I'm very happy with Audirvana Plus. I started using it some weeks ago. However I cannot find a solution to this:Audirvana Plus opens a list of all my music stored on the disk and there I have to select what I want to listen in order to put it in for example a play list. Scrolling a large list is a bit frustrating - especially with a big collection. Most of music player interfaces you can type in a letter and immediately jump to all your CDs/tracks that begin with that letter. That saves a lot of scrolling.Have I missed something (to be able to make such a quick-jump)?
Cliff Face posted a topic in iTunes and Everything AppleI have iTunes library on 1TB external hard drive. The library is 14,000+ songs that are a combination of purchased and ripped from my CD collection. I thought having the library on an external hard drive meant moving to a new computer would be a breeze. I didn't even worry about it. My computer is an iMac over 5 years old. It has been updated to MacOS and has the latest version of iTunes 188.8.131.52. I got a new iMac with MacOS and iTunes 184.108.40.206. I attached the external hard drive to the new computer. I opened iTunes. Under Preferences -> Advanced I selected the location of my iTunes library. There are two problems: 1. Every song has a download icon. 2. A lot of ripped music isn't visible in the library even though I've confirmed it's still on the hard drive. As a science experiment, I clicked the download icon on a ripped track. (This is a song I did NOT purchase through iTunes.) This seemed to fix the problem but created a new copy of the m4a file named -1, thus consuming double the disk space. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Julian B posted a topic in iTunes and Everything AppleMy iTunes is configured in the way described in Kirk's article: http://www.macworld.com/article/2996002/streaming-media/how-to-set-up-an-itunes-library-on-a-network-attached-server.html My library file is on my mac, the media is on my NAS. My NAS died and I am no longer using it. Fortunately I had my media backed up and have restored it to a different external drive (not a was). How do I tell iTunes to look to that new external drive? If I follow the steps from Kirk's article again, I think it will try to copy from a source that no longer exists. I simply want to tell iTunes that the new location has all the files in the expected folder structure. Any help is appreciated.
iansen posted a topic in SoftwareApologies if this topic already has a thread. I haven't purchase any music from the Apple store for some time now. I have always had my default settings in iTunes as not connected to the store, and have always ensured iTunes Match and other such equivalents are switched off. This evening I went online to the Apple store to purchase an album (that I could not find elsewhere). Before I knew it: it appears that Apple has started to read my library and replaced my versions (ie higher than 256kpbs, either burnt from compact disc or purchased from other sites) with its on 256kpbs versions. I had to force quite iTunes, go off-line, restart ITunes, and attempt to switch off all communication between my version of iTunes and Apple online, and then re-establish an internet connection. A few searches online reveals that not only have my tracks been replaced with Apple's own 256kpbs versions, but apparently are now all with added DRM! Still not entirely sure which tracks have been replaced and which haven't... Anyone else had this experience? And does anyone know exactly how to ensure this doesn't happen again!?
