Hey guys, I recently made the dive and purchased SongKong. I've since finished my first scan which took a little over 5 hours to complete matching nearly 28k songs out of 33k.

I am trying to get my iTunes library as accurate as possible to match as much music as possible to minimize unmatched songs that will have to be subsequently uploaded, whilst attempting to keep iTunes compliant file name structure.

My questions are:

1. Is there a settings template for the best (most accurate) for SongKong for iTunes/iTunes Match compatibility/compliance?

2. What type of filename and folder structure does iTunes use and should I stick with that structure?

2. Is it wise to rename the filename/folder structure, and if so what is the best filename/folder structure to use?

3. I currently have both "Keep iTunes organized" and copy files to iTunes when adding to library" unchecked as I've read it isn't compatible with SongKong or Jaikoz. If you change the filename/folder structure will it undo/revert all the changes made if you check these boxes and consolidate/reorganize the library via iTunes>file>library>organize library.

4. My end goal if possible is accurately updating/modifying all my meta data, and then re-checking the "keep iTunes organized" and copy files to iTunes when adding to library" to prevent future discrepancies. Then, starting the iTunes Match process, and then updating it to Apple Music.

5. Last but not least, I heard that Apple music could reverse everything that has been done, and thoughts and/or articles to point me toward?

Alot of questions there but they all seem to boil down to

1. how should I organize my folder structure


2. what is best for Itunes match.

Now you have to decide whether you want to define your own folder structure or whether you are happy with iTyes controlling it. If you want iTunes to control it that is okay just don't try to rename the files and folders within SongKong/Jaikoz. Secondly do you want iTunes to copy folder to library, personally I cannot see the point of this as it means you have two copies of every file.

Regarding iTunesMatch that is an Itunes/ITunes match question and would be better addressed on an iTunes forum as we havent yet looked at iTunes match. I think your comment relates to iTunes 12.2 but once again we havent looked at that, so sorry cannot help you there.
