We are pleased to announce the release of SongKong 9.2 Brutalism
This release now better handles when an album consists of both HD and non HD tracks, if you have the Add [HD] to album title for High Definition albums option enabled it will now added [MIXED] for all tracks so the album name is consistent instead of adding [HD] to the Hd tracks and nothing to the non Hd tracks. This ensures the album name is consistent for the whole album, this is important for music playback and if you rename your tracks based on metadata to ensure the album is not split.
This release also makes some improvements to Delete Duplicates, the Same song and album (metadata only) option was not taking tracknos into account so if an album had multiple versions of the same song then they could inadvertently be marked as duplicates when not.
Before this releases the Song is a duplicate if has same options that use Sounds the Same require the songs to already have an Acoustid Fingerprint. But this needs to be done when run Fix Songs, and unless the Force Acoustic fingerprints even if already matched option was enabled it was not done automatically for all songs.
Now in new version Delete Duplicates will create an acoustid fingerprint as required if found to be missing. But this is only used for Delete Duplicates, it is not saved to the file so if want to use Sounds the Same it is still more efficient to create them when run Fix Songs
Monitor Watch Folder
