Proper English Title Capitalization v3.3

OS X 10.10 and later only. Capitalizes the first letter of each word in your choice of the Name, Artist, Album Artist, Album, Composer, Grouping, Movement, Work, or Show tags of the selected iTunes tracks, but based on rules of title capitalization in the English language. Thus, "what it feels like for a girl (above and beyond 12'' club mix)" becomes "What It Feels Like for a Girl (Above and Beyond 12'' Club Mix)". Two user-editable Exception Lists can handle words that should not be title-capped or modified. Dry Run feature enables you to see what would be changed via Console.app log messages from the script.

Action shot:

Tracks Without Embedded Artwork v1.5

For macOS 10.10 and later only. MP3, AAC and ALAC audio files have the capability to store artwork image data internally as metadata, thus allowing artwork to "travel" with a file. This applet will examine the files of the selected tracks (or tracks in the selected playlist) for artwork metadata. Eligible audio tracks whose files are capable of embedding image data but do not contain artwork metadata will be copied to a new discrete playlist.

iTunes-assigned artwork may not necessarily be embedded as metadata. Pre-ID3v2 MP3s do not store image data. This applet does not affect how the Finder may or may not display a file's icon image.

To embed artwork to tracks' files try Re-Embed Artwork or Re-Apply Downsized Artwork.

Action shot:

Tracks Without Embedded Artwork in action

Quickly scans the files of the selected tracks or tracks in the selected playlist.

File Renamer v3.5

For macOS 10.10 and later only.

Show In Playlists v1.7

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This stay-open applet runs alongside iTunes and detects when library tracks have been selected and then displays a heirarchical list of the playlists containing the selected track(s) (a live-updating version of iTunes' "Show In Playlist"). Can also be set to monitor only playing tracks. Clicking a playlist in the list chooses it in iTunes--and if a single track had been selected then it will be selected in the chosen playlist. Additionally, the monitoring routine can be toggled off temporarily so that the current list of playlists remains fixed yet still selectable.

Action shot:

Show In Playlists in action

The playlist containing the current track selection is colored blue.
