.
