TuneSpan for iTunes

12 September 2018

Effortless iTunes media library management.

Overview

TuneSpan allows you to browse and span the media in your iTunes Library. To span your media means to distribute the files in your iTunes Library across multiple drives.

What does TuneSpan do?
TuneSpan helps you easily move the media files (Music, Movies, etc.) in your iTunes Library to multiple drives, avoiding the pitfalls of moving files manually. TuneSpan lets you browse and keep track of media in your iTunes Library on all drives, whether they're connected or not, and makes it clear to you what is and isn't currently available to play in iTunes. TuneSpan also offers sophisticated filtering options that aren't available in iTunes.

What's new in TuneSpan for iTunes

Version 1.4.1:
Fixed:
  • Bug that would cause TuneSpan to stall if large folders or lots of folders were expanded in the Media Locations list
  • Bugs when displaying TV Show names and large episode numbers
  • Other minor bug fixes and improvements
  • Refresh Album Artwork" Tool for iTunes 12.4 and newer
  • Variety of interface bugs on macOS 10.13 High Sierra
Added:
  • Support for the next version of macOS
  • New Maximum File and Folder Name Length setting to Advanced Preferences
  • Support for Loved, Album Loved, Work, Movement Name, Movement Number, and Movement Count tags
Improved:
  • "Create Locations Playlists" Tool for iTunes
  • TuneSpan handles very large Spans and Restores. When Spanning and Restoring more than 5000 tracks, TuneSpan will automatically split it into separate batches to not stress the system too much at once. TuneSpan can automatically continue onto the next batch if the previous one was successful
  • TuneSpan handles Restores when the original location no longer exists. TuneSpan will now offer to restore to the current iTunes Media folder instead
  • First run experience. New users will now be prompted to opt-in to Analytics on the second run instead of the first
  • Work, Movement Name, and Year as Dynamic Tokens in the Custom Folder Organization Preferences
  • Removed "iTunes U" and changed "Books" to "Audiobooks" throughout TuneSpan. If you're using an older version of iTunes that still has iTunes U, they will be shown as Podcasts in TuneSpan
  • Replaced interface icons with icons from Primaries by Parakeet
  • Dropped support for older than OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan

This app is just what I needed. With a large music, podcast, movie, and tv show library it's difficult to fit it all on my mac. With TuneSpan I am able to keep everything neat and tidy on different folders on my NAS + external drive. This solution works great with my AppleTV, and it's a perfect solution to a problem that keeps getting bigger.

This is an indispensable utility for anyone with a large music and/or video library. Please, pretty please, update it to work with Catalina.

I got this a while back for $1.99 but haven't used it yet. Am considering new Mac w/ smaller internal SSD so I need to migrate media to external drive. I see that this app hasn't been updated since Oct '15, and on Twitter dev admits he hasn't spent much time on app, had to create Applescript to deal with an album art bug in the app! So I'm a little wary of trusting the app now. Any idea how it compares to PowerTunes (last updated Oct '16)

Worth every cent!

I've been using this app regularly now for over a year & just wanted to comment on it.
I am very happy with this little gem as it does everything I need to keep my external drives for my media server organized & tracked. The UI is easy to use and makes the whole process work seamlessly on my Mac Pro running 4 internal drives.

I also like the way it tracks file name or other metadata issues within iTunes's program & offers to fix these errors before spanning them. It's a wonderful little app that does one thing & it does it very well indeed!

I wish more apps were like TuneSpan. It's easy to use, so easy that I could figure everything out without reading any of the documentation. It works fast and reliably. There is plenty of feedback about what it's doing, so I'm never left wondering what happened. And it looks good! I use TuneSpan to move my music files into my Dropbox (for backup purposes, seeing as I have 1 TB of storage now). I've also set up an automatic span so all I have to do is launch TuneSpan, and it does its thing without any intervention on my part. In the past, I've used TuneSpan to move large video files to an external drive when I ran out of space on my internal drive. I like that I can see where all my files are, and can easily restore everything back to its original location if need be (such as when I got a larger internal drive). Not everyone needs TuneSpan, but if you want to move your iTunes files around, it's the app to get.

In one word: Excellent ! This is the way software should be ! The app relocated my complete music library (almost 450 gigs of music) to an external harddisk without a single problem. It just works, cleans up after and the developer is very responsive ! Worth every penny !

Great app that does what it says easily and transparently. Just gave me a seamless way to offload movies to an external disk that I don't need to have sucking up all my precious disk space. Love it!

To the developer -- Does v 1.0.3 work with the new iTunes that just was released (which shows in Software Update as iTunes v 10.7)? I love this wonderful program, it is awesome. I hope v 1.0.3 works with the new iTunes 10.7, since I just installed it already without thinking to ask this first. Guess I'll find out when I finish typing this posting, and if v 1.0.3 I'm hoping the developer will come out with an update fix if needed real soon, since this seems to be a well-supported, labor of love application.

Well done Tunespan developer! This app worked flawlessly when I needed to move a very large iTunes library to an external drive. Yes I know that I could have read up on the multi-step procedures and done this migration manually, but it was definitely worth the $14.99 to have it go correctly the first time while I was out enjoying the holiday weekend with my family. The process took almost 9 hours and iTunes booted up and acted like normal the first time I tried it with the new library location. Until Apple makes iTunes housekeeping procedures more intuitive, I'll with specialized apps like Tunespan.

Hey! This one cool iTunes manager! Great UI with some nice twists. Certainly a app to watch for. The question of the day: will it be free on v1 release?

I've tried practically all the library managers for iTunes out there, but this one is unique. It doesn't do anything you couldn't do yourself. However the fact that you simply select a folder, select files you would like to move to it and click "Span..." to execute your choices saves a great deal of time. As you probably know iTunes is very inflexible as far as being able to split your media collection and put them in more than one huge directory or even move them from one drive to another without breaking all the links. iTunes is also not smart enough to relink files from the same album after you've located the first one. TuneSpan saves you from this grief and trouble. I wish this application existed years ago, as it would have saved me tens of man hours reorganizing my collection. Add to that, TuneSpan is donation-ware and you've got something truly worthy of your donation. You have nothing to lose, just read the manual to understand what it does before you click "Sapn..." the first time. (But there is a handy undo ability too.) There is room for improvement though, thus the 4 stars. I sent an email to the developer suggesting features that i'd would like to see this past weekend, but have yet to get a reply. A few are very simple and one is very complicated and might be out of scope of the goal of this program. Considering that this app isn't even at 1.0 status, I think it has a lot of great potential to really allow power users to control their media and organize it they way they want it to.
