I use MusicBee on Windows, and I'm pretty satisfied with it. If you're on a Mac, I can't help you except to suggest that you Google "mac music library organizer".

I found MusicBee super powerful but has a horrible UI design, is very confusing and somewhat frustrating.
I use MediaMonkey to organize my library, and Dopamine as my regular player.

Calibre is an interesting choice as it will let you put most any kind of file there (not just books). It doesn't DO much with anything but books, but you can edit, search change metadata, etc. It tends to work nicely for anything with titles, authors, etc. I use it for scanned-in sheet music, also keeping midi files along with the pdf's when I have them.

Interesting, I use Calibre to manage my eBooks. Never thought about it for music.

I've used JRiver Media Centre cataloguing and playback for a number of years and have always been happy - it can play just about any audio or video file and has very powerful tagging and editing features.

Old post, I know but have a serious look at MediaMonkey (dot com). Not sure there's anything you can't do with it for music file collections!

anyone know of a system such as LR but for music files, mp3, flac, shn etc
mike doyle, half a year ago, our company, that specializes on photo-services, asked and our managers asked themselves - how much does it cost to make a website , that will be with integrated online app that will be very similar to Lightroom app. And nowadays, what I know for sure - it is really expensive thing to develop :)
