AMM is a program to let users browse the music contents located on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) or an external USB storage device, so that the contents appear as if they are located on the internal Hard Disk Drive(s) of an Aurender. After you scan your NAS shares and/or external USB storage, you can browse contents by Artist, Composer, Conductor, Album title and Genre with album covers in the app.*
To use AMM with Aurender, your Aurender must be updated to 4.4.58/5.4.58 or later.
*Note that the files must be properly tagged with metadata in order for them to appear correctly on the Conductor App.
Next, if you currently have version 1.x of AMM installed, then please uninstall it from Windows using Add/Remove Programs. Otherwise, extract the downloaded zip folder and run the setup.exe file.
Installing AMM for Mac OS X (OS X v10.9 or later is required)
To install AMM on Mac OS X, ensure you are running version 10.9 (Mavericks) or later before downloading the file from this link: AMM for Mac OSX 10.9 or later If you have version 1.x of AMM installed already, please remove it before installing the new version. Otherwise, extract the downloaded zip file and install the app by moving AMM to the Applications folder (or any folder you wish to designate for AMM). To start AMM, select the app and double click to open. You will be asked to open an app from an unidentified developer, select Yes.
Using AMM to scan NAS shares
To scan a NAS share, when you start AMM, it will display the Aurenders located on your network. If there is only one Aurender, it will be selected by default. If you don’t see your Aurender(s) on the list, click the Smart Search button. Select an Aurender from the list to prepare information for your music contents on NAS shares or a USB storage.
Once you have selected the Aurender you would like to sync the AMM information with, click the Back button.
Next, to scan the NAS folders, select the NAS button.
Add a shared folder from the NAS by clicking the Add Share button.
You will see a list of available NAS drives on your network. When you select a NAS, you will see the shared folders you have enabled on the drive. After you select a shared folder to connect, please enter User ID and Password to connect the selected shared folder on the NAS. If your NAS doesn't allow browsing shared folders with a guest account due to security settings, you can enter the User ID and Password first, and then select the NAS device again and the shared folder list will be displayed. To add multiple shared folders, simply repeat this step.
Once the shared folders you wish to add have been selected, click the "Start Scan" button. It is best to use a wired connection for scanning the contents of the NAS drive, and you may also want to disable WiFi on your computer to get the best results. This will ensure the scan goes quickly.
Once scanning is finished, press the Exit button. The Aurender Conductor app will download the updated information from AMM.
Using AMM to Scan USB Storage
You can also use AMM to scan an attached USB storage device, whether it is a memory stick or a hard disk drive. First, attach the USB drive to the PC or Mac you have installed AMM on. Next, with AMM open, select the USB button option.
Once you have selected the drive you wish to scan, select the "Start Scan" button. When the scan has finished, click the "Exit" button. The Aurender Conductor app will download the updated information.
