I’ve been using CLZ Music collector for 5+ years and it’s been a great way to catalog my CDs and LPs. I use it to keep all media organized by genre and alpha in CD rack and LP cabinet (1000 CDs +100 newly added LPs.) when I scan a new CD - I instantly know which CDs it goes between!
CLZ is always improving the app. like recently adding statistics in real. 5.2. The best part for me is being able to scan barcodes or enter catalog #s - I can’t imagine doing it manually anymore. And now scanning is in the app - no more need for the separate Barry app.
Syncing to the cloud is a nice assurance too.
One of the best working apps I’ve found for running on my PC, MAC, iPhone and iPad !

Great for organizing
I downloaded the app because I was looking for a way to easily catalogue and organize my vinyl collection. Most new albums can be scanned and older ones can be found easily, but often requires a LOT of scrolling through many search results to find the right album.
Customer service is also great as developers reached out within a few days of downloading and were very quick to respond with my one question.

The best music cataloguing system
There’s no better system for cataloguing an extensive, or even a small, music collection. With both the iOS and Mac apps, it’s easy to add and edit albums, whether CDs, vinyl, or files. The level of detail is great, everything from conductor and orchestra for classical, to specifying vinyl weight and color. There are regular updates providing new benefits, and syncing across multiple devices is simple. You can even create “for sale” lists, and wish lists for when you go shopping. I’ve been a satisfied user for years now, and it just keeps getting better.

A very user friendly app
I have been using this app for over 10 years and with a collection of cds and vinyl in excess of 3000, it enables me to manage them all with ease, a very user friendly app. I cannot recommend this app enough, as they say, it does exactly what it says on the tin. As an added bonus, any problems and the CLZ team are on it straight away and normally fix it within 24 hours.

Superb user friendly App and an essential companion for the music collector. Keeps all your music grouped, structured and organised. Intuitive and logical. With a comprehensive database from which to locate CD, Vinyl and DVD information. This great mobile App facilitates fast, accurate data entry and puts you in total control of your collection. Difficult to find or obscure titles can be manually added and missing tracks, disc titles and even artwork can be quickly and easily added. Never misplace another disc again. Great App. Well done CLZ! 10/10. Superb prompt, professional and helpful support readily at hand to answer any queries you may have.

I have 10000+ albums, digital albums (iTunes) and other media. The desktop program allows me to catalog all of that stuff. The mobile app allowed me to add the vinyl without having to move more than a few feet from the storage shelves. Most importantly when I go vinyl shopping I have my full collection with me on my phone. That way I don’t buy anymore vinyl that I already have. That was the ultimate goal of this whole exercise.

CLZ has been the perfect solution to cataloguing all my CDs. Now I have started on all my old vinyl, it will be the first time in over 40 years of collecting that I'll know at a glance what I have and where to find it!

I have been using CLZ Music for over a year and find the program to be a tremendous aid. It is easy to use, and the support provided by the CLZ is outstanding. I have approximately 1000 LPs inputted, and now working on my CDs.
I have the program on three devices and while at the used record store, I no longer purchase albums I all ready own! Great program HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This is an excellent app that has made cataloguing my music collection (including old LPs) very easy. It is also well supported by the developer through regular updates. I also had a need to use their support process and was very pleased by the quick response and resolution to my enquiry.

A LOT of cataloging to do
We just added on some space to our home that included a Theater I’ve dreamt about for 25 years. Well since I did the design of the Projection Room, I thought the long, tall wall would make a perfect place for my vinyl collection. What do you think?
I have a LOT of cataloging to do so I’m VERY lucky to have Collectorz Music Connect!! Thanks for continuing to add to your database!

