Should you own a closet filled with clothes, you know what it is like to have a mess that should be sorted and cleared up. Well, your iTunes music collection isn’t any different whatsoever. Sometimes too many songs that you have aren’t tagged properly, many of them are missing album names and artist names, some may have wrong track titles and many may not have any album art. If you were to try to cleanup your music collection manually, this could take weeks of tedious work, to say the least.
The best way to alleviate this case is to execute a quick and successful and almost hassle-free iTunes cleanup. Below are great tips to help you accomplish this goal:
Do a back-up of your iTunes library
Delete the music that you don’t want to keep
Perform a manual deletion of all duplicates
Take advantage of software to get rid of bulk duplicates, particularly if you possess a large library
Remove deleted files which remain listed in your library
When your library is free of charge of duplicates and deleted files, you are able to backup and come to be MP3
Fix meta data or information, erroneous song titles or album info – try fixing one album or folder at a time and saving over your back-up
Rebuild your iTunes library after making sure of the back-up above
Straighten out and update your album artwork
You might opt the way of registering to a software to do this job for you. Enter ‘Tune Up’, your music’s new best friend, as some refer to it. The TuneUp iTunes cleanup product can be subscribed to free of cost, cleaning up to 500 songs. Over and beyond that, you are able to sign up for an one year unlimited song cleanup subscription for $11.95, as well as a life time subscription of $19.95 (limited offer).
The TuneUp iTunes plug-in is by far the simplest way to clean up all of the patchy and scattered information inside your iTunes. All you have to do is drag and drop songs into TuneUp.
So how exactly does the TuneUp iTunes cleanup work? Remembering that every piece of music, regardless of from what source, includes a certain audio signature, TuneUp will then compare that signature with the online music database ‘Gracenote’. It will then retrieve all the information and album art concerning the song and just put it in iTunes. Voila!
TidySongs is yet another automatic cleanup tool which will alleviate the painful manual procedure for going through one song at a time to repair the missing information on your song list. If you choose to go this route, all you’ve got to complete would be to download the TidySongs application. Since it is an aura application download, once the download is completed, you will end up with a ZIP file on your desktop. Once unzipped, the applying is able to be launched.
