Title: So how big is your music library?
Post by: ma_t14 on January 04, 2012, 10:37:45 PM
MusicBee often gets complements about how well it manages huge music collections. That made me wonder, how big a "big" real life music collection is and how well is one managed with MusicBee?

What is it like in terms of performance (delays, responsiveness etc) to have a huge library. Post about your experiences, positive or negative and maybe compare to other music players as well if you can.

So let me start, my library is is pretty small, just barely under 5k of mostly 320k mp3s with a few albums in flac as well. I didn't notice much of a difference regarding performance across the music players I tried (probably because of the size of my library). MusicBee is generally very snappy in its operation for me but I expect that to not hold true for much larger libraries.

22,018 tracks
185.64gb

I think the performance is pretty good. Sometimes it can seem a bit sluggish (start up and changing views etc) but I can't really compare to anything else, it's been quite a while since I used anything else and, to be honest, I would put up with a much worse performance from MB before I changed to something else.

I don't have any significant problems with it at all, it does exactly what I need it to. Sorry, not much of a critique here but I really am happy with it.

I don't think 5k is small, especially if you have taken the time to organize it well.

I have almost 9k at about 70BG and I consider it to be decent sized, especially considering all of the time spent tagging everything correctly and adding album art and ratings.  I just finished upgrading my music with iTunes Match so almost everything is 256kbps and the few classic albums that I decided to keep in flac (Beatles, Thriller, etc.).

I take pride in my library and I think I have a good mix. I try to listen to everything at least once through and I avoid having full albums just to have a complete library. I will only download one or two songs from an album if the rest is garbage. This way, I only have music that I will listen to.

6,900 tracks at a touch over 42 gb.
The vast majority of it is MP3s at 256 or 320k.  There are some flac albums (mostly Beatles and Grateful Dead) and I'm slowly going through my CD collection and selecting some which I think will be better served (listened?) as flac. 

I see no slowdowns or performance hits with MusicBee.  I really have nothing to compare it with as I, like most of you, used a good number of players before discovering MB.  But I didn't put much time or effort into ripping my collection up until MB appeared.  It was just too much work.   So I had tracks ripped that I wanted to listen to on my computer and I didn't care much about tagging them with anything other than the title.  When I was in other rooms of the house, I listened to the CD.  Now, with the addition of two Squeezebox devices, I'm incredibly happy that I have been using MB since April of 2009 as my collection was (mostly) properly tagged and ready to play on the Squeezes.

And to that I have to give a tip of the ol' phred hat to Steven.  And to a good number of forum members who have offered suggestions, either directly by answering my questions, or by my reading what they were suggesting to someone else.  Thank you all!!

32,663 tracks and 261.3GB in my main library.
495 tracks and 5 GB in my upcoming (AKA haven't listened to yet, or not properly tagged and organized yet) library.

The vast majority of my tracks are either VBR or 320kbps. I know that before I switched to MB iTunes was going slower at 20,000 tracks than MB does at 32,000+ tracks.

5000 tracks @ 40Gb

I don't like how MB freezes completely whilst bulk processing files or tags. With mediamonkey I could continue doing stuff in it, even though it was tagging hundreds of files. I think I remember Steven saying that this would be addressed in the future, when MB comes out of beta and is 'finished'.

Also, I made a decision to keep all of my artwork to 300x300 @ 25kb. To me it seemed that MB stuttered a little and took longer to display when artwork was significantly larger (Eg 800x800 @ 75kb).

Apart from that, no problems at all.

43,000 songs (about 450 gig -+), and as quick as it was when it was just 10 tracks.  
I gave up with Winamp because the lib took too long to navigate after it got aver 30,000. It would sometimes take nearly 3 seconds to swap artist or select a different view, and it got annoying after a while.

MusicBee otoh, performs lightning fast. always.
The only downside is trying to get my friends to swap to MusicBee as well, as i drummed Winamp into them for years.

