    Default Is there anyone else who does not use iTunes?

    Over time I've seen a lot of iTunes threads on here particularly to do with import to DJ software.

    I only ever use itunes to load music onto ipods & iPhones (a few kicking around here), as soon as I'm done I delete the library again and I'm just wondering if I'm in the minority?

    I have Traktor & RecordBox, my music is held in a partitioned drive in my mbp and slpit by genre and years, my logic is I donít need a third music management library.

    So, I'm I missing out on something? Or does my method keep things clean and simple?

    Hate itunes.
    My music management library is called win explorer Sorted by genres, filenames sorted, mp3 id3 v1 & v2 tags sorted & synced.
    People talk about itunes smart playlists but I see no appeal to them.

    I use Itunes for syncing Apple devices too, and for general listening; but I do most of the file management using the folders themselves. Helps massively when transferring music between computers.

    I detest iTunes. Tried setting it up when I got Traktor and thought it was crap. (for the umpteenth time)

    I guess I'm just old school because I just use Windows Explorer to "manage my files," foobar to prep them for digital use and mixed in key for musical key "guesses"

    Same here. I use serato mainly, but I get a lot of untagged stuff and make a lot of one off items, and can't be arsed to have everything tagged.
    Not to mention, my MP3 collection dates back to like 1997...waaaay too many files to go through and clean up.

    I also often use other pieces of software, and like the fact that my folder structure is the same between all different programs.

    I hate itunes. I have an android phone and my ipods get wiped and installed with rockbox so no itunes is needed.
