DJ's managing library with Foobar 2000?

Hi,
Any DJ's managing their library with Foobar 2000?
How do you do it?
Use any plugins?
Here are some features that I'm looking for (i'm sure foobar can do it?):
  • Find and/or sort all songs by tag
  • Pull tags from the web
  • Manage duplicates
  • Create sorting columns with tags
  • BPM detection, if possible
  • Song-key detection, if possible

A foobar enthusiast who's neither an audiophile, nor an album snob.

Ever notice whenever there is a thread mentioning track ratings, someone will inevitably come in to post that they don't use ratings or believe in rating music?

I'm using it and loving it.
About your features :
- Easy (foobar handles all types of tags, no need for plugins)
- Don't need it personally (I like my own tags)
- Edit menu > Remove duplicates
- foobar's query language + autoplaylists would allow you do do anything you'd want with tags
- Yes, there is a plugin for that : https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_bpm
- Don't need it personally
