Last year, a friend of mine who is a DJ gave me a copy of his entire music library. Since then I have gotten into being a DJ myself. Going through all the songs he gave me is a pain, because they all seem to be in different formats for artist names, song names, descriptions. I am going to a assume that a lot of these were torrented or pirated, but I honestly have no clue how he acquired most of these songs. Currently I have around 45,000 songs, most with missing album artwork, weird names that include website addresses, as well as some songs that have 8 or more versions of the same song. I was recommended to use this website (app?) to help sort out and organize my library.
I have tried playing around with the picard app, but to be honest, i don’t really have any sort of a clue what I’m doing. I am fairly good with computers, but I am new to music, so I don’t know what a lot of things are.
How do I get this program to scan my entire library, and fix all the info for my songs? I want all the website name crap removed, weird symbols in the song names removed (unless they were intended to be there). I also would like album artwork for my songs.
Please help, I am in way over my head trying to organize 44,000 songs 0__0
