Th\is is a copy of the email I sent yesterday, 07/19/20:
Following my SongKong Pro purchase today (7/19/20), I received the attached two (2) emails. After checking them and clicking on any links, I can not locate a number that will change my Lite version to a paid version. No other emails have been received (Junk/Spam) or otherwise.
I did check your forum, but found nothing that would suggest how, when, or in what manner a License Number would be forwarded.
BTW, I’m the “Mrmb” (https://community.roonlabs.com/u/Mrmb) that initiated the following Roon post: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/best-practice-duplicate-finding-deleting-flac-library-10tb/112557
You advice on the Roon forum helped lead to my purchase. But the results of testing the Lite version with my folders absolutely cinched the deal!
Although my Roon thread involved duplicate removal, after seeing the metadata results from SongKong, I purchased it primarily for that purpose.
I spent several hours testing various SongKong configurations. You’ve managed to develop a program that removes much of the time consuming and painstaking labor involved in dealing with the meta-data in any music library, especially one that is in the multiple terabyte range. That isn’t to say that a couple of minutes and a few clicks, is all that is necessary to obtain tagging results that are completely satisfactory for ones personal needs and the configuration and condition of their music folder(s). However, given the complexity of the subject and the mindbogglingly number of variables involved, spending time testing and adjusting repeatedly, is completely warranted and expected – I.e. one must spend time to create a personal learning curve. SongKong’s outstanding results far EXCEED the learning time spent however!
Your tutorials, comments on various Roon threads and in the Jthink forum helped.
I do have a couple very minor recommendations:
After I discovered it, the Help.pdf is superb. However, I spent quite some searching, before finding it. That is, I looked for something labeled a “Users Manual” or “Instructions” on your website (& under a Support tab), plus I searched the Web and your forum to no avail. You may consider calling the Help.pdf a Users/Instruction Manual as well as considering it a Help add-on to the program itself. Placing a Users &/or Instruction Manual more prominently on your main Jthink/SongKong website and on your Forum as for example a Sticky/Read This First/User/Instruction Manual would have eliminated my time spent searching and head scratching.
If Chrome is already Open, a SongKong Report doesn’t pop-up. Plus, clicking on individual Reports in the Report tab for the same reason, does nothing to output a report if Chrome is already open. I obviously learned this the hard way. Some sort of note/error message etc. about closing ones Browser to see Reports would have helped. Until I figured out the Chrome-is-Open connection, I did locate where the reports were saved on my PC and opened them there.
Lastly, there is this email’s subject of where is the License found question? Maybe I overlooked it or missed it. But a registration instruction on your download page, or a Sticky/Read-This-First post on your Forum would perhaps preclude the issue I am having…
