Love the software
"Really love the software. I've been using it for several years and there's no other way I could manage my 10,395 albums/CDs (and counting)."
Chris Kouzes (USA)
A pleasure to work with
" I'm collecting vinyls
since 1961 and through all the years I've been trying to organize my collection many many times but with no big results. Only the CLZ-software provides all a real vinyl freak can ask for and I can imagine that your software would also be very practical for professionals.
It's a daily pleasure to work with!!!
Günter Hein (Germany)
"Music Collector identifies audio CDs so much better than everything else I have tried. The data returned is so much cleaner, and so much more consistent than everything else that I wish it would rip CDs as well - then I could ditch iTunes, dBPoweramp etc."
Gordon Findlay (New Zealand)
500+ of my CDs catalogued
"I now have all 500+ of my CDs catalogued and now I can start to figure out which MP3s I have ripped and haven't.
Thanks again for such great products. "
Sara Khurody-Downs (USA)
"I have a vinyl collection
....close to 2,000....accrued since the 50's. Have a USB Turntable that converts them to CD's. Definitely very manual project....but the joy of listening to them again...and often remembering where you were when you bought....is worth every minute..."
Larry Nuese (USA)
"I am continually surprised by the depth of material in your databases. I have just added 10 CDs to Music Collector, 3 of which didn't get recognised by iTunes, and 2 more of which were garbled by iTunes (a piece of junk that). Collectorz.com had all of them, in sane formats. Thanks."
Gordon Findlay (New Zealand)
REALLY enjoy it
"REALLY enjoy the music collector! It really is a great program. I have hundreds of CDs and it was difficult at times to find the right CD. Now, that problem has been solved thanks to your program!
VERY happy with the program and your company!!
"Thanks for the music catalogue programme been after a database for years and this is fantastic."
Tony Taylor (United Kingdom)
Quantum leap forward
"I've been using Music Collector since Ver.10. I have to admit the Cobalt
upgrade is a quantum leap forward. The program (both earlier & current) is
fun to use, utilitarian, intuitive, and just plain great. It does not sap
system resources either. The designers certainly don't sit on the sidewalk;
they keep pushing ahead to improve Music Collector for the user.
of the user, I've rarely seen user support like I experience with Music
Collector. I recently mixed up my licenses across two different user
registrations on the website and Sytske was quick to fix everything and
pull me back to shore; and it was a mess too! Sometimes, it only takes
minutes for a response and I don't think it's ever been longer than 24hrs,
unless during a major holiday or something.
I'd highly recommend Music
Collector use for any music enthusiast. My main collection is 45s & LP, too
(I'm 65 years young), not just the formats of today like CDs & MP3."
Jim - Springfield, Ohio (USA)
Build the library
"It took me long to come to the final decision (to build the library for my
music in CDs), but when I came to it, I knew that I need serious guide in
this world of long searches, hunts and cataloging. I have landed in your
page and here I am - the one of your customers. It is almost a year when I
am seriously building my collection (with your support) and today would
like to share the "new" house for my CDs. It is not much, only 300+, but I
am very proud to be in your family.
Mantas Azusienis (Lithuania)
Flexibility of the database
"I am impressed with the level of support you offer, with the flexibility of the database, and with the fact that it actually seems to be updated quite regularly (unlike almost all the other music database software
Frank Little (United Kingdom)
"I think your software is great, and I'm enjoying working with it. It's going to take me quite a while to catalog my huge (5,000+) CD collection
and then I'll start on the vinyl
. Hope I get it all done before I die!
Thanks again for your hard work at making this a fun program to use!"
Kevin Rowe (USA)
The software is fantastic
"As a CD Trustee user for over 10 years I was hesitant at first to
switch software, but with an upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit my hand was
The user interface with allowed me to upload my exiting database to
Music Collector was flawless and easy.
The software is fantastic and I anticipate many years of use.
Bobby Caliendo (USA)
Music collection software
"I ordered the music collection software
last week. Over the weekend i downloaded it onto my computer using dialup. I've only put a few items on it but it knew my Japanese ELO CD (with bonus track), but thought the new Monkees deluxe reissue of "Justus" was the original.
So far so good. Only 2,000 more CDs, LPs and CD Singles to go.
Will definately buy the DVD and Comic Book software
when I buy my new computer."
David Lock (USA)
"This piece of software is fantastic.
My collection contains jazzrock and fusion..cd and vinyl
. And every album is find in the database. Wauw! "
Joost Royackers (Netherlands)
So a perfect software
"I would only say that the Music Collector Pro database
with CLZ are outstanding, amazing, fantastic...and so on. I've never seen before so a perfect Software like this!
I am a dancemusic collector since 1985 and for me must be a database extremly flexible what exactly your software are!
Congratulation for this.
The Pro version are very fair priced and worth every cent!!!
I have 4 hours, but i can't live without it anymore!"
Fabio Ricci (Switzerland)
"Hi. I downloaded the free trial of your Music database
and am very impressed. Love the scanning function. The database search is very wide reaching.
Love the fact that Various artist I tested the search function and love that albums can be entered with search ability on song & artist.
