Once a directory is added from the option Folder in DéKiBulle, then we can set DéKiBulle to add new files to its database automatically. However, it has no sorting option, i.e. to sort by artist, or albums, in fact there is no ranking at all. Simply add the music directory and the software replicates the folder structure as they are, and will not try to sort by artist, album. This is handy when ID3 tags are not complete. DéKiBulle also comes with a Tag Editor, to activate it just select some music and right click on it to display a small popup menu from which one can open the MetaTags Editor, save a playlist… With DéKiBulle it is also possible the customization of the of the names of songs displayed and this can be done from Song Names option.
