    ..and give me a listing of bitrates? I'm going through my iTunes library and updating some low bitrate stuff and it's a pain in the ass manually scanning everything.

    Also, is there software that will scan MP3s for poor encoding errors? Scrambles, noises, etc?

    in itunes, in list view
    right click on the top colums (ie: artists/albums/song title...)
    add on "birate"
    then just sort by bitrate, find everything you're missing...

    unless i'm not understanding the question correctly :dunno:

    Unless I am also misunderstanding, this is what I would do.

    you can also export the library to CSV and i have a feeling it will be in there too.

    You have to be the most anal iTunes user i've ever encountered.

    i cant help but assume verbal is a DJ due to his sexy A&H av, so bitrate can be kind of a big deal.

    I'm sure there's an iTunes script to scan them and put the lower stuff in a playlist of it's own here.

    To each their own.

    I like my stuff organized and clean. I'd rather look at iTunes or my iPod and see...

    Track Name
    Artst
    Album

    ..with artwork instead of...

    01-Artist_name-track_name_groupthatreleasedit_releaseinformation.mp3

    :hsugh:

    Oh, don't get me wrong, mine is very organized too. But I manually manage all aspects of my music because I don't like how iTunes does it.

    I edit the tags if/when I download music (don't tell on me...)
    I edit how the file is created when I rip a CD into iTunes (completely...I edit all aspects of it before it is permanently added into the library)

    And I make sure I don't have any files under 128kbps.
