    I loaded 11.0.2 hoping the same but it was a forlorn hope - still as c**p as ever

  • Neorich Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    So far as I'm concerned, Apple can go and take a running jump with this one.


    I'm fed up with their constant reminders, which I've asked them to stop, regarding any version of 11.


    I'm so pleased I was able to get back to 10.7 and re-install my beloved D.J.


    In future, as each "update," appears, I've learned to check the comments about it on the web and unless and until the D.J. function is brought back then I'll be sticking with 10.7 regardless of any hype trumpeted.


    You'd've thought, with all the hoo-ha on here and elsewhere on the web, plus the countless "individual," messages to which they "can't reply," that someone, somewhere would've gotten the message by now?

    Yes, Neorich, you have it right.  If a few thousand of us are making the effort to complain, thats a good statistcal indicator that there are millions who are missing the simplicity and functionality of DJ.  I'm back on 10.7 also, and I'm not changing.  I've invested a lot into this library I have, and DJ is the best way for me to enjoy it.

    I found a way to bring back my lovely iTunes 9:

    1. You have to move away the new iTunes 11

         Open a terminal and type in: sudo mv /Applications/

    2. Open this link to get the old iTunes version: to download the last usable version of iTunes

    3. remove the iTunes library files (only all xml staff) from your Music folder (all content keep unchanged)

    4. start iTunes and add the folder iTunes Music to your library, that cause a complete rescan you get your library updated.

    iTunes does not use the .xml stuff. It is created only for other apps to access the iTunes library.

    I suggest you don't do this as it doesn't update your library. it simply creates a new library. You lose a bunch of info.

    Do this...

    1. Quit iTunes.
    2. Delete the iTunes library.itl file in the iTunes folder.
    3. Copy the most recent iTunes library file from /iTunes/Previous iTunes libraries/ folder to /iTunes/ and rename it iTunes library.itl.
    4. Launch iTunes.

    This returns the library exactly as it was before updating.

    If you are like me, you were annoyed when iTunes 11 removed the DJ component of the software.  "Up Next" was a disappointing replacement. So I downgraded from 11 to 10.7. I followed these instructions exactly and have no issues. Do it and you'll be happier for it. Then maybe Apple will come to their senses and bring back DJ. Doubtful because Jobs is no longer at the helm but I have hope.

    Suppose you saved up your pennies (and dollars) and eventually bought yourself a brand new BMW 5 Series sedan (read: new MacBook Pro Retina).


    And suppose you took it to the dealer according to schedule a few months later for the manufacturer’s recommended preventative maintenance (PM).


    And suppose as part of the PM, the dealer installed the manufacturer’s latest software/firmware updates for your vehicle (read: iTunes 11) with the following results:


    (1) There is no longer a visible image displayed in any of the car’s rear view mirrors (read: no Cover Flow and no Album Artwork panel in the iTunes sidebar) – because, after all, with a little extra effort it is possible to see what you need to see and drive where you need to drive without the benefit of rear view mirrors.


    (2) Three of the car’s four doors are now permanently locked (read: you can no longer open multiple playlists in separate iTunes windows), so you can only enter and exit the vehicle through the driver’s-side front door – because, geesh, on any given day no more than 10 percent of 5 Series owners (read: iTunes users) use anything other than the driver’s-side front door (read: the main iTunes window) anyway.


    (3) The vehicle’s cruise control system (read: iTunes DJ) has been totally disabled – because, when all is said and done, there is a perfectly good accelerator pedal and a perfectly good brake pedal (read: the Up Next feature of iTunes 11) that can easily be used to manually control the speed of your vehicle.


    So what would be your reaction to, and opinion of, such a company, its product strategy and its customer focus? 


    Well, here’s thanks to you, Apple, for iTunes 11. It’s just great to have invested $3,000 in a new MacBook Pro Retina only to have the functionality of my most heavily used app reduced to what I could do with a $700 iPad.

  • bkize Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Brilliant analogies. I couldn't agree more. So epically disappointed with iTunes.

  • Hanks132 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I, too am totally dissatisfied with the removal of my Cruise Control ( Read DJ ) and want it back.  I have posted a comment in the feedback but doubt if it will do any good.  I guess I'll quit iTunes when my account is zero balance and try to find a replacement; Windows media (yuk), Amazon(?) any suggestions? 


    I know I have decided NOT to get an iPad - almost got one yesterday.  Now I'll be looking hard at Kindle.  Too bad, I kinda like the apps in my old Touch!  Oh well, maybe I can get a couple of bucks off Craig's List.


    An article in my local paper says that Apple is sitting on a LOT of cash.  Perhaps they think they don't need us any more?  They are ignoring us well enough.

  • Editor B Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I am adding my voice to the chorus of disappointment over the late, lamented iTunes DJ.


    I play almost all my music in an automated fashion. I have a bunch of smart playlists, and I have applescripts which change the source of iTunes DJ at certain times of day. I play music from iTunes (through my whole house) all day long, with an everr-changing palette of "programs."


    I don't know of any way to do this with Up Next.

  • celine dion Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    +1.  I've struggled to learn to work with iTunes 11 with no iTunes DJ, but I give up. I'm rolling back to the latest 10.X version, solely for iTunes DJ.


    I am fully in the Apple ecosystem, and almost only because of the previously excellent music playback options -- MacBook, iPhone, iPad, Airport Express for streaming/Airplay, iTunes Match.  I am a software developer by trade and am technically adept.  I continually find "Up Next" to be laughable as a replacement for iTunes DJ.  I guess I didn't know it until I went away, but iTunes DJ was *the* reason I went "all in" with Apple & music.  I won't move away from iTunes 10.X until there's feature parity with iTunes DJ in iTunes 11.  If my iTunes Match will quit working, fine. I'll cancel my subscription.  And if Apple desides to nerf iTunes 10.X with podcasts etc, I'll be moving off of the Apple ecosystem.  And I won't be back.

    To get around the lack of DJ in iTunes 11, go to 'songs' and click on the shuffle symbol in the box at the top that shows the song playing next to the time left the song has to play.
