I've recently updated MusicBee after using an old version for a little over a year and I think I'm in love. It was great before but this current version does everything exactly the way I want it to. My library is 86 gb and 12000 tracks. It handled them seamlessly and makes everything so easy

I thought my 33k mp3 list is a lot until I read this thread!  ::)

68000 audio files, 803GB. Most of them are recorded EP's or CD albums. A lot of own rips and edits. I've been a long time iTunes user but in aint that light and user friendly as MB!

OK, I'll bite.

25,250 files FLAC 693 GB
25,250 files MP3  273 GB

My old standby mediamonkey is only used when I'm managing downloads and rips.

For playing and searching, MB is the ticket.

Using MusicBee since at least 2013

And I'm pretty much at the point of having to remove a track for every one that I add.

Long time Mediamonkey user (Lifetime License) switched to Musicbee for the first Time in 2009 but was not satisfied. At the beginning of this year (2017) tried Musicbee again and have been blown away by its performance and usability.

11,500 tracks (895 albums)
73.17 GB

I'm in awe of some people's libraries, 50k tracks and more. How do you even find so much music that you like?
Meanwhile I probably don't even listen to 50% of my library regularly :D

Just got a bigger NAS so I figured it'd be a great time to start a clean MB library

5686 albums. 1790.5 GB.

Pretty much looking at the entire day to migrate them across

why?

Since this is a thing:



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.

Just a quick update to my library which is approaching 1,000,000 files now. MusicBee is still not having a problem with such a huge library. Currently being stored on 2 external 4tb 2.5" drives.

Tracks = 930,077/Length = 2092d 5:48/File Size - 6298.06 gb
