Often, you enjoy music with your cell phone or audio player, and sometimes you need to work with music files. For example, tagging music files, naming music files by automatically recognizing music tags, sorting out redundant files in a large batch of music files, making personalized playlists, etc. In fact, you don’t need a lot of software, just one AudioGrail, which can easily perform all music processing tasks.
As with other files, there is nothing more convenient than calling the software via right-click menu commands. To do this, during the installation of AudioGrail, simply check the Add ‘Open With AudioGrail’ Context Menu Item for suppoted files checkbox to launch the software via the Open With AudioGrail right-click menu command for music files (Figure 1).
Tip: If the interface appears garbled and unrecognizable at first startup, double-click the gear-shaped settings button in the right pane, and then select the software language as the English interface (Figure 2).
1. Automatic name recognition and renaming
First, you need to add music files to the AudioGrail software list. AudioGrail supports MP3, OGG, MPC, APE, AAC, FLAC and WavPack formats.
The music file names that appear in the list are the result of the software automatically extracting the music file tags. If you want to change the name of a track in the list, right-click on the track, then select Rename from the menu, and in the subsequent edit box that pops up, enter the file name you wish to display and click Save to save it (Figure 4).
2. Manage music file tags
The tag content of a music file contains not only the title of the music, but also information such as artist, album, era, track, description, etc. To view the above attributes of the music file in the current album, or to modify some of the items in it, simply double-click the Tag Editor icon in the toolbar (Tools) of the right pane of the software after loading the music file, and then view and modify it in the Tag Editor (Figure 5). In the Tag Editor window, you can use the Play button to listen to the current track file instantly, and you can also use Remove Tag to remove all the tag information and then rewrite it. Use the Back and forth arrow buttons to switch between the tracks in the album. Click the Disk button to save the changes when you are done.
3. Find duplicate music files
With more music files in your collection, it is inevitable that there are duplicate files. Redundant music files can encroach on disk space and cause unnecessary space wastage. For this reason, we can use AudioGrail’s duplicate file finder function to find duplicate files and process them accordingly.
First load all the music files you want to process, then double-click the Duplicate Finder button in the tools list. After launching the file checker window, click the Start button to start finding duplicate files automatically and displaying them in the list. Double click on a file to delete all other files that are duplicates of it (Figure 6).
4. Exporting Music Playlists
Save the currently loaded playlist for later recall, which will save you from the trouble of adding music files repeatedly after reinstalling the system or changing the computer.AudioGrail software comes with a list editor that can be used to save music playlists.
Double-click the Playlist Maker button in the Tools pane and make your choice in the pop-up list creation window: If you select Playlist with all files, it means create a list of all music; if you select Playlist per artist, it means take each artist as a group; if you select Playlist per album, it means take each album as a group. means one group for each album. After specifying the list file name, click on the Create button to create it (Figure 7).AudioGrail supports the creation of music file lists in M3U, PLS, XPL and other formats.
5. With CD burning needs
Fewer and fewer people are using CD players to enjoy music, but there are still some people using them. If there is a need to burn music in digital form to CD for enjoyment, you can use the CD burning function of AudioGrail software to do so.
First insert the empty CD into the burner, load the music files to be burned into the AudioGrail software and double click the CD Burner button on the toolbar to start the burning tool. Select the media capacity (650MB or 700MB) and the burn mode type (audio track mode or file mode) and click the Burn button to start burning (Figure 8).
