Not sure this falls under "gear," but here goes.. How are you guys organizing your audio files? For example, I have a lot of .mp3s organized into playlists in a separate iTunes library that has nothing to do with the music I buy, etc. It's a nice way to organize my thoughts and group things together, etc. but I'm looking for another solution to disassociate my original music and organizational protocols from iTunes altogether. Winamp still seems to be hanging around. What do you guys think?

I'm not organized in general - except when I produce/mix, or when I develop software (then I'm the most perfect perfectionist you could ever have to get along with). Everything else in my life is ordered chaos. ;) As for the music I listen to: My music archive is HUGE. Most of the time I just hit random play and enjoy listening to songs I did not even know I have. And when I want to hear something specific, I simply use the search feature of the Windows Media Player. For reference songs you want to use in your own mixes, you could create a DVD. You usually don't need more than a handful of songs for that purpose, so one disc should do. If you use MP3 files, a simple CD would be more than enough (however, using MP3 tracks for referencing would be bad advice IMO). In Windows you can also create libraries to organize your media files (or folders).

I need to do this more often: "...I just hit random play and enjoy listening to songs I did not even know I have."

For the record Winamp did not do the trick. I could not (as far as I could tell) import any of the playlists I had already created.