I had been using Access. i'm Very impressed."
Peter Xuereb (Australia)
"I am 55 years of age, I have been collecting music - LPs and CDs
the late 1960s and Collectorz Music Collector is a godsend for me.
It is absolutely wonderful software and I'm thrilled to own it!"
Craig S. Adams (USA)
Totally Awesome Program!!
"I've been collecting music
(LPs, 78s, CDs, some 45s and Reel to Reels) since 1956 and still have most of my collection...I have never had such fun entering the info and then checking out the results....You guys are just above and beyond my wildest expectations...
...and then there's the support...Athan-Jon, Sonny, Chris...Hey, the whole crew bends over backwards to make sure that everything works properly and even an old codger like myself can understand and thereby enjoy this "Totally Awesome Program!!!"
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart....I've waited 56 years for something like this...I'm glad that I'll have at least a few more years to enjoy it!!!!"
James Shepard (USA)
"I've been happily using your product for about ten years now (the nerdy joy of entering a record into the database
is almost as good as listening to it)."
Greg Peterson (USA)
Such wonderful software
"I just recently bought the Music Collector Pro software for my Mac and have started entering of all my vinyls
and CD's. The more I go through the process, the more I discover, and the more I realize there is a lot more to learn.
Actually my collecting started approximately 62 years ago
-- time flies, but the music has always been rewarding. When I get finished with the music aspect . . . perhaps I'll start on the DVD's.
Thank you for such wonderful software, as it fulfills a wish for cataloging all my music
and having the flexibility and convenience of locating exactly what I want . . . and when I need it.
My best to your company, and I wish you continued good success."
Russell Page (USA)
"Dear Alwin & Co,
I'm very proud to know you are also a collector.
I have 5 thousands CDs and many jazz magazines, books and DVDs. It's my dream to include all my items on Collector File. In my opinion, it is the most incredible file music in years..
At the same time, one of my great friends also started to use your program for his collection. He adquired a license to use it.
I have 64 years old and I love jazz since 1959."
Chico Flavio Rodrigues (Brazil)
1,155 CDs are catalogued
"After one week 1,155 CDs are catalogued
, but there are still 1,300 waiting.
It has been a close encounter with the collection
Tor Hauken (Norway)
Makes it so much easier
"I finally finished cataloging my cd collection
(1,993 in total - A-Z only). It has taken about 5 months off and on. Having a small break before I tackle the compilation CDs, there are hundreds of them, LOL.
One thing I did discover while adding the CDs is that there we have so many cds that we had double, triple and sometimes quadruple copies of the same album (we will be having a garage sale one day so we will be able to sell them then)
BTW I love this program, makes it so much easier to get the job done."
Jackie Russett (Australia)
Thank you a 100 times
"Thank you a 100 times - I have been a Mac user for over 10 years and could not find a decent programme to catalogue my music cd
or movie collection - have over 4,000 music cds and 2,000 movies. :-D Thanks again for creating these programmes."
Margaret Lunel (India)
I love Music Collector
"I love Music Collector I've used it since V7! The only database
I've seen where I can share online....my iPhone and store on my PC.
Can't wait to see V10....where are the screen shots? ;-)"
Jim Bolden (USA)
"Got the Music one from you today. Very impressed about the database
! Even very old cd covers, of very seldom cd´s, available.
Checked out a lot of programs before, than found your one through an ad."
Steffen Schade (Germany)
Wow am i amazed

David Mcnally (USA)
Loving Music Collector Pro
"I am loving Music Collector Pro, I started cataloging my cds
I think it is going to take til this December to get the rest done :)"
Jackie Russett (Australia)
This is a GREAT idea!
"I have some 2,000 cd's and maybe 3,500 vinyl titles
This is a GREAT idea!"
Jim Boxley (USA)

Roger Grover (USA)
Keep track at all times

It is so Awesome that I can keep track of my collection
at all times. It keeps growing and I enjoy it gracefully. "
Todd Simon (USA)
"Entered my CD-collection and LP's
, now halfway through my 7" vinyl collection
Music Collector is and remains amazing! Only once have I needed support and even that was great."
Frans van der Mark (Netherlands)
Easy to use
"I just wanted to say that I bought the Music and Movie versions of your software. I'm finding them so easy to use that I'm thinking of purchasing the Book Collector version.
Any CD on your database
that doesn't have the cover artwork I'm able to get a copy from Google images 99% of the time.
Thanks again for such easy to use and affordable software."
Bruce Day (Australia)
What a time saver
"Lovin the music collector!
Being a husband of a professional musician we are always looking that certain piece. So I have cataloged all our cds, records,tapes
and all digital audio all I one package.
What a time saver! Thanks!"
Steve Kutz (USA)
Quick and easy to use
"Just a quick "hello", and THANK YOU for what looks to be a WONDERFUL product!
I've wanted to organize my collection
of Early Music for some time and didn't know to turn. And with nearly 2,000 CDs, I was losing track of what I have, and where I have it!
I've started entering my CDs into the database
and find it's very quick and easy to use!
I'm really enjoying myself, too!
