time. - Richard O.,

features that make CD Czar the first choice of music
collectors and DJs:
Single User Unlimited Version 7.0 thru PayPal online.
- Connects to the internet Freedb database (no sign-ups, no
hassles) to automatically enter information about
the CD currently in your CD-ROM drive, including album, artist,
genre, and tracks. Just put the CD in
the drive and click Add CD to get all that info

- Organizes and fully integrates your entire music
collection, including vinyl, CD-R, MP3 or other audio
files. It even integrates with Spotify and "the
cloud"! Quickly browse, order and search artists, albums,
tracks (songs) and more! Use filters to display only
selected albums (for example, one or more genre and/or artist).
- Albums that are not in Freedb's database (or are audio files,
or on cassette or other format that can't be read by the CD-ROM
drive), can probably still be entered without typing in
the tracks by using the other online music databases to which CD Czar also links. CD Czar can even use tracks lists from
fan or company websites. You can also import Winamp or Yahoo!
Music Engine playlists into CD Czar even when they don't correspond to any
physical album (the latest Winamp can even import your iPod
music), and with our free m3uMaker import music
videos (the latest free RealPlayer
can download streaming video from youTube and other sites to your PC).
And import entries from the cdplayer.ini
file that the Windows CD player and others use with our free
utility. With these features, CD Czar succeeds
when all others fail! You could use CD Czar to easily manage, for example,
a vinyl LP collection or MP3 files on your hard drive.

- One Stop Artist
Search will show all albums for any particular artist, whether
solo album or multi-artist compilation. No longer will you
have to search by both artist and track to find a
performer! Of course, you can also search by Album, Track,
Media Label/Directory/Location, or Notes. Easily find all
the albums you have of a particular artist, all the songs
you have by a particular artist in alphabetical order, and all
the versions you have of a song. Search can be on a word,
phrase, or partial word.
- Albums can be viewed in order of any of the fields in the
Album grid by simply clicking on that field's header. This
includes the Label/Directory/Location field so that you can see
which albums & tracks you have included on your CD-R,
Minidisc etc., or as audio files on your hard drive. The current
sort order's header is always highlighted.
- Easily set filter to view only albums of one genre (e.g.
classical) or by any other criteria. A
drop-down history list of filter expressions means you don't
have to retype expressions entered previously.
- You can switch from the opening Albums View (browse
collection) to a Detail View (all the information about
1 album) or to a Tracks View (one track per row).
- Tracks View will show all the versions you have of
any song, and if you click on the Artist column header you will
see all the songs by that artist in alphabetical order.
There are Report and Export options similar to those in the Report
Writer, and you can select rows for output by setting a
filter and/or "cherry-picking" even non-contiguous rows (by
holding down the ctrl key while clicking with your mouse).
These features make the Tracks View the favorite of DJs and
radio station program managers for producing playlists and
rotation lists, and there is even an option to create a file to
upload to sites like DJ
- In addition to the Quick Search on the opening window, CD Czar has a flexible integrated
Report Writer that can send a report to screen, printer,
or disk file. It can also generate a Webpage to
display your collection to your friends, or export to comma
separated values (CSV) or XML files to then
import into a spreadsheet, etc. The Report Writer can also
generate an Artist List that will show all the artists
in your collection whether on solo album or compilation, one
artist to a line (select Artist as the only output field
to get this report). And the Report Writer can generate a
Media List that will show the tracks and time used on
your Music Mixes. The Tracks View described above also has
reporting based on tracks, including creating a music file for
DJs to upload.
- Includes Notes (memo) field which can contain
comments, info or links of any length, such as record label,
composer, producer, lyrics etc.
- Year & specific Genre (not just
the pre-defined list) can be used and retrieved from the online
database. Media format can be selected and
displayed for other than CD.
