Here is a good article on discussing the issues with organizing large amounts of digital music collections. This is what Song Director Software can help you with.

Current research on music information retrieval and music
digital libraries focuses on providing access to huge,
public music collections. In this paper we consider a
different, but related, problem: supporting an individual
in maintaining and using a personal music collection. We
analyze organization and access techniques used to manage
personal music collections (primarily CDs and MP3 files),
and from these behaviors, to suggest user behaviors that
should be supported in a personal music digital library
(that is, a digital library of an individual’s personal music

Computer Recording Software Explained
Here is a good article about recording software I thought would be good to share

Computer recording software is perhaps the most difficult part of home recording. There are so many audio recording programs available. They all do the same thing, or do they? And how do they work – how to use them? (Further down on this page.) Don’t worry, we’re about to find out. This page is designed to help you figure out what you need.
In short, computer recording software translates between you and your audio. It lets you do stuff with it. It mixes it. It applies processing to the audio. The audio recording program will work between you (with the screen, keyboard, and mouse) and your audio recording interface. It takes the sound from your audio inputs and records it to hard disk.
Choosing computer recording software
There are many ways for music recording software to look, or design the user interface. Various programs aim for different functions. Some are designed for maximum midi integration. Others work well with loops or creating music through small samples that are repeated. When you look at the big players, they do it all.
In my opinion, if you are serious about recording, and want something that will serve you well, you will eventually go with a bigger computer recording software package. It’s not worth it to keep trying to limp along on something that limits your creativity and makes you spend time on non-musical things.
But because you must get started somewhere, here are my free recording software suggestions. My advice? Use them to get a feel for things, then move on to a demo of a better product.

Song Director is a new music organizer and player offered as a free and easier-to-use alternative or complement to iTunes and Windows Media Player. This new program provides more extensive organizing and search capabilities than either of those programs.
Simplicity and ease-of-use has been the dominant goal during every phase of development and testing.
Song Director automatically scans your computer for audio files and builds a searchable database of all your music. Once this database is built, you unleash the full power of a modern database system to search, play, and organize your music. Quickly build playlists, export to other devices, or sort and search your music in countless ways. Searches for songs or artists are quick by simply typing the first few letters of a song title or artist. You can then play that song or add to a playlist with one click. Alternately, create advanced searches based on any criteria, going far beyond the search capabilities of iTunes and WMP.
Song Director is available by free download from SONGDIRECTOR.COM
Song Director is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. including on Windows tablets using these operating systems.
Song Director automatically catalogs and plays your music files. Finds all MP3, M4a AAC, iTunes, WMA, WAV, OGG and FLAC files on your PC. It’s the perfect Music Player Database software. Download for FREE
