12 December 2019

Catalog your CDs in a database automatically.

Overview

Music Collector lets you catalog your CDs in a database automatically. Just insert a CD in your CD-ROM drive, scan its barcode, or type artist and title to download all data from various sources on the Internet. Use the integrated TWAIN support to scan cover images directly into the program.

Browse your collection by different organizing factors and use the integrated Loan Manager to track which CDs you loaned and to whom. The demo version of this app caps your database at 100 CDs.

What's new in Music Collector

Version 20.0.1:
Dark Mode support:

Yes, your Music Collector software now finally supports the macOS Light vs Dark mode setting (available in Mojave and Catalina). That is, if you have your macOS set to Dark mode, Music Collector now nicely shows up with a dark background in all screens!
To change your macOS settings for light, dark or auto mode:

  • Click the Apple icon top left and select “System Preferences”
  • Click “General”
  • For Appearance, select Light, Dark or Auto (auto changes from light to dark based on day/night)
  • Close the screen

The change will immediately be effective in Book Collector!

Many fields added to the sync:

We have recently updated our CLZ Cloud storage and the CLZ Music mobile app to support many more fields. In today’s v20 release, Music Collector for macOS becomes fully compatible with the new sync system and mobile app
The following extra fields now sync with the CLZ Cloud / Music Connect / CLZ Music:
We’ve added many fields to the sync with CLZ Cloud:

  • Conductor
  • Orchestra
  • Composer (multiple composers supported now, including their sortnames)
  • Studio
  • Recording Date
  • Live: Yes/No
  • Sound: Mono/Stereo/Hi-Res Stereo/Multi-channel
  • Extras
  • Back Cover image!
Important: after the update MANY albums will need to Sync to CLZ Cloud!

Please note that after updating your software to version 20, Music Collector needs to upload any album that contains information in any of the above fields. For some users this could mean almost your entire collection needs to be synced to the CLZ Cloud again. This is necessary to upload your data for the above new cloud sync fields
We are aware this can take a long time, especially for large collections, but there really is no way around this, sorry

Back Covers:
  • With this big update for Music Collector we’re adding custom back covers to the sync!
  • We introduced a new checkbox “Custom Image” in the Edit screen for back covers of album entries. This checkbox will be automatically checked when you replace the Core image, e.g. by using Find Cover Online, by dragging and dropping or by using the Browse button to add a local image
  • Once this Custom Image box is checked, that cover will automatically sync to and from the CLZ Cloud
  • Custom back covers will always stay marked as custom, so that even if you clear your cloud and sync everything again, they will re-upload automatically
Modifications to the edit screen:
  • The Location field has been moved to the bottom of the Edit Screen
  • Collection Status field is now a dropdown menu
  • Edit screen is a bit less wide now

This app and the other apps in the series as well are packed with an overkill of features. Not very "Mac", not very intuitive. Furthermore the dev sends far to much mail once signed in for a newsletter. Lookes like some kind of spamming. When I confronted the dev with this a while ago he got abusive an unkind. And now, , recentley, the developer has made some kind of payment system where the user must pay every month to keep his software updated. At that point I switched CDpedia. Everone should because that's exactly the software I was looking for. Bye, Bye Collectorz. com....

I used MC for some time and I am not pleased with what it is offering. In order to create new entry you have to scan its bar code with... !? So, instead of making things easier, developer pushes us to another purchase just for using this software!? There are problems even when you try to create new entry (opera CDs for instance) which is consisted of 2 or 3 CDs. It will create two entries and then you have to insert second one into first one, and then... I think - two stars for developer's effort is quite enough.

Knocks Readerware AV out of the box, but it needs a little work yet. I have been having trouble with the entry window when trying to scan in barcodes for a CD - it disappears. When I put the CD into the computer and have the program scan the CD, it does very well. It would be nice if it would enter the price for you, like readerware does. Overall, for 1.0, it is a great program!
