    Frontend with decent performance?

    Can anyone suggest a frontend that is capable of dealing with large libraries? I'm getting sick of waiting eons to make a search or wait for my playlist to populate.

    I am not sure how big your list is, but try Roadrunner.

    I'm one of the few members who actually makes use of his carputer instead of having a signature forever pegged at "80%"

    I'm not trying to act ungrateful because as a software engineer I know how much time and effort these guys are devoting to their respective projects. I just want to know if anyone has noticed database improvements during their own experimentation.

    I looked at using an DBFS, but there isn't a decent windows implementation yet so that was a no go.

    have you defragged your drive? might help a little!

    what is the size of your collection out of interest?

    How big is your library.. I use frodo 1.10 and it is sufficiently fast for me with 5000+ songs

    it does take about a second or so to fill the all music list.. but thats ok.. since I mostly use custom play lists to listen to my music anyways
