Music Collector reviews from customers

December 10, 2018
Superb
I have had the Music Collector on my desktop for several years now, but just never got around to loading it up with my CD's and iTunes music. For the last couple of weeks, I have been going through all kinds of things in my house, scanning to my server, purging, tossing things I don't need anymore, etc., -- something I've been trying to do since I retired.

So ... I finally got to my CD's and Music Collector. Since the CD's were in another room, I decided to use my iPhone 6 to just scan them. Then I discovered that I needed to download the app (which I apparently hadn't done before). Then I discovered that it was a trial, and that I needed to buy the full app for $14.95 to get unlimited titles, which I did. Then I was just looking at emails from last week and discovered that I could have gotten the app for $9.99. Sheesh! I have now discovered that I need to get better at staying on top of these things. Especially with your software, which is superb! I guess you could say that yesterday was a day of discovery for my Collector usage. — Steve Westmoreland (USA) on Music Collector

The program is a marvel
Just finished installing Music Collector,
Loaded my old .muc file which converted perfectly although I have miss placed my cover images? About 3/4 downloaded OK the rest I downloaded using the edit function and search.
Really very easy, thanks a million, program is marvelous. — John Edwards (Australia) on Music Collector

Absolutely delighted
I have been a customer for many years and have especially enjoyed Movie Collector. I am absolutely delighted that now, with updates to Music Collector and associated apps, I have been able to import my music database into Music Collector and can use it as my primary reference for the collection.
I began collecting music in high school, and built my first database on an IBM mainframe (using keypunch machines) to catalog each album in 1969. I printed the list out on greenbar paper, and could only update it infrequently. I was able to optically scan this printout and import it into a dBase data base in the 80s, and that served me well for a number of years. Then when I went to Macs and moved the dBase data into FileMaker, and from there I was able to import the entire collection (some 2500 albums on tape, cassette, LP, and CD) into Music Collector via Connect.
THANK YOU for making this possible! — Jan Smith (USA) on Music Collector

Invaluable
I have over 15,000 individual cd’s and vinyl records. This software has been invaluable in organizing and managing my collection. The times I have needed to use support they have been very responsive and helpful. — Craig Wise (USA) on Music Collector

Catalog your vinyl collection
This is a great app to catalog your vinyl collection. Plus the fact that you can download the app to your phone helps tremendously when you are out purchasing vinyl and can't remember all of the albums you have. — Steven Mathews (USA) on Music Collector

Wonderful archiving tools
I bought my very first 45 rpm record around 1963 and I still have it today. I've been collecting records ever since but I really didn't start collecting seriously until the 1980's. At that time I began going to record conventions, buying records through mail order catalogs and from the classified ads in the back of Goldmine Magazine. I collect vinyl record albums and 45rpm records. I lost track of the number of records I have but would guess around 2000 record albums and around 3000 45rpm records. I mostly concentrate on the 45rpm records today because the albums take up too much room.

I began archiving my collection in the 1980's using a typewriter. You talk about time consuming...this was before personal computers of course. I still have those pages of records that I typed back then. I eventually stopped archiving them because it took so long to do. When I got my first computer in 1992, I retyped my record archives into the computer which took just as long as the typewriter but at least I could print them out on my printer. All through the 1990's I wished that there was a software program that would make it easier to archive my collection.

When I finally discovered Collectorz.com, I knew my wish had come true. A software program to keep track of my records. Although I collect mostly old original vinyl 45rpm records and have to manually type them in, it's still 100% better than when I was archiving them using the typewriter. I love the fact that I can include an actual photo of my records in the archive too.

I want to thank Alwin and his associates for producing such wonderful archiving tools and offering the BEST customer support on the internet today. I know I have been a pain in the neck several times with problems but Alwin and crew have patiently walked me through them successfully. — David Fields (USA) on Music Collector

I purchased the Music edition of this service and have never looked back
I purchased the Music edition of this service some years ago now, and find it to be essential software for logging my large collection of CD's. I produce and present classical music programmes for a local community radio station, so an efficient and easy-to-use disc search facility is essential.
Long may it reign! — David Backhouse (United Kingdom) on Music Collector

I don't want to miss CLZ Music Colector!
Music is the art of combining vocal and or instrumental sounds together to create expressions of an effect, like emotions and situations. Music can describe feelings and thoughts that many people can have, but they can not express for what ever reason. Music is acutally a noun that means musica in Latin and has originated from the Greek word muse. The word music has synonyms like melody, harmony, and song. Music is a natural tool because it is a form of communication. When animals sing their songs to one another, this is music used for communicating and mating. Humans use music for many different reasons, such as entertainment or to excerise.

For expression and or communication purposes, music has many other great uses. Music is also beneficial for a person's health and even their mood. Studies have shown that people who listen to music are much more smarter, retain more information, and are in better moods for longer periods of time than those people who did not listen to any music at all throughout the day. Plants and babies can also benefit from listening to music. Music should be included in every one's life, either the radio or even online, for an expression of themselves and to be more healthy.

Music Genres

There are many different music genres for a person to enjoy. Each genre contains it's own unique sound, beats, lyrics, and feelings. Each music genre includes varied music artists and performers that produce the same type of music with a certain sound in common. The type of music genre a person enjoys listening to depends on personal preference, mood, or activity. Many people enjoy listening to multiple music genres, while many music artists and performers are included in multiple music genres.The most popular music genres are:

Rock Alternative Country Pop Rap/Hip Hop Blues

When I hear a certain song that is played and listen to the lyrics being sung, this can describe a situation or experience that I may be going through at that time along with the particular emotions that are felt. This can help me to feel better by knowing that another person has been through this type of challenge also, and or has felt the same emotions about certain things. A special song, with amazing lyrics and even a good rhythm, can always mean so much to a person.

I'm collecting now LP's & CD's over 40 years ! The CLZ Programm is a good one to join your own music-collection. You can use it very easy and if you have a problem their is always someone that helps you.

My collections
I have been using your software for many years, including the Music, Books and Movies software versions. I use them about every single week for my collections. What I like about the software are the overall layout and easiness to catalogue even quite complicated items as classical music (for example compilations), where I intend to give all details possible. The more detailed information one give to the system, the more information one gets back, if searching for details.
I like the customization possibilities for both registration and searching and of cause your own database for more easy ground-registration, when importing a new item.
These are the most optimal collector softwares, I have ever seen, and I hope, that you will continue developing them for many years to come. — Preben Falkenløve (Denmark) on Music Collector

Brilliant!
I have been collecting compact discs and videos for many years and it became completely out of hand I was purchasing duplicates and sometimes triplicates! So I decided to sort it out and having investigated I found Collectorz. It took me a few days to scan all the barcodes (about 3, 500) and then "read" the cd's and finally it was done. I was able to synchronise everything so when I am out could immediately see if I had that recording. Whenever I have had a problem the team have always come back to me promptly and everything has always been completely sorted out. Also the update system is really system is easy and the special offers for renewal of subscriptions is brilliant.
I definitely recommend this to all my friends who ask about cataloguing. The purchases are yet again mounting up and I have much work to do. Thank you Collectorz and your staff for being so brilliant! — Robert Garbolinski (United Kingdom) on Music Collector
