I'm in the process of archiving/remixing band files from long ago, when I just started out. My tagging/naming skills were non existent, so Ive got a lot of duplicates. I've tried myriad "duplicate file finders" but none of them were up to par. Need an app with acoustic fingerprinting, or something that will give 100 % accuracy.
Searches by file length didn't work (lots of takes during recording with minor variations, nature of the beast) perfect tunes was useless. CCleaner useless. Myriad apps from this hydrogen audio thread, some good but none perfect. I'm asking here as I've tried everything else. I'm willing to try command line stuff, anything really. (I am a novice at cmd and powershell, but wiling to try anything). Thank y'all.
Edit: duplicate = *audio content/fingerprint identical (complete null in daw) so far every app I've tried has given a 100% similarity score to a whole lot of files that were not identical. Quite a few of the apps don't decode (from flac) or fail to isolate the tags/metadata from the actual audio content.
Edit: I'm on Windows 11 Pro. No price constraints.