Thanks again, and it's nice to know there are so many "helping hands" available if I need assistance."
John Nowacki (USA)
The Most Useful Software
"With over 2,000 CDs and LPs catalogued
, I now have to concentrate on a similar number of 12" & 7" singles - defnitely the most useful software I have."
Jonathan Richard Wyatt (United Kingdom)
Lost Without It
"Great application. I definitely recommend it for anyone who has more than a few CDs or DVDs.
With over 1,400 CDs and 1,000 DVDs, I would be absolutely lost without it."
Mark Coggins (USA)
How Did I Ever Manage?
"I've been using Music Collector for a short while and I agree with the statement "How did I ever manage without it?".
I guess that now I'm done with buying duplicate CDs... :)"
Paulo Roberto Perez (Brazil)
"I've been using Music Collector for over a year and love it.
I have 9,813 CDs catalog'd
to date. I started using Movie Collector a few months ago and have about 1,100 input thus far.
Order in my disorder
"I HAD to say to Collectorz Team that I've just upgraded Music Collector to version 9.0 Pro and it's fantastic.
I've been using Music and Book Collector for many years now and every new version is a surprise and always beyond expectations. This new version that can link the database to my music files
is what I
needed. Absolutely GREAT.
Thank you so much for putting order in my disorder ;-) "
Luca Richard de Bella, Italy
Thanks for 2 great products
"I just wanted to let you know I have been a user of Music collector and Movie collector for several years. I have 2 large collections
and am very pleased with your products.
Music collector has 1,234 CDs (counting box sets as a single CD) and Movie Collector has 1,538 titles
(counting box sets there is 2,230 DVD's in my collection).
Both Collectorz run fine with that many entries."
"I am yet another of your many very satisfied customers. I use Music, MP3, and Book Collector -- but Music Collector is the one I use daily.
Apart from the sheer professionalism of the program's design, I find the User Defined fields really useful. I have nearly 700 CDs, and I like to listen to each of them within a reasonable period.
(Otherwise, why keep them?)
To help me with this, I have renamed Album Text1 to "Last played", and Album Text2 to
"Times played". Each time I play an album I record the date (e.g. 20090806) and increase
"Times played" by one. That way, I can tell which CDs haven't been listened to for a long time
by sorting them on the "Last played" column in Album View, and I can tell which ones I have
played only once or twice since getting them with the filter "Times Played less than 3".
My family think I'm obsessive. Maybe I am. But it helps me to enjoy my collection!"
Does everything I need & more
"I can't tell you how much I love this software. It does everything I need and much more.
I've always wanted to catalog all my CD's and tried to create my own database. However, I kept having to add fields and go back to edit every single CD. About 2 years ago, I gave up.
I've only cataloged about 150 in Music Collector, but, it's been a breeze. I know I've yet to discover all the ways it can manipulate the data, but, I'll get there.
I really like that it doesn't eat gobs of memory and there's no 'terminate-stay-ready' embedded in the software and sitting in my systray. (I hate those things.) Simple to use straight-forward software. I'm in heaven.
I believe this is going to save me a great deal of money, as I have a tendency to purchase duplicate CD's because I can't remember if I already own it. The online music retailers are going to be very unhappy and so will my friends, to whom I give all my duplicates.
Now, I can see the light at the end of the CD cataloging tunnel and it's not an oncoming train. I hope you get rich off of this; you deserve it for saving my CD collecting butt!
Thank you !"
I am impressed
"I just spent some time scanning in about 150 of my 700 CDs.
Your software is amazing.
I have just started exploring it and already I am impressed. As an engineer and programmer, I understand the complexity of good database and user interface design.
WELL DONE !!!
I am looking forward to finding new features as I go further.
Keep up the good work."
I had to write to say Bravo!
"I recently purchased your Music Collector Pro software and after entering about 250 CDs (a fraction of my collection
) I had to write to tell you how pleased I am with the database
So far, there's not a single thing that I haven't been able to achieve.
Too often people take good products for granted so I had to write to say Bravo!"
What a wonderful program
"I have to tell you what I think about Music Collector.
I looked for a program that I could understand and would not be time consuming to keep track of my hundreds of CDs. I looked at several and when I found yours had a free
trial, I thought that is wonderful I could try it before buying it.
I was very pleased but I thought one thing would make it ideal,the ability to use my Cuecat scanner I got from RadioShack and had no use for until now. I checked the latest on your website and found to my delight it might be possible to use the Cuecat (it is the old type without a USB connection,it
splices into the keyboard connection) so I plugged it in and tried it, The first try didn't work but the next one did-WOW!
I knew I had to pay for the license key to get unlimited use as I used up the free trial very soon!
I cannot thank you enough but I will tell my friends what a wonderful program you created and urge them to try it then buy it."
Love the Music Collector
"I just wanted to let you know, that I absolutely love the Music Collector. I need to check out the video collector also. I have over 1,000 CDs to catalog
first. Thanks for you fine work!!!
I really don't know exactly what I have and what I need. Your collection
will help me clear that up. It's terrible getting over 60 and losing your long & short term memory.
