Importing Library Data From Mp3 Tags

Many people don’t know the difference between the mp3 file name and mp3 “tags” (also known as: meta-data). If you’re running an internet radio station, it is important to not only know the differece, but to have the correct tag data entered into the Title and Artist fields. This video explains.

Mp3 TAGS EXPLAINED

 

Before importing mp3 meta-data (tags) into Music 1, it is super-important that you check to ensure that each and every audio file is correctly “tagged”. You don’t want to import a lot of songs with the title of: Track 1 and the artist as:  Unknown Artist.

MediaMonkey is a media player and a neat piece of software. It is a nice interface that allows you to quickly scan your audio folders and spot song files that are in need of tag editing. Additionally, it can export song data to a text file of data that can then be readily imported into M1. The basic version is free and can be downloaded from MediaMonkey.com

Here are three videos showing how to use it.

Converting Tracks From One Type To Another 
When Music 1 imports library data, it tries to get Song onto Song Cards and everything else onto Non-Music cards. What goes onto a Non-Music card is:  1) any audio that is 60 seconds or less; 2) any record that is missing data in the Artist field. Sometimes mistakes are made and so M1 puts a song onto a Non-music card and vice/versa. When that happens, the card can be ‘converted’ from one type to the other.
