5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING product! 7 Jun. 2010
By J Cattermole VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This product is amazing and so easy to use, installed quickly then you're ready to start tracking stations nd build yor dream MP3 collection. Easy interface to use. You can search for or select your favourite artists and songs and add them to your 'Wish List' and sit back and watch your collection build. It tracks soething like 30.000 stations from all over the world and ifthey play one of your artists or a specific song you have 'wished' it adds it to your collection, you can then transfer these songs to your itunes or various playlists for CDs and burn them.

Excellent product, within 15 minutes I had 30 new songs to add to my colletion, it just collects them all the time it's running if you choose. You can delete ones you dont want or need, absolute perfect product!

Highly recommended for all music fans, so much fun discovering new artists and songs, best product, and so cheap, well worth the money!

4.0 out of 5 stars Never Look A Gift Horse In The Mouth 24 July 2010
By Ben Saunders VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What this program does, essentially, is bring home taping off the radio into the 21st century. Once installed on your computer, it allows you to create a wishlist of the music you want (either artists or specific songs) then it scans a large number of online radio stations to detect matching songs being played and downloads copies to your computer. A good way, it seems, to build up a large music collection for free, but does it live up to the promise?

First things first, installing the program proved a little tricky. It seemed that my anti-virus software (Kaspersky) was interfering with it somehow and while I didn't have to turn that off completely I did have to temporarily lower the security settings to allow the installation to proceed. Even then, there still seems to be a bug that causes an error message to come up periodically when I'm starting RadioTracker, and it seems quite slow to get going. (I'm now in the habit of having it open whenever my PC is on in order to scan for new music - I assume that this is necessary, though couldn't say for sure. Thankfully it doesn't seem to slow my PC's performance.)

Once you have the program open, it's a bit bewildering. There are lots of buttons and no clear indication of what everything is. I don't suppose I've discovered all the functions or options, but to be honest I don't care that much - I have the program working in a way that (mostly) suits me. The first thing to do, I think, is click on the 'wishlist' tab and add some artists/songs that you want.

I mostly like some pretty obscure stuff and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could queue artists such as Funker Vogt, Combichrist and Apoptygma Berzerk (and I've even had some luck getting music from some of these).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased and surprised 31 May 2010
By BruceB VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I approached this product with a fair degree of scepticism.

However, it worked straight out of the box, which surprised me. It was simple to install and all I needed/wanted to do was to ask the software to find music that I would not necessarily wish to buy, but wanted to hear in full.

I told it not to link with iTunes, or to manage my existing music collection.

Once I gave it some names to search for, off it went like a demented bloodhound. After two days I had over 90 tracks that had been found. The software tells the user whether anything is missing off the front or back of the recording - obviously DJs tend to butt in. Even when a track has been found, the software keeps trying to find a better version - one with less clipping. I have not found the clipping to be a problem, just 2-3 seconds at the start and the same at the end of some tracks. Other tracks are complete with no clipping.

This software depends on the music being broadcast somewhere when it is searching, so it is not necessarily an immediate process, but so far, it has not failed to find what I wanted. Where I just typed in a name - Brad Paisley - it found a host of songs and brought them to my PC. I'm now a fan based on that!

I thought the problem would be in adding to my iTunes library tracks that had been grabbed, but nothing could be simpler.

The software has no adverse effect on my PC - never slowing it down - and I can't find a single thing to fault it on [and believe me, I'm picky].

The only thing I can think of to say against it is not a problem of the software itself. If you want some music that is obscure and thus doesn't get played, then the software can't find it. Type in "Piltdown Men" and there is zilch. However I have the original vinyl 45 of "McDonald's Cave"/"Brontosaurus Stomp", so it doesn't matter a heap.

I don't often say this about software, but I think it is brilliant.

3.0 out of 5 stars A stored personal radio station 28 July 2010
By A Smile and a Wave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Unlike some of the other reviewers here the installation of RadioTracker wasn't too much bother in my case, although I have had some problems in using it since. Getting it set up to do what I wanted was the trickiest bit due to the number of options, but it worked ok in the end.
However, I'd hoped for more complete recordings straight away rather than the clipped recordings I seemed to end up with, and overall I found that Radiotracker didn't suit what I wanted, but if you're just after the equivalent of a stored radio station which only plays music you'll enjoy then this is almost perfect - just don't expect the same sort of experience you'd get from playing a real record collection.
