Consolidating itunes library itunes 10
Since I have done a proper pass on existing tag information and have added new tag information I now have to take another pass through the Artist field once more.
My third step is to get album covers for the ones that were missing.
I’m not a big fan of how i Tunes organizes it’s library.
I tend to think in terms of genres instead of one lump sum.
The other tricky genres I picked were Oldies, Vocals, Lounge, and R&B.Vocals tend to be like Frank Sinatra or Bing Crosby, where it is not necessarily Jazz but more Pop.Oldies are also a little on the fuzzy side, but for the most part they encompass non-Jazz, pre 1960’s music.So step one is to go through all compilations and making sure that they where tagged as such in i Tunes.Unfortunately, while you can see if they have the proper tag information in Media Rage, there seems to be a bug where if you try and change it as a batch it actually does not stick change the files, so you need to manually go through each song one by one to mark it as a compilation. After trying out a few programs, such as Amazon Cover widget, Fixtunes, Media Rage, and even i Tunes itself, with each having it’s pros and cons, I went with Cover Scout.
