SuperSync 3.0 Released

SuperSync takes another step toward simplifying the process of managing iTunes libraries across multiple Macs, PCs, and iPods, with the release of SuperSync 3.0. Combining power with simplicity, SuperSync lets users visually compare, merge, and access their media files and playlists from anywhere. SuperSync 3.0 is a major upgrade with many new features that makes managing multiple iTunes and iPod libraries easier.

SuperSync 3.0 Adds:
- A new playlist viewer and improved playlist synchronization.

- A scheduled library rescan option to keep iTunes libraries up to date. This feature is especially helpful if multiple users are accessing a common network disk-based music library.

- Updated meta data tracking and merging. When a track's meta data (genre, album, artist, track info, rating, etc.) gets updated in one library, the updated track will be flagged so a user can update other copies of the track in other libraries.

-Improved remote library features lets multiple users update a common music library--adding or deleting files, updating meta data, and sharing playlists. Password protected access works over a LAN or WAN Internet connection.

- Improved iPod support lets users intelligently access their music, video, and playlists.

- Improved Tivo server support - allows Tivo Series 2 & 3 owners to access their music from their Tivo-enabled TV.

SuperSync 3.0 also includes a fix to enable support for accessing SuperSync network libraries from iTunes 8, improved unicode text sorting, and improved duplicate track avoidance.

How SuperSync Works:
SuperSync starts by reading in your local iTunes library. A second, remote library can then be opened, with tracks color coded by whether they are local (gray), remote (blue), or synchronized (green). A remote library can be a disk or directory of music and videos, an iPod, or another networked SuperSync library.

Once two libraries are loaded, the user selects tracks they want to copy from one library to another. Tracks are added and saved in the correct location in the user's iTunes library. Once copied to both locations, the tracks turn green marking them as synchronized. Similarly, playlists can be selected and copied from one library to another.

Tracks that have modified meta data can have their tags updated. Ratings and playcounts can also be updated, so if you mark a track as 5 stars in one library, you can also have it updated in any other library.

SuperSync makes it easy to create a main library, and have a subset on computers and laptops around the house. Any new content that you've added on one computer can be uploaded to the master library. SuperSync can help reduce the likelihood that two family members will accidentally buy the same music download.

Pricing and Availability:
This update is free to all registered users. A limited demo version is available to try most of the features for a limited number of file transfers. The full registered version is available for $29 (USD) for 2-pak, $39 USD for 5-pak, or a best value $59 (USD) 10-pak. Licenses can be used for any machine (Mac OS-X or Windows) that music is stored on. A separate license is not required for iPods or to import music from a disc or hard drive. 5- and 10-pak licenses can be split among two or more people to keep the cost-per-license down.
