Picard / Documentation Products > MusicBrainz Picard > Picard documentation MusicBrainz Picard documentation You will need to download MusicBrainz Picard first. You can also check a basic tutorial Clustering Start with opening individual music files or directories by dragging them into the left-hand pane. Once Picard finishes processing the files, press the "Cluster" button. Lookup & querying MusicBrainz Automatic lookup Select the cluster or file you want to lookup and use the "Lookup" button in the toolbar. Picard will query MusicBrainz with your existing metadata and attempt to find the best possible match. Scanning (fingerprinting) files Instead of using release-oriented and metadata-dependent lookups, Picard can try and tag your files 1-by-1 based on their audio fingerprint. Manual lookup If you want granular control over how your files are being tagged, or the above methods provided inaccurate results (or no results), the alternative is to manually lookup and choose the correct release(s) for your files.

What is MusicIP? MusicIP is much more than a conventional Playlist Generator. MusicIP is a clever piece of software written in the 2000s that analyses and fingerprints your music library to try to understand the makeup of each music track. So instead of endlessly scrolling through your library, trying to find something to listen to, you can simply select a track (the seed track) then based on MusicIPs understanding of your library, generate a playlist of tracks that blend together. This is far more than a genre based mix, as it will select tracks that are similar in composition. History of MusicIP in a Nutshell MusicIP was originally called MusicMatch and was aimed at b2b and b2c. Is MusicIP still relevant in the world of clouds, iTunes Genius etc Strangely enough MusicIP may well have been ahead of its time. PUIDs, GUIs and Wonderful things To analyse a track can be a CPU heavy task similar to video encoding. MusicIP GenPUID Next Page... MusicBrainz - The Open Music Encyclopedia
