Yate 5.0.2

Yate was developed for people who want complete control over their tagging experience. Supports audio in AIFF, APE, DFF, DSF, FLAC, OGG OPUS, OGG VORBIS, M4A, M4B, MP3, MP2, MP4, STEM.MP4, WAV and WV 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, MusicBrainz and TMDb. 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

Version 5.0.2:

  • The Discogs and MusicBrainz preferences sections are now divided into a number of tabs to hopefully make the settings more legible.
  • Both of these sections have a new Preferred country codes for filtering setting on the Advanced tab. Due to the nature of the downloaded metadata, the settings have somewhat different formatting requirements. The online help has additional information.
Discogs and MusicBrainz Wizards
  • The Country filter control on the search results panel can now access the new Preferred country codes for filtering settings.
  • You filter by the countries in the new setting by selecting Preferences from the Country filter control. If the setting is empty, Preferences is equivalent to All Countries. Note that if the new setting is not empty, Preferences will be pre-selected after each search.
Processing Audio File Health Check Logs
  • Previously you processed an Audio File Health Check log by starting Batch Processing, selecting the repair action and by dragging over the log file.
  • The Actions menu has a new convenience item named Process Audio File Health Check Log. This item preselects the appropriate action and chooses the log file location based on the settings in Audio File Health Check (or the defaults).
Audiobook Chapter Renaming
  • Audiobook chapter names can now be edited (in MPEG-4 files). Select one or more files containing chapters and do an Edit>Chapter Editor.
View Menu
  • You can now Show Stem Metadata from the View menu. The Stem metadata for all selected files will be displayed in the Log Viewer.
  • The File>Log menu items have been moved to the View menu.
  • The main window's Log context menu item has been renamed View.
Action Statements
  • When an action is exported it is a smart export. All directly referenced Yate components are automatically included in the exported file. However, many Yate components such as actions, rename templates, etc. can be indirectly referenced. These indirectly referenced components are not automatically included when an action is exported. There is a new statement called Include which can be used to manually specify that various component types are to be included when an action is exported.
  • There is a new action statement called Chapters which provides a programmatic interface to the new Chapter Editor functionality.
  • There is a new action statement called Tooltip. This statement replaces using a Comment statement to specify a tooltip for a custom editing panel action button. The statement's content will also be used for an action button on the main window's toolbar. The statement's content can also be used when displaying a description for an action in the Action Manager. All Comment statements which started with tooltip: will automatically be replaced with Tooltip statements.
  • The Extract Preference Set statement can now produce a list of all Action Runtime Settings.
  • The Extract Preference Set statement can save all Action Runtime Settings with a supplied prefix to named variables.
  • The Extract Preference Set statement now supports escape sequences in the template field. This means that when extracting a named Exception or Replacement set you an choose to do so indirectly.
Custom Panels
  • The Produced Notice field can now be resized vertically on Custom Editing Panels.
Mac OS 10.9
  • Since the last two queries about 10.9 have been issued we have not received even a single request to maintain support. This will be the last release which supports Mac OS 10.9.
Bug Fixes
  • A while ago the ability to place an action on a database's context menu was introduced. While this worked from the Action Manager it was not enabled when saving a new action or a modified action in an Action Editor window.
  • When a File List filter, a Discogs Import Set or a MusicBrainz Import set was imported, the associated list of items was not sorted.
  • The Preferences - General - Notepad location field and Chooser button were disabled based on incorrect criteria.
  • You could not create shortcuts to the View menu items.
  • When the Action Manager extracts a description for an action, disabled statements will now be ignored.
  • The Multi Field Editor table's column headers were not showing.
  • The Custom Panel editor was sometimes enabling vertical resizing when a control only occupied a single line.
  • The escape sequence to extract the version of the TV application (\?tv) was not working.
