Hi there purchased a couple of days ago and the site looks great, big thanks to the htmlstream guys, they gave me some great help with some fiddly setup issues.
Import your existing audio assets with a simple drag and drop to get up and running quickly. Import text files to quickly add detailed text information for existing audio assets. Rip your CD audio libraries with full track and index support.
Organize your assets according to their structure on your system, in the form of Libraries. You can also create Sets, in which you can organize your assets by project, talent, character, time frame, or any criteria you desire. Your Sets can have a hierarchy, and an asset can be in as many Sets as needed. In addition, you can create Smart Sets according to any set of criteria and Library Monkey Pro will keep them up-to-date as you add and modify assets.
In addition to creating Smart Sets, you can find specific assets quickly by performing a search. The search can be global or limited to specific Libraries or Sets. You can perform searches inside search results as well. Once you have found specific assets, store them in the Bin while you search for more. Once you're finished, select all the assets in the Bin for processing.
Process your assets with these and many other time-saving features:

Manage your asset library using a powerfully efficient user interface. Save those wasted hours with Sets and Smart Sets, search your selected Libraries with ease using symbol and boolean searches, and recall your recent searches.
While SFX and music librarian companies provide text documents and other forms of reference, they do not have all of the fields that correspond to your production environment. We provide 30 user-defined fields so you can effectively organize your assets exactly the way you like them.
Smart Sets provide instant access to the assets you search for often. Simply create your search criteria and with the click of a button, Library Monkey Pro displays the list of assets that meet that criteria.
You can now import, edit and export ID3 Tags, Vorbis Comments, FLAC Comments, Quicktime Metadata, WAVE Info, Soundminer Metadata, Broadcast Extension, Pro Tools™ Metadata. When converting between formats, any equivalent metadata will be copied to the output file.
Library Monkey has the ability to process files with your user presets in the Finder. Select the desired file(s)/folder(s) and control-click to select the desired preset. Your file(s) will then be processed with those settings. (Due to changes in macOS 10.6, Rapid Convert is only available in 10.5 and earlier).
To improve the speed of searches, you can now select which fields are searched when locating assets.
* Requires 3rd party plugin.
