Audio Dedupe 4.0.0.1 Improves Similarity Search By ID3 Title, Artis And Album By Adding Support For Protected M4P And M4R Audio Files

Audio Dedupe can find similar files saved in various file formats by performing true audio analysis that does not require any ID3 tags. The tool will “Listen” to the audio files in order to find similarities in the audio content itself. Exact duplicates or remixes of the same song stored in various audio file formats can be easily identified by the software. Support for most of the popular audio formats  is present and it is easy to organize songs in iTunes, iPod, iPad, iPhone or other mp3 player devices. Here are some of the supported file formats: MP3, MP2, MP1, MPA, WAV, OGG, AIFF, AAC, MP4, FLAC, AC3, WavPack (WV), Musepack (MPC) and Windows Media Audio (WMA) file formats.

The results grid now also shows information for protected M4P and M4R files (bitrate, sample rate, etc.)

Option “Preserve group integrity on sort”

This new option was always ON in the past releases and now it can be disabled in settings. This allows sorting by any property without keeping the grouped files together. This option should be used with caution.

Extended Preview tab with options to Copy/Paste standard audio tags between files

This is particularly useful if a song with a lower quality has better ID3 tags that should be preserved. The tags can now be easily copied to the song with the higher quality.

Three New Audio Search Methods

Yes we have added three new search methods and those are search by similar or duplicate “ID3 Title”, “ID3 Artist” and “ID3 Album”. Though the current search method of Audio Dedupe does not require any ID3 tags and recognizes the similarities between the files by comparing the actual audio content, the new scan methods may be pretty useful in certain cases.

What is cool about this new feature is the fact that it finds also similar items and not just exact duplicates. For example the titles “Take The Power Back”, “Take The Power Back [Remastered]” and “Take The Power Back – Live” will all be matched as similar if the similarity level is set at 70%. This makes it easy to find different versions of the same song.

The log file now provides extra details about damaged audio files that may be present in your audio collection. If you have issues with freezing you can enable logging in settings and after the scan check the log file content which is located in “My Documents” folder and named “AudioDedupe_Log.txt”. Even if you do not have any issues with the Audio Dedupe application it is a good idea to run a scan with the log file enabled in order to identify damaged files and clean your audio collection by removing or repairing them. It is recommended to disable this feature if not needed as it will degrade the performance a bit.

The Key New Features Of The Duplicate Audio Finder Tool

Filtering Duplicate Audio Files

The filtering panel provides a handy new option that makes it possible to filter folders by a phrase including wildcards. If the text “original” is entered – all the folders that contain “original” in the name will be matched. Vertical line e.g.: “copy|backup|bckp” can be used in order to specify and combine several phrases. Using the above example all the folders that contain “copy”,“backup” or “bckp” will be matched. A more sophisticated example is “b??(*)*” – it will match all folders starting with “b” followed by two characters then an opening bracket followed by one character and then a closing bracket followed by any number of characters.

The asterisk denotes that zero or more characters should be present and the question mark denotes that exactly one character should be present at that position. There are unlimited number of combinations that can be created in order to match a specific folder name. A screenshot of the new filtering window is available below:

Filter Duplicate Music Files

Duplicate Music Finder User Interface And Features Improvements

Exclusion from “Auto-check” or from “Self-scan” can now be set for all folders in the list by clicking on the header of the corresponding column. The browse for folder dialog is also updated. If no folders are checked, the currently selected folder is added. This makes it easier to add a single folder to the list and saves the extra click to check it.

Every delete/move file operation that fails displays a HEX (hexadecimal) error code. That makes it easier to isolate the issue e.g. if the files is locked by another application, if the user account used to start the application does not have sufficient permissions to manipulate the file, if the file is stored on a read only media and so on. All the error codes can be found at the Duplicate MP3 Finder FAQ page

“Keep Folder Structure while moving files” is now optional. In previous versions of Audio Dedupe it was ON by default. Name conflicts in cases where there are more files with the same name from different locations that should be moved to the same backup folder are also solved. If the file “Intro.mp3” for example is moved to the same folder from multiple locations the extra copies will be moved with the name “Intro (1).mp3”, “Intro (2).mp3” and so on. While it does not make much sense if the source files are exact duplicates it is useful to preserve the source files if they are similar versions, but not 100% duplicates.

