What is a DAB file?
A DAB file contains a database created by OrangeCD Catalog, a program included with the OrangeCD Suite used to catalog users' digital music collections. It stores path locations to imported media files, such as .MP3, .OGG, and .WMA files, and includes metadata, such as song titles, artists, year released, label, and genre.
OrangeCD Catalog is designed to make it easier for you to organize your locally stored music in one place. The application allows you to add various media from CDs, DVDs, and digital audio files into a database, and stores references to the locations of the media in the DAB database file.
The software also references media metadata stored in the database file. This allows you to quickly search through your collection by various tags, such as artist, title, the year released, and genre.
You can create a new database with OrangeCD Catalog by selecting Database → New database.... DAB files are saved in your Music folder, by default. You can also manage the database by selecting Database → Manage database.
