"Could be great, but wasn't as simple as it could be"
It is very easy to add discs ( just a few mouse clicks), and the process is very fast. CD info is quite accurate - it found quite a few of my more obscure discs, and usually differentiated between "disc 1" and "disc 2" (etc) of multi-disc albums.
Buttons & tabs were not very intuitive for me; various redundant buttons; newly added discs would not always show up immediately (I had to switch to a different tab/sort to find them). Clicking "help" was useless - the file was too minimal.
This could have been a fantastic, simple freeware program; I've compared it to 3 trial versions of paid software and found it to be simpler and quicker to add discs, as well as providing more accurate CD info & finding quite a few discs not found by the paid programs. Unfortunately, there were a few glitches, and the non-intuitive sort tabs & buttons had me more frustrated than pleased.
Based on this freeware, I would be highly unlikely to purchase MusiFind Pro (the "premier," paid product from the same publisher, Author Direct) for $39. A free trial version of it is available, but after using this freeware for about a week I had no interest in trying any other Author Direct products for a while!
