millions of songs.  When you have your music in MoodLogic and use
DeviceLink, you will be able to take advantage of this database and
handle songs and playlists with unprecedented ease.  DeviceLink even
generates and labels playlists for you automatically (think “Mellow R&B”
or “Upbeat Dance”) and transfers them to your iPod. All with a few
clicks!

Find out why MoodLogic is the perfect match for the iPod.  You have the
world’s best MP3 player; get the best music organizer and transfer

The “More Info” link is broken.  Try [url=http://www.moodlogic.com]http://www.moodlogic.com[/url] for more info.  Program looks great at first glance!

Actually, I just finished trying it out, and I have to recant my previous statement.  The program does not look great at first glance.  It is heavily dependent on what seems to be a very invasive subscription service.

The “free trial” program will first find your music files, and then it spends about 3-5 minutes “activating” about 100 of your songs.  This activation process is crucial - only activated files are eligible for the program’s features.  You have to spend more money for “song credits” if you want more than the allotted number activated.

Before using any of the program’s touted features, including automatic file renaming and auto playlisting, you have to pay at least $29.99.  And then, you can only use their features on your “activated music” if you are connected to the internet.

Also, it seems that only certain songs are in their database (naturally), and presumably this database is what allows for automatic file tagging and other features to work.  Of the songs that were selected for activation in my trial version, more than half of them did not have automatic information available for them.

Although it looks as though the program’s advertised features might be nice, I am unwilling to spend the $30 to give it a real try.  Musicmatch’s SuperTagging feature, flawed though it is, will be my auto-tagger of choice for now.

If anyone does subscribe, please let us know your results.

I have used Moodlogic for about 6 months, and I find it very usefull.  It does have a few bugs.  I have about 1375 ripped CD songs, and Moodlogic has “activated” 98% of them.  I have a fairly broad variety of music, from Beethoven. to Hank Williams, to The White Stripes.  The “activation” percentage has gone up dramatically over the time I have subscribed, particularly in the past couple of months.  I recently bought the new iPOD and transferred all my music to it using Moodlogic’s Devicelink.

I have used the devicelink trial.  For one thing, it’s buggy as hell.  the other thing is it’s pretty bloody expensive (20 bucks) for something that simply loads playlists onto the ipod.  No option to add songs.  Money better spent on Xplay.

I don’t know about limitations with the trial, but I used the devicelink to transfer all of my songs to the new iPOD, not just playlists.  It worked perfectly.
