Meta 1.8.6


Meta helps you manage your ever-growing digital music collection.

With Meta you can easily edit information such as a song’s artist, title, album, album cover, etc. It supports editing of most audio formats such as mp3, mp4, m4a, flac, ogg, oga, spx, wav, aiff, and a variety of metadata formats including ID3v1, ID3v2.3, ID3v2.4, iTunes MP4, Vorbis Comments and APE Tags.

  • A polished, intuitive user interface that adopts OS X’s standards
  • Write metadata to multiple files at once (Batch Tag Editing)
  • Remove all metadata from files (Strip Tags)
  • Change typecase (capitalise, upper/lowercase, titlecase), strip underscores
  • Rename files based on their metadata or instead, convert filenames to metadata
  • Find & Replace characters, words or strings in metadata, with support for regular expressions (patterns)
  • Add selected tracks to iTunes, or refresh their metadata using a simple keyboard shortcut
  • Automatically generate track numbers
  • Benefit from built in file management operations (Move, Delete, Reveal in Finder)
  • Interface is compatible with Retina displays

Album covers can easily be set or exported via drag & drop, and it is possible to configure Meta so that it scales, crops, and compresses images each time a new image is set, so as to keep your audio files’ size to a minimum.
