With Apple's special media event date of September 9th looming, rumors of iTunes 8 are in the air.

Kevin Rose claims iTunes 8 will be a "big update." New features are rumored to center around two things: music recommendation and subscriptions.

Will "genius playlists" replace smart playlists? Will iTunes compete with Pandora? Stay tuned.. only 6 days to go.

 Use iTunes search pane to search ratings

iTunes Tips
redline
 
Just when I thought I knew everything about iTunes, I caught this cool hint on MacOSXhints-

The iTunes search allows search by star ratings. Simply add *'s to your search with or without other keywords. The more astericks you add, the higher the rating.

This makes it possible to find songs by the Beatles with three stars without having to resort to a Smart Playlist. Very cool!

 Fixing up your tags

iTunes Tips
redline
 
To get the most out of smart playlists, you really need to have complete tag information. Some of my favorite third-party tools are:

iEatBrainz - This free program examines songs in your library and then creates an auditory fingerprint of the sound of each song to match it with the correct information maintained in the MusicBrainz Database.

Jaikoz - This commercial software (£15 GDP or about $30 US), also uses MusicBrainz as well as Acoustic Ids provided by MusicIP.

Remember that no identification system is 100% accurate so make sure to double check the results no matter which tool you use.
