Getting started is really easy - just add any tracks (or folders containing tracks) that the software can choose from, and then click "Create Playlist"!


The software can save you a significant amount of time - you can have a playlist within a few seconds without having to put the items together yourself. Just add the tracks you wish to make available for use in your playlist and then click Create Playlist to generate a new list.
