    Default A tool to delete duplicates from Traktor library

    As Traktor provides no way to delete duplicates from its library, I wrote one. You can find it here https://flowrl.com/librarian
    Current features are:

    - OSX and Windows compatible
    - Smart choice of which duplicates are kept. Files with user set cue points are preferred over files with no user changes.
    - Updates playlists with correct paths
    - GUI and command line modes

    Feedback welcome.

    Cool idea!
    Question: what about when you have the same track but on different releases. Do they count as duplicates?

    ...or the same track twice but one is a demo/single and the other is the album version - both titled the same but one is slightly different in length. I have a lot of these with Indie music.


    Defo cool idea though.

    It compares audio signatures generated by Traktor, which ensures that tracks are identical, even if they have different file names or id3 tags. As for the tracks on different releases, it depends whether they are digitally identical. For example if a track on a different release is slightly edited (for example faded out) it will be considered as a standalone track.

    This is pretty damn cool. I know I could use it.

    Could it be modified to use iTunes library instead of Traktors?

    Nope it only affects the Traktor Library.

    By the way I have released a new version that comes with a simple GUI and also prepackaged binaries. No more command line or missing Python!
