Automatically Tag Songs with TuneUp

SIMILAR TO: Shazzam, V-Cast Song ID
BUT FOR: iTunes

TuneUp

Who is "Unknown Artist"? What is "Track 01"? Find out with Clean.

There's nothing more annoying than a music library littered with "Unknown Artists", "Track 01s", or the same artist labeled multiple different ways, i.e. "Led Zepplin vs. LEDZEPLIN vs. zePPlin". Clean is the must-have tool for anyone with missing or inaccurate tags in their music collection. TuneUp will automagically fill in missing metadata like artist, song name, album, release year and genre.
