I search for individual songs with the free program Everything which catalogues six large disks in less than five minutes, and finds songs in less than one second, and Folder Scout to find artist folders. I have tried this Giveaway before incidentally!

After trying unsuccessfully to install this program the last time it was on GOTD, I tried three times this time round. Nice idea, but for reasons I don't have time to investigate, it didn't work.

Thanks though,

I installed this on my PC and after loading all my mp3's I wondered exactly why I had bothered. What exactly does this software do for me?
I will continue to use Deejaysystem mk1 for my music requirements.
I have of course now uninstalled AllMySongs.

I would like the ability to go to the file directory for the track. I am trying to reconcile a track and do not want to constantly do a manual search for the file.

AllMySongs Database is IMHO a somewhat high impact, low return Visual Basic app, that ties into .NET, & lacks features like downloading info based on a scanned CD case/insert bar code. Plugging "music catalog software" into Google gets 79 mill+ results, "music database software" = almost 49 mill, & "music database freeware" 5 mill+ -- IOW there's little reason not to be choosy when it comes to software you might be spending a lot of time with. Or you might take advantage of a private, on-line storage locker [mp3tunes.com], where you store a copy [or partial copy] of your collection that you can access with any connected device, anywhere, maybe taking away the need to have everything on your hard drive(s) along with the database / cataloging software to keep track of it?

Installation adds the program's folder [60 files, 10 folders @ ~5 MB], "1.bmp" to the C: drive [root folder], *maybe* 10 VB-related files to Windows system folder [mileage may vary depending on what's already installed], 1 uninstall file in 1 folder added to C:\Windows, a setup log to C:\Windows, I counted 26 files added in multiple folders to C:\Windows\assembly [again mileage may vary depending on what's already installed], & finally Start Menu shortcuts. Registry adds recorded = 2600, changes recorded = 266. Visual Basic itself is older, VB version 5 is older still, & several of the files added to the system folder date back to the late '90s... I'd be surprised if some people didn't experience conflicts &/or problems.

Downloaded and installed on Win 7 x64. No troubles with registration and it seems to run fine. I used it to download artist photos and album covers. It takes a second or two per song so if you have one of those "99 Most..." collections you may be waiting a bit for it to finish. Noticed a few songs were skipped but I think that's more a problem the database than AllMySongs as future attempts to download the covers that were missed didn't work. It would be nice to have a batch download where we select what info we want and it would download the requested info for all songs in our database while we did something else.

It seems well put together for mouse usage but I'd like to see keyboard shortcuts (i.e. Ctrl-A to select/deselect all songs). I also found it annoying that I'd have to repeat this step if I wanted to download additional info as it would reset on its own.

I see that we can sort by album, artist, year, aka the common song finding searches, but unless I'm missing it I don't see any custom entries. This can be problematic if you backup your mp3s to disc as it won't tell you which disc to find a song you're looking for. I think this is the killer for me because I'm forced to keep all my songs (literally) on the hard drive in order to find them. If there is a way around this issue I'd like to know about it. Perhaps I missed a feature somewhere.

I installed the program with no problems, and it seems to work reasonably well. The thing I like the least about it is the interface. It looks like a program you might have expected to run on Windows 3.1, instead of a program from 2010.

#1 It does not compare, its not focused on playing, but its a database for organizing music collections, with having an overview being in the foreground. Read info, see screenshot, install yourself and look through. Thats for what you get the program free in exachange, for taking the time to explore it yourself and give back an experience based objective review :) Thats what GAOT is meant for.

#3 Because you have overlooked it and just clicked "next" before you changed it (why does this comment have 15 positive points?? Says a lot again about people rating things not based on own experience and way too fast prejudgments - when will you people learn to switch on your own intelligence before judging/spreading any statements...such an attitude, to wait others judge and then just follow without any own experience is very dangerous if applied to bigger things!

Same thing in the widget for "program looks outdated"...obviously none of the posters/raters has explored the program themselves first, again. You can easily change the skin in the settings!

#7 It does support flac files, at least it does add them to the database. It just can't play them, but this program is not a player, but a database /organizer, though it does have a simple player which I would say is more a little addon to quickly play through the list, but not the purpose of the program.

