Would you like to associate track and artist names with your anonymous songs?

Here's how it works
- Get the free beaTunes trial version for Windows or Mac and install it on your computer
- Start beaTunes
- Instead, only select the songs that have no meaningful title or artist information associated with them
- Go to File -> Analyze Songs
- beaTunes will now show you the analysis options dialog:
- Check the Import metadata from online resources checkbox
- Make sure you select an appropriate import option. The replace option will overwrite existing data. Be sure to understand what it does.
- Click on the analyze button to start the process
- The songs are now analyzed in the background
- To track progress, click on the Task Queue item in the left part of the main window:
- When the analysis is running, the Pause Analysis button is enabled allowing you to pause analysis at any time
- Note, that when you shut down beaTunes and restart it, it resumes analysis where you stopped it
- Once an ID is associated with a song, the Get Info dialog will take advantage of it and offer helpful correction hints:
