- Copy and Paste favorite music into a new folder.
- Point iTunes at that new folder.
- Watch iTunes analyze that folder for a couple minutes.
- Turn on iTunes Match.
- Pay $25.
- Watch iTunes Match gather info, match the music, and upload the unmatched songs. (Takes a while… 3626 songs, started at 9:18am, the first two steps were done at 9:55, and now it’s uploading 1656 songs that it COULDNT MATCH, including a lot of japanese artists… bummer)
Alarmingly, many Luna Sea live tracks have been labelled DUPLICATE (nein! nein!) so that blows.
Next step, delete the new music folder and re-download everything (some of this stuff is already Alt.Preset.Standard-ish, but I want to see how my tags and album art fare).
