Hello, I have over 77 thousand songs in my iTunes collection, i analysis all my songs which took over 1 week to do. I have lots of old radio shows from the 40s and 50s, comedy albums, things like that, is there a way to delete info on some of those tracks.
Thanks
Frank

    Hey Frank,

    I'm not sure I understand what you want to delete, why and how.
    Can you please explain?

    Thanks,

    Some of it you can delete. Assuming they all have the same genre, sort by genre and select a bunch of them (unfortunately you cannot select hundreds at a time) and then select Get Info from the context menu. Then go to the last tab of the pane (BPM & Co), select the checkboxes of the properties you want to delete and set them to appropriate values. I.e. for mood, just check the checkbox, but don't click into the color space, for BPM set the value 0.

    Color and timbre are currently not deletable.

    Another thought: You might want to move your radio shows to the media kind Podcast and your comedy shows to Audiobook. Just an idea, to have them out of the way and not in your main Music list anymore.

    You can change media kind though the Get Info pane as well (or just do this in iTunes and then synchronize beaTunes).

    For the moment—unfortunately not.