(would love a better VU meter though ;) )

is it still sliggish changing view with the latest beta version? I made a change a couple of weeks ago which should have improved that if you had the artist profile panel displayed. If its still the same, how many seconds are you talking about?

i will look at bulk tag editing at some point
for the artwork size that was addressed several beta releases ago and should no longer slow things down

Mine's only 52GB. It used to be 100's of GBs but I've lost some HDDs and haven't replaced it. I just add what I want to nowadays. I rip CDs to flac using EAC and convert to V0. Most of what I download is V0 and all the music destined for MB is V0 pretty much. I don't listen to lossless but merely use it for archival purposes ie if I have flac then I can convert it to whatever I or someone else needs. MB handles my humble collection perfectly
*EDIT*
763 artists
597 albums
7,315 songs
52.37 GB (~ 813 hours
(according to SubSonic)

Now you mention it (just tested it now), it does seem a lot better now with the latest beta. It was never slow as such, probably only a couple of seconds.

Good afternoon all
Very much a newbie here and an "eejit" too ... but only till I find the right place for my Question.
Library 11,019 tracks, (all mp3)
53.3 GB ... 29 days 8.54hrs ... according to MB.

Winamp was my first love and I will always have good memories of it.  However, it has been replaced by MusicBee.
I find the just about everything in MB at least one step ahead of the others I have tried.  I have created two converts for you who now feel the same way as I do.
Yep, little niggles ... the "freeze" when completing mass edits etc ... but such a small price to pay when you consider the stability, the quality of basic sound, which I either play through Bose computer speakers or Sennheiser USB headset.
Clearly the support is here in these forums ... and all I need to do is ask my question in  a way other will see and understand my ignorance and treat me kindly.
EXCELLENT program thank you
Title: Re: So how big is your music library?
Post by: p-mob on January 08, 2012, 04:38:03 PM
59000 tracks, 380Gb.
I´ve done my first MP3 files in 1997. Since then, my collection has grown and grown. From 32kbit mono to 320kb is everything in it.  ;)
I was a happy Winamp user for a long time until the mobile device sync came up.
Winamp was (and is still) not able to do a sync of multi disc albums with identical track names, without mixing them up. That was the point where I decided to use MB.
And a few months ago, when the tab thing came up, I was the happiest MB user in the world.
MusicBee does everything I can imagine for managing a huge digital audio collection.
Thanks Steven!

5055 music tracks, all FLAC. Another 330 podcast files in MP3. I have MusicBee set to auto-convert the FLAC files to AAC whenever I sync up to my iPod, and the podcast files go on there in the format they were downloaded in. Sadly, they don't stay in sequential order but having just tried MediaMonkey and having had it crash *every* single time I tried to sync to my iPod, I decided MusicBee was worth its weight in gold, sequential order or not!  ;D

620,9 GB.
All mp3's. From Hard Rock and AOR to Brutal Death and Black Metal. Updating and expanding.
Was using iTunes, but such large collection was very slooooooow in that piece of Apple crap. Mediamonkey disappointed too (it ever failed to import my iTunes database with track ratings). And then I found MB... And what I have to say... THERE IS NO IMPOSSIBLE TASK FOR MUSICBEE. Speed, customization, responsiveness! I love it!

82,000 tracks in just over 1TB. 6 seconds to load up initially, 1-2 seconds switching views like playlists etc.

Hard to know whether this is due to the size of my library or the speed of my computer 2.4ghz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 2TB Seagate SATA HD.

Post by: greenday1987 on February 27, 2012, 02:25:49 PM
V0 for me usually. Occasionally if only an iTunes release is available then it'll be 256Kbps or there abouts. Sometimes only 320Kbps is about of a certain release in which case I just get that. But yeah basically whatever I can get if I can't get V0. If I rip my own CDs it'll always be V0 for my library converted from FLAC that is kept for archival reasons.

My library does have 51.148 tracks with a total of 14583,3 GB and a duration of 158 days, 7 hours, 9 minutes.
Everyting is in the FLAC format. There are some 24 bit-96 kHz files albums.

