    I've used this program for sometime now and it has never been a smooth ride. Pretty well every time there's an update, something somewhere breaks. I've had enough of the bugs now and I'm moving on. The developers are non-responsive and the moderators on their forum have got a bad attitude as well, which doesn't help when so much is constantly in need of fixing. It gets 2 stars for what it does do, but that has barely changed in years. Keep your money in your pocket.

    I don't actually pay for much software. But this I have. My music collection is rather large, and MM really takes care of it all. Plays, tags, renames, streams, etc...Everything. As far as performance goes, I find that it runs well on my setup. quad core intel 8gb ram, even with many other applications running. It reads UPNP servers easily. Just a great program. A few quirks on the interface I would rather not have, but meh, no biggie.

    The current build is not a beta as it currently says here. It is a developer build. It has a number of known bugs (15 urgent ones according to their website).

    Stick with version 3 if you don't like being a tester or need stability. You can run version 4 alongside version 3 if you like to test but want to keep your stable version clean of problems. Rating is of version 3, the current release build.

    This app is pretty good as a music organizer. But as a player it's too bloated and ugly. I prefer XMPlay, also skinable, but way lighter on its feet and much prettier skins.
