Audio Dedupe Music Manager $400 Giveaway – Organize Music Libraries, Remove Duplicate Songs and Find Similar Audio Files

Remove Duplicate Songs

Remove Duplicate Songs

MindGems Inc. is Giving Away 10 Licenses for Audio Dedupe PRO Music Manager Worth $400 – Remove Duplicate Songs and Organize Audio Libraries

Audio Dedupe will “Listen” to songs in order to find similar and duplicate audio files. The tool can find duplicate MP3 files and 18 other popular audio formats.

It will list all similar and duplicate songs grouped by similarity. Audio Dedupe can automatically select files with lower quality for deleting. There is a built-in audio player with continuous playback that can be used in order to quickly review the quality of the duplicate songs.

The main benefits of using this tool are:

  • Organize audio collections
  • Remove annoying duplicate files from your music library
  • Save valuable disk space by removing duplicates
  • Find similar songs and re mixes and group them together

Having duplicate audio files on mp3 players, iTunes, iPod, iPhone or iPad is not only annoying, but wastes valuable storage. While it may be easy to clean up few hundred files most people have huge collections and identifying and cleaning duplicates turns out not to be so easy. Audio Dedupe is an innovative tool that can recognize duplicate songs even if they are stored in different file formats. This is something that a standard duplicate file finder can not achieve. This is because if the same song is stored in different audio formats the file data is completely different even if it contains the same audio. Unlike the common duplicate file finders Audio Dedupe decodes the audio data and performs real audio analysis in order to identify similar and duplicate music inside an audio collection. There is a free demo available for download at www.mindgems.com, which you can use in order to evaluate the tool.


Audio Dedupe
supports the following audio file formats:

  • AAC Files (*.aac; *.mp4, *.m4a) – iTunes, iPod, iPhone Audio Files including Apple Lossles audio
  • AC3 Files (*.ac3)
  • Audio IFF Files (*.aif; *.aiff)
  • FLAC Files (*.flac)
  • MPEG Audio Files (*.mp3;*.mp2;*.mp1;*.mpa)

Duplicate MP3 Finder

Duplicate MP3 Finder

Audio Dedup 1.8.0.1 is released packed with new features.

The option to automatically log-off, shutdown, hibernate or stand-by the system after scan is finished will let you leave large scans overnight. After Audio Dedupe completes its work the project will be autosaved in <My Documents>\AudioDedupe_AutoSave.adpf and you can check the results on the next morning.

A grid popup menu item Properties is added and will show windows explorer file properties window.

We have added new Auto Check option to mark “Files with newer file dates”. This may be useful if you are editing your files and you would like to keep the most recent version that you have on your system.

A new option “Show user checked files in bold color” will let you easier distinguish the files that you have checked manually. If you are reviewing all the groups in the list manually it is handy also to track your progress.

One of the handy new features is the enhanced browse for folder dialog. You can now add multiple folders simultaneously. Just mark the folders that you would like to be scanned by ticking the check box near the folder name and click the OK button.

Audio Dedupe Duplicate MP3 Finder 1.2.0.1 is released. Audio Dedupe besides finding duplicate mp3 files now supports also – AAC, MP4, FLAC, AC3, WavPack (WV), Musepack (MPC) and Windows Media Audio (WMA) file formats. It also adds support for FLAC, WMA and MP4 tags. AIF is now recognized AIFF extension. You can now quickly rename files using F2 or Rename popup menu (only in registered version).

In addition to all the new format and fixes we have provided a new Audio Dedupe Corportate version that supports command line options and can output the results in a file.

Command-Line Parameters Usage: (Available only in Corporate Version)

AudioDedupe.exe -src_list <srclistfilename> -target_list <targetfilename> -log <logfilename> -s <similarity> -db <dbfilename> [-cachenames]

-src_list <srclistfilename> – specifies a plain text file which contains file names that you want to compare against <targetfilename> files
-target_list <targetfilename> – specifies a plain text file which contains file names that you want to compare against <srclistfilename> files

Note: If you omit -target_list parameter only -src_list files will be scanned

-log <logfilename> – specifies full path file name where the log from the comparison will be saved, e.g. c:\log.txt
-s <similarity> – specifies a similarity in percents. Example: -s 70
-db <dbfilename> – specifies the cache file name to be used or created.

-cachenames – if this option is specified, the program will store file names in cache instead of files checksum

Note: Cache files store audio files information gathered during the preprocessing pass (1st pass) of the scanning process. So if you often scan the same files, using cache file speeds up considerably the preprocessing pass.
You don’t need to create the cache file. Just specify it as a parameter and the program will create it. Or if the cache file from previous scan exists the program will use it. The cache files extension is ADCF (Audio Dedupe Cache File).

Example: AudioDedupe.exe -src_list “c:\src.txt” -target_list “c:\target.txt” -log “c:\log.txt” -s 70 -db “c:\db.adcf”

This will find all audio files with similarity >= 70% and save their file names and similarity in c:\log.txt file

Note: If some of the parameters contain spaces, you must enclose them in double quotes. Example: -src_list “c:\program files\files.txt”

Sample src.txt and target.txt file contents:

C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (3).mp3
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (3).mpc
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (4).mp3
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (4).ogg
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (5).mp3
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (6).mp3
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (7).mp3

Sample log.txt file contents:

* DUPLICATES OF * : C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (3).mp3
*** DUPLICATE 1 (SIMILARITY 98) *** : C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (3).mpc
* DUPLICATES OF * : C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (4).mp3
*** DUPLICATE 1 (SIMILARITY 95) *** : C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (4).ogg

Audio Dedupe – Duplicate Mp3 Finder Released

MindGems Inc. is proud to present Audio Dedupe – duplicate audio finder.
A perfect fit for our innovative software collection.

What is so special about Audio Dedupe?

Audio Dedupe uses an innovative audio analysis technology that actually LISTENS to your audio files and can recognize two files that contain the same song even if they are sorted in different file formats. Audio Dedupe does not require ID3 tags to be present in order to find duplicate mp3 files.

Why do you need Audio Dedupe?

If you have a vast audio collection it is difficult to find duplicate files. Audio Dedupe will not only find the duplicates, but will also mark the ones with lower quality for deletion. An internal audio playback is also provided. You can easily compare the two (or more) duplicate songs as Audio Dedupe has a smart feature and can play the songs from the same position while you are switching between files. Having in mind that media files are usually quite large, you can easily guess that Audio Dedupe can free up a lot of disk space by removing useless duplicates. Even if you have a lot of storage space the ever growing size of media files usually eats it up pretty quickly. You can free up gigabytes of storage in just few minutes.

Audio Dedupe Internal Audio Playback

Why shall I choose Audio Dedupe?

Fast, Precise and Easy are the words that describe Audio Dedupe perfectly. Audio Dedupe can analyse thousands of audio files in just few minutes. You can easily set the similarity detection level in order to broaden or narrow the results. All duplicates are listed and grouped for easy preview. The auto-mark will let you easily select older files or files with lower quality for deletion. There are also options to select files with smaller file size, ignore certain file types from being marked, ignore files containing certain keywords in the title, ignore certain folders from being marked etc. Once you have reviewed the results you can delete the files, move them to the Recycle Bin or move them to a certain folder in order to create a backup.