A really great CD/Vinyl/Media Music Library
For anyone wanting to access their CD, Vinyl or even digital file collection quickly, rather than try and remember what they have or where it is, this is a great App. In a few short sessions I catalogued over 500 CDs that were scattered about in various cabinets, racks, bookcases etc... Typically, each just needed a rapid barcode scan, with just a few percent needing a manual edit. Such edits were needed as the barcode related to the wrong CD, mostly just the wrong version and a very few the wrong CD totally, or there was no CD found. In these cases the catalogue number worked for me except for three very obscure CDs that I needed to fully manually add including a cover picture.
I also catalogue SACDs and the, so far, few high resolution digital files I’ve also started to buy. Using the ‘location’ field I don’t need to care much about which cabinet, rack, bookcase etc a specific CD is or which music is on digital files. I just browse as the mood takes me, looking at the art work and track listings using iPad or iPhone and once selected the location tells me how to quickly find it.
CLZ is by far the best of several ‘library’ Apps I’ve paid for over many years. Although some have suggested it’s rather expensive, looking at who’s behind it (collectorz.com) and my experience, the first time the whole process was easy and quick enough to catalogue my whole collections without giving up on the App, I feel it’s well worth it. These folk have been around for a very long time with desktop library applications and, hopefully, will be around a very long time to come and continue to provide great support too.

Fantastisch! Bequeme Organisation meiner CD/Vinyl-Sammlung
Ich bin einfach nur begeistert!
Diese tolle Datenbank lässt keine Wünsche offen.
Ich konnte in kürzester Zeit einen Großteil meiner CDs und Vinyl LPs (insgesamt ca. 1800 stück) per Barcode erfassen. Ältere CDs/LPs ohne Barcode werden oft schon in der Datenbank gefunden, wenn man nur die Band beziehungsweise den Album-Titel eingibt. Sollte ein Album trotzdem nicht zu finden sein, kann man es manuell erfassen was auch unkompliziert und relativ schnell geht.
Sehr schön ist, dass man die Datenbank nach diversen Kriterien sortieren und durchsuchen kann. Es ist auch sehr hilfreich, dass man die Alben als Foto sieht.
Auch MP3-Alben und Cassetten habe ich eingegeben und daher endlich einen Überblick über meine Sammlung.
Ich wusste gar nicht, das es so ein Tool überhaupt gibt und hatte schon angefangen, manuell eine Exel Tabelle anzulegen, was furchtbar mühsam war. Zum Glück habe ich nach circa 150 Scheiben CLZ Music entdeckt! Die CLZ Music App haben wir auf zwei Smartphones und zwei Tablets installiert und über die CLZ Cloud wird zuverlässig synchronisiert, so dass man sich mit jedem Gerät auf dem aktuellen Stand halten kann.
ich kann CLZ Music nur wärmstens weiter empfehlen. Wir sind äußerst glücklich über diese Entdeckung, die jeden Cent absolut wert ist!

Cataloging our vinyl collection
Didn't remember that we had so many old vinyl. Maybe they are worth something.

Works very well for me
I switched from Music Collector to the Music Connect software a few months ago. However the possibilities for classical music are less than the desktop version it works very well for me. Keep in mind that one of the nice things of playing vinyl is the cover with its information. No need to order everything in the software.
I customized my Genres into something that works for me together with a relation to the location of the record. Then I use tags to define my collection more into criteria I often use like Pianoconcertos or string quartets. So I use mostly the maps 'Genre', 'Location' and 'Tags' to easily find every record, grab it from the shelf and enjoy the music and information on the cover.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
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 have the Music Collector package and use it to catalogue my CDs
, music DVDs and vinyl collection. It is a versatile package, the Collectorz team are very proactive in constantly improving the package and - all in all - it represents excellent value for money.

I have been a COLLETORZ customer for many years. I have about 1200 vinyl albums and over 800 CD's Hard to keep track of it all or if I have lent out any music to friends or family. Worse then that, shopping and finding out after I got home that I already have that !!
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 !!

Communications are excellent
My story begins in Jan/Feb of this year when my elderly laptop lost many of its programmes. Off to local repairer- all back, EXCEPT for Collectorz! On to site, reset and upgraded, but still not complete access. Start to wonder, 1250 Albums (CD. and Vinyl) lost? Site tells me I own licence then won't let me in!
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.

Your improvements in the program are wonderful. I have been able to log over 500 disks, so far, the vast majority LPs, at an overall average of under 2 minutes for each. That average includes time for putting a batch back and getting a new one, occasional refreshment, and so on.
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.
