It allows for easily editing audio metadata (tags) such as a song's artist, title, album, artwork, etc… • Supported Formats: - Audio files: .mp3 .mp4 .m4a .flac .ogg .oga .opus .speex .wav .aiff - Metadata: ID3v1, ID3v2.3/v2.4, APE, MP4, Vorbis, INFO Tags. • Features: - Straightforward, native user interface that follows macOS' Standards. - Batch Editing: Apply changes to a selection of files at once. - Preview audio and artworks without leaving Meta, using Quick Look. - Perform string transformations. - Find and replace text, or regular expressions. - Rename files, extract tags from file names, or even create directories by specifying metadata patterns. - Easily set or export album artworks using drag & drop. - Adjust artworks (scale, crop, compress) either on demand, or automatically upon adding new artwork, to keep your audio files size to a minimum. …and there's more: - Generate track number sequences: just choose an index and increment, and Meta will do the rest. - Batch cut/copy/paste metadata: very useful in-app, and to exchange data with Numbers or Excel spreadsheets as CSV. - Take advantage of handy file operations, in-app (move, delete, open with, reveal in finder, etc…) - Utility popovers that help you edit long text (lyrics, comments), BPM (tap tempo), or dates so you don’t have to worry about what format to use. • iTunes Friendly: Add selected tracks to iTunes, or refresh their metadata once edited in Meta. Optionally get autocomplete suggestions from iTunes’s database. • Meta’s Interface can be Customised: View Configurations allow you to define lists of tags you want to view/edit. You can then quickly switch between configurations, depending on your needs (for example: common, advanced, sorting, podcast-related, etc…) • Fast, Clean, and Reliable: Edits are instantaneous. Any changes can easily be undone. And most of all, Meta is powered by Taglib: a well-tested, open-source tagging engine. — We’re dedicated to bringing you frequent free feature updates.

What's New in Version 1.6.3: • Fixed an issue when using 'Strip Tags' on MP4 Files. Previously in 1.6.2: Enhancements: • Updated Taglib to v1.11.1 • When editing text, calling the command-backspace key command now clears the line, instead of wrongly calling “Move to Trash”. • When calling “Add to iTunes”, unsupported file formats are now skipped, and Meta reports in case of success or failure. • Added the ability to batch-copy filenames without their extensions, by pressing the option key when clicking the “copy” menu item. Fixes: • Fixed unusual slowness when opening FLAC files. • Fixed text-finder crashing on macOS Sierra. • Fixed text-finder issues on previous system versions (see end note). • Fixed handling of MP4 Metadata track/disc frames. • Fixed various error-resolving issues when moving files to an existing location, see below: - “Replace” operations fail when moving files across volumes. - “Keep Both” incorrectly points to the file with the orignal name, and not the new unique location. - “Skip” is skipping all forthcoming errors, instead of skipping only the current-one. Note: In order to find a way around a system-level issue, the incremental search feature will be disabled if you are running a version of macOS before 10.12 (Sierra). Find & replace will still work, but might be slower when performed on very large data sets, and will also display a poorer user experience. Upgrading to the latest OS will bring back the feature’s advertised full potential.
