Software Description

  • Manages your entire music collection, including vinyl, CD-R, MP3 files, etc.
  • 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 the Add CD button to get all that info without typing, you could easily enter 100 discs per hour!
  • Keeps track of music copied from CD to other media.
  • 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 field so that you can see which albums you have included on your CD-R, Minidisc etc. or as audio files on your hard drive. The current sort order's header is highlighted.
  • Unique 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, and even by Media Label/Directory!
  • Albums that are not in Freedb's database (or are on MP3 or other 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. You could use CD Czar to manage, for example, a vinyl LP collection or MP3 files on your hard drive.
  • Flexible integrated Report Writer can send reports to screen, printer, or disk file. Also, because CD Czar uses industry standard FoxPro 2.6 dBase file format, literally thousands of third party products can read CD Czar's data files including Microsoft Access and that spreadsheet you already know how to use.
  • Includes Notes (memo) field which can contain comment, info or links of any length, such as lyrics and/or extended information.
  • Year and specific Genre (not just the pre-defined list) can be used and retrieved from the online database. Media format can be selected and displayed if other than CD. Playing time for both your playlist and all tracks is computed.
  • Plays your easily created Playlist, or plays starting with any track. Can also seamlessly play albums for which you have only MP3 or other audio files.
  • Can go to a website link pertaining to the current album or artist.
  • Displays album cover art, and can be configured to do this automatically while playing an album.
  • Handles CD-Extra (Enhanced CD) discs correctly.
  • Choose between TCP/IP and HTTP connection protocols, so you can now use CD Czar behind a firewall.
  • Utility provided to import entries from the cdplayer.ini file that the Windows CD player and others use (click to download this freeini2czar utility).
  • Optional "Tip of the Day" (new with version 3.3)
  • Easy archiving of your entries.
  • Speedy, even if you have thousands of albums entered in the database!
  • Ease of use will delight the novice, while the power will satisfy the serious collector.
