TagComplete is an intuitive software that automatically completes music metadata by utilizing a crowd-sourced database. With an easy-to-use user interface, it guides users through three simple steps to ensure accurate recognition.
The user interface of TagComplete is intuitive and easy to use. The software guides the user through three simple steps to get started. Firstly, I was asked to select the directories in which my music files were stored. Secondly, TagComplete downloaded and updated the part of the database that was required for local title recognition. Finally, the title recognition process was performed on my local PC, and the metadata from my selected files was anonymously compared with the community database.
One of the things I appreciated during the process was having the ability to review and accept the differences found in the metadata between my local files and the community database. This gave me a sense of control over the process, as well as an opportunity to learn more about the music in my collection.
TagComplete also includes Tageditor, a feature that is already known from Mediapurge. As someone who values organization, I found Tageditor to be particularly helpful.
The title recognition process is based on the key technology MAFP - Mediapurge acoustic fingerprint. This means that the software "listens" to the titles and can recognize and tag nameless titles. Additionally, the system "learns" with every user that scans their mediafiles. Therefore, the recommendation is to scan your entire inventory of mediafiles.
Privacy is a key concern with any software that uses user data. Therefore, it is worth noting that TagComplete has taken steps to address this concern. Firstly, the title recognition process happens locally, and only acoustic fingerprints and metadata are exchanged with the central database. Secondly, all data is transmitted anonymously, and no personal data is collected.
Overall, my experience using TagComplete was incredibly positive. The software was easy to use, effective, and took care of the tedious task of updating the metadata for my music files. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to save time and improve the organization of their music collection.
