Apply selected CD's CD Text to its disc and track tags

For OS X 10.10 and later only. This applet will attempt to extract the CD Text information from the selected audio CD in iTunes and apply it to the CD's disc and track tags.

Some commercial CDs and commercial CD burning software (including iTunes) can use CD Text as a method of including text data on an audio CD. This data can include Artist (Performer), Album, Composer, Track Title, and Genre info. See the Read Me for more information.

Action shot:

CD Text to CD Info in action

In this example, all the tag data (except Year and Disc Number, which I supplied) are derived from the CD's CD Text.

Latest version:

  • November 13, 2016
  • Adds convenience feature to export current CD Text as an XML property list file
  • Removes intro caution about sort order; track order is now determined by track number
  • Minor maintenance
  • This versiion is for macOS 10.10 and later only
