remove duplicate music on mac

My iTunes music library was messed up after importing music tracks from ripped CDs. Now there are many duplicate songs so I am searching for an effective method to remove those duplicates.

It is a MacBook Air

Or in iTunes just click “show duplicates”

Another method would be to arrange Songs by date.

If you know the duplicate happened on 4th November for example, you batch delete all the songs created on the 4th of November.

Providing you didn’t add any since, all the latest will be duplicates.

I have over 44,000 songs in my library. I know how annoying it can be sometimes. Hope this helps.

Yes of course but what I’m saying is

(For example) on the 10th day you had 1000 songs

On the 11th day you now have 1100

All the duplicate songs will have been created on the 11th day

So, filter songs by date and highlight all from the 11th (latest)

If the total is 100 you know they are all your duplicates

This can be done in iTunes or a file browser on your computer.


Also, if you mean you wish to keep 1 copy of the new imported duplicate files, cut n paste ALL of them to a safe location using the above method

It’s likely you will have songs listed as

Funkypop

Funkypop(1)

Do a file search of “(1)” and it should list half of everything. Delete all songs with (1) at the end and you should be good

The final solution is using third-party app like this post shares. Hope this helps.
Not in same data and some of the music with different names. that's tricky part, ll

Way 1 – Find duplicate files on Mac manually
Open the Finder window.
Go to Apple Menu → File → New Smart Folder.
Click a Plus button in a top right corner and select Search parameters: Kind, Date, Name, File type and others.
