What are people saying about Helium Premium

Wood Miles It seems to have a nice interface; but, that is only one aspect - what is critical for maintaining a well organized collection is the track/tag editor. This feature is the prime element offered between the free to everyone version and the $29.00 version offered here. When I used the download link provided I was able to download a combination version. However, when I installed it I was able to install the free to everyone version. There was no trial period for the version offered here. (Have I missed anything?) Track/tag editors vary form excellent to a total-waste-of-time-and-effort so there is no way for me to evaluate the merits of spending $14.50.

A. Goyal Wondering if the sale is also on the Network edition that allows upto 5 users in the household? My take on this software- 1. Helium has a useful feature to convert WMA to MP3. My voice recorder only outputs in WMA so this will allow me to bulk convert all files at once into MP3 to be able to play in any gadget. 2. Look n feel of screenshots is not bad. 3. My songs collection is mostly international so I can't expect Helium to fix tags or improve broken MP3's

A useful blog?  Written by someone who set up a blog just for the purpose of that review, has no user profile, no other blogs and writes such a glowing report that the software writer's mother could have written it..... Yeah. that's not suspicious at all....  If I want reviews written by the makers, I'll go to Amazon :-)

Fredrik Heidgert I agree with this blog post feeling written by us, but it's actually not. We are offering a fully working copy for reviewing purposes or magazines and bloggers to help spread the word of Helium Music Manager (see more http://www.helium-music-m...e-version/ ). We hope to get good reviews of course, but never say that they need to be. It happens that people create a new blog just to gain a free license and we regret that.
Imploded Software - May 9 2010 at 8:54pm Copy Link
Fredrik Heidgert In answer to "Wood Miles": Helium Music Manager is available in three different versions, where one is totally free but with limited functionality. The free version contains all tagging facilities, including downloading of information from various online sources (see plug-ins: http://www.helium-music-m.../plug-ins/ ). We even offer a spreadsheet mode tag editor which - in our point of view - offers the fastest and most user friendly tagging on the market. The Premium and Network versions adds more ways of browsing your music as well as more advanced features and tools. More information about the different versions is available here: http://www.helium-music-m.../download/ Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Neville Franks HMM looks like it has potential however a "Quick Start" guide would be a real plus. The manual is more of a reference and is missing "How To Use It" it information. I also find accessing on-line manuals slow and cumbersome.

I started "Download Album Picture" and it has been running for over 20 minutes and looks like it will keep going for some time yet. It appears to be in an endless loop. I can't see any way to stop this process and Cancel isn't working. I killed HMM and restarted it and tried "Download Album Picture"again. It stopped after a few minutes however when I select a photo and press OK or double click on a photo it isn't appearing as the picture in "Album Information". Further if I press "Next" in "Download Album Picture"it starts searching all over again!

HMM is a program I would really like to like but am having trouble.

Oh and the Download links on the HMM Web site take you to a Purchase page!

Fredrik Heidgert Neville Franks: We realize that Helium Music Manager can be hard to grasp at first and we intend do improve the documentation over time (video tutorials are on the way). About the problem with the "Download Album Picture" feature, please contact our support at  and we will look into your problem right away. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

Fredrik Heidgert Albert: You don't need iTunes to sync to iPods. Note that we don't support the latest firmwares on iPods and iPhones. We have a separate streaming application for iPhone users to fill this gap.

Albert C. Thanks Fredrik for taking the time. I just tried HMM 8 in a XP SP3 machine and an iPod Touch 3G. It doesn't detect the iPod at all. Maybe you could tell me if I'm missing something in my setup. As you said iTunes isn't required, I didn't install it. Thanks! ^_^

Robin Edwards Hi there, since I need to quickly find out if Helium can do what I need, can it convert my tracks to a custom MP3 compression and rename and copy the files to a custom directory structure in one go? I think the answer is yes but don't have time to test.

M M The description of the program says that you can "Import tunes... off of physical media like audio CDs, records, and even cassette tapes". Does it indeed import from cassette tapes. All I can find looking in the free version is import from CD. Thank you!

John Gee Bought the program and have the Premium license key. But only download avail is the free version. License email shows no download instruction. Do I download the free version and apply license to that. Instructions could be more clear!
Jul 23 2011 at 8:17pm Copy Link
Fredrik Heidgert Robin: The Device synch tool can do all of this.

