Need a better way of keeping track of your important audio files? If so, take a closer look at Library Monkey.

Library Monkey allows you to import audio tracks including iTunes and will even convert them to different formats courtesy of a special Sound Grinder. Simply drag and drop audio files into the Library Monkey window and you're done. Library Monkey is integrated with Finder and allows you to create Smart Sets to automatically organize your assets by any criteria you desire.

The search functions in Library Monkey are particularly impressive. You can perform complex searches using symbols and Boolean options. You can also save and refine searches via the recent searches via the Recent Searches list.

The interface of Library Monkey is very cluttered and it could do with simplifying to make the different features more obvious. However, if need something other than iTunes to catalog music, you'll definitely find it worth persevering with.

Library Monkey is a solid way to organize your audio files.
