Aurender - creating an offline list of music


I'm looking for a way to create an offline list of the albums I have on my aurender server. Not to listen, only to see the contents

My challenge is when I'm at the store wondering do I Have this or not? Would be so helpful to be able to pull out my phone or tablet and do a quick search while away from home.

Right now the only option I can think of is to parse the drive from a computer and dump the directory structure to a file, maybe a spreadsheet.  That just seems too much of a pain.

Anyone have a better solution?

I am assuming you’re referring to ripped copies of CD’s on your Aurender server.....since you didn’t catalog your media, the easiest thing would be to take a snap shot of albums in your Conductor app.

It’s never too late to catalog your media, it’s a life saver whenever I am shopping for CD’s or Vinyl. I use ‘CLZ Music’ mobile app to catalog my media.

Yes thats the basic idea. With ose to 2 TB of music its been getting tough to figure out what I need or want to fill in some areas.  I'll look into CLZ.

Was hoping there was a way to create and maintain the catalog mirroring off of the server drive.
@doitwithlife, I am not aware of any Aurender option to create a list, or Excel file, etc. of your stored albums. I am also not aware of any third party software that does this.

Since the Aurender albums are available from your computer, can you find a programmer to write a computer program to create your album list? The program needs to access the albums on Aurender Music1 and Music2 and output the needed content to an Excel File (or ASCII Flat file).

There are several questions that I cannot answer. Does the Aurender stored content include the artist name, album name and whatever other information you might need? Once the Excel File (or ASCII Flat file) is created, you can sort it, as needed, view it on your phone, etc.

I sold my Aurender N10 Server and am waiting for my Aurender N20 to arrive (best guess is mid-November). I suggest you access Music1 on you Aurender and determine if the above information is easily available. Please keep us posted.
@doitwithlife, Please contact Doug at Dougs Scripts.   He has written hundreds of scripts for the MAC Computer that manages playlists, tracks, etc.   Please see:

I have used his Script several times when I was building my album file for my Aurender.  He might be willing to create a Script for you that accesses your Aurender Content and create an ASCII flat file like you requested above.     

I am sure other Aurender users (I would be) might be interested in an Aurender Create ASCII Flat File script and he can sell it.  Please keep us posted.
