Re-Apply Downsized Artwork v3.3

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This applet will examine the artwork of each selected track (or tracks in the selected playlist) and if greater than a user-set resolution (n x n pixels) will downscale the image to that resolution. Artwork already at the set resolution or smaller will not be affected. Includes options to pad image to make square, preserve extant track artworks, adjust preview proportionally and export displayed artwork to disk.

Also see Tracks Without Embedded Artwork.

Unplayed Albums to Playlist v1.3

For macOS 10.10 and later. This script will scan the library for music albums that have not been played (all an album's tracks have 0 plays) and copy them to a "_Unplayed_Albums" playlist. Considers each disc in a multi-disc set as an "album". Complete album, track and disc tags are a must for accurate results.

Also see Add or Subtract Play Count.

iCloud Music Library/Apple Music users should be aware of a potential bug.

Action shot:

Like so. The Last Played date of the selected tracks will be set to June 10, 2014 at 9:45AM and the Plays will be decreased by 3. The latter is an option that can be toggled on and off with the checkbox.

Needle Drop v6.0

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This applet plays each track in the selected iTunes playlist for a set time interval optionally starting at a set number of seconds into each track, beginning with the selected track. Handy for 'scoping playlists.

Needle Drop will work best on tracks that have local files. Un-cached tracks streamed from the cloud may upset timing while audio is being downloaded.

Sundry Info To Comments v4.2

For macOS 10.10 and later. Copies your single choice of filename, file path (location), file's parent folder path, file creation date (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS), current playlist, volume adjustment, start time or stop time (HH:MM.SS), artwork size (WxH), purchaser name or purchaser account ID to choice of Category, Comments, Description or Episode ID tag of each selected track. By putting data in one of these available tags it can be visible and sortable or used with Smart Playlist criteria.

I've kept the word "Comments" in the title of this script for legacy purposes, even though modern versions of it can write to other tags.

Action shot:

Set Video Kind of Selected v5.3

For macOS 10.10 and later. This script will change the video kind property of the selected tracks to your choice of "Home Video", "Movie", "Music Video" or "TV Show". Additionally, "Show Name", "Season Number", and incremental "Episode Number" can also be set or cleared for each selected track.

Protected files, such as those purchased from the iTunes Store, cannot be changed.

Action shot:

Multi-Item Edit v5.1

For macOS 10.10 and later. This applet will allow you to view and edit most tags (and some additional options) of the selected track(s) in a single floating window using single-edit mode (one selected track) or multi-edit mode, which emulates the pre-iTunes 12 "multiple items" format; that is, a checkbox adjacent to each tag allows you to select which changes are to be applied to the selection's tags.

Can also be used to copy collected tags from one set of tracks to another set of tracks by toggling "Information Tracking".

Thanks to Wolfgang Reszel for the icon.

Action shot:

Multi-Item Edit in action

Sort by Artwork Size v1.3

For macOS 10.10 and later. For users who are particular about managing artwork, this script can write the size of a track's artwork (eg: "600x600") to choice of Category, Comments, Description or Episode ID tag (enabling tracks to be sorted by artwork size in a playlist using the chosen tag) and/or copy tracks with artwork less than or greater than a user-entered size to a new discrete playlist.

Note that if choosing the first option, the chosen tag will be re-written so it is best to choose a tag that is not already in use or not typically associated with a track's kind; for example, use the Episode ID tag (a TV Show tag) for music tracks or the Category tag (a Podcasts tag) for videos.

List MIAs v4.7

For macOS 10.10 and later only.

Also see Music Folder Files Not Added
