I'm coming to MusicBee as a JRiver user, and the only disappointment I have is not doing so sooner. I'm floored to find something that's so flexible, functional, and intuitive, for free. It took me maybe only 30 minutes after installing the program to get the interface exactly how I wanted. Considering how bloated, confusing, and expensive JRiver was, I'm honestly embarrassed that this amazing piece of software snuck past me for so long. It's everything I liked about JRiver plus a lot more (which in some cases is actually less where necessary). No more digging around in one of too many preference menus to find the equalizer, and the wave bar scrubber is a game changer with how I listen to and even appreciate music. I used to maintain an album art folder to attach art that wasn't included with some of my downloads, but two clicks and I've instantly got art from multiple image searches to pick between. Unless you've invested however many untold hours getting something like Foobar to look and work exactly how you want and are too scared of having that effort gone to waste, I don't see why anyone who keeps a locally stored music collection wouldn't use this. Brilliant work.
