Hello. It's about time I started abusing my speakers on my desktop and listened to music. However, I would like suggestions for software.

I used iTunes for a while because I had an iPod (which I don't anymore and not plan to get one any time soon), but if there's one thing I liked about iTunes, it had a really convenient way of making manual or automated playlists. I also would like to be able to modify tags easily and/or en masse. Much thanks in advance.

I know it's not the popular choice, but I stick with WMP (using Media Player Codec Pack of course).
The library works fine, network sharing's a breeze, there are available plugins for itunes and its ilk, playlists are easily organized and exported (My Zune, Blackberry and Bluetooth enabled car stereo all accept WMP playlists), plus it has the best context menu options (especially in Windows 7). Just make sure you run your updates (it wasn't always so seamless and compatible)!

Thanks for the replies. I started off with WMP, but had issues trying to mass-change tags on the go and downloaded Media Monkey. It really works beautifully.

However, I'll still use WMP for listening to individual songs or sound bytes from random places. Thanks again!

I have iTunes currently (not pleased with it, i literally just finished chasing down over 1000 dead links that never moved, but I'm stuck with it since i have an iPod). I use The Godfather http://users.otenet.gr/~dtou20/ for mass tag editing usually and WMP for playing, ripping (I still buy CD's from the record store, doubt I'll ever change) and most small functions. We have a fairly nice list of Freeware Apps here on the site too http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...st&p=345675 <-will take you right to the Audio Apps section

/me wishes his modem would work in Linux so i could use Rhythmbox or Exaile again, they are awesome when it came to organizing your media library. Sadly no Windows ports exist for either program
