I have a lot of music, it is true, on my computer (Folk, Rock, traditional, French music, Pop, jazz, Classical, for example the Integral of Mozart, of JS Bach, of L. van Beethoven ... ) ; in total, several hundred GB, in mp3, AIFF, … . I was a teacher in Music and Choral Singing, now retired !
But I remain reasonable with regard to beatunes : I do not process all my music librarian or very large playlists at the same time !!! For the moment, for example, I manage the music which I have concerning Mozart ; I deal first with one folder where there is vocal music, then another where there are sonatas, then a third where there are the symphonies … ; I do things little by little.
What I don't understand is that, in this case, beatunes processes, I think, only a little data at a time, and it does not react either very arbitrarily or very slowly.
Example : when after having selected in the media library a window of 25 lines (cmd a), I then do "cmd i", there I should be able to quickly intervene on the different fields to personalize them (delete information, add more, replace "baroque" by "Classic", etc ...), and there, it is really very very frustrating to see the absence of reaction of the software.
I mainly use the "Media library" window and rarely but sometimes the "Inspection" window, which is really too long to load.
This is the problem (s) that I meet. What can you do in my case ?

Hi Hendrik !
How many songs are in my library ?!?
It's impossible to answer correctly...
A few thousands, I believe...
Jazz ? A lot
Folk/Contry/West Coast... ? A lot (just one example : I own all ths songs of Joni Mitchell, I'm very fan of her -> 28 albums... near 250 songs ?
Classical ? a lot
French songs ? A lot
Rap ? near zero
Disco ? near zero
Dance ? near zero
Electro ? Near zero
Why this question (number of sons rather number of GigaBytes ?)

Hello Henrik !
I do that : I have near 33 thousand "songs" on my Hard Disk.
That said, I like it when things are clear : even if Beatunes is ... "finicky", I still manage to get some satisfaction from him ; it also seems that the latest version (5.2.10) improves things.
I repeat, I never process more than 20/25 titles at a time.
So Beatunes is perfectible but it's still good software.
PS : Could I have an info (via sms or mail) when I receive a reply to one of my messages?
thanks in advance.
