Using AudioRanger

  1. Select the audio files you want to fix in AudioRanger. If possible, make sure to select complete albums.
  2. Click the "Automatic tagger" toolbar button.

Method 1: Using a destination folder (recommended)

  1. If you haven't done so far, set up a destination folder within AudioRanger by clicking "Configure destination folders" within the main app menu. This will define where your sorted audio files should be moved (or copied) to, and how they should be organized and renamed.
  2. Select the audio files you want to organize/rename in AudioRanger. If possible, make sure to select complete albums. Also, make sure that the existing tag information (artist, album, title, etc.) is already correct at this point. You may want to use the automatic tagger to fix the tags of your audio files.
  3. Within the "File" menu, either click "Move to destination folder" or "Copy to destination folder". This will move (or copy), organize, tag and rename your audio files in one single operation, according to the settings of the destination folder.

Method 2: Manual file renaming

  1. Select the audio files you want to rename in AudioRanger.
  2. Within the "Tools" menu, click "Rename files".
  3. Select a rename pattern from the dropdown menu boxes, for example Artist - Album - Track number - Title (or whatever rename pattern you prefer).
  4. Check the preview to make sure everything is correct. Then, click the "OK" button.

Duplicate audio files are automatically removed (or, more precisely, actually moved to the dedicated duplicates folder) when using the "Move to destination folder" or "Copy to destination folder" feature within the "File" menu.

If you haven't done so far, the app will ask you to set up a destination folder. This will define where your sorted audio files should be moved (or copied) to, and how they should be organized and renamed.

You have multiple different options here:

  • Fix your songs by manually searching for the correct album within the online music database.
  • Extract tags from file and folder names by using highly configurable name patterns.
  • Enter the correct information manually. You can batch-edit the tags of thousands of audio files at once.
