Sorry I played around to figure out. Just choose the folder with the songs, highlight all and right click. Then choose properties then go under the visual artwork tab then add

Just as Levanter said:

 

1. Select all the files you want to tag (e.g. all tracks on the album)

 

2. Right click and select "Properties" at the bottom of the pop-up menu. You'll see this:

 

3. Click on the artwork tab up the top and then you can press the add button to select the file

 

You can also use the Auto-Tag function to automatically grab details (incl. artwork from) Amazon sites. I prefer the Discogs Auto-tagging though which you cal download from the MediaMonkey website's add-ons section.

Thanks a lot for that. Are you able to set that discogs tagging system up to only take artwork under 500x500px?

Quick question.. say I have an album on there but there's no album art, how do I get the album art to show on the AK100? Where do I place the image file?

 

Gorgeous, well done man...

 

On the other hand I have a slight thought about EQ since someone mentioned it. I am curious if the AK100 runs with the pro EQ by default even though we turn the EQ settings off. I say this because when I switch to user EQ and have the frequency bands flat, the sound becomes smaller. Then I switched back to pro EQ (obviously the sound changes back) and turned the EQ off but if I remember correctly the sound was pretty much the same as in pro EQ mode... Just a reminder that I only tried this once and that was quite some time ago, also I don't have anything against EQ. Just my curiosity knocking in my head :rolleyes:

Gosh Matthew, that's much better than the lame phone pics I sent you before selling! I'm already feeling some seller remorse!

Trust mediamonkey has fixed the artwork. Seems other's advice follows what I thought was happening. It's sweet when the artwork shows in the background and scrolling. Enjoy!

Thanks mate! Yeah I got artwork to work.. all good now. So bloody slow going through ALL of my music library searching google for the artwork and manually updating one-by-one. I spent a couple hours doing it and only got to "C" lol. I'll have to try find a more automatic way.

I think what you're hearing is the gain drop when you switch on the User EQ. It drops the gain (-3/6dB I think) so that EQ adjustments don't cause clipping and distortion. It makes the sound "smaller" until you adjust the volume back up.

Not sure about that, but it rarely grabs anything too huge.

It should work fine

I've got a stock AK100 coming and I have a plug in impedance adapter for my Etymotics ER4Ps that changes them to 100 Ohms. They can be plugged into any IEM. They go loud enough to give me a headache on my Ipod so I'll get back to you on how it changes the sound on my lower Ohm W4rs XBA4ips and Monster Inspirations etc.
For me , I have a Slee Voyager Amp and big pockets so I can't lose