M M: Insertion of cassette information is made manually and cannot be as automated as inserting CD's for example.

John: We're sorry for the confusion. Just download the Free version and you will get the option to unlock it to Premium or Network directly from the installation.

Brian H Hi- I am very interested in this product! Could this be used as "iTunes" replacement? Does it support apps, as well as music? Can it synch music/photos/contacts/documents/apps to iPhone/iPod/iPad without iTunes? Thanks. -Brian

Fredrik Heidgert Hi Brian,

Helium Music Manager cannot be considered to be an i Tunes replacement I'm afraid. It focuses entirely on music.

We do have two iPhone/iPod Touch apps, one remote control:

and one streamer which will stream music from your own music library:

It doesn't support apps but plug-ins can be used to download information, album and artist pictures from various online sources such as, Amazon, Google, Yahoo and Discogs.

Techtoysavvy I really want something that can fix my wma, m4a and other tags. I want to fix the broken and incorrect tags without harming the good tags. I do not want songs from Hotel California re-tagged to several different greatest hits and soundtrack compilations. What databases do you use? Can you automatically identify mistagged songs from their signatures? See my posts on yesterday's Tune Doctor. I have turned down Tune Up and it works. I also use J.River. It would be great to download lyrics.

If you do these things then I will try your program. If you can't save me the time. I am jaded after trying Tune Doctor yesterday and Tune Up does more harm than good to my collection.

An EXCELLENT manager with fabulous tagging. I have used the FREE version and am now going to purchase it ;-))

It is so much better than MusicMatch, which I also have, but it is flaky with Windows 7.

Ron K If I understand correctly, the network edition is essentially a central library, and I see that it permits 5 connections. If I want to use Helium Premium as the desktop clients, do I also need to buy separate licenses for those?

Luther I downloaded Helium and began adding files over half an hour ago. my progress is 15 of 15873 files. I'm thinking it should be done sometime next 4 months.

There is no way I can evaluate this in the 9 hours I have left.

Suggestions from Helium would be appreciated.

Fredrik Heidgert Ron K:

The Network license permits you to install the software on up to five computers, and connect them to the same central library. You do not need any additional Premium licenses for this.

Fredrik Heidgert Luther:

Adding 15 000 files should take under 3 months actually so something must be wrong,. ;-)

Sounds like it halted on one of the files. It should be able to continue, though, skipping files it have problems with. Please contact us and we will see to helping you out. You can still use the coupon code to get the discount if you're still interested.

"*** We're Sorry, but there is currently a problem with this deal which means that we cannot bring you the reduced price! We're working on getting this fixed. Please check back soon. If we can't fix the problem we usually run the deal again. ***". Why don't you get your service and equipment upgraded to the point where you can actually deliver the goods as advertised? This just makes you look like a bunch of bozo amateurs. Do you think customers would pay to purchase products that cannot even be delivered for free?

Val Pope This kind of "advertisement" is happening a lot and for a while on BitsDuJour ...
These guys from Helium Music Manager, and others, must be paying a bunch of money for such advertisement...because: Negative advertisement for a unknown or little known product is a good advertisement, and that is so, because many people take it personally and can not ignore it and keep their mouths shut!

This is a kick "under the belly" from BitsDuJour against the interested people for such offers, and that's why they keep the timer going and not post the most difficult word to write, in words of course ... "cancelled" (for whatever reason, but cancelled/annulled).

I'm just a jumble marketing guy and each person may have their own opinions; opinions, which for sure, help each of them make a lot of money or gain other pursued results. ;)

Val Pope @Nico Westerdale: Thanks for a comment regarding our complaints. At least someone/few from BDJ is reading all/some of the comments. That's good to know.

@David B: The deal is off. Usually BDJ changes the yellow button with another yellow button :| ... and they add a comment under the "timer". The timer has a mind of his own and keeps on going on going until the end, because is part of the "AI (artificial intelligence)" of the website; the timer can not be stopped even by the admin or anybody else, as a matter of fact; but maybe a lousy hacker could help with that.


