Create Metadatabase... This command collects the individual dXML, mXML and other file-specific metadata information from the selected individual sound files into a single XML table. This is done by using the corresponding Batch processing option. When the Create Metadatabase command is executed at the first time, a dialog box titled Virtual Metabase setup is launched (see the above command Define and create virtual Metadatabase...).

Query Metadatabase...


Save changes without prompting If activated, this option rejects the default prompt that would normally appear if the metadata have been modified, which can accelerate the process of adding metadata to a series of .wav files.
