iTunes is a great program for quickly and efficiently organizing all of your royalty free music and sfx. When you're working on a video and need to quickly find the music you want this method of organizing will really help out.

I dunno - I have iTunes on my box because my wife loves her iPod Touch but cannot firgure out how to rip music (we have over 1000 RIAA approved/PURCHASED CD's between us) or work iTunes in general (I must say I have a difficult time with Apple products - I have written DBMS's and OS's but iCant's confuzzle me).

Hmmm. I could see if your not familiar with itunes that this might not be the best approach. If you can figure out how to use it, it's really is helpful since it has alot of the same features of something like Soundminer which is basically the standard for SFX guys in Hollywood. But itunes is free. Soundminer is thousands of dollars. It does have it's quirks though.

For Sound FX, since I have all four of Digital Juice's Sound FX libraries, I use their front-end (The Juicer) to find what I need - It's far from a perfect solution but it works OK for me. IF DJ doesn't have it, I manually look thru the rest of my libraries and failing a match there will purchase what I need on an individual basis.

At some point I'll write an Access app that catalogs all my RF stuff.
