Importing Large Music Library

Hello all. Hope everyone is well during these tough times. I have set up all my music in a folder, and all artists are listed in their sub folders including compilation albums. I am trying to dump the whole folder into Playit Live, but it isn’t allowing me to do so. I have 30,000+ songs in this folder, and it would take forever to input by albums; which is how I’m doing it now.... Please help!! Hoping to input all the music this weekend. Thanks so much for any help! Regards, Craig.

Thanks so much for your help, Mark. Have a great day!

Well Craig,

MP3 Gain is a Sourceforge project

Someone who downloaded it recently said it triggered an antivirus alert so perhaps a degree of caution is needed but I've used it for many years.

A good write up of how to use it is at:

@Mark Hawkins thanks for the reply! That’s probably a good idea... MP3 gain? Can you point me to when I can get this? Thanks for your time.
From bitter experience I can say you need to think hard about your intended music rotation approach and put copies of your music in folders as appropriate. I doubt that you really intend to automatically pick songs from a heap of 30000 tracks. I tried a folder of about 1000 when I first tried PlayIt Live and regretted it. My second attempt was rather more structured (by decade and genre) and that was more usable. I have a similar size master library but PlayIt Live has copies. Your next requirement will probably be to run MP3 gain over the files. Do make a copy before starting.....
