MyLibrary is an audio file tagger and library application which can manage your audio files and/or music library. You can edit “broadcast” details like Intro/Segue times, EndType, Opener and Category ready for importing into a scheduler and/or playout system.
With this application, you only need to enter details ONCE before being able to import into any of the following:
AudioEnhanceDPS, AutoTrack v3/v4 and SE, AutoTrack, BCX3, Dalet (via the ACE converter, plus INF/XML read), Enco DAD/Presenter, Genesys, mAirList, Myriad v3/v4/v5, Natural Music, PlayoutONE, Powergold, PropFrexx, RCS NexGen/Selector/Master Control/Zetta, StationPlaylist Creator/Studio – No other application currently handles this many playout systems!
- Automatically detect cue points and end-types (end or fade) for quickly getting a “playout ready” library imported
- Save Cart Chunk tags for direct import into Enco DAD/Presenter, Genesys, Myriad v3/v4, RCS Master Control or Zetta
- Create+send Myriad v5 “transport” files
- Import a CSV/Tabbed Text file of data into Music1/Powergold
- Scans your music for BPMs
- MyLibrary does NOT convert audio formats (eg: MP3>WAV) – it’s just a tag reader/writer+library tool
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 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 17,000 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, AutoTrack/Myriad, PlayoutONE 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 2 SongCard tabs allowing you to edit Artist/Title, Year, Gender, Tempo plus Genre/Style and Publisher info..

Create, edit and save MP3 Tags
APE (compatible with StationPlaylist) and ID3v2 file tags – either by file or bulk-read/write
Scan for BPMs
You can scan your music tracks for BPMs and then save them to APE/ID3 and/or JMD
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.
Allows easy managing of groups where songs exist in several categories and you do not want to move the files around. Cue, Intro and Segue points can also be set.
Export mAirList v3/4 and v5/6 MMD Files
Create data files for the mAirList playout software – v6 now supported!
The following Cart Chunk fields are written to: Artist, Title, OutCue, UserDef, AUDs (cuein), INT3/INTe (intro), OUT2/SEG1/SEGs (segue point). This allows for integration with most broadcast systems such as AudioVault, Enco DAD Presenter, Myriad, Master Control, Selector, Wide Orbit, Zetta etc.
Create, edit and save BCX3 (and BCX-DJ) files and ButtonBox DB
Allows you to manage your BCX playout machines at the same time – either by file or bulk-read/write
A ButtonBox DB can also be created – this saves you having to perform a lengthy button re-cache.

An existing DRS2006 database file can be imported into MyLibrary for export to tag, meta-data or CSV
