v12 music explorer without adding to db like v11?

Am I missing something? in v11 I can browse a music folder and edit tags without putting it all into the library. Is this available in v12 or does everything have to be in HMM library db now?

This is not possible in Helium 12. We have focused all our efforts into the database-driven features and do not currently plan to bring this feature back.

In v9.4 similar I was able to drag and drop songs to the actual playlist, listening and editing them before adding to the library.

I'm not sure that's the same thing. In v11 I would use the Music Explorer to browse folders and HMM v11 would show all the tags which I would then edit all without having to import them into HMM database. I have an aversion to databases which require maintenance and are error prone. I already have to maintain the horrible iTunes database and I don't want to maintain an HMM database as well.

Can I do the same with HMM v12? Just have it scan a folder and display the tags and edit them without doing an explicit import into HMM v12's database (which I don't want to use)?

OK. Having used HeliumMM for 10+(?) years now, reporting bugs and getting a workflow working pretty well for me with v11, I guess I'll use v11 as long as it keeps working and then move on with MP3TAG and/or Media Monkey.

Sorry to hear that. We can't currently make any promise on bringing this feature back, I'm afraid. When sending out a survey last year we asked for the most frequently used features and this was one of the least used features unfortunately.
