Yate was developed for people who want complete control over their tagging experience. Supports audio in AIFF, DFF, DSF, FLAC, M4A, M4B, MP3, MP4, STEM.MP4 and WAV files. Supports video in M4V and MP4.
Yate has a long list of features; most importantly, an innovative scripting system called actions. Actions can be used to update all of an album's tags with a single operation. Yate also supports integration with AcouticBrainz, AcoustID, Beatport, Discogs, iTunes and MusicBrainz. All changes can be easily reverted and individual changes can be undone in any order. Whether you want to automatically or manually tag your files, Yate can do it all!
What's New in Version 3.14.1:
The Action Manager
・The Action Manager now supports the saving and restoring of the sort order.
・If you have a manually arranged display list, you can now save the sort order by the Save Current Sort Order context menu item.
・You can return to your saved sort by the Sort by Saved Sort Order context menu item.
Action Editor Windows
・New Action Usage context menu sub menu. Displays a list of all accessed file actions and all accessed or declared inline actions. Clicking on a menu item will open or show the associated action.
・All action statements which run an action have a picker button to display a list of action files. The picker control will now display all declared inline actions, when appropriate. The picker control has been added to the Repeat Forever statement.
・The Start action statement now has a picker control to display all referenced but not declared inline actions. As a convenience the menu will also display Batch Start and Batch End if not declared.
Full Screen Support
・Hopefully a better interaction with the Full Screen mechanism. (Yosemite or later). The main window, Action editors and Database viewers can be full screen and tiled. All other windows cannot.
・New General-Preferences setting called Allow document windows to become full screen. The setting can allow or disallow full screen support on Action Editor windows and Database Viewer windows.
・The more meaningful Cocoa Error messages introduced in v3.14 now display the error number as well as the descriptive text.
Resources Web Page
・The Sample Actions web page has been replaced with a Resources page which has a new Documents area.
Audio File Health Check
・The Repair Files from Audio File Health Check Log action has been updated and can be found on the Resources page accessible off the Help menu. When you import the action make sure that Overwrite is set.
・The newer action now removes invalid control characters and newline sequences from fields which do not support them. It also directly modifies the targeted files as opposed to importing and exporting metadata.
・While it is still recommended that you run the action by dragging the log file to the Batch Processor target, it will work if run directly from the UI.
Action Statement Changes
・The Indexed Artwork action statement now supports saving to a named variable and the function can now extract the size of the artwork data in bytes.
・The Trim functionality will now process User Defined Text Info and User Defined URL items, if the deep option is specified.
・The following action statements can be executed always or only if the action test state is true or false. Break, Cancel, Exit, Exit Grouped, Exit Repeat, Next File, Restart Batch Processor, Restart Repeat Forever, Stop, Stop Batch Processing.
・You can now set the button labels directly on an Ask statement.
・The Run Context Test statement has been renamed to Test Run Context.
・The Test Key State statement has been expanded to test if a key is pressed or not and given the ability to Set, And, Or the action test state. This way any explicit combination of modifier keys may be tested.
・The Re-Encode statement now has a function to remove RTF formatting. Useful if you've read an RTF file and you want the raw text.
・Yet again ... better escaping of special characters in the MusicBrainz Wizard's search fields.
・A Save statement executed stepwise from the UI while processing a Load and Run statement, saved to the current file selection as opposed to the track loaded by the statement.
・It was possible to lose changes in a focused artwork description field if the field lost focus by clicking on a toolbar icon or by executing a keyboard shortcut.
・The Cancel Batch button on the Dump Variables window was not cancelling.
・Fixed a vulnerability where the closing the Action Manager in full screen mode could cause the application to crash.
・The new Custom Panel Action Buttons, were not always refreshed properly.
