Tonal Metadata App

I’ve been looking for metadata apps that might assist with unidentified Classical recordings and found Tonal. I’m trying to figure out what it does by sifting through the marketing-speak.

Does anyone have any experience of it ? Can we write the metadata provided to our own files ?

Like any other such attempts, the problem is getting a critical mass of involved users. Very unlikely it will take off with closed source data integration. If I had the time (I don’t), I’d be talking with Wikimedia Foundation about adding a lot more music metadata to Wikidata, much more likely to achieve critical mass. They’ve at least started… but still very incomplete.

I used Tonal and exchanged quite a bit with its developper (baoshan). Unfortunately Tonal is no longer being developped, which is a shame because the concept was great.
