MyLibrary is an audio file tagger and library application – You can manage your audio files on a “per folder” basis or via M3U/tab-delimited files that can contain details of your music library. You can then edit extra details like Intro/Segue times, EndType, Opener and Category ready for importing into a scheduler and/or playout system.
Do you want to import meta-data (artist, title, year, cue-points etc) into the following systems from ONE place (without having to enter the same data over and over again) ?
AudioEnhanceDPS, AutoTrack, BCX3, Dalet (via the ACE converter, plus INF/XML read), EncoDAD, Genesys, mAirList, Natural Music, Powergold, PSquared AutoTrack/Myriad, RCS NexGen/Selector/Master Control/Zetta, StationPlaylist Creator/Studio – No other application currently handles this many playout systems!
- Want to automatically detect cue points and end-types (end or fade) for quickly getting a “playout ready” library imported ?
- Want to edit cue points (intro, hook, segue etc) from your EncoDAD library but don’t like their hard-to-use editor ?
- Want to import songs into RCS Selector using the XML format AND have all the cue (intro, hook, segue) points set ?
- Want to save Cart Chunk tags for direct import into EncoDAD, Genesys, Myriad, RCS Master Control or Zetta ?
- Need a quick and simple audio editor that allows you to see the cue points and perform basic edits ?
- Do you need to import a CSV/Tabbed Text file of data into Powergold ?
- Want to scan your music for BPMs ?
- Or do you just want a simple audio tagger that allows you to sort and export according to Genre, Duration, Year etc ?
It’s probably better to ask “What can’t MyLibrary do?” – It does a fair amount, that’s for sure. In short, if you want to manage your audio library and/or export to various playout systems/schedulers whilst keeping Cart/CutIDs identical then MyLibrary is probably the tool you need! It supports popular tag formats such as APE, ID3v1+2, plus the broadcast-industry Cart Chunk format as well as FLAC, MP2, MP3, OGG, WAV (PCM) file formats. At this time, BSI InfoEdit tags are *not* supported – this is a non-standard method of tagging, but it is being looked at.
In short, MyLibrary can help you manage a home music library as well as export cue-data and other information to a broadcast playout system and/or scheduler. If you need a quick-start to your music library, my own music data files can be purchased with offers over 14,000 JMD files which match-up with your own audio on a filename basis – automatically populating Artist, Title, Year, Genre, Tempo, Intro/Segue etc.
There is a fair amount of support for professional playout systems such as Dalet, Enco’s DAD, mAirList, PSquared’s AutoTrack/Myriad and StationPlaylist Creator/Studio. Exporting your “domestic” library to a playout system and/or scheduler is now just a single click away. Using / delimited styles, you can export a particular genre/style (as well as other properties like EndType, Opener, Style, Year etc) to a simple text file (ie: M3U format) which you can then load into a scheduler (such as StationPlaylist Creator) – this enables you to be a bit more picky about what files are contained in your Creator Categories.
The following images show the 3 SongCard tabs allowing you to edit Artist/Title, Year, Gender, Tempo plus Genre/Style, Publisher info as well as mark Cue Points visually using the waveform editor.

Manage Your StationPlaylist Creator Tracks
MyLibrary can function as an alternative to StationPlaylist’s Track Tool program. You can manage your Creator music using MyLibrary, assign multiple categories – sort via a specific category, copy the filenames to the clipboard and then paste them into your SPL song category.

As part of the Song Card, you can make basic edits and set cue points in a visual manner. The following actions are currently available: Delete, Fade In, Fade Out, Normalize, Top ‘n’ Tail, Volume Up/Down 10% and Undo.
When using the waveform view, the cue points are shown on the display and they can be moved either by dragging them or using the normal +/- buttons. The Editor does not support FLAC or Dalet SND files.
