My name is Philip and I’ve been a fan of music for the longest time ever since I was a kid. I’m an avid listener and have always had a strong love for finding and discovering new music, which has led me to create this website as a place to share with you all my findings as well as provide you with some tips on how to improve your music library.
I’m not much of a writer so bear with me here! As you can tell, this blog is going to take on a more personal approach focusing around myself and my personal experiences as well as some valuable advice I can give you all.
I would like to share with you all my journey into becoming a more professional listener and improving my musical library. This will allow me to listen to more genres of music, discover new bands/artists that are out there in the world, and most importantly find the best quality music possible!
So if you’re interested in taking control of your own library or just want someone else’s opinion on current music trends then read on!
The state of your music library is something you probably don’t think about too often. You have a lot of music, but does it make you happy? If you could improve your music library, what would it look like?
If your music library is already in great shape, great! You can stop reading here. But if you feel like something is missing, or if you have some ideas for improvement but aren’t sure how to get started, this series of posts is for you.
I’ll walk through some of the things I’ve learned in my years managing a pretty large music collection. It’s important to note that there is no one right way to do this; I’m just going to tell you what has worked for me. Hopefully by the end you’ll feel confident starting (or continuing) your own journey toward a better music library!
With the current state of digital music the average music collection is in a very fragile state. To be specific, it is highly likely that your music library has duplicate tracks, which in turn, wastes space on your hard drive and makes it difficult to find your favorite songs. This also makes for a very messy library. Even if your iTunes/Music Library doesn’t have duplicates or missing album art or missing genre information, there are probably other things you would like to fix with your Library. You may want to add or correct song lyrics, find out what the tempo of a song is, or even find out what album a song is from.
Tremolo is a Python application that will attempt to fix these problems with your library. It detects duplicate tracks and gives you the option to delete them automatically or manually through an interactive dialogue. Tremolo will also allow you to search for missing album art and save it directly into the tag of each individual track. It can extract genre information from the file name and save this information into the tag as well. Tremolo will also look up track’s tempo (BPM), get a list of all the albums from an artist, get lyrics for each track and allow you to search for songs by tempo (BPM).
Tremolo helps you maintain a well organized music library by making it easy to tag your music. Tremolo automatically looks up and suggests tags for your music from several online sources. It also provides a variety of tools for bulk editing existing tags, as well as for generating new tags based on existing ones.
Tremolo provides a simple interface for managing your music library. We have a powerful set of tools for listening to and managing your music library. Use the web player, desktop app, or mobile app to listen on the go.

The Music Library is a place where you can add, edit and remove your music files. It also allows you to browse and search for music based on artists, albums, genres and instruments.
The Music Library contains all the files that are in your iTunes library, by default. You can also add additional folders to your Music Library.
When you add a new folder to your Music Library, it will automatically scan for new music files and add them to the library. This means that you don’t have to manually edit your library every time you download a new file.
The Music Library is the place where all your music will be stored and managed. You can access it through iTunes, or Windows Explorer depending on your operating system.
To get started find the “Music” folder on your computer. The default path for this folder is:
Windows XP – C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music
Windows Vista/7 – C:\Users\username\Music
Mac OS X – /Users/username/Music
Once you have found your music folder, we need to create a new directory inside of it called “iTunes”. This is where iTunes will store all of your music and playlists, as well as back-up copies of your iPhone applications.
Open up iTunes and go to the preferences menu by clicking on the “Edit” menu and selecting “Preferences”. We will be setting our library location in the next step.
Under the “Advanced” tab click on the “Change…” button to set the location of your library. Find the folder that you just created in step 2 (“iTunes”) and click OK to save it as your new library location.
