Consolidating all music into itunes
The next time you play the item, i Tunes uses the equalizer preset that you assigned.
When you transfer content to your i Pad, i Pod, or i Phone, the standard i Tunes presets transfer with it; you can choose whether to use these assignments when playing the content on your i Pod or i Phone.
This chapter takes you to the outer limits of what is possible with i Tunes.
You discover how to play streaming radio stations, assign equalizer presets to songs and use those presets on your i Pad, i Pod, or i Phone, and even modify content in the library, including splitting a song track into multiple tracks (a useful technique if you’ve ripped an entire side of an album and want to divide the music into separate songs).
In fact, you can create one or more sublibraries of your main library on the same hard drive, sharing the same content folders and files so that you don’t waste space.
You can then automatically synchronize different i Pads, i Pods, and i Phones with each sublibrary.
Tip: If you want items that have assigned presets to play with those presets while the rest of the content plays without any equalizer adjustment, choose the Flat EQ preset in your i Pad, i Pod, or i Phone.
If you know in advance that you need to use specific presets for certain songs, assign standard presets to the songs in i Tunes before copying the songs to the i Pad, i Pod, or i Phone (but not custom presets, which don’t transfer to the i Pad, i Pod, or i Phone).
