Music NFO Builder
As the name implies, Music NFO Builder allows you to create System Information files (NFO) based on the selected audio tracks. But the tool can also create playlists (PLS and M3U), CUE sheets, PAR and PAR v2 items, as well as extract the audio copy log and reveal MD5 or SFV signatures.
The interface of the tool is based on a standard window with a well-organized layout, where you can easily navigate the Selection, Information, Addons and Preview tabs, one step at a time. In other words, the UI can be looked at as a wizard-based layout, allowing novices to work with it.
So, you can get started by selecting the disk or directory containing your music files. It should be mentioned that Music NFO Builder can only process music files of the same type, although it supports MP3, MPC, APE and FLAC. If the selected location contains songs of different extensions, the app automatically chooses file types with the largest number of files.
The secondary tab lets you edit various details concerning a selected item, such as the codec, sample rate, bit rate, channel mode, encoder type, average bit rate, quality, genre and ID3 tags; this data shall be recorded in the output text document.
From the Addons section you can write even more information, making a reference to the rip date, post data, group, news server and notes, as well as specify the output file types to be created. Last but not least, you can preview the document, as well as create the NFO item with the simple click of a button.
Furthermore, you can make the app add the bit rate to every files, select the checksum type to be generated (MD5 or SFV) and alter the default output directory for this particular document, as well as switch to another language for the interface. Music NFO Builder finishes a job immediately while using a low amount of system resources. It has a good response time and worked well during our tests, without freezing, crashing or alerting us of any errors; we have not encountered any problems. All in all, Music NFO Builder should please users of all skill levels who want to create songs-based NFO items.
