As a developer and founder of Bolide Software
I want to announce one of our programs here. I am talking about Audio Comparer - MP3 duplicate finder
Yet another duplicate finder? Not exactly. The main difference of our program from a dozen of the similar ones is those fact that our program actually "listens" to the music files of different formats (MP3, MP2, MP1, WMA, AIF, WAV, WavPack, FLAC, APE, AAC, and OGG) and compares them by their actual sound data.
Here are some benefits of such approach:
- our program is able to detect similar songs, not only exact duplicates
- our program is able to detect duplicate songs stored in different formats (one in FLAC and one in MP3) or stored with different bitrate
- our program is able to detect duplicates if no ID3 tags are filled
The program is still in development, we are going to make a smarter auto marking feature, that can select given files from the found similar groups for further file operations. Your suggestions for the new features are welcome here!
