LairWare Software has introduced Song Sergeant, a powerful and easy to use application dedicated to fixing problems in an iTunes Library, such as intelligently resolving duplicates, fixing inconsistently named artists and albums, and coping with missing and orphaned song files. Song Sergeant is uniquely capable of merging song files together instead of just crudely deleting extras, letting you keep the best song information and best audio quality even if they're from different song files.

"We've noticed how most iTunes users (and iPod owners) have the same band, album, or song listed multiple times in their libraries, because of duplicate songs files or inconsistently named artists and albums," said Leon McNeill, LairWare's CEO. "These problems and others can be difficult to find and annoying to fix manually, so we came up with a solution to intelligently fix potentially thousands of issues in one's music library with minimal effort."

Among Song Sergeant's unique features, it will choose the best name from inconsistent artists and album titles, will carefully replace instances of unkept songs in playlists with the ones that are kept, preserves "Last Played" dates, and merges play counts. Sensible preset settings which will please most users, but power users can precisely control what is considered a duplicate and what song information and audio data to prefer, either by changing Song Sergeant's rules or by manually selecting what they want to keep. In addition, users can easily preview songs and browse through related track information and artwork in order to ensure that they're keeping exactly what they want in their libraries.

Pricing and Availability:
Available today, Song Sergeant 1.0 is $20 (USD) and includes free updates to all future 1.x versions.
