Media Monkey update

Well, I've been monkeying around with Media Monkey on and off for the past couple of weeks. Overall I'd say it's not bad. It's got an automatic fade in/out for songs that may bug some people but that I kind of like. The one criticism that I've got is that it's a bit clunky when you rip a CD. It doesn't do an automatic online check to get the album info, then offers to rip the tracks as unknown artist/unknown name, which is a pain in the ass. So then you have to cancel the rip process, tell it to go and grab the track info from the internet, and then do the ripping. But once you do that, you're good to go.

On the other hand, I've had fun listening ot David Bowie and TV on the Radio while working/playing the past few days. So that's all good. And it synchs just fine with the Sansa Clip, and free, so it's a keeper methinks. So for that vast portion of our vast imaginary audience that uses Sansa Clip MP3 players can interface with their computers in peace once more.
