Save Album Art to Album Folder v6.4

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only.

AppleScript Applet for Music/TV

Multi-Item Edit v6.7

For macOS 10.15 and later only. 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.
