When you record music from the radio or streaming services with Audials, you receive a music file with tags such as song title, artist, genre, album, year. Audials automatically sorts the songs by artist and genre. With the music manager, you can change the tags for many songs at once. Like this, your music treasures are quickly rearranged in the way that suits you best. There are several possibilities for retagging.
All steps described in this article can be done in "My Music" in the "Music" navigation item.
Changing tags of a song
You have recorded a song and it is displayed in the top right corner of Audials.
1. Click on the song so that its cover is displayed enlarged in the bottom right corner.
Then click on the pencil icon to edit its tags.
2. Now you see this view. Here you can change the title, album, etc., or assign the song to another genre. Your changes are highlighted in color.
3. When you are done editing, click on the pencil icon again to save your changes.
If you have changed the genre or artist, Audials will sort the song into the appropriate genre or assign it to the matching artist.
Changing tags of a complete genre
1. For example, you want to sort all songs of the genre "Pop rock" into "Rock". Click on the genre you want to rename, in this case, "Pop rock". It will then appear in Audials in the lower right corner.
2. Click on the pencil icon to edit the tags of the whole genre. Your changes are highlighted in color.
3. Click on the pencil icon again to save your changes.
4. Now all songs are assigned to the new genre "Rock".
Changing tags of an artist
In the same way, you can also select an artist in the column to the right of the genre column and rename all his songs.
Using the drag and drop function
To assign only certain songs to another artist or genre, hold down the CTRL key and click on the desired songs to highlight them.
Then drag them with the mouse to the desired genre or artist. Alternatively, you can also retag an entire album by drag & drop.
