See the changes here:

Lots of new features. It seems they improved the algorigthm for mixing too. I wonder if the slow tagging problem is solved...

I wish I had some freetime to work with their developer tools. I would love to make a FARR plugin for MusicIP.  :-\

Search for music on you local computer and create playlists. Look up information about artists, albums, tracks, etc. Just about anything that it supports.

It has an interface for all of that?  I didn't know that!

Perhaps someone here knows, been looking at the help and forum but I'm still not sure.  I use a laptop and a desktop with the same music on each (I keep the music files themselves on an external drive for the laptop and synch it with the desktop every so often).  Would copying the cache file between computers keep it accurate? 

Cheers
George

So has anyone tried it? I'm still dreading waiting for all my music to be indexed again. I don't mind doing it once, but the process was so lengthy and ultimately I ditched the software - so now I really don't want to try it again unless it's much much much quicker. Lazy but honest.  :-[
Grorgy IIRC there's a setting to write the hashcodes it generates into the idtags of the music so that it doesn't have to rehash the tunes when you move it.

Thanks justice, I found that in the end, though i was a bit concerned about modifying the files.   Anyway no harm seems to have been done, and it works well for the most part, I'm noticing some GUI problems, the icons are sometimes just shadows, but it still works  ;) .

It analyzed 3700 files for me in about 6 hrs on my AMD X2 3800  with 2gb ram , which I thought was a vast improvement over the last time i tried this when it died after about 2 days and still hadnt finished  ;D

I am also impressed with its tag fixing ability, so quick and quite accurate, but it does make mistakes so it pays to be careful.

This problem seems to be related to IE7 - it goes back to MusicMixer IP 1.7. I run Maxthon 2, which is a frontend for IE and find that if I run IE7 - as in open and close it - the icons paint just fine the next time I open MMIP. Strange, and a problem that the developer has been made aware of...

It didn't have to reindex my music when I upgraded.

Its a great thing, I'm rediscovering 'lost' music, stuff i haven't listened to for years.  And i just send the mix off to my player of choice, which it has automatically found, well its found all the players, Windows mdia, jriver and foobar and just tick the box (it has an option for default player as well but the only time i used that it went to powerDVD  ;D ).  I am really glad i gave it another try.  :)  I am using it all the time whether i want just a single album or a mix made up. Its searching seems excellent.

3700 files in 6 hours? I have over 15000 (and yes, all legal - over 300 CDs and emusic membership since 2000) - I dont think I will even try

I suppose i could make it analyse a subset and add them in batches over time?

Why not just let it run at night while you are sleeping.

You can also turn STOP the Analysis if you need to do something else (which is what I had to do when it was chewing the CPU time).

Prefer unplayed songs is a great option for large lists  :up:

And i just send the mix off to my player of choice

That's something that I've been a little confused about: is it better to use a different player, or is the internal player OK?

What does everyone else do? And why???  :-\

I use the internal player - it's very good, though I wish sometimes that there were support for WinAmp plugins...

You can set the priority of the analysis engine in the program options.  I set mine to low, and didn't even notice it was running (even on my old 866mhz pc).  When I was going to be away from the computer, I would set the priority to normal.  It took a few days to get through all my music, but my computer was still usable during all that time.

I've started using the internal player now as well, and I cant tell any difference, probably like the FAQ at foobar that says all modern players will sound much the same and any difference you hear will most likely be placebo (the effect not the band ;) )
