Party and Sleep modes for optimized user experience
Party Mode is a feature of MediaMonkey that prevents any modifications to your files, or to the software configuration, while Sleep mode allows you to configure the time to play the songs, whether to shut down the program at the end, or gradually fade the volume.
File organizer with support for categories
You can organize files in many categories that include Music, Podcast, Playlists, Media Servers, and Net Radio (access to SHOUTcast and Icecast radio).
Alter track properties and burn data
Track managing has many useful features such as editing track properties and album information, album art, auto-tag from filename, converting formats, and others. In addition, you can burn an audio CD, data CD/DVD/BD, or erase rewritable discs.
Rich suite of configuration settings
The Options menu has countless settings customizations you can use to modify the application and configure supported extensions, plugins, downloads, file tagging and a lot more, all designed to fit the needs and requirements of the more demanding users.
A powerful and reliable media manager
To sum things up, MediaMonkey is a complete audio management solution that provides everything one would need to organize a vast music collection. Besides the playback capabilities and numerous configuration possibilities, this program supports Winamp plugins and comes with a useful 4x CD/DVD ripper and burner.

The GOLD edition also comes with built-in disc burner (supports up to 48x), file monitor, automatic library organizer and automatic tag editor.
LIMITATIONS IN THE UNREGISTERED VERSIONUpgrading to Gold version, you can benefit from the following extra features: Automatically lookup Artwork and lyrics so that you don't have to. MediaMonkey can also download the metadata without updating the tags so that it isn't saved until you approve. Find music with advanced search functionality that digs through your collection to find tracks according to almost any criteria that you can think of. Search for Composer, Year, Beats per minute; find Lyrics, etc. and stop pulling your hair out trying to find music you know you have. Encode unlimited MP3s without having to manually install a new MP3 encoder (the free version of MediaMonkey includes a time-limited LAME MP3 encoder. If you’re so inclined, you can manually replace it with the free LAME encoder, or you can just upgrade to MediaMonkey Gold). Catalog your physical CDs and use the Virtual CD feature to keep track of what CDs you own and at the same time see which subset of tracks from those CDs are copied to your hard drive. Instead of tracking your CDs and tracks separately, the virtual CD function gives you an integrated view.. Import and save audio tracks from Audio CDs and MP3 CDs with unprecedented flexibility using the Virtual CD. It allows you to sample tracks from various sources, select which ones you want to import, and then import and save the files in a single operation. Create Previews, short samples of audio tracks, that you can use when trying to decide which audio files you want to add to your collection. Use a Sleep Timer to play your music, gradually fade it over a set period of time, and then turn off your PC — perfect for listening to tunes before you go to sleep. Burn CDs at the maximum speed permitted by your hardware.
