    Default Scrapping tracks and was wondering...

    Finally began sifting through my tracks in iTunes, creating a playlist for the ones I'm scrapping. It's much more than I expected (somewhere in the 500 mark). Is there an easy to delete these from my computer in one fell swoop? Aside from iTunes, I'd be deleting them from my music folder on my desktop and Rekordbox. Any suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks!

    Select all the somgs in the playlist, and then hit delete or back space. iTunes will the ask if you want to remove them from your library, or completely from the computer. Click move to recycle bin, or move to trash (depending on what platform you are using), and you should find that they disappear. Hope this helps.

    Sweet. And this applies to Rekordbox, as well?

    In what way mate? Do you mean will it remove them from rekordbox, or do you mean does the same process apply?

    I mean if they'll also be removed in Rekordbox.

    You called me "mate." Cool.

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure, as I haven't done this process I'm afraid. I would say probably not though, as you have to tell rekordbox what tracks to add, so i am guessing you will have to it what to delete as well.

    when working in an iTunes playlist, I don't think is the case. It will just delete the file from the playlist that was made.

    I don't use Rekordbox very often, but if you can see the playlist you created in Rekordbox, it may have an option to delete from Rekordbox + Delete file from HDD. I know Traktor has this option.
