I still cannot get this software to run. No matter how I try to execute it, it never starts up, ans never appears in task manager or WIN Patrol either.

Downloaded and installed Ok. But I don't quite like the idea of my music files being processed online by a third party. Besides, all i need is just the integrity of the albums on my ipod nano. So, taghycardia + musicbee is my choice, cudoz to Giovanni @3

The feature that I used most is the MP3 Player, BUT . . . it is not FREE! That makes this software a pretty useless piece of junk to me.

I registered fine on one PC but on the notebook the same installation says:

"invalid registration number or key"

something is wrong.

Thank you to GOTD Team and Zortam for the updated free pro version. I have used Zortam for a few years and I enjoy it. It is the easiest of the players/taggers to use.

Careful when clicking on the altervista link towards the end of Giovanni's post. When I did so, my antivirus - Eset Nod32 - lit up like a Christmas tree and blocked that website as containing potentially harmful code.

This caution is not intended as a bash on Giovanni. I enjoy reading his posts and agree with many of his recommendations.

Well, like I said, installed and registered just fine on Win 7 64-bit. Got a 32-bit binary. Oh well.

I must mention that Scotty started yapping, Zortam Mp3 Media Studio silently adds an autorun entry on installation. This can be disabled under preferences later but it's not at all decent to do so without letting the user even know! If it wants a thumbs up it better rock my world from now on...

That's one clunky, old-skool GUI Zortam Mp3 Media Studio has. No skinning options so it will have to do I guess. It's arranged in a familiar way but no drag and drop support! Well, only for the player on the right...

There are a few bugs, for one I clicked 'Rescan Folder Tree' on the left without a folder selected and the program summarily crashed. It does also have typo's (neither > niether) but I make those too. I must add that Zortram has it's HQ on the Seychelles which is predominantly French-speaking and I'm guessing this English translation was made by an outsider (they're asking for translators). So I'll give them some benefit of the doubt about their programming skills but it certainly does need better error handling.

Scanning for the ~6500 mp3 files in my collection took about 10 minutes, not exactly fast (MusicBee did that under 3 minutes). It's all in the name today because none of my flac, ogg or wav files are in the list. The MP3 to WAV (lossy to lossless) convert option is pointless, it won't increase the quality one iota. It will only eat your disk space and as far as I'm concerned it serves no practical everyday use anymore, not even for burning CD's.

To be on the safe side I copied ~50 MP3's (Fear Factory, Jimi Hendrix, Orbital, Pearl Jam etc.) into a separate folder and rebuild the library, which was time-consuming as the entire folder tree gets rescanned and there's no option to add files manually. Then I did an Autotag on those MP3's. Some hits but mostly misses, especially on the older or lesser known ones like Marvin Gaye or Dark Moor. Not all that thrilled about their online database. For manual editing it works just fine and you can create your own filters to extract tags from file names. Again slow but it gets the job done. Some actions are counterintuitive, if a file doesn't exist anymore it still shows up in the list after restart but right-clicking does nothing, again the whole folder tree has to be rescanned. This isn't helping the workflow...

I'm not at all happy with the player, it's an awkward, outdated looking thing. Luckily you can specify your own player.

The overall impression I get from Zortam Mp3 Media Studio is like stepping into a timemachine. If this was 2002 then it would have been a fairly good program but now it just looks and feels out-dated and clunky and it's certainly not as cool as a DeLorean with a Fluxcapacitor. There's no support for more modern file types and don't forget the very intrusive autorun entry. What makes it really a miss for me is the fact that it crashed on me a few times for no real apparent reason (bug mentioned above is the only reproducible one on my system). I do have to compliment Zortam for their genuine awards and reviews on their site. But just as the program they're mostly outdated and often list XP as the highest OS.

Uninstalled with Revo Uninstaller which found a few remnants in the registry pertaining to file extension associations. Sloppy.

Thumbed down. Work out the bugs and pull the whole thing into this decade and it'll be a deal worth considering. Thanks anyway Zortam and GOTD. And have a nice day.

