    Windows users have been left out? Excuse me? Is this year 1978?

    Virtually every audio playing software for the windows platform has built in tag functionality (or a plugin for it), not to mention a media library with built in search functionality.

    Sorry, but we don't need your sloppy osx ports.

  • @Andrew:
    Think you may misunderstand what this is. For starters, it's not a Mac port. It's built in .net. (I don't like the Mac-style interface, particularly, but that's just a skin – hopefully we'll get an option to turn that off.)

    And the whole point is, some people want this functionality independent of their audio editor / audio player. The software still has some rough patches in it – more improvements are promised – but I'm often managing projects that include different kinds of media and stuff built in different tools, in different project folders, etc. This looks like a great way to consolidate files.

    Um, year 1978 I think we were talking CMOS, not Windows, but…

  • Also MP3 tags are very different than Flickr/delicious non-hierarchical tags. I've tried to adapt many different MP3 players to use in this way with no luck.

    I've been looking for something like this for ages. Tried waiting for Chicken System's Sample Manage Tool, but that's "in development" since 2007. Their website now states "Sampler Tools", but i'm afraid that's gonna take another couple of years…

    Will try TaggedFrog in the next few days, thanks Peter!

    Check out Sample Tagger. Have some smart tools for quickly marking up sample data. Only for Windows though.

    Man, that Andrew guy who posted first certainly has some bitterness…

    The problem I have with this is it lacks the "built right into your normal folders" aspect of snapper, but also lacks the advanced editing of audiofinder… so you don't get the real benefit of either. I guess its a good way to organize yourself if you don't organize all of your files in old fashioned folder hierarchies anyway, but I know this does absolutely nothing for my workflow when I'm using windows (usually when collabing with a friend who only has windows on his computer… I use both OSes pretty regularly, but its always OSX for my own music)

  • @Mitchell: Sure thing — it's definitely not for everyone. I will say, though, as I talk to people almost no two people have the same file system workflow. That's doubly odd given that most mainstream file managers on all operating systems make a lot of the same assumptions.

    Looks nice, but I stopped waiting for the perfect file manager a year ago and just organised the old school way: folders. It's not perfect, but it works good enough.

    I'm still going to try this though.
