ORGANISING YOUR MUSIC COLLECTION
This chapter describes the features built into your XMusic Digital Music Server to help you organise the music in your music library, including information about creating playlists of your favourite tracks, programming preset ‘stations’, deleting albums or tracks you no longer want to store, and naming albums, tracks, and artists.
Your Digital Music Server allows you to create your own selections of tracks, called playlists, and identify them with a name of your choice.
