List MIAs v4.4

OS X 10.8 and later only. This applet checks your entire iTunes library for missing and presumed dead tracks--those tracks that iTunes is unable to associate with a file and which are listed in iTunes with a "!"--and can create a text file listing these tracks by last known File Path (if available), Song Name, Artist and Album, which you can view using TextEdit.

Also see Music Folder Files Not Added

To find and delete dead tracks see Super Remove Dead Tracks.

Action shot:

Track CPR v2.4

OS X 10.8 or later. This script will assist with associating replacement files with a batch of dead tracks. iTunes can perform this task, too, but only one track at a time.

The script will attempt to locate existing files (recursively) in a user-selected folder that have the exact same filenames and extensions as the missing files of a selection of dead tracks. Thenkl, you can determine if the found files are viable replacements for the missing files and the script will perform the replacement. Replacement files remain in their current location and will not be copied/moved to the iTunes Media folder.

This can be a delicate operation. In addition to the must-read documentation included with the script, I also suggest you read what I've written about using this script here.

Action shot:

Track CPR in action

Checkmarked tracks will have CPR applied. (Additional screenshots are in the read-me PDF.)

Tracks Without Embedded Artwork v1.3

OS X 10.8 or later. 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.

Multi-Item Edit v4.8

OS X 10.8 or later. This applet will allow you to 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

Edit most tags of a selection of iTunes tracks in a single window. (Sorting tags are accessible via togglable Drawer.)

Make Playlists By Tag v2.3

OS X 10.8 or later. This applet will create new Music track playlists based on each selected entry of a specified tag. That is, create individual playlists for each Artist, Album Artist, Album, Composer (or their "Sort" siblings), Genre, or Year.

A good companion to this applet is Merge-Delete Playlists.

Action shot:

Make Playlists By Tag in action

A new playlist will be created for each checkmarked entry and will contain Music tracks--in this case--whose artist tag is the same as the entry. The red-colored entries are already playlists.
