Easily add CDs and vinyl to your database, by inserting CDs, by Artist and Title or by Barcode

Adding new albums to your personal music inventory is quick and easy. Choose from 3 methods:

  1. Just insert the CD to have the program scan its' CD-ID, then use the CD-ID to search our central online CD database (for CDs only).
  2. Enter or scan the CD barcode to search our online CD database by barcode (for CDs only).
  3. Enter the Artist and Title and select the best match from our online database (great for both vinyl and CDs).

Our Core online music database will then automatically provide

  • Full albums details like artist, title, format, label, release date, etc...
  • Full track lists, with song titles, artists and track duration info.
  • Cover images (front and back).

Music Collector reviews from customers

WOW!
I just wanted to say a great big thank you for your software packages. I’ve been using them for just over a month now and OMG I wish I had discovered them earlier – it just took too long for my old PC to finally die and for me to no longer be able to use CD Trustee!
WOW! I can’t believe how well your systems are designed to work both at PC level, mobile phone app and synced in the cloud. I’m very impressed. I have almost 1,000 CD’s to catalogue into my database and I can’t believe how much easier it is to just scan the barcode using the CLZ Music app and syncing it into the cloud and back onto my PC. The only time I seem to have to use the CD insert in the PC (rather than scanning barcode) is when the CD doesn’t exist in your database. I find it easier to manually enter it via Music Collector on the PC. I also use Music Collector when a CD has multiple discs as I like to keep a separate log for each physical disc.
At the moment I need to finish off another personal project before I get stuck into updating my CD’s in Music Collector/CLZ Music. I will be like a little kid in a chocolate shop when I get started.
Thanks again and wish you continued success with your products. — Jim V (Australia) on Music Collector

Music Collector
This is not an email regarding any problems with the subject matter, just simply a note of thanks for creating and maintaining this service. My collection has grown beyond what I had intended when I started many years ago and your database is a major part of how I can easily access any title with a few key strokes as opposed to heading into the "vault."
So thank-you, keep up the great work and above all else keep smiling, if for no other reason than to make others wonder why. — Darren Jollimore (Canada) on Music Collector

Great products!
I've been trialing Music Collector for a bit and it is awesome. I can add notes and whatnot to my items. I decided to take the dive in and purchase Music Collector. Been a long time user of Game Collector and love it. Thank you for the great products! — Ryan Backlin (USA) on Music Collector

Truly glad I purchased your program
I have been using Music Collector today and it is the most awesome aftermarket software I have ever used! There is a little bit of a learning curve but not too much for experienced windows users. It has all the features (and more) that I would want in a software of this type and is beyond anything I would have written or developed on my own. I once made a CD database in ACCESS for myself and it took many months to populate my limited fields with HAND-TYPED Titles and Tracks! (at least it would sort album titles/tracks by alpha). I love the CD-Read feature especially but have only really needed the barcode adder for the most part.
The reason I bought this software is to see if I have a particular song (usually on some compilation CD of greatest hits of the 80's or something) where there are various artists. Do I have a copy of "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers?....well this software will find it if its in there to be found! The whole point being not to buy duplicates so much..as to find if I have it already (and odds ARE I DO!!)...But where? On What CD Might it appear???? This program EASILY solves the problem I wanted to solve, and as far as I am concerned is money well spent, and that sir, is the very definition of VALUE! — Ron Carey (USA) on Music Collector

Been using your software for 10 years now
Just wanted to say congratulations to all of you at Collectorz.com on your 25th anniversary! I started using your software when CD Trustee closed up shop. They recommended moving my database over to your software. I did and haven't regretted it. Keep up the good work! — Bruce Baer (USA) on Music Collector

Congratulations on your 25th anniversary
Just a note to say how much I appreciate the work you have done. My wife and I started cataloging our record collection back in the late 60's by hand on card files. Crazy. We did not get too far, about 100 plus cards. More crazy. As computers came into daily play I kept looking and trying several systems. Some came close but... I even tried using a regular data base program. Not too good and I am not a programmer. The closest, for our needs, was "Classical Music" (I think) by a doctor in the UK. I tried one of your earlier editions too. I am happy to say I tried yours again a few years back and was more than pleased. I spent a winter entering all my records and CD's. Being a two finger typist I was really impressed by the automation of most of the entries.
In short, congratulations and may your innovating work continue. Cheers and best wishes to all the crew — Martin Archer-Shee (Canada) on Music Collector

Trouble-free program
I have loved using this program -- gets a little bit addictive. I appreciate that the program is trouble-free, but also that when I do need an answer, I feel that I am on a first-name basis with the top guy. That hasn't happened at Google for a long time!
When is the last time I came away from an encounter with a tech company actually feeling better? The last time I contacted Collectorz, that's when! — Art Newman (Canada) on Music Collector
