MP3 Observer is a user-friendly software which serves as a quick file manager, playlist maker, CD-archiving tool, ID3 tag editor, and MP3 player.
Mass-tagging, copy, move, rename files, and Tag-Killer features are available. You can generate ID3 tags from filenames and the internet by querying freedb.org and cddb.com. The software can find duplicates, and create preview creation to listen to your imported MP3 files that were ripped from CDs without the CD in your CDROM.
You can create CD-Archives to find your MP3-CD's quickly and print CD covers of your CD-Archives. Winamp support is also available for enqueuing. The software has an internal player with crossfade capability and a BPM counter. You can view statistics, such as your top 20 genres, and use the batch function to perform tasks on multiple files simultaneously.
Intelligent tagging features include automatically assigning track numbers, padding track numbers with leading zeroes, capitalizing the first letter of each word, and replacing configured letters. The software supports Lame.exe, bladeenc.exe, mp3enc31.exe, your own free configurable program, and lame_enc.dll and bladeenc.dll for encoding and decoding.
You can grab your Audio-CD's and use CDDB-detection on www.freedb.org for automatic tagging of the created MP3-Files. The software offers export for your database in various formats (html, asci, xml, pls, m3u). The database design is open, which allows you to change the MS Access Database to your own database backend if high performance is required, or to extend your Database with MS Access Reports.
You can save, view, and search all file information, such as BPM, "last time played," your preference, or even playing situation to songs. Additionally, you can join/split mp3 files, check and repair mp3 files, create and validate SFV volumes, and view(add/remove) images included in your ID3v2 MP3 Tag. The software supports recording and playing Shoutcast Streams (compatible with new SHOUTcast servers and PLS links).
Lastly, the software offers a full multilingual interface and skins to customize the design. Overall, this software offers a comprehensive solution for managing your music library efficiently.
