When there's too much music and too little time, the last thing you need is a disorganized music library. With untagged or wrongly-tagged MP3 and WMA files stored randomly all over your hard disk, it can be hard to find a song when you need it.
Your best solution is the Creative Media Toolbox.
Designed for all levels of music consumer, it is an essential suite of software applications that will make converting, enhancing and organizing your digital music a breeze. Developed by Creative, the Creative Media Toolbox works seamlessly with your MP3 Players and Sound Blaster series of audio devices.
Auto Tag Music
The Auto Tag Music Tool utilizes state-of-the-art "MusicID" song recognition service from Gracenote to update or rectify the ID3 tags of your digital music tracks.
The Gracenote "MusicID" technology is based on the premise that each MP3 and WMA file has an audio "fingerprint", which makes each song fairly unique. The Auto Tag Music tool determines the audio "fingerprint" of the song, then compares it with the huge Gracenote music database via the internet to find a match. When a match is found, the correct ID3 tag information i.e. title, genre, artiste, album etc will be retrieved and saved onto your songs.
Your entire 5 GB collection of digital music will be properly tagged automatically, without you lifting a finger to check each and every file.
The Record Music tool is designed for people who need to record basic audio quickly and easily, whether it's music from an internet radio station, podcasts or from an external source such as a cassette or record player.
Designed for the novice users, the interface is specifically tailored for making good recordings, while being efficient, organized and easy to use.
Other functions include noise removal, separating hour-long recordings into individual tracks or even enhancing them.
The Clean-up Music tool utilizes proprietary SoundBlaster audio technology to remove noise, hisses and pops from recordings of old analog music sources such as vinyl records and cassettes.
Together with the Record Music and Split Music tool the Clean-up Music tool makes the Media Toolbox an affordable, complete, integrated and easy-to-use vinyl-to-digital audio conversion system.
Wouldn't it be easy and convenient to have your music collection in a few audio formats?
Whether it's ripping your CDs into WAV format (to retain the original CD quality) or MP3 and WMA copies for your portable players, having your digital music in multiple formats can make things so much more convenient.
The Convert Music Tool allows you to easily select a group of files, choose from WAV, MP3 or WMA format, and convert.
Manage Recording Schedule
Turn your PC into the audio equivalent of a TIVO. With the Recording Schedule tool, you can program it to start/stop a recording session at a specific time or at a daily/weekly/monthly schedule. It can even shutdown your PC after recording is done.
Using the Media Toolbox, you can rest assured that your favorite audio programs are recorded.
The Organize Music tool helps you get organized in less time by automatically creating neat folders based on the song's ID3 Tag i.e. artiste, album or genre. The music files are then moved into these newly created folders..
This 5-band, high-fidelity equalizer allows you to enhance the bass, mid and treble frequencies of your music files. Once you have adjusted your personal settings, the Equalizer effect can then be applied permanently to your music. So no matter which portable player, headphones or speakers it is played on, your music will always sound great.
Edit Music Tags
Some listeners have their own ways of categorizing their music that standard genre names won't fit in. This is normally done by editing the ID3 tags of these tracks manually.
The Edit Music Tags tool allows you to quickly and easily edit ID3 tags on a batch of music files.
Change Tag Format
The Change Tag Format tool is useful for non-English songs that are ripped or downloaded. These songs' tags can sometimes end up as garbled, illegible symbols when viewed on the PC or portable music player, usually because the ID tags were not written in the UNICODE format at the point of MP3 or WMA creation.
This tool helps to convert these tags to the UNICODE format so that the tags can be displayed properly.
