Removal of duplicate files using the rule-based program capability
It appends a suffix number, e.g. _2, _3 etc...

What does Bliss do if, when renaming files following the rules, two files end up with the same name?
Jake, if you have the time it would be interesting to know if the fpcalc tool (the same fingerprinter bliss uses) generates the same fingerprint for the tapes and the other recordings: https://acoustid.org/chromaprint . If you get the chance, run fpcalc from the command line giving the music file as an argument. Copy and paste the results and send to firstname.lastname@example.org ... if you don't get the time, don't worry ;)
It would be nice if Bliss could identify duplicates and let me decide what to do. My other half has songs from tape that sound awful as well as rips from CD of the same track. Or we have both ripped the CD and having two copies just confuses some players. I would like help finding all those low quality duplicates.
I found an application Duplicate Cleaner and its freeware: http://www.digitalvolcano.co.uk/content/duplicate-cleaner-206-version-check
Check it out!! Super Duper Cool
I remain to be convinced!
There should be an option to identify the duplicates and either delete then or create duplicate album folders.
audio fingerprinting could e.g. remove a duplicate song of lesser quality
