Consolidating different folders in itunes
On the Info tab, you'll find various fields to edit.
I'm a big fan of shuffling songs via genre (jazz shuffle during dinner, reggae shuffle on Sunday morning, a blues shuffle nearly any time of day), so I keep a close watch on how an album is categorized in this regard.
What better way to end our month of Spring Cleaning than with the odious task of cleaning and organizing your sprawling i Tunes music library.
You may have started with the best intentions, but over the years the metadata got away from you.
For example, some albums I perceive as reggae get categorized as World, so I will change them to Reggae for my reggae-genre-shuffling enjoyment.
Genres in i Tunes are selected via a pull-down menu and many are similar to one another.
I don't listen to enough alternative and punk music to have a genre for Alternative and another for Alternative & Punk.
So, when I import an album and i Tunes classifies it as Alternative & Punk, I change it to Alternative. Same for the Electronic, Electronica, and Electronica/Dance genre choices and the Country and Country & Folk genres.
In my experience, i Tunes is successful in finding artwork for more mainstream releases and occasionally surprises me by finding more obscure albums, so it's worth a quick check before preceding to method 2.Or perhaps you were a mess to begin with and ditched your beloved collection for the simplicity and ease of a streaming service such as Pandora, Rdio, or Spotify.If you take a little time to wrestle with the data behind your files in i Tunes, you may rediscover the greatness of your underused or abandoned music collection.Thus, after you consolidated your i Tunes library, all your i Tunes contents will be stored in a single place.
Simply use Copy Trans Tune Swift, if you want to transfer i Tunes to an external drive or another folder on your computer.
Luckily, there are a number of methods--some free, some with small costs--that can make this process easier.
