Before digital music libraries, album collections were plagued by scratches, damage from space heaters, and English teachers who corrected intentional misspellings of "lead" and "beetle." Celebrate the new frontier of audio enjoyment with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get lifetime access to the TuneUp digital music-managing plug-in (a $49.95 value).
TuneUp Media’s music cleanup app melds with iTunes or Windows Media Player to better organize and categorize sonic libraries. Four software systems delve into digital music collections, beginning with the clean function, which uses waveform recognition to hunt down song titles for unnamed tracks and correct misspellings of performers’ names. Cover-art functionality locates missing album artwork, and DeDuper frees up valuable hard-drive space by identifying and purging duplicate tracks and bands storing their road cases in the computer. For an exciting way to expand on the audio experience, Tuniverse also scours the World Wide Web for info related to the artists populating the user’s library, updating them with videos, live concert info, and what flavor licorice their favorite guitarist uses for strings.
