If you add FLAC support I'll buy a Lifetime license!!! =)
Most of my music collection is in FLAC format, and I ever dreamt a tool like TuneUp!
It would be wonderful...30$ for a lifetime license is a magic!
Thank you for writing in.
I've forwarded your suggestion on adding FLAC file format on to our development team. We are always looking for ways to improve our software.Regards,TuneUp Support
FLAC and MediaMonkey please.
I also got a huge flac collection and most of the time the metadata are missing... would be a great improvement to have flac and/or other lossless format ! more and more peole are using it every day
If you add flac support I will buy a lifetime licence on the spot no questions asked
I'll toss in as well that FLAC support would be greatly helpful.
same problem 40% of my collection is FLAC witch is one of the best audio type's. sadly. tuneup and itunes dont suport the file type. witch meens i have to search for a good converter to convert the FLAC in a outher file type witch is just as good. i think itunes uses ACC instead of FLAC. i wonder if tuneup suports ACC. if so i only need to finde a good converter.
YES......FLAC Support PLEASE......I would of never purchased this software if I didn't know it didn't support FLAC....Im with these guys.......Over half my library is FLAC.......Guess I should of did more reading before I purchased......)-: I mean yea Itunes doesn't support flac but media player does.........
"If you add flac support I will buy a lifetime licence on the spot no questions asked"
I would think that support for FLAC would be high on you list of to do's -- There are a lot of us using FLAC - all the ripped CDs are FLAC only !
Please move on Flac support.
Yes, please. I bought the lifetime license, but I'll have to convert half of my music from FLAC to use it on them. FLAC support would take tuneup from a kind-of useful application to a really useful application.
Hey, want flac support too!
Any news on this ?
We hear your suggestions to add support for FLAC. Unfortunately, at this time we do not intend on extending support for this format.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Best Regards,TuneUp Media Support
While that is disappointing to hear could we have an explanation of why this much sought after feature will not be taken up - and that being the case could you recommend a conversion method/tool.
While there are a number of people on this forum and in various support tickets who request the ability to use TuneUp with FLAC files, the demand is still not high enough for us to devote the resources to extend support for this format.
I absolutely agree that FLAC support would be a great addition to TuneUp. Unfortunately, we have other priorities right now that demand our attention.
Hello Ryan. I hear your explanation, that the development team is working on higher priority items right now, and that there's still not enough demand to move this up the list.
I'd like to do my part to add one more vote for FLAC support. I have a large collection of music in FLAC format and I also will buy a lifetime subscription to TuneUp if FLAC support is added.
one more vote for this feature
No FLAC, no buy. Simple as that.
Please add FLAC support. Its mostly useless to me without it.
Again, please add FLAC support, this is a crucial feature to any user that is trying to build a music library so that tagging can be accomplished with a lossless copy of the media.
Another vote for FLAC. I hope you'll reconsider working on FLAC support. I believe a great many of the people who actually take the time to clean up and organize their large music libraries are the same people who actively seek out superior quality files such as FLAC. People who don't really care about the sound quality of their files are also less likely to be a worried about precise tagging and organization for their music libraries. Most of the people I know who would actively seek out and pay for a quality music organizer are also the same people who seek out quality (lossless) files. Thanks for reading.
Forget this, looks like MusicBrainz Picard is the only way to go for serious music collections.
Just went through the hassle of creating an account just to let you know that FLAC is essential before I'd buy this program.
Since flac is only a container adding support for this should not be something hard to-do. Especially since echonest is also supports it. and as far as i know tune-up is using the db from echonest. :S
In order to import FLAC to iTunes, we will need to convert FLAC to Apple friendly audio formats. If you care the quality of the output audio, converting FLAC to Apple Lossless audio is recommended. You can visit this guide for converting FLAC to Apple Lossless at http://
Add me to the list of those who want FLAC. I'd happily buy this product if it offered FLAC. I'm finding that I've outgrown iTunes and its restrictive file support and I've been ripping my CD collection to FLAC to stream from a NAS setup. With a serious collection and a high end audio system FLAC is the way to go - I will not go down the path of Apples lossless format since it is proprietary to them.
Tune Up looks to be a great set of serious tools but to exclude FLAC is shortsighted in my opinion. Please feel free to contact me if this ever changes.
I also vote for FLAC support.
Why will you not support FLAC? I bought this product awhile back thinking there is "no way" that FLAC support would not eventually be added. Are you guys kidding? not important enough?? Anyone who is a music buff and cares about general hi-res storage of their music rips to FLAC. And not itunes for quality playback. itunes is used for managing an additional lossy mp3 copy syncing to devices. You say there is not enough demand- whomever is running this "poll" is sorely short sighted. For every post here asking for the feature, you can estimate there are 50 people who want the fearture but did not take the time or effort to post. Your music engine supports FLAC, and I simply cannot believe it is any monumental development effort to add the format support. You'd increase the appeal of your product 10 fold especially to the hig-end audiophile crowd (a whole new avenue of marketing for you).
Add me to the list who needs flac! thx...
This cannot work. iTunes does not support FLAC, and as WMP doesnt include native FLAC support(without the installation of codecs) there is not much TuneUP can do without supporting another media player(Mediamonkey!)
Having said that, i would love FLAC support in the future, along with mediamonkey support
How about converting from FLAC To apple lossless then doing the work with tuneup then converting from Apple lossless back to FLAC?
I've been using Jaikoz (http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz) on my FLAC library. Cheaper than TuneUp and does a great job. I'd recommend it.
thanks will have a look, :)
I know it's a pain but having experimented a bit, I still the easiest work around is to losslessly convert from FLAC to ALAC via XLD on my mac, then import into itunes, then do the work with tuneup then convert back again to flac using XLD, still lossless, doesn't take long and you get neatly organised and tagged FLAC files :)
i use Pure Music software to be able to natively play FLAC files using ITunes as a shell. What I wonder is why TuneUP won't take the 100kb files that are in iTunes 11, as placeholders by Pure Music, and clean them when they have some metadata on them. All I get is an an error saying the file can't be found.
Another vote for FLAC and ready to buy full life time
I tried to convert flac to wma lossless and then import the songs to tune-up.
This failed, so tune-up can't handle wma either though the manuals says so.......
Today i tried to convert flac to m4a this worked out. Then I imported the m4a into Itunes and ran tune-up This all worked out great the albums where recognized and songs fixed.Then I converted the files back to flac and lost the album art. So converting back and forward is not a option. :(
