[prMac.com] Snohomish, Washington - Monkey Tools today is pleased to announce the release of Library Monkey 4.0, offering a powerful set of new tools for audio asset management and processing at a new, lower price.
Users can now import their iTunes Database - including all tracks, metadata, and playlists - directly into Library Monkey. This highly useful feature provides the ability to retain important information created in iTunes, while delivering the powerful management tools that are available only in Library Monkey. "For those who are frustrated trying to use iTunes as their asset-management tool for production, we now offer a solid alternative," says Drayson Nowlan, General Manager at Monkey Tools. "Library Monkey goes beyond iTunes and features the powerful and efficient tools our customers have valued for many years."
Also new to version 4.0 is the ability to easily prune missing files and remove any asset from any library. This solves the problem of managing information when working with continually changing libraries. What's more, artwork in media files is now loaded as needed, instead of being loaded during import. As a result of this and other database structural enhancements, the performance of Library Monkey has significantly increased. We have also added "Soundminer to file" and "iTunes Library to file" metadata mappings and improved the LAME Codec user interface to better communicate the methodology of the encoder. This version contains other enhancements that deliver greater stability and efficiency.
Library Monkey 4.0 is now offered at $129, $70 less than the previous version. "During these challenging times, many people must do more with less and find themselves with limited budgets for new software solutions. Library Monkey 4.0 is our answer to that need," says Nowlan.
Featuring the incredible ease of use of Monkey Tools' efficient and stable processing, and the ability to manage large number of assets in many formats, Library Monkey is the best way for both audio professional and hobbyists to limit mundane processing tasks and unleash their creativity.
