Music Collection is a software application which comprises tools for helping you manage your music collection in a database. It addresses advanced users as well as less experienced ones.
The interface of the program is made from a standard window with a well-defined layout, where you can create a new database by specifying the output directory and filename. Music Collection supports only Microsoft Access files (MDB format).
Adding a new album to the list implies filling in some information regarding the album data (e.g. title, media number, bands, extra features, web link), medium data (e.g. performer, composer, credit, state, notes, location), tracks, lyrics and the album cover.
You can insert as many records as you want into the database, or sort them by various criteria (e.g. artist, genre, format, label), toggle between album and track viewing mode, or view albums with images.
It is also possible to edit album properties or remove albums from the database, export an album to the HTML format, add an artist's biography, backup and restore data, manage loans and collection covers, search for an album or track, as well as view statistics and generate reports.
Music Collection requires a low-to-moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, has a good response time and includes user documentation. No error notifications have been shown in our tests and the app did not hang or crash. Thanks to its intuitive layout yet comprehensive options, Music Collection should satisfy the entire audience. There's also a portable edition available.
