MusicZen 1.3
An easy way to organise your MP3s

MusicZen is a portable tool for moving or copying a set of MP3s, renaming and organising them into folders at the same time.

The program works by reading the tags in your MP3 files. By default these will be organised into folders for each artist, then album, but there are several other options (Artists\Years, Artists\Years\Albums, Artists, Albums, Years\Albums, Years).

Each file will be renamed along the way, which may help if you've no consistent naming structure right now. By default they'll be named using the track number and title, but this changes according to your folder structure. If you're organising files according to their year, for instance, they'll given the album name first, then the track number, and finally the song title.

You're also able to decide whether files will be copied or moved, and MusicZen will handle everything else itself. This includes sorting out duplicates; if a file it's moving already exists, then the original will be left in the source folder. And if some MP3s have no tags then they'll be saved in an "Unknown" folder.

While this sounds like it could be quite complicated, a straightforward app-like interface means it really isn't. At a minimum, all you have to do is specify the source and destination folders, and click "Organize". And even if you click the Preferences tab, everything we've mentioned here can be defined with just three buttons.

Version 1.3:
 - Added advance options to organize your files by dragging UI elements to specify the folder structure and file name.
 - Added licensing.
 - Allow files to be moved or copied w/o renaming them by leaving file name boxes empty.
 - Bug fix: issue selecting Album Artist and Artist tags.
 - Bug fix: problem creating directories for certain files.
 - Bug fix: selecting files with a higher bit rate when encountering duplicates.
 - Bug fix: multiple instances.
 - Better layout in report file (Info.txt).

Verdict:

Experienced users might wish for more configuration options, but MusicZen has enough power for most people and is exceptionally easy to use

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
