Review: Tune Up

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

For the last three or four years I’ve told myself that I would go through my iTunes library and clean it up. With close to 19,000 pieces of media (I’m a podcast junkie) the Track 01, Untitled, and blank names fill my iTunes library. Kevin Rose mentioned a new program on Diggnation called Tune Up. At first I was skeptical but decided to check it out. I’m so lazy when it comes to my music library, yet I always want it cleaned up.

Can I just say, WOW! I started out with the music that had no names to them, or had the generic track names. I was expecting it to get about half. Out of close to 1,000 songs it missed 22; that’s not bad at all!  That wasn’t even the best part.

One of my biggest pet peeves with my music is that an artist can be pulled into iTunes under so many different names. For example: The Beatles, Beatles, thebeatles, beatles, TheBeatles, you get the idea. With 15 different names for my Beatles collection I decided to put TuneUp to the test. They now are all named “The Beatles”. I started from a and I’m working my way to z to get all of my artists and albums finally synced up.

The one thing that has been a slight downside is that it recommends only doing 500 songs at a time. To be honest, it’s not a problem with the program; it’s what your computer can handle. I’ve been running between 500 and 700 at a time and then running a save of them all over night and it’s working perfectly. It does take a bit of time to run through it, it’s obviously not an instant process but at the end of the day when it’s all said and done, the process is worth it.

A one-year subscription is $19.99 and a lifetime subscription is $29.99. Hurry up; they’re having a Halloween sale!!!
