    Default Capable music manager for OSX?

    I recently switched to OSX where I don't have the magnificent jRiver Media Jukebox to organize my music. There's Paralells and the music is stored on a exFat volume which both OSX and Windows can write but I want something native.

    I'm looking for a music manager/player with the following features:
    • Play music and have a "now playing" playlist
    • In-place editing of tags
    • Rename and move files based on tags
    • Easily replace the coverart
    • Don't mess up Traktor Tags


    I already tried these which didn't meet my requirements:
    • iTunes
    • Clementine
    • Tagalicious
    • Songbird


    Please don't turn this into debate on whether iTunes is the shit or not! For me personally it's just shit and I need something which suits my needs better.

    That's sad, I live and die with iTunes match where I sync 5 computers including (smart) play lists, id3 tags and whatever so I could get my latest sets anywhere I need or wish. What a time saver!

    You may be out of luck; most OS X users use iTunes and Songbird is the only other one I've heard given a nod from DJ-types. Hopefully someone will tell me I'm wrong; I like iTunes ok but it has some problems and I would love to have other options.

    I will try Audiofinder.

    Songbird is pretty good already. I will probably customize it to my needs and release a DJ version.
    So tell me what you'd like to see!

    Looking forward to the DJ version of Songbird. Will give some thought to what I would like included.
