    Hi All,

    I am looking to dump all my music con a hard drive and play it through the computer, and off to other sources when I can (i.e. TV and amp)

    What I am looking for is a recommendation on software that can sort all the music out, with titles, cobvers, genres, etc and play them as I choose.

    FREE would of course be good, but I am willing to pay for the best

    Anyone help?

    Thanks

    Craig

    On Mac, I obvisouly use iTunes.

    On Windows, I used to use Musicmatch.....but found it a bit slow/resource hungry (as Windows iTunes is)

    I now use MediaMonkey on the PC. There is a free version, or a paid for version with extras. I'm finding the free vesion okay for my needs.

    Another vote for Media Monkey; a big help to me recently when i wanted to modify the tags of all 50Gb's of my music to add track numbers to titles. Spent lots of time looking at various apps but found this the easiest and best for me. Very good at updating Meta's with Album art as well

    I use Ultimate Jukebox, which is pretty good and simple to use.

    Get version 8.0 or 8.2 of MMJB - these are the best WRT functionality and not being too resource hungry. The free versions are one of the best "free" versions and don't lose too much functionality compared to the paid version.

    Try www.oldversion.com for these older ones. Don't get v10 MMJB as its an awful bit of bloatware that acts as a sales portal for their online music business.

    Another program worth looking at are Winamp 5.3 - though I found it very slow at ripping CDs compared to MMJB.

    I would suggest you play with a few as everyone I have ever spoken to has their own preferences and won't change without very good reason!