Doesn't tag files which haven't already been tagged. Kind of useless for me. Winamp will do that at least

I've been a long-time GAOTD fan, and have been looking for software to help me tame my MP3 library, so I gave this a try.

First, though, I downloaded the "portable" version from their website. It's not truly portable, because it installs files into other folders.

Strangely, it won't allow me to "install" it to the C: drive! It requires that the program be run from a USB drive!

When I ran the program, I noticed that the title bar is flickering a lot, and it's doing a lot of drive activity.

It is not supposed to be searching the drive, so I don't know what it's trying to do?

It's also bad programming practice to flicker the title bar like this.

So, Zortam developers, what is the program doing when it's accessing the drive? Why the flickering?

If this program is going to be using hard drive resources when it's supposed to be idle, I'm going to uninstall it!

One last thing. When I uninstalled the version downloaded from the Zortam website, uninstall said that it could not delete all of the files, and they have to be deleted manually. But it doesn't say what files must be manually deleted!

Zortam developers-- how do I find out which files have to be deleted?

Overall, this program scares me, mostly because of the drive activity...

BAD NEWS! BUGGY! Uninstalled! And Dirty Uninstall!

Zortam Mp3 Media Studio Pro 14 is a hodge-podge collection of MP3 tools & utilities. None of the tools are particularily good. I tried a MP3 conversion. Conversion output formats are very limited. Rendering speed was terrible. Sound quality was ordinary. BUT WORSE YET, I experienced some noticable bugs...that made using certain features a pain. Software performance was 'doggy'. OVERALL, I was not impressed and decided to uninstall.

Uninstallation is not clean. I used Revo Uninstaller (thank God). Revo found a lot of left-over registry entries after uninstall of Zortram. Uninstallation of Zortram left behind a dirty Windows Registry.

Zortram was installed in XP SP3 x32.

I am always suspect of a music application that says it can convert a lossy format to a lossless format, as malachz said in the above post, that Zortam MP3 Media Studio Pro could convert MP3 to WAV. Once you have ripped a CD or vinyl to MP3, the lost audio is gone forever, you cannot recover it by converting it to WAV, if anything you make an MP3 file in a larger container with less compression, with the same low audio quality.

I don't know how MP3 audio ever caught on. Lossless audio and lossy sound so incredibly different, it's like the difference between AM radio in monoraul, and FM radio with Stereo and 2 speakers sounded 20 years ago. For the price of smaller and cheaper storage media presently (even though external hard drives are getting more expensive again for some reason), lossless is the way to go, whether you want open source, or a large Corporate Brand version of lossless, I can't do MP3 with my precious music collection.

I do recommend freeware MP3Tag as spredo mentioned above for your music metadata tags. It will work with many formats, letting you edit ID3v1, ID3v2.3, ID3v2.4, iTunes MP4, WMA, Vorbis Comments and APE Tags, for music files including lossy and lossless formats, FLAC, APE, OGG, MP4, ALAC, MP3, etc.

YOU ARE SO AWESOME TO TAKE THE TIME TO FIND THESE ALTERNATIVE FREEWARE APPS AND THEN SHARE THEM WITH US! It really takes some time and effort to do this and you should be commended for this!

I have been collecting PORTABLE apps for some years now and I have also created them, as well, from full installs and I never install anything because it weighs down your PC when you do, and it also messes up your registry and it fills up your hard drive with useless excess code when you uninstall it, because you just don't know who that Programmer is and how they code. I am a Software Engineer, so I KNOW what is capable when coding. SO, THOSE OF YOU WHO LOVE FREEBIES, BEWARE AND BE SURE THAT YOU KNOW THE CREDIBILITY AND EXPERTISE OF THE WEBSITE AND/OR PROGRAMMER CODING THAT SOFTWARE.

I had problems with the ID Tag editor in V.13, previously offered here. It batch messed up the titles of a few thousand mp3's. I don't know if it was the fault of the program or the program's unclear directions. Fortunately I had backups of all but about 100. I had to go back and manually fix the titles of the others.

