iTunes Library to move without messing everything up!
Posted on 2010-11-18
Hi. I am a dj and i have quite a big digital music collection (almost 3K songs). The thing to know is that I buy my music at Beatport.com and 90% of the file format is .WAV
I buy this format because the sound and the bass is better in clubs sound systems than mp3. After purchase I convert my music in MP3 for various other use like listening in my iPod.
The thing is that I have manually entered the song info (label, genre, track, artist) for each and every songs! But in WAV format, the ID3 tag info is not kept into the song file. As long as I keep my info in iTunes and don't move it, the info will stay.
But now I bought a portable external HD to bring in gigs and want to consolidate all my music at the same place.
I have a lot of other mp3 in other cds that i want to consolidate there also.
This HD will have 2 major folders :
The thing is that i really want to manage my music myself. I want to decide when i get new music to put it, for example, a Pink Floyd song in my already made OtherMusic/PinkFloy/ folder.
There's also other details but, if you are very good in iTunes songs and library managing you'll help me along the way.
