Hi All ~
I have used SongKong with much success and for long periods in the past – and have now come back to renew my membership for another big tagging task. So my question falls into the “please-bring-me-up-to-speed” category. Almost everything I have is from Eastern Europe and therefore outside the Latin alphabet, BTW.
Are the following assumptions correct in 2023?
1 - SongKong pulls exclusively from MusicBrainz and Discogs for its metadata? I ask because I’ve been experimenting with OneTagger, which is more designed for dance music, but when I give it a task relating to media I know is in Discogs, the program just flies through the scan in less than a second and claims nothing is there.
2 - SongKong does not offer the stylistic coefficients/scores from Spotify (danceability, valence, acousticness, etc etc)? Having any generic or formal categories expressed as numerals can be extremely useful, esp when it comes to visualizing traits of v large data sets.
PS: Having SongKong trawl Bandcamp and Soundcloud, too, would be v useful for me, but maybe the counterargument is that such tags are always self-defined / self-applied and therefore inconsistent and/or often absent. If those two sources are not part of SK’s plans, maybe you could suggest a second tagger to search those platforms - separately/afterwards?
