MP3 Boss description
Allows you to easily and fully manage and play your music files
MP3 Boss was designed to be an easy way to manage all of your audio files in one place. Unlike similar programs that become sluggish or impossible to use for large collections -- MP3-Boss will keep going & going...whether you have hundreds, thousands, or TENS OF THOUSANDS of files to manage.
Here are some key features of "MP3 Boss":
· Integrated Winamp support. Use the BEST audio player in the industry. Some organizers make you give up your favorite player. Not MP3-Boss -- it lets you keep using Winamp the way you always have, OR use the embedded controller in MP3-Boss to control Winamp!
· Automatic scanning of MP3 and WAV tags (ID3v1, ID3v2, Lyrics and more). Plus, it is just as easy to use a single command to write ALL of your changes to the files. How about read-only files on CD? No problem -- the MP3-Boss database stores ALL of your information in an easy-to-backup database.
· Support for all these file formats! Winamp directly supports ALL of these formats (built-in or via plugin).
· Rating Songs. Have so many songs that you've never gotten a chance to rate them? MP3-Boss makes this EASY! Individually rate the song that's playing, change the song category, even rename the file! Plus, an audio-preview function means that you can listen to song snapshots to QUICKLY rate your songs!
· Extensive database functions - sorting, searching, filtering, reporting. Want to play just a specific artist, album or title? Just filter the database and INSTANTLY play the songs you want. No other manager makes on-the-fly playlist so fast and convenient.
· General file management - rename, copy, move, delete (even while playing music). No longer will you need to worry about WHERE you store your audio files -- MP3-Boss keeps track -- and changing the name or folder in MP3-Boss automatically updates the actual filename and folder! Wait until you see how FAST you can move hundreds of files to a new drive -- MP3-Boss caches the changes you want to make and takes care of all that tedious work in the background -- while you continue to play your music!
· Safe! Plan to move a lot of files around? Most programs will blindly move your files from drive to drive without worrying about file corruption. MP3-Boss verifies that the file transfer was successful before the original is deleted -- you'd be surprised how easy it is to get corrupted files without this extra safety check!
· File cleanup - find exact or partial duplicates, and delete the songs you don't want - move the duplicates to the recycle bin, a new folder, or even to CD!
· Artist cleanup - an amazing new way to look at your songlist by Artist -- and correct hundreds of artistnames with just a few clicks!
· CD functions - create CD label inserts, automatically delete duplicates from your hard drive that are already on a CD, find filenames that will cause problems when burned to CD. PLUS, a smart-search that will treat all of your CD drives as equivalent.
· Rename or move your files. Want to move all your Death Metal to a new folder with subfolders based on the Artist & Album? MP3-Boss makes it EASY! Plus, because it intelligently moves files in the background, you can keep playing your songs while it does the heavy lifting in the background!
· Beats per Minute. Are you a DJ? Want to sort your songs by BPM (beats-per-minute)? How about automatically and quickly calculating beats-per-minute for all your songs using AutoBPM? Advanced calculations make sure that only the CORRECT BPM is entered for your songs. A quick-BPM mode moves through your songs as quickly as possible...moving to the next song once the BPM calculation is stable.
· Create reports based on all or some of your songs, songs on a specific CD, or just the songs in the current playlist. Plus, playlist reports can be sent to a TEXT, RTF or HTML file... or sent to the screen or printer. Almost 20 different report formats! Have a special format you just NEED? Send me a sample and it can be added!
· Create custom right-click menus to email your files, send them to Albumwrap, a Hex Editor and more! Amazing how easy it is to manage your files when YOU are in control!
· Audio-fingerprinting and intelligent artist identification (using an internal database of more than 17 THOUSAND verified artists) means that your music can be identified even if the tags are missing! Direct links to song and artist information on the Internet mean that now it is SIMPLE to find more songs from your favorite artists!
· Winamp playlist repair - automatically fix playlist path information for all your Winamp playlists.
· 800x600 (or higher) screen resolution
· 30 days trial

· Adds additional Errcount around CopyDown.
· MP3-Boss includes MusicIP scanning to get song information from your songs that don't already include embedded tags -- here's a world map showing some of the regions of the world that are using MP3-Boss right now to scan songs! MP3-Boss is very intelligent about song scanning -- it caches all of the song information for songs on your drive so you should only need to do a MusicIP scan once, even if you decide not to update the song tags!
