    Hello Composers,

    I just wanted to let you know that the Mac version of Composer Catalog is now available. For those who do not know what Composer Catalog is, it is software that designed to help me keep my music tracks organized.

    You can download a free fully functional trial at http://www.composercatalog.com
    The only limitation in the trial is that you can only have 5 tracks.

    Thanks!
    Keith

    Hey Keith, it looks awesome. I would probably need it to run on multiple computers (networked or copying the file and working on it while on the road). Any chance you could make that work in the future?

    Hi Mark-

    Right now, you can:
    1) Export your database and license key
    2) Uninstall your license key from computer 1
    3) Install license key and import database to computer 2

    So you can move it from computer to computer. Using it on networked computers would be tricky, due to the licensing key.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks!

    Hi Keith,

    congrats and thanks, this product will fare well. Just one quick question. How do you import data into your software, can you import an excel doc, or can you import mp3’s and their metadata directly. Thanks and best of luck,

    MM

    Hi Guys-


    @MusicMatters
    – you can import by setting up a CSV file with the pertinent information or just “point” to an audio directory with your files. Keep in mind that by pointing to your audio files will not import any meta data. That still needs to be entered into the system.

    If you take a look at the overview video, it might better explain it (it is on http://www.composercatalog.com)

    You can always download the trial. It comes with a CSV template that will show you the format that you need to have your records in. You can also edit a group of tracks that you just imported and apply metadata values to them (for instance, if you have 40 tracks on the csv file, import it, highlight those 40 tracks, and then set the genre to “Rock”. This can be done with many of the fields.


    @Mike
    – Thanks! That interview was a lot of fun…almost too much fun 🙂

    Please let me know if you have any questions and feel free to download the trial.

    I am always looking to improve the program (I am a composer as well), so use the contact form and send me your suggestions.

    Right now, I am looking into being able to export your tracks to a csv file. This could be useful for a publisher that wants your tracks, moods, instruments, etc. Also, can be helpful for co-writing situations. One person enters the data and the other person can just import that data into their application. It will be a free update.

    Thanks!
    Keith

    Hi Alan, Your spreadsheet sounds pretty amazing. Have you ever shared it with anyone? Not being very good at spreadsheets, I have been looking for a template to start with. Thanks, David 🙂

    @toodamnhip. Spreadsheets like Alan created are not that hard. Just do a bit of research and you should be able to create it easily.
