Library Actions

This menu is offered when you right-click the songs list - it lets you perform a variety of actions like mass-tag, export, copy/move files etc.

Load Selected Track into Song Card
Opens the Song Card and displays the data from the current item

Show Tags for this File
Displays a window showing the various tag/meta-data information available for the current item

Search Artist/Title/FileName Fields
Find tracks using the Artist, Title or FileName as search fields - this is useful if you want to find a particular Artist/Title string or even look for " FEAT " in order to bulk-assign Related Artists.

Get+Set Folder Location
Sets the OriginalPath field to the folder location of each file, eg: full path

Copy File/s to...
Copyies the selected files to the destination folder

Delete File/s to Recycle Bin...
Deletes the selected files to the Windows Recycle Bin

Move File/s to...
Moves the selected files to the destination folder

Copy Selected FileName/s to Clipboard...
This makes it easier to paste filenames into an M3U playlist or Category in StationPlaylist Creator

Remove APE, FLAC and ID3 Tags from File
Clears the tag data

Rename This File
Allows you to rename a file

Export to ADE/ID3/SPL Tags - CTRL-T
Saves APE and ID3 Tags - also compatible with StationPlaylist Creator/Studio using its custom APE fields (like INTRO, SEGUE etc)

Export to Cart Chunks
Saves your track data to the broadcast-standard Cart Chunk format.  There are 3 Cart Chunk profiles available: EncoDAD, Myriad and RCS.  This is because they each use the PostTimer (cue marker) fields in different ways.  Please ensure you select the right profile for the automation system you plan to use.

Export to FLAC Tags - FLAC files only!
Saves the current data to FLAC tags

Export to ID3/Audio Tags - CTRL-I
This is a domestic tagging routine and saves to ID3v1, ID3v2 and AUDIO tags in MP3 files plus AUDIO tag in WAV files

Export to JMD Files - these are preferred method of maintaining your song data - CTRL-J
Saves the current data in the list view to JockMaster JMD files
.

Export to M3U Playlist - CTRL-E
Creates a standard Winamp-style (single line, path\filename) playlist from the selected files

Export to CSV File
Exports to a basic CSV file - the Config screen allows you to determine whether the column headers are also saved, as well as a custom delimiter.  Please note that MyLibrary is only designed to "read-back" the tabbed file.  When the "Save" dialog box opens, you have the option to save with a .csv or .txt file extension.

Export to Excel CSV File
Creates a true comma-delimited file with " qualifier, eg: "field1","field2","field3" etc

Copy %token% CSV Format to Clipboard
Puts the defined %token% CSV template onto the Windows clipboard - can be used with mAirList or RCS Zetta when you need to import (or update) information in the database.

Check ID3 Tags
Performs a check against the current list's Artist field and the MP3's ID3v2 Artist field.


Playout / Scheduler Interfacing
These settings are mostly for the Pro users and include export formats for AutoTrack/Myriad, Dalet , Enco DAD/Presenter, Genesys, mAirListPlayoutONE, PowerGold and RCS Selector/Zetta .

Dalet XML
In conjuntion with the ACE Audio Conversion Engine by Trinity Software, you can import audio tracks into the Dalet playout system with this feature.  MyLibrary will output an XML file for each audio track with a variety of fields - this will allow you to use the Database Search in Dalet to find tracks by Year, Category etc.

DRS2006 HRData.txt Import
Reads a DRS2006 database file - Because the HRDat.txt only specifies a filename, you will need to define the global DRS audio path prior to importing.  This can be found in Config>Misc Settings>DRS2006 Audio Location  Please note that when loading this data for the first time - you must then save to the tag type that your Song Card is set to read otherwise the data won't be read.  All CSV fields must be present to load this type of file - if fields are blank, you will need to manipulate the file manually (using Excel) before attempting to load it!

EncoDAD DropBox
Creates a meta-text file for each audio file - allows you to easily import cuts into Enco's DAD and Presenter.  If Cart Numbers are defined, they will be carried-over to the EncoDAD Cuts Library.

Enco NewDB XML
Creates and XML file for NewDB, Enco's replacement for their "DropBox" application.

Send to Genesys
This routine will copy your WAV files to your Genesys import folder as well as saving the Genesys CartChunk format and renaming the files to the CartID stored in MyLibrary. This allows you to easily manage a scheduler with CartIDs as well as a simple "send to playout" method for getting audio into your system. You can specify what Categories are used during the import by adding the following new INI settings to MyLibrary.INI - If you do not set an ImportPath, MyLibrary will prompt you each time you use "Send to Genesys" for the import location. Setting it here makes everything quicker especially if you only have 1 Genesys server.

The prefixes allow normal Cart Numbers to be renamed so that they import into the right Genesys Category. ItemTypes ADVERT, JINGLE, SONG and VOICETRACK are supported at present. PROMO defaults to ADVERT, PACAKGE defaults to JINGLE. The prefixes above are merged with the Cart Number from MyLibrary in the following way:

ABBA - DANCING QUEEN.wav has a Cart Number of 12345 and and ItemType of SONG
It is renamed to M12345.wav via the "Send to Genesys" routine
Genesys interprets M12345.wav as a "song" and imports it into the MUSIC Category.

JINGLE - TOP OF HOUR.wav has a Cart Number of 54321 and an ItemType of JINGLE
It is renamed J54321.wav and imported into Genesys as a Jingle.

The Prefix settings allow you to match MyLibrary to your Genesys Category settings - Some sites use MUxxxxx for Music

Export PowerGold ¬ Import File
This will create a ¬ delimited text file of the selected items and includes special formatting for PowerGold importing.  The Year field is included twice, this allows a Year Property to be defined during import (saving you doing a Mass Change later on).

Broadcast Radio / PSquared Export
2 Myriad Audiowall CSV types are offered, plus AutoTrack and Advanced Tool Pack CSV files. 
If you have the Advanced Tools Pack, you can use MyLibrary to "slipstream" new data (such as Hook points) into Myriad without re-importing the carts.  You can also export a Myriad 5 CSV "import list" as well as produce accompanying XML files for each piece of audio so that valuable meta-data from MyLibrary is also populated during import - see the AutoTrack/Myriad CSV page for details.

About Cart Numbers / CutIDs
You do not have to have any Cart Numbers for Myriad to import from a MyLibrary CSV Export - However, it is advisable as once you've assigned a Cart Number and sent the file to Myriad, if a matching filename appears later on (such as from a compilation album) it will have a Cart Number as well as all the other attributes.  This would alert you to a potential duplicate in the playout system (or your music library).

RCS GUID and XML
This Pro option creates a master XML file that can be read by RCS Selector to import/update a music library.

Create List for ALL Categories
This routine takes all of the tracks in your main library and creates a new list with duplicate entries for multiple Genres/Styles.  eg: If a track has a Style of DANCE/POP then it will appear twice in the list.  This is useful for exporting to schedulers that only permit 1 Category per item.#

Create List of Songs with INTROS between x and x seconds
Finds and lists songs with an Intro duration that falls between the values you define in the Confg screen.
