Music Cleanup for Mac provides a quick, efficient way to tidy up your music library.
One of the biggest problems I have with my iTunes library is keeping it clean. When I import new music, I try my best to make sure that the track is labeled properly and that the artwork matches it as closely as possible. Unfortunately, I do end up with duplicate tracks. Fortunately, developer Tenorshare has created a wonderful app called Music Cleanup for Mac.
Music Cleanup for Mac helps users to clean their iTunes music library quickly and efficiently. Music Cleanup for Mac deletes duplicate tracks and fixes missing and mislabeled music information.
- Automatically downloading missing album artwork & covers
- Fix missing songs, artists & album titles
- Customize music info like artist, song name, album and artwork
- Clean up both iTunes and external music folders
It’s easy to lose track of your music library when you are downloading tracks from iCloud or other sources. Music Cleanup for Mac solvers your music clutter problem. It’s very easy to use. You simply open the program and it automatically detects your iTunes library. Once Music Cleanup analyzes your library, it will show you a count of your total songs, undefined songs and duplicate songs.
Duplicate songs are my biggest problem with my library. My song count for duplicates was 43. That is a much smaller number than other times when I scan my library. Music Cleanup will give you a list – either in icon or list view – of the tracks that are classified at duplicate. It appears that the app identifies duplicates solely on the title of the track. I have a lot of songs – Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, for example – that I have different versions of from different artists that I want to keep. So, I would not recommend assuming that all the duplicates are worth getting rid of. Be sure to review all the tracks and evaluate them on a case-by-case basis.
Along with the duplicate clean-up mode, you have the option to delete duplicated songs completely, which will free up hard drive space. But, as I said above, be sure to review the duplicates as they may not all be songs you want to get rid of.
Something that I really enjoy about Music Cleanup for Mac is that it allows you to manually enter track information rather than filling it in arbitrarily. It’s got an easy-to-use interface that is a little more friendly than iTunes for doing something like this. Plus, if you have duplicate tracks, you can cleanup their data while viewing the tracks side-by-side.
Music Cleanup supports many types of audio file formats including MP3, M4A, WAV, AAC, OGG, APE and FLAC. It is compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), 10.9 (Mavericks), 10.8 (Mountain Lion), 10.7, and 10.6.
I can recommend Music Cleanup as a nice, easy to use utility for your music libraries. It can be purchased through Tenorshare for $39.95, which is a 50% discount from its original price. Tenorshare does offer a free trial version, which I would recommend if you are unsure about its performance.
