I have tried tons of different software products to "clean" my music collection. Songkong is the best. The best way to describe Songkong is that it build "intelligence" on top of Musicbrainz Picard to take all of the manual work out of cleaning your music collection. Songkong not only cleans, but monitors your collection as new songs get added. This "monitoring" allows you to just sit back and let it "poll" your music collection as it continues to grow. Songkong also optionally deletes duplicate songs.

Songkong runs in Linux, Windows, and OSX. It uses 64-bit memory to take full advantage of your operating system. You can adjust the amount of memory it uses to further improve performance.

The developer responds immediately, always less than 24 hours. He is open to suggestions for new features. You really feel like your working on a team with him rather than as a customer. He not only responds well in the forums, but answers personal email about any questions, problems, and suggestions for new features.

Songkong has an "undo" feature that rolls back any changes you aren't happy with, though this rarely happens. Songkong build its own database for your collection, reducing the amount of times it must go and lookup data in Musicbrainz.

If you are looking to take the manual work out of tagging your music collection, Songbrainz does the best job of any product I've used. If you want to run your own Musicbrainz server it also allows for this option.

The developer has made many improvements in the past year to make it faster and more accurate. If it's been awhile since you've tried Songkong, I urge you to try it again. If you've never tried Songkong, give it a test drive and tell the author what you think. I guarantee you will get an immediate reply. It's an excellent value for the features that are built into the product. If one day you decide you want more control over your music, check out Jaikoz, another fantastic product by the same author.

How does licensing work? Is it five for $15 in the Mac store and one copy for this offer? Or is it unlimited? Please explain.

Thanks,. Paul
