Xiklone Music Replicator Configuration

Music library (or libraries)

List of the source folders to replicate. Double-click folders in the list to edit replication settings, or add new folders to replicate by using the [Add folder] button.


  • Startup with Windows - When this option is checked, the application will start automatically when Windows is started.
  • Replicate automatically - When this option is checked, the application will start replicating audio files immediately after starting-up.
  • Logfile folder - A folder on the local hard disk where application logfiles can be written to.
  • Log level - Defines the amount of logging information in the log files ("Debug" level is the most verbose and "Errors" level gives the minimum amount of information in the logfiles).

Music library settings

Double-click the music library folder (or click the [Add folder] button) to display the following window, allowing you to setup the replication settings.


Folders to replicate

Choose, or type in, the source and destination folders. Use the configuration buttons on the right to choose existing folders on your hard disk.

Conversion settings

Use the configuration button on the right to choose the file format and conversion settings. Add DSP's (if required) by pressing the [Add DSP] button.

File copying

"Copy if source file has the same extension" will copy source files with the same extension (and minimum bitrate, optionally) as the destination format will be copied to the destination folder, instead of converting. This can be useful if the source folder contains a mix of different file formats, including the destination format.

"Copy ancilliary files" allows you to configure the extensions of files, other than audio files, (e.g. album art and playlist files) to copy through to the destination folder.


Source filter

Use the source filter parameters to select the allowed extensions, sample rate, bit depth, number of channels, modification date range and ID metadata tag contents. Source files must then meet these parameters to be processed and converted to the destination folder.

Sub-folders filter

Add sub-folders of the source directory to the list of folders to "allow" or "block" from the conversion process.
