“If you enjoy listening to music on your computer, you probably considered organizing your content in an efficient manner, so that you can access it easier.
Fortunately, nowadays there is a wide selection of tools you can use to accomplish your goal, such as Song Director.
Setting up this program on your computer can be achieved without significant effort since it does not require you to perform any advanced configuration steps.
During its installation, you just need to specify the destination folder and follow the on-screen instructions, since the setup package automatically creates a desktop shortcut for you.
Plain user interface
Song Director packs a simple, visually design that organizes most of its functions in standard menus while others can be accessed via dedicated buttons on the main window.
This utility does not come with a standard configuration window, but the Options menu enables you to tweak some components, such as resetting warning messages, setting the database location or checking for orphaned pictures.
Organize audio content efficiently
This program can help you manage audio files from your computer in a quick, convenient way, as it provides you with various useful features. It is possible to create a database file on your computer where you can store information regarding your music library. Centralizing the data can prove to be helpful especially if you want to move your files from your computer to another one.
You can add files to your library in three different ways: by importing each item manually, adding a folder’s worth of audio content or scanning the entire drive for appropriate content.
Play audio tracks
Additionally, aside from providing you with organization capabilities, this utility can help you play audio tracks from your computer. Doing so can be accomplished by selecting the desired item from the main window and hitting the Play button.
Tracks can be organized in playlists and can also be assigned to categories so that you can keep track of them easier. Even more, you can use advanced filtering features, in case your library contains a huge amount of entries and need to access specific content.
Handy audio organizer that features advanced filtering and playback support
In conclusion, Song Director is a reliable application that can help you organize audio content from your computer and also play your favorite tracks. It packs a design that encompasses numerous useful functions, including complex filtering, a playlist builder and a category manager.”
“Windows comes with a music player app as standard. If you don’t like it, there are others freely available too, such as Apple’s iTunes. Trouble is, neither of these programs is particularly good. iTunes is huge and unwieldy, and is best kept away from your PC if at all possible. Windows Media Player is OK, but it’s not particularly easy to use.
If you have a lot of music tracks stored on your PC (perhaps as a result of ripping your CD or vinyl collection), then take a look at a neat program called Song Director. Once installed, the first thing you need to do is to choose Add from the File menu, and then tell it to scan your entire hard drive. It will do so, and create a searchable database containing the name and location of every music track (MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV etc etc) it finds.
This makes it really easy to play any song. Just type a few letters from its title into the search box, wait for it to be found, and then hit the Play button. It really is very easy, and is great if you have lots of locally-stored music tracks.
Song Director is free and is at www.songdirector.com. It’s only a 1.1 MB download, and is malware-free according to VirusTotal. It’s also a reputable site according to Web of Trust. Note that the free version only allows you to play one song at a time – you can’t cue up a set of tracks and have them play in turn.
Although the interface does look very dated, the program is still perfectly usable and is supported on all versions of Windows from 7 to 10.”
Review of Song Director from a customer:
“I have been using your Song Director for the last few days. It is by far the best song program out there.
I have one recommendation: Don’t change anything, Don’t try to improve it. Don’t embellish it.
Everyone I’ve come across who has a good program winds up destroying it by “improving” it or adding
stuff that is neither needed or wanted.”
“As for your program:
It took under a minute to index 2000 .wav songs.
Your index look-up is perfect… especially when you get a song in your head but can’t put your finger on it. The random feature is just what I need although it is hard to test. Note that the one car radios use has a tendency to repeat as if they didn’t know what random meant.”

Song Director is great to use on a network
My server tower has over 300,000 songs located on a 4TB external hard drive downstairs. I can access any of these songs with Song Director from my laptop or Windows tablet. I have my laptop connected to my home stereo system upstairs and connected to the wireless network. I play all my songs with Song Director on my large stereo system. I also have a computer office in the loft which can access the network music drive downstairs. I can set up playlists, categories and perform advanced music searches at any location of my home by accessing the 4TB music drive downstairs.
