Editors' Review

Tune Sweeper 4 harmonizes your iTunes library and hard drive by purging entries that aren't on your disk anymore and adding unlisted songs. Duplicates and missing tracks are annoying, but fixing the issue is made easier with Tune Sweeper. It can keep your library tidy in the background, or you can stage mass purges when the issue becomes too big to ignore. Updates to version 4 include Missing Artwork, Fix Track Info, and iTunes Statistics.

Pros

Easy on the eyes: Tune Sweeper 4's tabbed interface is easy to navigate, and its minimalist style complements the look of iTunes.

Search criteria: We could search for duplicates or missing files by track data, time difference, or media types. For example, we could exclude podcasts and TV shows from searches.

Groups: We could also include or ignore all Groups listed.

Cons

Not free: Unlike iTunes, Tune Sweeper 4 is shareware, not freeware, but it's free to try with limited functionality (duplicates can't be removed).

Bottom Line

Tune Sweeper 4 isn't free, but at just under 20 bucks it might be a bargain, especially if your library is big. If you've let things go too far and now have tons of duplicates and missing songs in your ever-growing, all-important iTunes library, Tune Sweeper 4 can help you clean up the mess.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Tune Sweeper 3.08. The trial version has limited functionality.

"Neat and effective tool - on balance, worth the money"

May 27, 2015  |  By Peter Broadhurst

 |  Version: Tune Sweeper 4.06

Pros

Straight forward interface. Does it's job well.
Saved me a huge amount of time, and had exactly the options I was looking:
- compare by name + time, and keep the highest quality
- fill in missing artwork

Cons

Little pricey.
Hit a bit of instability, but support team were responsive.

Summary

Really neat and effective tool. Doesn't have to save much of your time to justify the price tag.

"Time Saver"

April 27, 2015  |  By brianpoche

 |  Version: Tune Sweeper 4.06

Pros

I have accumulated a vast collection of songs and remixes from different sources across the past years, and it's always a very time consuming labour to delete duplicate songs especially when it comes to remixes. Tune Sweeper does the job nicely, and also tries to intelligently clean up broken tracks. I also had whole forgotten folders of mp3s on my harddrive which were not in iTunes, which Tune Sweeper found, sorted and added. I also like the option of adding missing album art and information, which is very handy especially for old tracks

Cons

So far so good, it has worked fine
