This articles discusses 3 ways by which new songs can be added t an existing mTrax library.
As you already know, an mTrax library points to a folder on your computer. when you create a library, mTrax scans the choosen folder and sub-folders within it to find audio files with a valid extension like mp3 or m4a. mTrax keeps track of what files are in your library in a database file for convenience and speed of access, but your audio files are never moved from their original folder or duplicated. mTrax also synchronizes your libraries periocally to make sure that audio files added or deleted from your library folder are accounted for by mTrax.
Adding new audio files (tracks) to a library amounts to adding audio files to the folder (or any of its subfolders) which the library points to. If you do not know or remember which folder a library points to, just hover the library name with your mouse and a tooltip with the folder path will pop up. You can also access this folder by right-clicking the library name and press the "Explore Library Folder" option.
