My journey with iTunes started from the 2nd gen iPod, at the time I ripped all my CD's, then as the years have progressed and I've built up collections in various genres the library has grown massively, especially downloading complete albums and not just singles and is now varied in not only genre but quality 128kbps to 320kbps which obviously affects size of the library. Then through my trance/electronic phases I've got anything upto 12 mixes of the same song from various albums. So my iTunes library is around 200GB of music which is far too monstrous to manage so I always end up syncing songs rated "4 or above" in iTunes to my iPhone/iPod - about 5GB made up of various genres. On the whole I feel myself reverting back to the same playlists or spending more time searching for songs than listening. Now do I continue to keep albums complete as they would be on a CD - is that the 'old fashioned' way? or sort through and weed out the filler songs? or Keep the library as it is and just re-do my playlists? or Start a fresh? Up to now I've held the belief a large library is a good thing as it gives choice, if anything it's becoming a hindrance with the use of SSD's in smaller capacities, device flash memory not increasing that much in the last few years i.e only upto 64GB options.
