    Default Tools for missing tag data

    Just wondering if anyone has tried TuneUp for missing tag info and artwork? How does it work with dance music for DJ's etc

    I remember seeing a tool on one of the other Traktor sites but have a feeling it was for older versions and didnt work with latest versions of traktor?

    Any other recommendtations for tidying up iTunes data?

    This is an interesting question. I know that I have had to go back in and relabel tracks in TPro. I wonder, if such a program exists, if it exists for the S4 software as well...

    This is the shit!!!

    The latest 2.0 is in beta now, but hopefully will be out in a few weeks.

    Funny thing is i use it for everything except missing tags and art. What do you guys use those tags for? I don't like viewing Art it's just one more thing that clutters the GUI for me, and as long as I have track title and artist, i'm good. What other tags do you guys use, maybe lable? I think i get more from my custom tags.

    Either way I'm a big fan of Trainspotter. Will have to check out Tune Up.

    Hands down, you gotta try MusicBrainz. http://musicbrainz.org/

    It probably won't have all the obscure artists but the major ones, for sure...

    OK-nice. I have heard Trainspotter mentioned alot, but was never familiar with what it did. I will have to check these out.

    Wait for trainspotter 2.0, i've got the beta and it's pretty sweet. Careful with genre tagging though, it can end up giving you hundreds of subgenres.
