The media world is fun, but the human brain finds it more and more difficult to embrace so much information. Our hard drives are stuffed with gigabytes of wonderful music that we plan to listen some day. And when the day comes, we are not able to find anything in that mess. The solution to this sad situation is a media collection manager. Media Catalog Studio is the one you can build upon. It tracks media files on your storage devices, such as hard-drives, floppies, external drives, CDs and so on, and classifies them in a database. It should be noted, that the software handles removable disks as easy as it works with the hard-drive. Supporting a great variety of formats, such as MP3, WMA, MP4, MPC, APE, OGG, AAC, FLAC, WAV, AVI, MPEG, WMV, it introduces order to your media files. The smart application detects duplicates, edits tags for MP3, WMA, OGG, AAC, APE, MP+/M4, and searches the database using multiple parameters. The database is very handy - you can choose between a whole array of sorting options (by artist, album, year, bitrate, frequency, genre, category, rating or any other field/category).
Media Catalog Studio Lite supports CDDB, a free online database from which mp3-tags (ID3v1, ID3v2 and Lyrics3 versions) can be exported. In addition to this, the program has its own mp3 tag editor and allows storing lyrics and pictures to the audio files.
This versatile and easy-to-use tool can be recommended to every music lover who strives to keep his media files well organized.
