Finding duplicates where you pick the bit rate and format you want!


There are very few apps, if any, that do what this app does for your Itunes music collection. You specify your favorite format and the bitrate you want in your collection. So if it searches and find "Eleanor Rigby" in 128Kbs, 256Kbs, and 320Kbs, you can say I prefer 256Kbs and all of the other "Eleanor Rigby" files are duplicates. Or you can just say keep the highest bitrate. Plus you can say, I favor .m4a over .mp3 and it will take that into account too. It's tough to find music software that searches for duplicates with diffeent bitrates and formats taken into account. It will also optionally consider song length, album title, etc. So if it finds "Eleanor Rigby" on two different albums and I tell it to only find duplicates within the same album, it will keep one copy of the song for each album.

The only thing I would change is to let it work directly against your files. It should't have to be in loaded into Itunes. I would also like to see Flac support if it goes directly against the files.

Great Product!!!



This is a program so awesome that I HAD to write a review. For years I've been trying to find a program to clean-up my MASSIVE iTunes collection. Very few programs did this without me having to select huge amounts of checkboxes to get anything done. This programs does all that crap for you. How hard is it to say 'hey find an exact copy of this song and just mark it for deletion'. This did it within minutes!

Song Sergeant not only protects your playlists (of which I have many) but the interface is SOOOOO well designed! (And just plain Mac fun!) This is EXACTLY what I needed to get rid of the crap on my hard drive. Note; I choose to set start off with removing duplicates where the second ration was set at zero. I recommend starting with this because then you know you are getting the exactly duplicates out of your system first.

Great job to LairWare, this and MPFreaker are amazing well designed programs!

Works, but takes some tinkering…..

Tactical shanking

I want to start off by saying that this app helped me clear out thousands of duplicates, helped me rename songs, and helped me weed out missing songs and such. So, it did what I wanted it to, for the most part. The thing is that it isn't just like scan your library and walk away. You have to tweak some permissions for the program to work correctly or else it will keep telling you it can't delete the file because of said permission problems. I had to personally delete all of my playlist just to get the app to work correctly. All in all, after about two hours of trying to get everything up and running it finally did its job and my library was pretty much sqeeky clean. That is, after two hours, about ten scans, changing the persmissions, and deleting my playlist so the program could work as advertised. I would not reccommend buying this app unless you have both money and time to waste, and a really, really messy library.
