Definitely not abandonware - we are a bit later getting the new version out than I would've liked, because we've been working on some new stuff which I hope will be worth the wait.  We should also be announcing some extremely cool stuff in the next three months, but I can't say anything about that just yet...

EDIT: wonder how long it's been available? MusicIP Mixer 1.7 still reports no updates available, yet the website reports the current version as 1.8. Oh well...

1.8 was "officially" released on the 18th, just before I left for vacation - the auto-updates will get turned on next week.  There's usually a week or so delay on the auto-updates, which spreads out how many people are updating at once.   I'll also update the blog after vacation.

No clue on the icon, though - which version of Windows is this on?


If you need a few more MusicIP licenses for some "extra" winners, let me know, and I'll be happy to take care of it.

I couldn't find any way to say mine was more accurate. OR convince MusicIP that its data was incorrect.

This should be improved, for sure - as it turns out, the way to give the feedback is to select the bogus items, and press the Delete key.  You'll get a popup where you can choose what feedback to send.

Pretty much.  The "find duplicates" feature won't work unless they've been fingerprinted, but that's about it.  And of course tag fixing, but if the tags are already correct you don't care about that.

The fast initial pass is based on metadata - we have mountains of metadata correlated with acoustics, so we can usually get pretty close based on just that.  The slower pass is to verify the metadata isn't lying (so if you've got a song which is completely mistagged, the acoustics originally assigned will be wrong, but fixed in the slower pass).  The full process is a bit more complicated to explain, involving SHA-1's, acoustic fingerprints, and acoustic profiling.  (It's detailed somewhat in the FAQ.)

If you look under our "Best of the Blog" section, you'll see a section titled "Other Topics" - this covers some of the more advanced features which show up under the premium version.

This behaviour is changing in version 1.8 (now in beta), because you aren't the only person with this question.  If only one track is selected, the whole list will transfer to the Now Playlist list, with the position set at the selected track.

For now, in 1.7, if you have any songs selected when you press play, only those songs will be played.  So, you can either select the entire playlist, or select none of the playlist, and press play, to get the entire playlist.  As a shortcut, just double-click on an album (or anything else), and it will start playing.

Album art is coming from either embedded images, or folder images.  Typically if you are seeing wrong cover art you didn't expect, it means you don't have folder images set up like we expect - you can disable folder images from the preferences. (There's also the issue of whether you want playing artwork, or select artwork, as justice mentioned).

Prev/Next buttons only affect the position in the "Now Playing" list, depending on where you are currently in that list.

You can also use drag and drop to the Now Playing list to put things in the queue.

Hope that helps!
