How to easily remove duplicate tracks

Hello,

a friend of mine has hunderts of songs, which occures 2 or more times in the collection.

The cause is, that CDs ripped and imported into Traktor. <Artist A> <Title B> is on several CDs -> it is several times in Collection.

Is there a tool which deals with the Collection?

I know DupChecker Programs, which can do the Job based on a Filenames.

If no tool can support this task, it must be done by hand within Traktor.

Greetings

    for windows there exist programs like "Duplicate File Finder" which can search not only based on file-names

    "Right click collection and check consistency" does not to the trick, if this files exist - then they are consistent.


    I have also done it per hand ... sort the artists, sort the titles etc.and then choose the surplus and delete ...

    Thank you.

    I just found Lexicon

    https://www.lexicondj.com/

    What I read on the webseite, it seems to do the job. I will check it out the next days.

    I will not be the object of your affection:

    But with all the programs for DJs everywhere, they're just getting ripped off financially.

    $17 a month (Lexicindj) and all that. it's a crazy thing.

    And it's okay if you don't send me to "warmer climes."

    I found the best solution for finding duplicate files in Ashampoo Winoptimizer.

    And the NI people will be shouting about it: DO NOT use Optimizers.. It's very difficult

    Google Helium music manager or PerfectTUNES. Two programs that may fix your problem.