So if you have poor eye view or poor concentration to distinguish which is what (including colors and words), which many people have (poor concentration - I mean) you end up writing here, in the giveaway section, a good section most of the time, I might ad, with useful software too, writing comment-complaints and nobody of BDJ asks, why are there so many idiots who do not understand what is in front of their eyes ... Maybe because of the relation eye-concentration thing I wrote above? A social common problem of today. People just need more help with contrasting colors and people to keep their word and not a politician nor a marketer :P ... like the "...we usually run the deal again." Because I hope you don't. Maybe those guys had some technical issues, and it's OK to try again, but most of the time, is the human factor, and they oppose their previous decision because they feel tricked or they try to trick BDJ. Whatever the reason ... I got bored writing this comment so I leave it like this.

rodken Too bad, looks like useful software for free. I'm not gonna cry like a baby though (yes that's how you others sound).

Traveler4God Thanks for the info. Too bad the deal didn't work this time but I'm sure BDJ will work out the problems and have it offered at another time as they usually do when an offer fails.

Thanks BDJ for being such a great company and offering wonderful software for free and at great discounts!

One comment though, I really don't understand how come some people feel the need, or think they have the right, to be so caustic, abusive, and bullying with the comments they post. Those of you who write with such harshness really do not help the reputation of BDJ. BDJ does such a good job that they do not need bullies to defend them with mean words so, please, keep your harsh comments about BDJ or others to yourselves as they do not help promote the mission of BDJ which is providing software "for people who love software." So, please, let's be professional, civil, courteous, polite, and understand that BDJ serves people from many countries and cultures who may not be able to express themselves in the clearest way via the English language which for many is a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th language.

Well, thanks for listening! Here's trying to make the world a better place promoting peaceful and civil discourse among people!

Arlene Manduca The principals and staff at Bitsdujour do an excellent job. They're honorable and try hard to be responsive.

It's upsetting when a giveaway or promotion doesn't work. It's frustrating and feels like a trick. Often I miss the second giveaway that works. That feels bad a second time. When it happens repeatedly is when people get particularly angry.

We all log in to be notified of a promotion. Why can't we be notified of the date we can get it, if the promotion won't work? Seems simple. They know who we are. They can see we get the software and email us a registration code for showing up when the site didn't work.

Someone should put a notice up right away saying - "The deal doesn't work and will be given to all who logged in or made comments. Done! Or "There was a problem and we may not be able to repeat this promotion." No more wasted time.

We weren't walking by and someone decided to hand us something. We are in line at our computer screens. Many all over the world in different time zones make efforts all day when the promo doesn't work. To end up with nothing is disrespectful of our time. I feel it's a valid complaint.

Paying attention to followers' experience on the site goes a long way to generate the positive buzz vendors want. They give away programs to get GOOD publicity and word of mouth.

There will always be problems. But there can always be a PLAN B safety-net to deliver what was promised to people who showed up in good faith. Right?

We've spent the day discussing how we can mitigate these types of problems so that y'all won't be disappointed in the future.

Nico Westerdale Luke,

Thanks for asking, as you know all our deals are arranged with the agreement of the software vendor, and we work with literally thousands of them. Occasionally there are last minute technical or communication problems which mean that we have to pull a deal. We're working on changing our process of working with the software vendors so the problems happen less often, and if they do happen we have a better system of dealing with it.

Again really sorry we couldn't bring you this one.

joan collins Nach 2 Stunden wieder deinstalliert. Vollkommen ungeeignet für grosse Sammlungen. Kann z.B. Winamp nicht den kleinen Finger reichen.
Grauenvolle und unübersichtliche GUI
Bedienung total umständlich
Bei den Einstellungen blickt sowieso keiner durch
Fazit: Macht was es will aber nicht was es soll.
Dafür normal Geld zu verlangen ist unverschämt - aber ich nehm´s nicht mal geschenkt.

