Let’s Get Your iTunes Library Organised

Have you ever noticed that a few tracks in your iTunes library, which belong to the same album have got organised as if they are from two different (yet identical) albums? (By identical, what I mean is that the details such as “Album Artist”, “Album Title” and even “Album Artwork”). Today, I will show you how to get this solved.

First, make sure that your computer is running the latest version of Apple iTunes (The current version is 12.4.1). If the issue persists after updating, please follow the procedure given below:

  1. In iTunes, locate the tracks that belong to the same album but have been organised into two separate (yet identical) albums.
  2. Delete each track from the identical albums. When deleting tracks, click on “Delete Song” and then on “Keep File”. This will make sure that the files remain in the computer without their details (such as “Album Artist” and “Album Title”) getting affected.
  3. Click on “File” and then on “Add to Library”.
  4. When the Finder (in Mac OS X) or File Explorer” (in Windows) opens up, locate the files that need to be added.
  5. Finally, select the files and click on “Open”.

 

After following this, you will notice that the tracks have now got organised into the same album.

Hope this helps.

Feel Those Beats

Recently, I have been listening to more hip-hop songs, especially the ones produced by Timbaland. According to what I feel, he is the best producer of hip-hop music. Timbaland has worked with so many pop artists such as Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, JAY Z and Nelly Furtado.

I thought of producing my own hip-hop, R&B and dance tracks and the results were satisfactory. These have been shared in my Soundcloud page and on Twitter but I will share them at the end of this post. Various instruments such as piano, drums, koto and violin have been used in the production stage. I use Apple Logic Pro X for music production. A bit of Photoshop was also learnt to create cover art.

Well,┬ácheck the tracks out. I hope you’ll love them. If you like my tracks, please “like” and “share” them on Soundcloud and other social media.
