We've used a file explorer to rename and restructure our digital music files for years. We select files, we right click and rename,
we cut and paste and then we curse as we find inconsistencies between artist and album names
and the names of music files. As your digital music collection grows, this manual approach becomes more error
prone and requires more effort. bliss works the other way, by allowing you to specify rules by which your music
collection is assessed and then automatically fixed.
With bliss, you specify the pattern your music folder should adopt. Here's an example:
<artist name>/<album name>/<track number>-<track name>
bliss then checks the file for each track in each album to make sure the rule is obeyed. Michael Jackson/Thriller/05-Beat It.mp3?
Fine. Michael Jackson - Thriller/Beat It.mp3? Wrong! Time to rename... which bliss can do automatically,
or you can confirm with one click for each album.
bliss works in the background, unobtrusively watching your music collection. When music is added or updated, it automatically
assesses the music against your file structure pattern, fixing what it can, and letting you know if it cannot. If you
change the name of an album using a music tagger, bliss will assess the file structure of the music with the new tags. bliss has a Web based
user interface, which means it is accessible from anywhere on your network, or even across the world.
And it's not just file structures. bliss is also an automatic album artwork finder and organiser.