Manage duplicates list – remove duplicate files easier

Version 3.1.0.1 provides two new features for managing the duplicates list. “Remove from List” context menu item is added that will remove the selected entries from the list. If the option “Remove groups that contain single file after move/delete” is enabled in the settings removing an item from a group that contains just two entries will automatically remove the group from the list. This option minimizes the chance of removing unique files from the library.

The other context menu item named “Remove Group from List” will remove the selected group without deleting any files.

Find Duplicate Songs, Organize Music Collections – Audio Dedupe 3.0.0.1 Provides Improved Speed And Accuracy!

Find Duplicate Songs

Remove duplicate songs, organize audio libraries and save valuable disk space with Audio Dedup 3.0.0.1

The new release of Audio Dedupe is packed with plenty of new features and improvements. As you already know Audio Dedupe is a tool that goes beyond the features of the standard duplicate file finders available on the market. Unlike those tools it can find similar songs comparing audio content. This makes it capable of finding similar songs even if they are stored in different audio formats. The standard duplicate finders can not identify even exact audio file duplicates if they are stored in different file formats as they compare file data instead of audio content.

Find Duplicate Songs In Multiple Languages (Full Unicode Support)

While older version of Audio Dedupe could work with two alphabets simultaneously the current version lifts that limit completely. Now the tool can handle files named in any number of languages at the same time. For example files using Japanese, Chinese, Greek, English or other languages in their names can be compared without the need to switch encoding inside Windows.

Find Similar Songs Faster Than Ever

This release utilizes all the cores of a modern CPU. The comparison phase is now multi-threaded. This means that a scan will be 2x, 4x, 8x, etc. faster depending on how many CPU cores you have. There are also additional speed optimizations in the preprocessing phase that provide at least 30% better performance than before.

Improved Duplicate Song Finder Engine

Older versions of Audio Dedupe were limited to a minimum of 90 seconds of audio data necessary in order to compare songs. This limitations is now reduced to just 30 seconds which means that Audio Dedupe can compare more files than before. Usually songs are larger than 2 minutes, but this improvements helps when comparing sound clips or parts of songs.

Duplicate Music Finder Features And User Interface Improvements

Some of the major new features include the improved folders list. It now provides the display of the Exclude From Auto-check and Exclude From Self-scan features. These are handy when comparing two or more folders for duplicates or merging songs from different locations. A “source” folder can be set in order to exclude the items inside from the auto-check feature and make sure that those are not marked for any move or delete operations.

The results grid provides advanced sorting features. The new version can sort the items in the list by preserving the integrity of the groups and also sort the items inside the groups. This means that the list can now be sorted by file size for example in order to get rid of the largest files first.

A “Default” cache is added and used if no cache settings are applied. The currently selected cache is reused for new projects. Using the cache system can dramatically reduce scan time for consequential scans. Scanning files that are cached can be thousands of times faster.

Find Duplicate APE (Monkey’s Audio) and TTA (True Audio) Files

Duplicate MP3 Finder

Duplicate MP3 Finder

The new 2.0.0.1 major release of Audio Dedupe is packed with plenty of new features.

Two new file formats are now added to the supported file formats:

APE – Monkey’s Audio

Monkey’s Audio is a file format for audio data compression. Being a lossless format, Monkey’s Audio does not discard data during the process of encoding, unlike lossy compression methods such as AAC, MP3, Vorbis and Musepack.
Data file compression is employed in order to reduce bandwidth, file transfer time, and/or storage requirements. A digital recording (such as a CD) encoded to the Monkey’s Audio format can be decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data. As with the FLAC and Apple Lossless format, files encoded to Monkey’s Audio are typically reduced to about half of the original size,[1] with data transfer rates and bandwidth requirements being reduced accordingly.

TTA – True Audio

True Audio (abbreviated TTA) is a free, real-time lossless audio codec, based on adaptive prognostic filters. Also, .tta is the generic extension to filenames  of audio files created by True Audio codec.
TTA performs lossless compression on multichannel 8, 16 and 24 bit data of uncompressed wav  input files. The compression ratio of TTA depends on the type of music file being compressed, but after compression the size of output file will generally range between 30% – 70% of the original. TTA format supports both of ID3  v1 and ID3 v2 information tags. APEv2 tags support has been added recently.

Audio Dedupe – What’s New?


Version 2.0.0.1:

  • Added Monkey’s Audio APE files support.
  • Added True Audio TTA files support.
  • Added filter files and folders functionality, so you can exclude files or folders from scanning.
