If there are two version of the same song, TuneUp should suggest removing the one of lower quality, based on sample rate, song length, file size, etc.
Thank you for writing in!
I've forwarded your suggestion on to our development team.
While we can't implement every suggestion, we do review each one.Thank you,
I just bought the gold version and I will be sooooo stoked if you guys release a de-duper!!!
I think that this comment is on target and that the customer service response should be: "we'll do this ASAP." IMO, this is an obvious feature that should have been there from the start. Was honestly expecting this feature to be baked in based on the claims made in the advertising. Not to say I haven't found any benefit to the product, just that this critical aspect of it is missing and you wouldn't realize that at the time of purchase.
Our development team is working hard to push this feature as soon as possible.

I do agree with what is said above: that would be an awesome feature, but there's something else as well.
I do have over 50.000 songs and I wanted to clean up the whole library. Mostly TuneUp is working just great. The only problem I sometimes get is with artists that have over 30 albums and larger albums with over 30 songs. In some cases, TuneUp is ripping apart the larger album and splits it into multiple ones which wouldn't be so bad IF it didn't find find them already before, creating 3 identical albums which results in having duplicates I didn't have before as they were on different albums. The only way to get around this is by cleaning them manually which can be quite annoying when cleaning over 5000 songs at once because you always have to get back to iTunes to check if the album is really existent or not. But hmm.. cleaning 5000 tracks at once isn't the best way to clean either so it's not that bad.. I just wanted to tell ;)
Now for normal duplicates: iTunes is a mess and really doesn't do the job if you use its 'find duplicate feature' as it simply detects songs which have the same name even if they are on different albums. I'm using SuperSync to detect 'real' duplicates and that program is working fine :)
TuneUp and SuperSync combined is the best solution for me to really clean my library as SuperSync has other awesome features to help you manage your songs.
I hope this has been helpful.
cheers and yeah: TuneUp is simply the best around :D
Happy New Year 2 all the staff :)
Thank you for writing in.
Concerning your audio files being separated into individual albums, this is an issue we're currently aware of caused by the way our database provider (Gracenote) takes the audio fingerprints.
Gracenote fingerprints CD's on a track by track basis and odds are that the fingerprints haven't been verified for those "unmatched" tracks so they're not confirmed "matches" in TuneUp.
As of right now, unfortunately manually editing the album name after cleaning is the only way to "force" the album to group back together.
Secondly, concerning duplicates, TuneUp doesn't have any built in de-duplication, but it's something that a few other users have also requested.
It's something that we have on our feature wishlist, but for now you can use iTunes' built in de-duper available from the File > Show Duplicates menu.
We hope to have it as a feature in a near future release - stay tuned!
And as for dragging and dropping 500 audio files or less, because the API provided to 3rd party developers from both iTunes and WMP is extremely slow, TuneUp can only clean a certain amount of songs at one time without bogging down both the media player and our program. Unfortunately this limitation is currently out of our control, but we hope to find a workaround for it sometime in the near future. I apologize for the inconvenience.
All I Ask If this Feature is added I better be able to disable it!
Duper should be allowed to remove all when paused and not wait to go through the large collection I have. After it finds 2300 plus duplicates it then displays dupe all. Well it then hangs as my cpu is using 50% and itunes the other 50% hence lockup.... ugh. If one could remove 200 or 300 at a time instead of one by one during the pause it would be very helpful.
I second the comments above. There is no way to limit the deduper to a smaller set of files so it just keeps running out of memory. For me it is pretty much useless and this was the main reason I bought it.
Actually with the 64-bit version I no longer get the out of memory condition. Now it's not faster, but it does a better job of processing 1000 songs. Also the deduper works well on my large collection where on the latest 32-bit before the upgrade it had mistakes. The cover art also works well. The only thing I've had mixed results on was trying 2k-3k dirty songs to cleanup. I don't get the out of memory condition. It just slows down to a crawl or stops. I would expect with 64-bit processing I could throw more songs in to be cleaned up. Perhaps the runtime memory hasn't been increased? I have 32GB of memory on this machine so with 64-bit processing I would expect to cleanup a larger number of songs at one time. Maybe it's 64-bit but Tuneup doesn't take full advantage of 64-bit processing. t run the 64-bit App store version on OSX Lion.
I installed the newest version of TuneUp and tried to dedup. It takes some 7 hours to move 4000 files into another directory. It should take that long. Before trying to dedup, I deleted the old library, recreated in iTunes. The library only has 16,000 files (since the time to dedup was horrendously long, I broke down the library in pieces and am dedupping little by little).
I am using Windows 7, 64 bits, but the Windows installer only installs the 32 bits version. This shouldn't affect the moving of a file. I would appreciate any suggestions.
Duplicate files unnecessarily occupy space. I found this Duplicate Files Deleter at http://DuplicateFilesDeleter.com quite helpful.
Currently i have about 112k tracks in iTunes and there are several features I really would love to have in this software. One of course is the DeDuper but I am not terribly worried about it as I use another app for this.
The DeDuper should do the following to make it more helpful for me, by differentiating possibly duplicate songs correctly with this in mind:
I hope this helps. I am going to post a "wish list" of things I would love to see in this application and it would truly be a God-send app I absolutely need and recommend to any music lover with large amounts of iTunes music to manage.
