How to organize my music collection?

Introduction

For many people, music has become an essential part of their everyday life. Music album collection reflects aspects of personality which can't be seen or expressed. But when the quantity of your discs overwhelms some boundaries, keeping it in order turns out to be a problem. In such situations, special software solutions can be pertinent and make the music organizing process much more enjoyable.

Let's take a look at one of the most distinctive representatives of such software, a music manager called Musicnizer. Here we will discuss some basic helpful features concerning music albums organizing.

Step 1: Download and install the program.

Download Musicnizer to a known location. Run the downloaded setup and follow on-screen instructions to install the application.

Step 2: Start the program. Create a new database.

After the program starts, you will see a demo album database and Musicnizer will prompt you to create a new one. Click "File" - "New database", choose a name and a destination folder for your music collection database, hit "Save". The contents of all windows will refresh showing no records.

At this point you see the main window of the organizer, so take a look at the toolbar above. The "Add album" button begins your journey into the world of music, click it and let's watch how it happens. A new window appears, offering to choose among different methods: by title, by barcode, from Audio CD, from files and folders. Choose the method that is most convenient for you, depending on a type of media. One step further Musicnizer will look for information on the internet about the added album, and here you can define an online database to use by clicking the "Options..." link.

As you can see, each entry is editable and the downloaded info can be re-entered or adjusted according to your needs. But let's concentrate on our problem of organizing and take a look at some specific options:
