Need Audio Database Software. Any Ideas?

Hello,
I work in a recording studio and we have thousands of stereo performance tracks that many artists use that we work with. Currently these tracks are stored on DAT and CD. We have an Excel database with all of the info for each tape/cd and labels to make it easy to find each item when needed.

What I would like to do is digitize all of these tracks into protools and store them in playlists in itunes for simple retrieval. Each playlist would be titled the corrasponding Excel database number, and each track would contain all info needed. However, I have heard of many post houses that share sound fx libraries over a fibre channel network and have databases to access and search the fx.

I was wondering if anyone new about any of these programs and could offer some helpful feedback?

Thanks

I can't help feeling you're over-complicating things.

As long as each piece of audio has a unique ID then a simple Access or Excel database should suffice. No need for all this iTunes stuff. I don't see what a playlist adds to the process.