MusicBee does have, despite the big library, a very good performance. It does cost about 5 seconds to start up MusicBee and to show the library.
Many artwork has a size of 800x800 or 1000x1000 pixels or even higher but MusicBee doesn't have problems with it.

Top Release Year: 2007 - 3,054

Seriously...love the library statistics! Love MB! Performance is very good for my library. I like the features and visibility into the library, and the constant updates are cool.

I would agree with an earlier comment about bulk tagging being a little slow, but overall the product is great. There is a lot of stuff in here I haven't even looked at yet. Love the features for updating song lyrics

I was a long-time MusicMatch an.d then MediaMonkey user. I think MediaMonkey screwed some things up with version 4. They may get their act together, but I like the vibe on the MB site.

Oh, also... my library is on NAS and MB seems to have a time monitoring the folders for changes. I have to rescan the library, or restart to pick up changes. Not a huge deal, but it takes several minutes to scan the entire library. I've tried limiting the scan to only look at a single folder that I know has changes, but it doesn't seem to affect the time. Maybe something there?

13,000 files and 91GB. I spent most of last year AutoDJ'ing just the unrated tracks so that I could rate and correct the categories (I use a lot of custom ones).  It was a momentous task when i completed that last month.  i am now enjoying my best tracks, but do need to delete a whole host of rubbish tracks which are sat there un-listened to.  MB is defo the best.  i have tried others in the past but this does everything that i could ever want and it very very rarely crashes.

88k of tracks, ca. 700GB, 265 days and 7h of constant listening

The collection is quite old (some of the mp3s I have for longer than 10 years), so the quality differs (usually older ones are of lower quality).
As for the genres - I have it all:)
MB Library works fast enough.

I have a pretty modest library. 4,916 tracks, 15d 3h, 33.6 GB. Sadly, I lost all my "date added" tags when I switched over from iTunes several years ago; it would have been fun to chart the growth of my library over time.

MusicBee can be a tiny bit sluggish at managing everything, but I think that's really my fault for keeping 320 kbps MP3s that I could probably downsize without losing any enjoyment, not to mention the massive album art (2000px+, in some cases) that I've embedded in every file. I'm just very paranoid about data integrity, especially after Windows Media Player - which I don't even use - saw fit to destroy half my collection of "folder.jpg" covers.

Just joined - been using MB for a few months now, and it really is the best music software I've used - and I've tried a few! Current library 8467 tracks, 62.9GB, 31d 19:44. Mix of high quality mp3, wma and ogg. I also have 1500-odd MIDI backing tracks that I keep for practice. That's the only nuisance - I have to open them with XMPlay or Notation Player. The latter would be great if the notation were accurate, but it isn't  ;)

MusicBee still runs fine. Which is even more impressive when you consider that all files and even MusicBee (Portable) itself are stored on a NAS.

Currently I have in excess of half a million tracks, just over 525,000 which are spanned across two 3tb external hard drives and backed up to a server just in case. I still have 35,000 more tracks to edit and tag which equals another 300gb. That should bring the total to about 560,000. I still have more CD's to go through and rip as well. Now you may be asking why anyone would need or want enough music that would take more than 3 years to play continuously. This collection has taken me over 40 years to compile (I'm 62 now). I've also been a volunteer DJ at a community radio station for over 4 years. I just grab my laptop and two hard drives and away I go. I spend an hour each show profiling a specific artist doing a complete bio and featuring about a dozen or more tracks from each artist. And if a listener calls in with a request there's a damned good chance I'll have that track. And I listen to almost everything from A-Z (Acappella to Zydeco). The only genres I'm not keen about are opera and rap. But I love techno and trance!

I previously used Winamp but it started giving me problems trying to update the database when I reached about 450,000 tracks. I then discovered MusicBee and it is super fast! It does take almost 60 seconds to load at start and about 10 seconds to re-sort on a column but searches are instantaneous. Thanks to Steven for a fantastic program.

