You may want to look at Wings.

It may be able to supply all the bells and whistles. I have used it in the past 
and found it great. I only stopped using it when it went onto subscription. The 
latest version, 6, is back to being free. I have thought of going back to it, 
but it would mean having to port several thousand records across from the 
application I am now using. I don't need that angst at the moment. Perhaps when 
I am feeling more masochistic. It is now available for Mac and Windows. It 
still requires a lap/desk top, but it is free of the ties of the internet.
