AudioExpert is a tool to join/merge, clean-up, align, sort, organize and manage music archives resp. music libraries. Supported formats are MP3, MP4, M4A, WMA, OGG, FLAC, WAV and AAC.
Automatically joining music archives
You have two or more large music libraries? And you also know that your collection contains the same title more than once? And you don\'t feel like sitting there for hours and do the work on your own? Here\'s the solution! Simply let AudioExpert do the work for you! AudioExpert will find the duplicates itself, while scanning the different archives. It will only copy those files that are not in your archive or have a better quality.
Import your iTunes media center to AudioExpert, edit, celanup and rearragne your tracks and export your changes back to iTunes. AudioExpert will remove nonexisting files from your iTunes media center (if you want this), adopts filenames and the naming of artists, albums etc. The deailled export dialog lets you access full control of the export process.
Automatic detection of duplicate copies
The detection is done either via MD5 Hashsum (regarding the pure audiostream only) and/or via the recognized tags. AudioExpert decides which file will be taken over by the bitrate, the stereomode, the length of the title and the samplingrate. In the preview you can check, and if necessary, modify it.
Managing large archives
Even if your archive contains more than 100,000 tracks, AudioExpert will still run fast and easy.
Managing more than one archive
AudioExpert allows you to manage not only your main library, but also several subsets, called libraries. You can synchronize the defined libraries with your MP3-player for instance. Managing libraries is very easy using the features of AudioExpert.
Identification of interpret / album / title for untagged data files via filename
The identification is reliant on the required informations of the file names and file paths. Unfortunately, there is no way of an identification by 100%. A fingerprint searching function over an online-service like MusicBrainz is planned for future releases.
Auto-recognition of mistyping or different spelling
For example, AudioExpert recognizes that \"Marilyn Manson\" and \"Marylin Manson\" is one and the same artist. The identification unfortunately is not working by 100% and sometimes even makes mistakes, but it is very easy to adjust. Corrected once, the program is informed and won\'t do the same mistake again.
You don\'t know how exactly to spell an interpret\'s name? Is it y or i? F or ph? No problem! The phonetical search will find the interpret, album or title, even if you are unsure.
