  • Why should you give MusicBee a try?

Besides, the tool allows you to enable automatic shutdowns, copy tags, change the viewing mode, choose configurations for the layout, turn on Auto DJ as well as apply a crossfade effect. There is a range of tagging tools that the software comes with.

    The application is lightweight so that it does not use a lot of the system resources. It needs to be mentioned that there is an online guide included.
