Building your Music Library
1. It's not efficient to have music scattered all over a computer. We
recommend you create a \Music directory (e.g. C\Music) on any of your
computer drives and add as many subfolders as you liketo this directory.
Note that this folder is different than the Windows Music folder which is
actually in the User directory. With all music nicely contained, backup and
update operations are greatly simplified.
2. Drag-drop songs from folders in the \Music directory to the ddj-3g Instant grid.
Note this music is automatically added to your Library.
3. Play songs, select the playorder and save your first Playlist.
4. You are now ready to update your Playlist with volumes, tempi, start-stop
and many other options.
Next Step (Custom Control)
After a song is imported control and other information can be added at any time.
Most control information will automatically be saved when songs are played
and settings are altered.
Since the music industry is not consistent on dance genre names
you often will be entering your own genre. ddj-3g
has an integrated
table with many popular genres and associated tempi that is easy to
Why Drag-drop Works
Mp3 as purchased from Amazon and other sources has ID3 tag information (title, artist, album, etc.) embedded in the song.
This embedded tag information is added to your music library as songs are imported.
Note - The pro version of Dancing DJ includes the Music Organizer
which has a powerful export capability that tests all music, video and
images and copies
them and a database backup between computer or drives.
