Consolidating album tracks in itunes
The default settings in i Tunes are to encode AAC files, which are supported by Serato software, however we recommend MP3 encoding.
To change the encoding settings, i Tunes Setting: Custom.
When enabled, this setting applies even when listening to playlists in shuffle order; a playlist containing two or more tracks from a given album will always be played together whenever the shuffle mode is set to “Album” mode.
Sadly, Apple decided to remove Album Shuffle mode in the sixth- and seventh-generation i Pod nano and all i OS devices.
As an example, I purchased the Beatles Abbey Road album from i Tunes.
Multiple songs on that album need to be played sequentially to sound correct.
ITunes, the media player developed by Apple, uses the Library to organize your audio tracks.
If you run a business, the Library enables you to organize training materials for your employees and presentation materials for your clients.
Note that if you’re using an i Pod classic or an older i Pod nano (prior to the 6th generation), you can actually set these devices to shuffle by album, which will ensure that your tracks are played in the proper sequence from each album before moving on to the next album.This will move all your i Tunes media files, from wherever they are stored on your computer, to the i Tunes folder.Thus, after you consolidated your i Tunes library, all your i Tunes contents will be stored in a single place.Submit your questions for consideration using our Ask i Lounge Submit Form.We reserve the right to edit questions for grammar, spelling, and length. I’ve seen questions and answers regarding how to join tracks with respect to CD downloads, however, I have not seen any responses regarding how to join tracks from i Tunes purchases.
