Make Bookmarkable v3.0

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This script will change the file type of the selected AAC tracks to "M4B " and file extension to ".m4b", thus making them bookmarkable.

Ratings, play count, last played date, skip count, and skipped date are preserved.

Artwork as Album Folder Icon v1.1

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This script can be used two ways:

When run as an Applet, it will use the assigned artwork from the selected tracks in iTunes as the icon for the folder containing each track's corresponding file in the Finder--presumably, this is the file's "Album" folder.

When launched as a Droplet--by dragging one or more folders to its icon--it will examine every folder (at all depths) for the first audio file in any folder that contains image metadata and use that image as the icon for the that folder.

Action shot:

Artwork as Album Folder Icon in action

Select a playlist of tracks or a batch of specific tracks, click OK and watch as each artwork image is applied to the file's folder.
Or drag-and-drop folders from the Finder that contain audio files.

Latest version:

  • April 28, 2018
  • Adds drag-and-drop for folders

Side Splitter v1.0

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This script will copy a selection of tracks (presumably the tracks of a particular album) into separate user-designated "album side" playlists and place these playlists in a distinct Playlist Folder. The script will then ask to play each playlist "side" one at a time, pausing after each one until you accede to play the next one (as might occur with an actual record); optionally, can delete the Playlist Folder of "sides" when complete.

Action shot:

Side Splitter in action

Just designate where a "side" ends with a checkmark. Each "side" will be rendered as a playlist, labeled "Side 1", "Side 2" and so on, and placed inside a Playlist Folder.

Make A Text List v5.0

OS X 10.10 and later only. This script will display an alphabetical list of your choice of the Albums, Artists, Album Artists, Composers, Genres, Groupings, Shows, Movements, Works or Track Names in a selected iTunes library (Music, Movies, TV Shows, and so on) or playlist. This list can then be saved to a text file.

This script used to create a text file of selected tags in the entire iTunes library only, but I have kept its old (and perhaps less-descriptive name) for legacy purposes.

Action shot:

Make A Text List in action

Select a tag and library or playlist and the script will display an alphabetical list of your choice. The list is exportable to a text file.
