Our sponsor this week is Yate, the Mac audio tagging app for serious taggers. If you want an easy way to add more info to your music files than you can in iTunes, it’s an app you should be sure to check out.
Organizing and tagging your audio files can be very tedious and time consuming. Yate aims to make it much easier. It lets you import audio tagging info from MusicBrainz or Discogs, and can help you quickly add missing album art info. It lets you add more metadata to your songs than you ever could with iTunes or OS X’s File Info. Then, you can add these changes to all of your songs at once with Actions, saving you the time of manually updating each song in an album.
Best of all, Yate integrates with iTunes, and was recently updated to work with the latest iTunes updates, so it can automatically sync your song tags with your iTunes library. You can use it to tag all of your mp3, m4a, and FLAC files, and keep your library up to date at the same time. If you ever need to change or revert tags you’ve added, Yate can take care of that, too!
Go Get It!
If you’re ready to start getting serious about tagging your music files, be sure to download Yate and try it out. You can test it for free for 14 days, then purchase a license for $30 to keep using all of its features. And if you have any trouble getting it going, be sure to get in touch with the Yate team; they’re great at making sure their customers can get the most out of their app, as we found while writing our review.
I have a lot of music, as most of us do, and I need to keep my music organized. I download and import music from lots of different places, so my music files end up tagged with all sorts of different genres, artist and song titles are garbled, and they get all kinds of comments stuck on them. It can be a burden to clean all that up.
Yate, an audio file tagging app, can edit metadata and get all your music organized the way you want it. We’ll try editing a few files, see if Yate stands up, and find out whether it can really clean up the mess of your iTunes library. (more…)
