MB still works like a charm.

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.

37,928 tracks

232.84 GB
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?

Music Library = 175GB

used to use itunes to organize and winamp to DJ from , and I really like MB so far for doing both in one!  =)

Is there a future in having MB on a Mac? 

Always been a PC, but the dark side of macair is lookin sexy... but MB not being on a Mac is a big deciding factor right now (if this topic is elsewhere please let me know, thank you!

its been discussed quite a few times around linux and the answer is no plans to do that. Of course with Macs you can run windows software quite easily i believe if you install some virtualisation software

Speaking of large files...

Mr Silas Arentsen (Silasje1), could you please consider using a smaller signature image?

Your cute puddy tat appears to come in at a shade under 10MB, which won't be doing the forum host's bandwidth any favours.  :-\
Bee excellent to each other...

First thing:
Yep can make it smaller ;)

Second:

If musicbee was made in Pyhton language it can be ported to all platforms (linux, linux based OS, mac etc. )
