Ratings and Reviews
I’ve got 8382 Orphans and just as many Missing. But Song Sergeant chokes every time when Missing drops to 6579, just before which iTunes, which was open, mysteriously aborts. Song Sergeant asks if I’d like it to relaunch iTunes. I say “Yes” but then Song Sergeant hangs, dead, without iTunes re-opening. I open iTunes manually and wait. Alas, Song Sergeant is dead in its tracks. Same thing happens every time.
Works, but takes some tinkering…..
I want to start off by saying that this app helped me clear out thousands of duplicates, helped me rename songs, and helped me weed out missing songs and such. So, it did what I wanted it to, for the most part. The thing is that it isn't just like scan your library and walk away. You have to tweak some permissions for the program to work correctly or else it will keep telling you it can't delete the file because of said permission problems. I had to personally delete all of my playlist just to get the app to work correctly. All in all, after about two hours of trying to get everything up and running it finally did its job and my library was pretty much sqeeky clean. That is, after two hours, about ten scans, changing the persmissions, and deleting my playlist so the program could work as advertised. I would not reccommend buying this app unless you have both money and time to waste, and a really, really messy library.
Not working since the most recent iTunes update
When trying the use this app, iTunes will crash after approximately 250 duplicates have been processed, causing Song Sergeant to quit working as well. I wrote to the developer so said they are awayre of the problem and are developing a “work around.” For now, the app cannot process more than about 250 duplicates at a time.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
