Record Manager is a program to manage records and/or any other sound carrier. The program allows the management of singles, long playing record (LP), CDs, MCs and other sound carriers.

The adding of new titles is very easy and it is designed to add great masses of titles in short time. Depends only in how fast you can type Smile. Especially the adding of LPs was designed to be very fast and easy.

Since version 0.8 you can add an audio CD completely automatic. Precondition is, that an audio CD is in your local CD drive and that there exists a CDDB entry on one of the remote servers. As it was possible before, there can be a local CDDB file also. In this case the local file is prefered.
