Opening the settings window
First, open the Music Replicator settings window, either by double-clicking the Xiklone Music Replicator icon on the desktop, or via the context (right-click) menu from the system tray as shown below.
The settings window will be displayed showing the general configuration options.
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.
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.
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.
"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.
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.
Add sub-folders of the source directory to the list of folders to "allow" or "block" from the conversion process.
