I can’t carry my digital music library around anymore.
Problem iTunes with an increasing library is unmanageable.
Approach ****Bring modularity to current local setup.
Solution Proprietary software for multimedia management powered up with FOSS
As a former professional musician, I listen to a lot of music every day.
Over the years, I gathered several terabytes worth of records in digital format.
When I was performing as a DJ, I used to carry around external hard drives, backups and USB sticks.
Even though lighter than old vinyl crates, it was still a pain to carry around.
With the size of my digital library growing daily, working with iTunes became increasingly time consuming.
Facing incompatibility with other software, I was losing big time making iTunes to work the way I needed to.
Also, doing off-site and incremental backups from iTunes was inconsistent.
It was time for a big change.
This actually applies to tools of all kinds. Don’t get married to them.
What do I actually need?
