Wow. I can't even begin to explain how amazing MusicBee is & how much I love it...but I'll try....
I've tried over 30 different media players, including some that were expensive, like that poor excuse for a rip off of this, called "MediaMonkey", which costs way too much, isn't close to worth a dime and can't even begin to do 1/4th of what this can, & they even have the audacity to charge for codecs (which I'm convinced they make codecs you have already not work on purpose, to try and squeeze more money out of people), and I've tried other tagging software, etc, and I don't understand why a single soul would ever use anything else, especially Itunes, ever again when there's this. This is purely & simply one of the best pieces of software I've ever used (In my top 5 of all time, from hundreds & hundreds of different programs of different types)??
It does everything you could ever want, need, think of & even not think of, or expect, & it's all helpful beyond reason, it's easy as pie to use, it's amazing & ridiculously light on resources, especially considering it's abilities, & best of all...it's FREE. If there was one software I could pick to donate money to, this would be it. In fact, as soon as I get some, I'm going to do as much as I can afford to.
I am going to promote the hell out of MusicBee when I finish getting my website up & running, as well as leaving great reviews on any software sites it's on. The customizability of it is a major plus for me, since I'm someone who can't stand white on my screen, or anything boring & plastic looking, basically anything that looks like itunes, & more-so, I need to customize everything in life I possibly can.... and then, when I didn't think auto-tagging, last.fm capability, auto-playlists, customizable fonts & everything else, artwork downloading, lyrics downloading & a million other epic things weren't enough.... then Winamp plugins are compatible? File conversion?! Ipod Sync? I can choose icons? I can completely change my layout to my liking? No freakin way...it's just so amazing & almost unbelievable. I don't ever talk like this about anything, unless I truly & completely love it, & boy do I.
Please, please, don't ever change it much or take anything away (and if it's not broken, don't "fix" it!) because I've had enough heartbreak when every app, software & anything else I really like & even need keeps getting crippled by stupid developers & the morons who decide to listen to other morons who want things much simpler & more stupid & less functional. MusicBee is truly perfect, one of a kind, & completely the best media software I think has ever been made. I love it wholeheartedly & am so thankful for it, partly (that's not all though) because I have over 60,000 songs & I have had absolutely no possibility of ever being able to organize, tag, remove duplicates, filter or do anything else I've needed & wanted to do for a long time...until now. It's saved me countless days, even months worth of time I'd have to spend tediously doing any of these things, & time is SO precious to me?
Ok, enough gushing....but seriously, one last thank you, for the best thing that ever happened to media, ever. I wish I could find a way to personally convert every single person I've known enough to care, to using this, because it's a gift & straight up magnificent thing to use.
...not...that...I feel strongly about it or anything.......lol..... ^______^
<edit> Oh yeah, and I'm someone who can't learn from instructions, I only do by "playing" with whatever it is & checking out all settings, plus add in great common sense & deductive reasoning, it's easy to do, but even if I didn't have these abilities, I believe this is one of the most simple, easy to use, intuitive pieces of software I've ever used. Everything is so straightforward & at no point have I been confused. Usually I get frustrated spending hours and hours with a program, but as time went on over the past 3 days, I just fell more & more in love. This is truly a brilliantly put together masterpiece. Honestly, there's not a single complaint on my side. It also seems that involvement of users & listening to request/suggestions goes a really long way, & add in the contributions from others, it's an incredibly perfect collaboration. I don't think any company that spent a lot of money could even do what's been done here, & I mean it from the bottom of my heart. I'm going to donate $20 today & probably more down the line, because I know this will be one of few programs I use often & actually enjoy using, & don't feel like anything is lacking from. I've listened to more music in the past few days because of this, than I have in years. I'm able to rediscover music I have, or discover stuff I have but never got to hear... really, I couldn't be more happy about this & I'm sure it will continue to be a winner that nothing else can compare to. Keep up the great work, everyone, & really, top notch work on everything & making it a virtually bug-free, light piece of software I can comfortably run while I have 30 tabs open in chrome with extensions (resource HOG), Photoshop CS6, & a couple other smaller programs, & not have my computer slow to a crawl, or be unable to do anything. It's so lovely & makes me very very happy. I love music a lot, but haven't been able to really enjoy it like this in years, maybe even ever. It's not just software, it's an experience!!!