Winamp for big collections?
Or in german: Die Anzahl der Skins entscheidet über die Qualität des Programms ;-)
Sep 5 2013 at 3:42am Copy Link
joan collins @Kennwortvergesser:
"Winamp for big collections?" - Warum nicht? Habe keine Probleme damit.
"Die Anzahl der Skins..." - vollkommener Schwachsinn! Die Bedienbarkeit ist für mich ausschlaggebend - und die ist bei Helium unbefriedigend. Alleine die "Seitenleiste" mit Alphabet etc.: vollkommen unnötig - in Winamp ein paar Buchstaben ins Suchfeld und ich hab´ was ich will...
Ansonsten: Bei Titel aus dem Net lege ich keine eigenen Album-Ordner an sondern nur einen Interpreten-Ordner und obwohl darin alle Dateien und Bilder klar beschriftet sind übernimmt Helium nur das erste Bild im Ordner für alle Dateien. Würde sich vielleicht in den Einstellungen ändern lassen, aber sich da durchzuackern - nein, danke. Zahlt sich dafür nicht aus.

Daniel Hauser @ joan collins : I can't disagree more about your conclusions!

Yes there are other pieces of software out there, that work better as a pure music player. I've used WinAmp in the past and don't see many ways around FooBar2000, but WinAmp isn't that bad either. Still, to me the Helium Music Manager has a different purpose and I feel confirmation by the availability of additional software like Helium Streamer and Helium Remote. What's left for the Music Manager is the management of your music database and the back-end for all your music playing software.

My collection is about 3,500 albums large - most of which I've collected painstakingly over the years - and I couldn't be happier with this application for the following reasons:

x) The Music Explorer lets me browse by several categories like artists, albums, song titles, genres, release and recording years, date added, etc. I can view favorites of any kind (artist, album or song) or view the data in user defined views.

x) The advanced search contains an extensive query editor, where I can refine a search bit by bit and save it for continued use.

x) Keeping the database serviced and complete is easy with plugins for external services. Whether it's about images from Amazon or Google, artist or album information from Discogs or LastFm, these tasks can largely be automated and allow for a comprehensive music database with interesting, important and helpful data.

x) To me however, the most interesting bit about the Premium version are its available database formats. If you ever wanted to reuse all this data about your music, then you've found a way with this application. I've written a (remote) music player application, which directly reads from the MySQL database. This effectively lets me piggyback on Helium Music Manager's various data collection functions without the need to write (and maintain) any code for that.

I don't think WinAmp is capable of a tenth of that and neither are other management applications like iTunes or MediaMonkey. Then again, I haven't kept up to date on those alternatives, so I wouldn't know about recent developments. Why trade in Helium for an inferior product?
Sep 5 2013 at 4:21am Copy Link
Jan-Christoph Ihrens @joan collins: Ich finde es eher unverschämt, eine derart negative Bewertung über ein Produkt zu schreiben, das man offenbar kaum getestet hat. Die Suchfunktion funktioniert z. B. auch in Helium bestens - wer die alphabetische Auflistung nicht nutzen möchte (wie auch ich), muss das auch nicht tun. Und zumindest ich komme mit der Bedienung bestens zurecht...

Ich nutze WinAmp als unkomplizierten Player und Helium für die Verwaltung meiner Sammlung und kann Daniel Hauser nur in allen Punkten zustimmen.

Constantin Florea @Aquarius Gabriel - The issue you mention is consistent with using FireFox (especially when having a lot of add-ons installed). I suggest clearing your browser cache and try either Google Chrome and if that doesn't work, please try Internet Explorer.

joan collins @Daniel Hauser:
"I don't think WinAmp is capable of a tenth of that..." - LOL!
Browse by artists, album, song titles in WA you don´t need because you have a own window for each of this categories and can look into very fast.
Also the search is (for me) easier.
WA works with Gracenote but I don´t need lot of the external services (Amazon, Google etc.) because many of their informations are wrong. That´s why I never use "auto-tag" - I write my tags itself (have than one "format" and not one with big, one with little letters etc.). Also images: If you add them automatically many are not right (Kann natürlich das Programm nichts dafür - liegt an den Services).
The database-function: I don´t need.
Helium an inferior product? No, I will not say - but I don´t like it because many other tools (WA or another) works also or better.
Sorry for my english!

Jan-Christoph Ihrens @joan collins: Doch, selbstverständlich. Aber "Bei den Einstellungen blickt sowieso keiner durch" und "Würde sich vielleicht in den Einstellungen ändern lassen, aber sich da durchzuackern - nein, danke" klingt eigentlich eher nicht nach eingehender Beschäftigung mit der Software.

