MAGIX AudioID

The more music you collect on your computer, the more difficult it is to make sure each song is organized with title, genre, artist, and album names. MAGIX AudioID's automatic identification system makes this manageable. Instead of searching by only file name or keyword, MAGIX AudioID searches the complete file. MAGIX does this by using fingerprint technology from the Fraunhofer Institute (developer of the MP3 file format). MAGIX attaches missing information to individual music files at the touch of a button. It even cleans incomplete ID3 tags of whole music archives. Users can also easily identify unknown track names from Internet radio recordings and personal compilations.

Podcast and Webradio Recorder

MAGIX MP3 Maker 11 turns every PC into an Internet radio and Podcast recorder. The free MAGIX Podcast Service is integrated into the software. It helps you easily find podcasts on any topic, for example: stocks, Formula One, or even flirting tips, which can also be automatically downloaded, burned on disc or transferred onto your mobile player. Furthermore, you can easily submit your own, self made podcasts into the MAGIX Podcast Service for free.

MP3 Maker 11 makes searching for Internet radio extremely easy. Simply enter the name of the artist or song, and the program does the rest. Once you've found your selection, MAGIX MP3 Maker 11 downloads the audio files and saves them onto your hard drive. You can then download the files onto you mobile device with the click of the mouse.
