The Music Browser is a complete software suite aimed at management of collections of songs. It uses a database of songs along with editorial and computed metadata. This software suite allows users to create and edit databases of music titles.
More precisely this software suite includes:

- An editorial metadata management tool. This tool allows user to edit editorial information on the artists of titles in the database. The Music Browser queries a central database of 20.000 songs and 12.600 artists (this database is referred in this ETip as musical name server - 3971). When a song/artist is recognized, all associated metadata can be automatically imported to the client side.

- A tool to compute extractors on the titles of the database. Extractors can be any executable programs, augmented with an information file (.inf) describing it sinput and output types. Additionally, extractors can be produced automatically from the extractor authoring tool - 3970.

- A query system enabling to issue complex queries on the titles and artists,

- A similarity query system: users can get similar songs according to selected parameters (timbre, genre, energy, tempo)

- A powerful playlist generation panel based on constraints: the system generates playlists using rules like: I want 50% of rock songs with an increasing energy.

All functions to create and manage database are available through this software suite.
