If you're a staunch iTunes user then you probably won't find much use for a tool like MusicBox. If, however, you like to keep your options open when it comes to which music application to use, then MusicBox could be for you.

Music Box is simply a handy database for your music files that aims to help you organize them and keep them in order. It allows you to instantly find which CD or DVD a particular track appears on and organize your tracks into as many categories and subcategories as you need. You can also read and edit the meta data information of the tracks - including ID3 tags, iTunes tags and AAC tags. You can edit most major music formats including MP3, AAC, MP4, Ogg Vorbis, Monkey's Audio and FLAC.

If any of your songs are unlabeled, Music Box will automatically try to retrieve information using either the MusicBrainz or Amazon CDDB database. Of course, in addition to all this, tracks can also be grouped by artist, album, genre, volume or category. Mostly Music Box is easy to follow and use. However, there do seem to be some issues with tagging. Occasionally random characters may plague your track names and album listings although for the most part, it works very well.

MusicBox is an extremely powerful music tagging and cataloging tool for those that need complete control over their collection.
