Editors' review

Dupin for Mac allows you to quickly search your iTunes library for duplicate items using filters such as name, artist, album, time, and size, making it easier for you to manage duplicate audio and video items. The app performs well and comes with an accessible interface and excellent functionality. If you have a large iTunes library, you'll love it.

Dupin for Mac searches your iTunes library and identifies duplicates in no time. You'll like the ability to refine your results by date added, highest and lowest bit rate, most and least played, and file size, as it helps you to identify the tracks with the best audio quality. The filter options menu lets you further refine what tracks you would like to keep from your list by allowing you to set bit rate and file extension rules. When we tested the app with an iTunes library containing 34 duplicate items, it took less than a minute to populate file details, making it quite fast according to our standards. Two other nice features: you can export the duplicate item details as a text file, and you can quickly delete duplicate files such as dead tracks.

Dupin for Mac's sorting options, performance, and versatility make it one of the best iTunes duplicate finders available. If you have a large collection of music and want to be able to sort it more easily, this app is definitely for you.

    "Works like a charm"

    August 26, 2014   |   By Freeheela

    Version: Dupin 2.7.4

    Pros

    Fast, easy to use, flexible, very responsive Dev, has a "dry run" feature that allows the user to double-check before nuking something.

    Cons

    A bit spendy.

    Summary

    I wrote a nice big commentary here, but my script filter prevented a script necessary to get this to work. Basically, iTunes creates a lot of garbage files because it often loses libraries, especially ones that are stored on different drive, like a Network Attached Server in my case. That quickly creates enormous collections of duplicate and dead files. Fixing the mess takes many hours to straighten out, and I feel queasy when I think of doing it without the help of this great app, Dupin.

    "Slow with large libraries/many dupes"

    December 29, 2013   |   By M C

    Version: Dupin 2.7.4

    Pros

    Found and removed my dupes, as well as dead tracks.

    Cons

    Took hours to run against an iTunes library of 26,000 items (half just dead tracks). Failed to re-create playlists as advertised.

    Summary

    Does the basics, but there are better and cheaper options out there.

    "Terrible software if you have a large iTunes library"

    January 06, 2011   |   By Tim777777

    Version: Dupin 2.2.2

    Pros

    None that I could discover

    Cons

    Frequentluy freezes even when dealing with a relatively small number of songs (100-200); counter-intuitive; 'help' instructions incorrect; generally frustrating and fails to deliver.

    Summary

    Best avoided unless small library (but then why would you need this software?)

    "Dupin fails to remove duplicate tracks"

    January 08, 2010   |   By jhorvatic_dotmac

    Version: Dupin 2.0.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Dupin fails to remove duplicate tracks, is very very slow, seems to be confused when you click on purge and have de-selected the duplicate tracks you want to be removed. Doesn't do anything after saying purging for hours.

    "Ideal"

    December 22, 2008   |   By netbrick

    Version: Dupin 1.4.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Fast, accurate, flexible and easy to use. My library was about 30,000 songs with about 5,000 dupes. This software found and eliminated them immediately. The time it saved me was worth the cost of the app. I won't need if often, but I got my value out of it on the first use.

    "Excellent app"

    December 04, 2007   |   By Stevierep

    Version: Dupin 1.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have a very large iTunes library, in excess of 17,000 tracks, and inevitably there are going to be duplications. Dupin makes it ridiculously easy to isolate and remove such dupes, best £7.50 I've spent on software for a long time.
