I have folders of MP3s of varying bitrates and even though some claim to be 320kbps, it is obvious some of them have been upscaled from 128 or 160.

I would be great if this app had the ability to read an entire folder of audio files, check it's 'real' kbps output, and then move into a relevant folder.

For example;

0-128kpbs
128-160kbps
160-192kbps
192-256kbps
256-320kbps
320kbps+

In a somewhat repsonse to my own post, I just came across this app.

Strive for Quality

Along side with eliminating musical doubles, Similarity also provides the advanced quality control function. Really, who wants a collection full of low-bitrate music, badly remastered compositions and songs full of noises?

Similarity - Analysis

Similarity analyzes files and calculates a quality score basing on various technical parameters of that record, such as: bitrate, frequency, amplitude cut value, amplitude average value, amplitude maximum and many others. The program automatically detects all common problems with audio files and assigns a corresponding quality mark to each file. A quick sort – and you’ve got files with the highest quality at the top and files you can delete without doubts at the bottom.

Check out mediainfo, it can dump the samplerate, bitrate, etc

Thanks a lot for pointing out this application. I have the same need - analyse a huge collection of mp3s and get rid of the low quality files. However, I found out Similarity does a very job at spectogram analysis. Its often very much off the point...
How is your experience with Similarity?

Looking exactly for the same thing. Did you happen to find an easy way to batch detect upscaled 320kbps files with any app?
