SuperSync, a iTunes library synchronization and management tool, has been updated to version 4.0. SuperSync allows users to view, merge, and synchronize iTunes libraries over local networks or over the Internet, among other features. Version 4.0 offers users a brand new interface that allows for easier navigation of multiple libraries, improved networking speeds, a duplicate inspector that lets users compare tracks that are or may be duplicates, an iTunes import feature for importing music from another library or from a backup, Smart Playlist export, and built-in Internet search. SuperSync 4.0 is a free upgrade for all current users while new licenses range from $29 for a two-license pack to $49 for a ten-license pack; it is available now for Mac OS X and Windows.

I am one of the developers of SuperSync. I can answer any questions about it. A trial is available for Mac and Windows. If you have any questions, I around to answer them. We’re very excited about this release.

Bought it to sync to big libraries with partly identical files. Works great with all the filter criterias you could set. I could easily identify what needs to be synced and what not.
I am very exited about the new duplicate inspector. It was always a problem when I changed the attributes of files (e.g. album name), which made it hard to sync with the other library and not generating duplicates with different names.

Bought the software; it’s ok.  I expected it to keep 2 or more libraries identical.  That does not happen in reality.  I copied the same library (through explorer) to 2 different computers, started itunes and super sync on both and got different results from super sync (since all of the files are identical, should I not have to sync?) Great effort and hopefully will do what I need someday.

Also, I lost 34 playlists.  Suggestion for next rev:  have an option to keep a master library and all others are copies, the “read-only” function is does not work correctly.

Hi L.T. Spongebob! =)

SuperSync can:

- keep your libraries synced (with the same tracks on different computers).  Example, Library 1 and Library 2 have the same tracks.

- import one library with another.  Example, Library 1 has its own tracks but then adds tracks from Library 2, Library 2 stays the same

- merge two libraries together. Example, Library 1 has X tracks, Library 2 has Y tracks, then Library 1 and 2 have X+Y tracks

Regardless what you want to do, SuperSync can show you both Libraries and their content.  At that point, you can use our ‘Get’, ‘Put’, and ‘Sync’ actions to move sync your content.

Regarding Playlists… playlist syncing is supported provided Library 1 and Library 2 are both iTunes based libraries. 

If you’re having problems sync’ing your libraries or with seeing your playlists, please contact our support team via the SuperSync website.  SuperSync.  We’re happy to help!

Hi. Can I use this to export smart playlists from iTunes and import them into some other music player like say songbird?
