Super PlayListMaker is used to create Super Playlists for iTunes. What are Super Playlists? Super Playlists are folders containing playlists providing various enhanced views of your iTunes Music Library. These views make it much easier to find and/or play your songs or video.

Want to find everything by AC/DC, a specific album by Eminem, all of your Audio books, Classic Rock tracks, tracks played more than once or more than 100 times, tracks > 1 GB in size or < 1 MB, your 5 star tracks or all tracks from 1985 etc…

Want to play all of your Classic Rock tracks? Go to the By Genre folder and play the Classic Rock playlist.

Want to play all of your purchased tracks? Go the By Kind folder and play the Purchased AAC audio file playlist.

Want to play all of the tracks you gave 5 stars? Go to the By Rating folder and play the 5 stars playlist.

You can build any or all of the Super Playlists after your iTunes Music Library is analyzed for track information. What playlists are created in your Super Playlist folder depends on what is in your iTunes Music Library.   Super Playlists included are:

  1. By Artist – creates a folder containing a track playlist for each artist in your iTunes Music Library.
  2. By Album – creates a folder containing a track playlist for each artist’ album (e.g. Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon) in your iTunes Music Library. This Super Playlist always includes Artist – Album name so that artist albums are displayed next to each other.