2.788.4 TB. 287, 447 tracks. 865 d. Meticulously tagged and album art. I choose to stay with ver. 2.1.4924.

It took YEARS to rip my entire CD collection, though I still buy 10-20 CDs a week.

MusicBee works great. I was just coming to donate, when I found this thread. For a long time I could not afford to do so, but always kept it in my mind that I must do so when I was able as MusicBee basically saved my life. Music IS my life and MusicBee is a daily companion that makes my life SO much better. I could not enjoy my collection nearly as much without this amazing piece of software.

As far as performance with a large collection, the only thing I've noticed is issues with is search. This is simply due to the search attempting to predict what you are typing to provide faster results. With a large database, this slows performance. For a long time, I simply typed into notepad and then cut&pasted my complete query into search to prevent the predictive search. One day, it occurred to me to type a string with no results (zxc)...a space, and then my query. Then I delete 'zxc'. Voila...no predictive results.

Anyway, Thanks again for creating software that is such an integral part of my life.

MB is by far the fastest music manager on Windows that I've tried for my collection (Foobar2k, Mediamonkey (my former staple), iTunes).  I'm glad I discovered it earlier this year.

* Foobar2k (with a skin from deviantart) was pretty non-performant

* Mediamonkey was my mainstay for years before it started to slow down a bit and had a nasty habit of erasing 8,000+ tracks on my phone upon syncing.

* iTunes slowed to a crawl years ago when my collection was ~300GB

* Special mentions to Amarok 1.4.10+mysql and cantata+mpd on linux.  Both are by far the fastest music managers I ever tried.  However, Amarok's interface was a little simple and it required running a mysql server alongside it.  Cantata+mpd doesn't store every field in its db enabling it to maintain top speed at the cost of limited query lookups.

MusicBee often gets complements about how well it manages huge music collections. That made me wonder, how big a "big" real life music collection is and how well is one managed with MusicBee?

What is it like in terms of performance (delays, responsiveness etc) to have a huge library. Post about your experiences, positive or negative and maybe compare to other music players as well if you can.

So let me start, my library is is pretty small, just barely under 5k of mostly 320k mp3s with a few albums in flac as well. I didn't notice much of a difference regarding performance across the music players I tried (probably because of the size of my library). MusicBee is generally very snappy in its operation for me but I expect that to not hold true for much larger libraries.

Just broken the 14000 mark, mostly FLAC, although I still have some mp3 and wmv that I can;t find the originals for. Currently just over 300gigs of space. I still have a few thousand albums to record though and a few thousand singles as well, i'm probably not even 10% of the total it will be when finished. I store everything except the musicbee laylist on an external drive.

Despite having an old cheap laptop that desperately needs replacing, I get no lag except when only just having turned it on. The difference since switching to MusicBee from WMP is phenominal.

Since this is a thing:

(http://i67.tinypic.com/24nfi0y.jpg)

The reason why I have musicbee. Now at the moment it can really only deal with a few thousand edits at a time or it crashes and cannot save everything. I have a ton of duplicates and the like from decades of storing and backing up my music, and I wanted to go through it all and organize it, and nothing else has been able to handle the vast size. Oh and tons of misnamed files because most of those pay things that rename files are good for 80%, and then they end up wrecking anything that is live or bootlegged or not directly from an album, so there is a lot of that I get to go through and figure out. At one point it was over half a million, I think when I started it was around 550,000 files or so.

My main library is 3,808 files, 52.5 GB. There are a lot of songs and soundtracks, and roughly 24.5GB is flac (833 files).

I switched from iTunes to MusicBee at the start of 2017, but back then I had no flacs, and maybe half or a third the number of files. MusicBee was by far superior in speed (starting up, running, processing/tagging). It's always had the tiniest bit of unpredictability in whether it starts on command (might take a couple clicks of the icon before it chooses to display the start-up).

