Used a couple times, maybe an hour of experience so far. Can't even understand what's happening yet! No simple 1-2-3 steps. Rather, 4 split panes, so many blobs of info, too many panes, columns, lines and subtleties, AND NO CLEAR WORKFLOW / DIRECTION to go!! The UI is so confusing!! Seriously, since when mp3 tagging became a science? Cmon geeks, USABILITY!! 1-2-3, BAM! Life's too short... Cluster: what's that? It's scary!! Lookup / Scan: why 2 buttons, isn't it the same thing? What's the work flow ? With a GUI, it should be obvious: step 1 do A, then 2 = B, 3 = C, etc etc... Why is there so many buttons and places to click ? Ah what the heck, maybe we should just pay for a USABLE tool! ;-) See More
MusicBee can be skinned which can significantly change the appearance of a player. To apply a skin, it must first be downloaded, moved to the appropriate folder, and after restarting MusicBee, it can be applied. A collection of skins can be found here. It's also possible to customize the layout by choosing which panels to display. See More
Your media library is stored in a flat file rather than a traditional database, limiting its ability to manage truly massive collections of audio files, but offering far reduced processing overhead for small to medium-large collections. See More
There are detailed instructions in the community forum describing how to create a suitable WINE prefix in which to install MusicBee with nearly all the features operating as they do in Windows. There is also support for Linux using CrossOver by CodeWeavers, who offer an automated installer to accomplish the same result on nearly all major Linux distributions as well as Google's ChromeOS.