Ist ja kein Problem, wenn man darauf keine Lust hat, allerdings wäre es dann fair, den Beitrag nicht so klingen zu lassen, als wäre es die schlechteste Software des Universums. Das ist Helium nämlich definitiv nicht. Ich habe damals vor dem Kauf einige vergleichbare Produkte getestet, und da stach Helium schon positiv hervor, während die Konkurrenzprodukte durch Instabilität, haarsträubende Bugs und äußerst eingeschränkte Feature-Sets "glänzten".

Etwas mehr Objektivität und Zurückhaltung bei der Wortwahl wären aus meiner Sicht daher wünschenswert. Es hat sich leider im Netz durchgesetzt, das alles entweder supergut oder extrem schlecht ist - ein paar Nuancen dazwischen wären schön, zumal anderen dann die Entscheidung auf Basis solcher Rezensionen leichter fällt.

PC Thanks to BDJ and Imploded for this software - and I have a question: got it downloaded/installed/registered with no problems (I use Windows 7 and Firefox). When Helium launched and I was fiddling around with it looking through some of my music, Zemana AntiLogger alerted me that Helium was trying to take a screenshot. I blocked it and am reluctant to use it now. Why was it trying to capture my screen?

Yes we will! You will be notified by e-mail once next version of Helium Music Manager Premium and Network is available. We always offer 50% discount no upgrades (both from older to newer versions, and also from Premium to Network).

Fredrik Heidgert @P. Brown

Helium Music Manager does not take screenshots that the user does not allow. There is actually only one place where a screenshot may be taken in the program and that's when a crash occurs and a dialog comes up that lets the user report the issue to us. In this dialog the user will be able to choose whether he/she wants to include a screenshot of when the problem happened. This can sometimes help us greatly in finding and eliminating bugs. But as I said, no screenshot is ever taken apart from this.

Software Babe I purchased Helium Music Manager 8.4 back in 2012 and you sent me a FREE upgrade to version 9.0 and it never worked. I was told to just install v9 and it would replace the updates on top of v8.4. IT NEVER WORKED. I had to uninstall it all and reinstall v8.4 just to get it to work properly as the screen would freeze as it loaded.

Will this new version 10 replace v8.4 or will I have to uninstall again and just use this latest version. I do NOT want to go through all that install/uninstall again.

I have an HP Elite PC with W7, AMD 64-bit with 16 GB memory and all the latest updates.

Ron Cavin I have over 3000 mp3 files on my computer, Helium found them all and cataloged them, but when I tried to play any of my files, helium says that EVERY SINGLE MUSIC FILE I have is a wma protected file and cannot be played!!!
This is total bull, because i KNOW my files, only about six of them are protected wma files, and I long ago moved those off my pc to the cloud until the time I can find a license for them.
This Helium took forever to finish loading and installing, and needless to say it took another forever to find and list all my music files...I am extremely frustrated and irritated at this waste of my morning, since apparently Helium can't tell it's a** from a hole in the ground! My music files are NOT wma, they are ALL mp3s with no restrictions on playback, copying or any other type of restriction. I OWN THEM ALL, bought and paid for, and if I can't even play them with Helium then the software is no use at all to me.

Eustace Phenackertiban I have to take this opportunity to make a very positive comment on this software. I'm usually not shy about talking about issues when I find them, so it's only fair that I offer props when appropriate, and it's very much so now. I've never heard of these folks before, but I'll remember them now.

The purchase process went very smoothly, no Facebook "likes" needed, just straight to the check out process and the download link. File downloaded quickly, and by the time I got it the registration code was in my inbox. Installed quickly, activated smoothly with copy/paste, then the magic. It found 4769 files on my external archive drive in a shockingly small time, less than 15-20 minutes or so. It played every one I tried to play, and the search function was very fast, returning the four copies of "Tainted Love" I had in four different locations, with the name in four different formats, in just a second..

I haven't tested the rest of the program yet, because I wanted to come back and post this before the offer ends. If you haven't yet grabbed this gem, DO IT, NOW, before the offer ends. If you have a sizable collection, you WANT this program, believe me. Recommended!
