I used the free version for a while, waiting to see if I could find any big faults with the software. I only had a few small gripes, so when I was a 24 hour sale (I believe it was something like 50% or 75% off) due to one of the hurricanes (Sandy I think) I pounced on the lifetime license. I had actually been mulling over getting it at full price the day before, so it was a perfect coincidence.

So all in all totally worth it, even at full price. Can't wait for 4.1.

Lifer here,

I've been using MM for about 3 years now. It only took me about 2 weeks to decide to buy a lifetime license. I was looking for a program to help me organize my massive collection. It has definitely been love at first sight. :wink:

I'm a lifetime user.

I first found out about MediaMonkey back in high school, a friend of mine (who actually could also claim to have introduced me to music itself) used it to manage his collection. So I always got to use it when we used his computer to play music at our little barbecues and stuff. That must have been around 2003-2004, version 2 back then. His collection was quite extensive, at least it was before everyone was downloading illicit music files at megabit speeds 24/7—some 50 GB I think. And I was impressed at the various cool ways you could browse the music and create playlists with MediaMonkey. It really appealed to my OCD collector and organiser side!

I must have started using it myself pretty quickly, but stayed with the Free version for quite a while. In 2007 finally I was growing more and more fond of the idea of folder monitoring and AutoPlaylists, so when I read that Lifetime License owners could try out pre-release versions of MediaMonkey 3, I finally became a Lifetime Gold user. Since then MediaMonkey always kept surprising me with its countless features, saving me from having my tags wiped by stupid other applications, etc., so over the years I came to the conclusion that MediaMonkey was the best value-for-money shareware purchase I ever made.

Of course I have always been recommending it to all my friends, and I'm happy to say that at least 2 of my personal recommendations have led to further Lifetime Gold registrations :D

Im a life time user I have been using it for a few years now, and been using MM to play music through a PA system. All my music cds have been saved in WAV format and the sound is amazing 16'000 + songs in my libary and you can find any song in an instant. Keep up the Good Work MM

Count me as a lifer, too.

I found MM about 5 years ago while searching for a replacement for a player I used to like but soured on, JetAudio (paid version). Subsequently bought a MM 3 Gold license, then upgraded to a lifetime license around June of last year in anticipation of MM 4. I've been evaluating MM 4 for a couple of weeks, but for me there are still too many problems so I'll stick with MM 3 for now. I'm sure they'll get the kinks worked out eventually. I'm still running Windows XP and have my 125,000 mp3 collection stored on a 2 TB Seagate GoFlex Desktop drive.

since 2007. The best music manager available today. MM4 added lots of new functionalities (I love the UPnP capabilities combined with the video management)

Where I think MM is having issues is with synchronization with portable devices, particularly smartphones. Smartphones are the majority of the devices out there and keep growing. There are always issues with iOS (not because of MM, that is true) and Android just does not sync well (too complicated, use of addons, etc)

I am preaching around that MM needs a good player for devices (android and apple, if possible, to start with) but not sure if it will ever happen.

I am about to go lifer after 3 years or two with the Monkey. With all of the scripters and forum experts, who could go wrong?

I just hope my upgrade coupon for gold 4 also applies for a lifetime license key. Would that not be peachy keen? Yes, it does I do confirm since I just used the coupon to do so. Go fro it y'all.

Yeah, takes way too long to populate and start up for me. I still use winamp to get to stuff quickly and to play around with the modules. However, nothing beats monkeying around with database power for nearly 2TB of audio files.

Ooooh, ooooh, ahhhh, ahhhh
scratch hop scratch hop

I was a MM3 Gold user and I loved it. It was just perfect for my large classical collection.

In the survey done about 18 months ago (?) I voted against including video in MM4. My concern was bloatware. As I recall the vote was about evenly split between the For and Against voters.

This week when MM4 came out I gave it a test run and I will admit to being very prejudiced but WOW!
I still do not need the video but there are so many features such as the portable install, being able to use all 4 of my CPU processors and the User Interface that I love (heavily criticized by some) .

It was an easy decision to convert to a Lifetime Licence - Congratulations and Thanks to the developers. You proved that more features do not necessarily mean bloatware!

Lifetime user since 2006 here. Still on the last version of Mediamonkey 3. Reported performance issues with MM4 is making me hesitant to make the jump, especially since I set up MM3 to do exactly what I want. If synching is made possible with iOS 5 on MM4 only, then I might be forced to make the transition; I'm still stuck on iOS 4.x.

Please do count that MM4 Added tens of new File formats including Videos.

In our tests (tested on libraries that had more than 250k of tracks) when MM4 is doing same job as MM3 results always show up to 35% speedup and not once slowdowns.

Laggy, yes. But than you will not see MM 4.0.1 unless we make some mistakes ;) Show us facts and constructive suggestions and as always we will try to fix them.

Lifetime since 12/12/05.

Refugee from Musicmatch which got bloated, slower and limited. MM was a breath of fresh air.

MM4 I find very laggy though which is a massive disappointment. MM3 and earlier were so slick

Lifetime since 2003 or 2004
Within the first week,possibly the first day, I downloaded MM
I knew straight away that it would do everything I needed and more with no gimmicks.

Thanks MM Team

I used Winamp for years as I was browsing and selecting my music via folders on my PC. I switched to using Winamp's media library, but I could never get it set up quite how I wanted. I'd already tried iTunes, foobar and numerous others and was never really taken with any of them, then I saw someone recommend MM on another site so I thought I'd give it a try. I bought a lifetime license after the first week of using it. I don't actually use any of the features that the paid for version has over the free version, but I knew I was going to be using this software for a long time so I thought I'd support the devs.

Had MM for almost 5 years now and nothing handles my music files better. I had other things before MM but once I found out about this program and it completely organized all 3 of my music folders saving me hours of work. I was hooked. Worth every penny for the lifetime license. This is a product the developers deserve every penny for the amazing program we have and I am just glad its still kicking. Version 4 Betas have been promising so far. Cant wait for the full final build for MM4.