Have used Zortam for many years now to manage all of my .mp3 files (10's of thousands of 'em). Mostly to hunt down dups and mass tagging/renaming. Never used the player. The first thing I did was make WinAmp the default player only because that's my .mp3 player of choice - period.
Yes, it's still a bit clanky and yes, there may be freewares out there that does some or all but given that GOTD is making this free today, it's freeware today as well. I'll stick with Zortam because it works well for me, has from day one and I'm sure it will continue to.
I second the 'portable version' idea so I can add it to some storage drives and work on them anywhere.

Thanks to both GOTD and Zortam for the update to this program.

A good free auto-tagger for mp3 files is Musicbrainz Picard, from www.musicbrainz.org .

That site also references two other products designed to work with the Musicbrainz database. One of those products, Jaikoz Tagger, isn't free. The other one, Magic MP3 Tagger, comes in both free and paid versions, but the only limitation in the free edition is the number of files that can be tagged at one time. I haven't tried it yet but I intend to.

Does the volume normalisation allow you to compress the dynamic range of mp3s (ie less difference between quiet and loud passages) for use in cars or other noisy environments or does it just set the maximum volume?

I appreciate the idea of this is to allow you to run the software foc but I don't like installing and uninstalling too many programmes.

Thank you to the Zortam team and GOTD for this program. I got to do some more testing and checking out what this little gem can do. Adding album covers and lyrics for all the songs is great. I am starting to like this even thought it did not do what I expected it to do originally. For 4000 songs it is registering 13 hours to add lyrics, album covers and do the changes I requested. I'll just let it run over night.

1. Should be two giveaways, it's TWO PRODUCTS! Zortam Mp3 Player 1.50 and Zortam Mp3 Studio ( zPlayer.exe | zmmspro.exe )

Set your date to 2013 this program becomes very crippled as today's Registeration Name and Registration key is an INVALID KEY for registering the player (zPlayer.exe)
Buy Zortam Mp3 Player for $14.95

The good news is you can change the default mp3 player binary to vlc or something in options..

2. Zortam Mp3 Player 1.50 - Starts very slow for being the default player to with with the studio.
3. Zortam Mp3 Player 1.50 - has text going off the main form
4. Zortam Mp3 Player 1.50 - has pop-up buttons at top (A, Smiley, Arrow, Magnify Glass, four lines, green star, FX box, Resize Box, and Gears. All of these cute buttons have no text labels, no balloon help.
5. Zortam Mp3 Studio - Menu (File | View | ID3 Tagging | Search Mp3 Library | Normalize Volume | Tools | Help | Buy Zortam Mp3 Media Studio Pro) on dual monitor pops-up on opposite screen.
6. Zortam Mp3 Studio Menu Resource Texts are too long and horribly laid out. All that is needed is (File | View | Tools | Help) Stick ID3 Tagging, Search, and NOrmalize under Tools, Stick Buy Zortan under "Help"
7. Zortam Mp3 Studio Pop-Up form "Synchronize ID3 Tags" Dunno where it came from out of the blue and into myface. While I know what Synchronize means, I am clueless as to what Synch ID3 Tags means, will this be modifying files on my system without input? It's a crapshoot.... I hit "Cancel" hope it stops. ;o)
8. Zortam Mp3 Studio Toolbar, Search Amazon? CLICK... No data found. Can't customize icons on toolbar.
Possible Solution: add ability to customize the TOOLBAR icons, duh..
9. Zortam Mp3 Studio FIRST RUN | Search "ALL DRIVES" for Mp3 files. If I would allowed that, You wouldn't see me comment here for 24 hours. I have a LOT of files.
Possible Solution: ship your product with a default .zor and small sample .mp3 like WINAMP does.
10. Zortam Mp3 Studio - No Drag and Drop to Adobe After Effects, or Sony Vegas

Stay frosty now ...

Hi from Zortam Team,

Today you could experience slow auto tag batch processing, because a lot of GOTD users are auto tagging their files at the same time.
So database is little bit slower then usually.

