Music Collector reviews
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.
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.
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!
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.
Long may it reign!
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.
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.
I don't want to miss CLZ Music Colector !
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.
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!
I found one program I liked more than the others, but it was bought by some other company and dropped out of sight. Now I had a choice of using a years-old program with no updates and no support or finding a new program.
I don't remember how I happened across Collectorz, but the first time I used it I thought "MAN! Where has this been all the time I've been searching?" Then there was an update.
FANTASTIC! Here's where it all goes south.
WRONG! The update actually not only made what already existed better, but it added MORE things! More HELPFUL things! I figured the company would eventually sell out to the highest bidder (that's just how my luck runs sometimes) and I'd be looking for a replacement again.
NOT SO! Not only is it still around, it's better, easier to use, and more capable than it was when I first fell in love with it around 10 years ago.
Contact them for technical support. Not only do you always get and answer, but (and this is maybe even more hard to believe) THEY'RE ALWAYS RIGHT!
If you get this program to catalog your CDs (or movies, comics, games, etc.) and you DON'T appreciate the obvious thought and planning that goes into providing a world-class program you really must not need an 'inventory' program as badly as you thought!
In short, I've bought a whole lot of software in the 30+ years I've been dealing with computers, but I don't believe there's been one I like as much or would miss more than Collectorz!
The development and growth of the MUSIC program is amazing.
I used to work for a small IT company here before it was bought out by a BIG company was awesome. I can relate to the entire team and what it all means !! Any time I have reached out to you for help . . you have always come through..
Love all that you do !!
E mail to Collectorz outlining problem. Very quick reply, but checked their end, Unlocked the account and reset. Wonders! all back to normal. Thank you all for taking the time and trouble to sort a non tech customer very calmly with easy instructions. Communications are excellent.
Working steadily, I can log a single box of 50 in under 60 minutes if I don't run into any "not found". That means that your existing catalog is astonishingly complete.
Your software is perfect for my needs
I've tried other software, but nothing compares to Music Collector.
Absolutely brilliant and, well, cool as s#$t!
I had a ton of uncatalogued music, I was way behind - but in the last couple of months since I started to use Music Connect I managed to catalog about 3500 CDs. Excellent job. Beautifully streamlined.
A must-have for both personal and business use. GRAP it NOW! We give it 2 thumbs up way up!
Thank you all; you may take a small bow but don't get big headed !!!!
