  • You can import tags from the MusicBrainz online service;
  • Support for working with CD;
  • Support for plugins that significantly expand tag editing capabilities;
  • Usecover art using plugins from Amazon, fanart.tv, TheAudioDB;
  • Manual lookup. If you want granular control over how your files are being tagged, or the above methods provided inaccurate results (or no results), the alternative is to manually lookup and choose the correct release(s) for your files;

Support for extensive drag and drop functions. Some of these operations:

  • Drag a file from the file browser to an album track;
  • Drag a file from the file browser to an album — this attempts to match the file to the album automatically;
  • Drag a directory from the file browser to an album — this attempts to match all the files from the dir to the album;
  • Drag one album onto another to match all the files from one to the other;
  • Drag unmatched files from an album onto another album or back to unmatched files.
