    I use Mediamonkey to play stuff and to maintain my library, it's the best shit out there. I pity the fools who use iTunes.

    A lot of it is MP3 but I'm buying my my favorite stuff on CD's lately and ripping them to FLAC. I even got some 24bit/96Khz stuff in there (some classical music, Buena Vista Social Club and Pink Floyd albums) which sounds unbelievable. Every single file in there is correctly named with artist, genre, album, track number, cover and year.

    All in all:
    9.603 files
    85,7 GB

    What do you got?

    A shit load....and I'm fucking sick of iTunes. How can you get all of your music off of there? Been meaning to do this for quite some time...but I'm just too damn lazy.

    I've started my digital library like ten years ago and I never throw stuff away. It got big over many years.

    I really don't give a shit about being organized in general, but when it comes to my music library, I'm like a massive OCD retard.

    I have around 60GB on my computer but also about 600 CDs that arent on there since I dont have enough space to put it on. I wish I could go back to when I was a teen, give myself a cheap external hard drive with all my music and tell myself dont be a dumbass and spend it all on music, I spent like $2000 on my shit back in the day buying import albums and such.

    300~400 Gigz.....But it's all on external hard drives right now. I did a fresh OS install on a new SSD (LOVE that fucker!), and I haven't had the urge to put iTunes back on my machine, because IT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I tend to be a big Apple fan, but iTunes has always been, and continues to be, an utter and complete piece of shit... And the iTunes "Store" is even more haaaaaaaarrible, which I didn't think was possible......

    I don't have files. If I want to hear a song I fly in the band and have them play it. I'm in the mood for Damage Inc. right now. Time to put a call out to Lars.

    No, it's an application. It syncs with any device, including Apple stuff.

    I doesn't look as flashy as iTunes but it's so much more efficient at what a music library program should do: managing your music. It's super easy to batch edit your music with it, too. I love everything about it.

    If you have a Mac you're shit out of luck because it's Windows only.

    I'd probably have close to a 1,000 if I didn't sell them when I had a coke habit.
