July 2, 2015 in iTunes (E)
[prMac.com] Stafford, United Kingdom - Whether you need to remove exact iTunes duplicates or multiples of the same song across albums, the newly released Mac OSX software, Tune Sweeper 4, contains a variety of criteria that can be applied to tailor the search and removal. You can either manually review the duplicates found and pick which tracks to keep, or let Tune Sweeper 4 pick for you based upon your preferences. With just a couple of clicks, all of your duplicates can be removed.
Tune Sweeper 4 also brings with it several new key features that make managing iTunes libraries even less of a chore. One of the main new additions is the ability to fix missing track information. All common music formats such as MP3 and M4A can store track metadata. This is information such as the title of the track, and the name of the artist and album. All of this information is used by iTunes and other media players to sort, group and display tracks.
Using the new 'Fix Track Info' feature, Tune Sweeper 4 uses an advanced digital fingerprinting algorithm to identify tracks that are missing metadata. Once each track has been identified from a database of over thirty-five million tracks, the obtained track information can be stored to the file and instantly updated in iTunes. If multiple potential releases are identified for a track, Tune Sweeper 4 allow selection of a preferred match.
Another new feature of Tune Sweeper 4 is its missing artwork functionality. Tune Sweeper identifies and downloads the appropriate artwork for any tracks in iTunes that currently have none. Track artwork makes it much easier to visually identify albums and tracks at a glance both within iTunes and also on audio devices such as iPods.
Other new features of Tune Sweeper 4 include an iTunes Statistics section that displays interesting statistics such as 'Most played artists' and 'Top Genres'. Tune Sweeper 4 also brings a new modern interface that makes using the software more accessible and easier than ever.

Tune Sweeper 4 is priced at $24.99 (USD) and available immediately. The software is compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 or higher, as well as with Windows 7 and 8.