So you can auto tag files at any time if database is too busy today.

Thank you for understanding.

Main difference is that PRO version has all options available after registering

Free version after 3 days can not use some function such as normalize, auto tag files etc.

Regarding Zortam Mp3 Player it comes free for Zortam Mp3 Media Studio free and PRO version.

But if you want to purchase only Zortam Mp3 Player you need to pay for license.

Downloaded and registered fine on Win 7 64-bit.

Haven't tested it though, got some appointments in a few minutes. I'll see what I can do tonight although I don't think this will replace MusicBee.

@malachz and everyone else who's curious, here's an overview of differences between the free and pro versions.

Oh, and there are more typo's all over the place, like they also have a manger for Android LOL! Proofread, people, proofread.

Loaded and registered quickly in Win8 x64. I tried 5 tracks and it worked perfectly. Put all the information in the correct areas. I was thrilled. I then did the 600 plus songs out of 4,000 that needed revisions. What a mistake. Much of the information is in the wrong categories. I thought it would pull the correct information from the files title and put it where it belonged. What it did was put the information in the categories in the order that it was in the title. Worst of all there is no UNDO button. I now have 100's of incorrect titles and artists. Some titles were 05 - Billy Joel - Album title - Song name. Others were Billy Joel - Album title - track # - Song Name. All of the first thing listed were put as the Artist then the second thing was the title and so on. In this example 05 was the Artist and Billy Joel was the Title. The next one Billy Joel was the Artist and Album title was correct. I thought this program was intelligent enough to sort out what was an Artist from a track number from a song title. So disappointed with my rushing to use this program after a very short check. I can't comment on anyother function. This was all I wanted from the program. I hope I can back track my computer to yesterday without losing yesterdays GOTD. Bummer.

Seemed like a good idea.

No FLAC-support.

Both the free mp3TAG and the previously given away mp3tag Express has support for updating tags on FLAC-files.

When my music collection is 50% FLAC and 50% mp3, I'll stick to the programs that handle both.

Today's giveaway is a very good program for organizing your music files in the MP3 format.
Unlike similar tools given away here in the past, this software is not just a tag editor but also an iPod Organizer and track volume normalizer, a converter, a cover finder and auto tagger.
So if you are a music nut and din't install ASHAMPOO MUSIC STUDIO, given away here a few days ago, just grab it, try it for a while and enjoy!

My personal advice? Well, well, well.....

* (Portable) Music Collection + (Portable) Taghycardia

* (Portable) MusicBee

* (Portable) MediaMonkey

* iTunes (==> Softpedia Editor Pick) + iTurns Pro + iTunes Cleanup + MeloDroid (for Android users only)

To search, listen and record any kind of MP3, according to the song name, artist or music genre, from all over the Net literally with a mouse click:


Oh yes...everything damn FREE and always updatable!!

My 2 cents....

downloaded fast from gotd servers, installation fast, registration successful using key from installer zip.

zortam mp3 media studio 14 program loads fast.

a quick survey of functions reveal the ability to edit mp3 song properties such as song title, album, track number, genre, load front and back covers, create lyric books in html format, etc.

clicking about program reveals that zortam mp3 music studio 14 is actually FREE to for personal use.

clicking about program unfortunately reveals a typographical error:
"special thanks to all who CONTRIBUTET to zortam..."

surfing to developer website, http://www.zortam.com/index.php, reveals that zortam mp3 music studio 14 PORTABLE edition is also offered FREE.

zortam also has a built-in music player with visualization.
as far as i can tell:
1. the music player has no option of "always on top"
2. no option of adding songs to currently played but has option to add songs to album.
3. it can rip from cd.
4. it has function to convert mp3 to wav.
5. it has volume normalization.
6. the menu "buy zortam..." does not disappear even after successful registration.

verdict: quite good but needs improvement.

zortam mp3 player has a separate license.
user needs to purchase a license for the zortam music player after trial period.
zortam music player has an option of always on top.

to the developer:
what is the main difference between the free and paid (registered) versions of zortam mp3 music studio 14?