I have it sitting in the background 99% of the time in Compact Player view, having assigned CTRL+SHIFT+M to switching between compact and main view, because I do this frequently.
However, since I have recently been steadily adding to my library from what was once 10GB to >50Gb, I have noticed that when I switch from compact into main view, it has taken longer to properly display (windows stays white for a couple seconds while it prepares itself.
I am also not sure if this is the doing of my larger library or the major update that I installed (from mid-2017 to August 2018 I did not update).
Also, recently it has been crashing more frequently, usually if I'm editing a large number of tags or converting a large number of files.

I have personally listened to every one of my 10k-ish library tracks at least once before adding them to the library, and then they go into rotation on playlists based on number of plays, so theoretically they should all come up again given enough time (still fine-tuning this system, but it's getting there).  But i hear you, i wonder about it when people have literally years worth of music. :D
Title: Re: So how big is your music library?
Post by: frankz on January 23, 2019, 04:19:05 AM
My actual (non-classical) library is ~39,000 tracks, mostly full albums, all of which I've heard at some point during the 20 years I've been collecting them.  My "listening library" is a static playlist of the songs I like and want to hear from my library - right now that's at about ~17,000 tracks.  From there, like psychoadept, I have a few auto-playlists set up.  Mine are based on date added and date last played.  

Basically songs can be in the rotation for unlimited plays for the first 6 months after they're added.  After 6 months, they're not played within 6 months of their most recent play unless they're tagged Evergreen=Yes.  Evergreen songs can always come up in rotation even if I heard them yesterday.  They're a handful of favorites.

So I have my static playlist "listening library" and the main "rotation" auto-playlist from that, and then from that rotation playlist comes several auto-playlists for specific situations.  One to synch to my phone that is limited to the size of my SD card.  One that strips out everything marked as "explicit" which is for listening in the house when my kid is around.  One that is only tracks that haven't been heard since their initial 6 month "trial" for when I want some stuff I'm really not all that familiar with but I know I like. The "rotation" playlist and its offshoots are what I actually listen to on a daily basis.

I finally bit the bullet and set up last.fm play data synching so that plays on my phone will remove those songs from rotation when I'm listening at home.  That was something I resisted for a long time, but I'm glad I finally took the plunge.  I lost a lot of the play count I had been building up since I started tracking that in 2009 (I only started with last.fm in 2017 when I started with MB), but I decided raw play count was more interesting than it was useful for my purposes, while having an accurate all-inclusive last played date would be more useful for my needs.

My goal is to have surprises mixed in with the well-loved and familiar like a personal radio station that only plays songs I already know I like. MB has made that possible.

Revamped my collection

Loads in 1 second... and I'm using the "Album Covers" main library view.
Still discovering all the ways to operate MusicBee, so currently not everything is in the library.

6443 albums, 2470.8 GB, 338 days 14:59 and all as FLAC, 98% classical

Works well in MusicBee although I'm currently getting white noise when trying to burn a CD.

I have around 7 000 tracks which is about 43 gb. Love to listen to it when I am on vacation in real estate in Como, Italy here (https://tranio.com/italy/lombardy/lake_como/), I just enjoy driving around this area in the car and listening to my collection.

Using MusicBee for about 6 years now, and it is the best library program I have. Starts fast and works well with my NAS.

My library has at the moment 117000 tracks (about 9000 albums) in flac. About 2397 GB. And I still have about the same number of albums to go.....

In the library statistics window the number of albums displayed is 17.083, number of songs is 225.156. But in the main window the number of albums is 15.736 and the number of songs is 225.156.
Where does this difference come from?
For the rest MB is great for organizing the music collection.

UPDATE

31,979 of the highest CBR mp3s I can get my hands on.

Why only MP3?

4,673 tracks, 502 albums, 14d 2 hours, 79GB.

A decent collection but nothing crazy. It's only music I like since I only have the one HDD. I could do with downgrading some FLAC files to MP3 320 though.
