Equinux has launched updates to both its SongGenie and CoverScout applications, and furthered their integration. SongGenie 1.1 adds the ability to apply all identified track information at once, instead of having to work on individual tracks, and features both a new mode that enables the program to try and identify and analyze track information automatically, and a function for people who keep music on external hard drives that allows users to include the archives when exporting.
CoverScout 3.1 features album-art copying capabilities that make it possible to insert existing album art from the iTunes Store directly into the music files, which in turn enables users to move the music archives without loosing the album cover. The update also adds a function that allows users to access tracks from SongGenie from within the CoverScout application, to help avoid problems such as incorrect song information and typos.
Additional integration with the two programs provides a SongGenie feature that assigns CoverScout to find a cover for the users identified tracks. Both programs are available for download and are free upgrades. SongGenie is currently priced at $30 for new users, while CoverScout costs $40.