This is a neat little program for organizing music collections. It does what it says and for getting a sorted overview over a big collection its great. One can edit single titles as well as batch edit all titles in an album to add / change the tag infos, download cover pics and download artist pics/bios. You can serach for artist, album name, title etc. and add columns for quick view for example for user comments. Scanning through and adding music files on the hard disc is rather quick. I agree that the GUI looks a bit "outdated" but thats only the default and you can select between several other skins under the settings. Also, the program is very easy to use and intuitive.
However, I have a few critique points too where the program could be very much improved:
1. Its a great plus (in my opinion) that it does not automatically place the created databases in the user directory in the system partition. It saves databases in its program folder. However, there is no way to specify a desired path where to save them. For example, I have a special folder, where I save all my databases from every database program. I would like to have my music database saved there too instead of having them spread over my hard disk - on one side I can organize my music files, but on the other I have now unorganized database folders.
2. Installing software with admin rights is one thing and okay. But All My Songs even requires admin rights to run the program (at least on my PC, XP Pro SP3) and that is what I don't like at all, as it discards the whole purpose of security by having separate accounts for admin work and normal usage. Having a program running with admin rights makes the whole PC vulnerable if its online at the same time. And there is no logical reason why a music database should only run with admin rights as it does not change anything on the system. This should be changed asap.
3. Adding cover pictures to albums is extremely inconvenient, especially if you have several hundreds of albums. It does not add the covers automatically on scanning (I have my covers saved in the respective albums) but you have to select every album first, then click below on the empty cover placeholder and select the cover, one by one for every album. I have several hundred albums alone in digital format (not to speak about my Audio CDs) so this would be a work for several days. Also, it does not assign internal numberings to a cover, but simply copies the existing pics in its own folder, which means, if you named all your covers simply "cover", it can only save the first one, you'll need to rename every single cover pic first with a unique name. (Comparing with Music Collector, it does automatically catch the cover pics in the music folders and adds them when scanning music files, assigning a unique number to each cover pic.)
4. If you batch edit all titles in an album (check them all first, then right click, "mass edit" and select which info, the program pops up a small box asking "do you really want to edit..." which I find very annoying. If I select and right click to edit, of course I want to edit or I wouldn't have selected this action, no need to ask back and cause another step of having to click OK first. This box should be removed as its of no use. Even if I change my mind and don't want to edit, I can simply click "cancel".
5. Not too important for me, but maybe for others: support for other languages is meant good, but only if the translation is correct. At least the German translation is horrible, partially wrong and partially not translated at all. I prefer to use the English original, but for people who don't understand English, the translations are pretty obsolete - better having none at all than having such quirky ones.

If the developer could improve these points,this would be a great program. It does have potential. Its a keeper though and thank you to GAOT and Fotis Software.

Last time I tried this, the program did a lot of things "automatically".

I depend heavily on my mp3-tags. When I tried to use this program last time, I selected "update" and that is just what the program did. It "updated" all the selected files (2 albums), and told me this was 5 different albums by 3 different artists. No option to "update or discard changes". Is this improved in this version?

My personal preference regarding mp3s:
Gracenote for updating tags (through Winamp (free), www.winamp.com the only player I have found that gives me CONTROL of my +100' songs). Select files, select "update tags", and see WHAT changes the program suggests to your mp3s. You know what album you are trying to tag, and if gracenote does not agree with you about what album you are working on, just dont press the update-button.

Mp3tag (free) (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/) for file-renaming, adding covers (covers added IN the file, not just in the album folder), batch-renaming of album/artist/genre/whatever.

My way of working: I open the ripped CD in Winamp and update the tags from the net (gracenote), if gracenote agrees with me on what CD I am working on. This gives me additional information about album/album artist etc.

Then I use MP3tag to correct the filename, to add comments, to add cover etc.

Then I put the album on my music-disk, organized in folders from A to Z, with each artist/band having its own folder, and each of their CD's having their own folder sorted by year and title.

Then I just add the new folder(s) in Winamps database, and my whole music collection is searchable and sortable by year/album/artist/genre/comments/rating/whatever.

The only thing this giveaway has that my system does not have is lyrics, but there are Winamp-plugins that handle this (I really don't care, I sing along based on what I THINK the song is about, and dare anyone to complain). The artist biography is automatically available if Winamp is connected to the net (not downloadable, but there are probably plugins for that as well)

So, I'll pass on this one, bearing in mind the recent spotify-error where all users own files were AUTOMATICALLY updated and retagged. To little control, having spent way to much time arranging my music to have it "automatically" readjusted.

Installed OK on Windows 7 but after adding files to it's database, it crashed. It restarted OK and seems to run fine. However, the only reason I installed this was to update my album info and download album covers. I tried it with at least 10 songs and it only found one album cover. It wouldn't find well known artists, like Billy Idol, Britney Spears.... Is there a way to update what database it checks for album art??

This program says that it requires reboot after download but I was able to use it and register it w/out reboot.

The app did not discriminate my music from my movies. I found the interface complicated compared to similar apps.

Either this company doesn't know there are MANY freeware apps that does the same and more or they are counting on people not knowing about the freeware options. Just to name a few:
- MediaMonkey
- Jangle (formerly Teen Spirit)
- aTunes

This sounded like a useful program, but it kept coming up with a mapping error whenever I tried to launch it and there doesn't seem to be a way to fix it. So I've uninstalled and can only give it a fat zero rating.

If someone were to purchase this software later, what is the upgrade policy for major and minor versions? Is it only one year of upgrades?

I've installed this and I really like the idea of multiple databases. My question is, is there a way to create a database using a non local drive like a mapped drive or network folder. I don't see a way.
