Did you guys have a look at audex?
Last time I looked at both audex and kaudiocreator, I found the former to be in 
a much better state.
That's also why I put in some effort to port it to kf5 (at the time neither of 
the two was ported).

Right now the main issue with audex is that the cover fetching doesn't work 
(since Google removed a related API), but apart from that it works very well.

Of course, if you – for whatever reason – prefer kaudiocreator, feel free to 
continue with that one.
Just wanted to point out that audex exists as well. ;)
