NEW: Reset Tracks v1.0

The Music.app has a "Reset" button in the Details panel of each track's Get Info window which will re-initialize some track properties such as Plays and Skips. This script allows the user to choose which of several additional Music.app tags to reset to initialized states, which can be selectively more or less thorough than the Music.app's Reset action. Also see the slightly more aggressive Reset Plays.

iCloud library users should note Apple's "Bug-or-Feature" whereby changes to these tags don't always proliferate correctly if at all.

Latest version:

  • Initial release
