How do I remove duplicate MP3 files?

Duplicate MP3 Files Screenshot

Removing duplicate MP3 files from your music collection can become a complex task if it has hundreds or even thousands of audio files. It's threatening even to imagine the procedure of looking through all the folders, trying to find identical audio files, and sometimes having to listen to musical records whose names provide no information about the file at all. The whole process can take not even hours but several days and nights. This task would seem devastating and threatening even to a very patient person... but happily not for Audio Comparer!

download to remove duplicate MP3

This brainy software is surely capable of doing all that donkey work for you. The program's primary target is to find and remove duplicate MP3 files and sort files in a way that is suitable for you personally. From the program name, you may guess that the program's mechanism is based on the comparison process of audio files; it means, that Audio Comparer can easily find both exact duplicates and similar files, with a "similarity threshold" being specified. Let's see how in more detail.

Firstly, to remove duplicate MP3 files, "tell" the program where to look for them, i.e., specify the location of your music collection. Then, the program asks you to give a name to the "Audio group" for your collection (the unit Audio Comparer operates by), and the whole process starts. Basically speaking, that is all the work you have to do manually. The program will do all the rest.

So, after you've specified the location and given a name to your Audio group, the program starts listening to all audio files in your collection. The listening process is high-speed and takes only a second per file. By the way, if you like, you are welcome to listen to the music right from the program, as it has a built-in player. The audio comparison process is even faster, and you'll get the comparison results in seconds.

As soon as your audio group is formed, you're welcome to make a comparison within this group or with another group. When the MP3 files comparison is finished, Audio Comparer displays the results in the form of a tree. Each nested branch is actually an audio file with a similarity degree within the parent branch file. You may ask the program to recommend to you which one of the duplicate files should be deleted, judging by music quality, or if you'd rather rely on yourself, do this yourself. Having removed duplicate MP3 files, you can mark files and copy or move them all to another folder, whichever most convenient for you.

So, rely upon Audio Comparer and make your life easier - let it masterfully do all the "dirty" work for you quickly and effectively. Audio Comparer is a real "guru" at finding and removing duplicate MP3 files, as well as capable of "juggling" with MP3, WMA, APE, AAC, OGG and WavPack files like knives.
