AppleScript Applet for Music

Delete Empty Playlists v4.1

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only. This script will list the empty user-created playlists in the Music app and can delete all or just a selection of them.

NOTE: A bug in the current version of Music prevents the removal of playlists from the Sidebar UI (when they are deleted via an AppleScript like this one) until the Music app has been quit and re-started.

Action shot:

Delete Empty Playlists in action

When one or more playlists are selected, the button changes to "Delete Selected".

AppleScript for Music/TV

Playlist to papercdcase.com v3.0

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only. This script will send tag info from the tracks in the selected playlist (up to 28 tracks) to the website papercdcase.com using Safari.

papercdcase.com is a site that creates a PDF file which can be downloaded, printed, and folded to create a quite serviceable paper CD envelope.

Action shot:

Playlist to papercdcase.com in action

Settings in the script with the results at papercdcase.com.

AppleScript Applet for Music

Convert and Replace v3.0

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only. This script will convert the files of the selected tracks using an encoder chosen on-the-fly (each encoder's current Preferences-set options will be in effect) and replace the original tracks throughout the playlists of your entire library with the newly converted versions. Additionally, you can opt to Trash/delete or keep the original files and tracks.

Action shot:

Convert and Replace in action

Replace occurences of a selection of tracks with their newly converted versions throughout the library. Trash or keep the originals.

AppleScript Applet for Music

Re-Locate Selected v2.0

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only. This script will re-locate the files of the selected tracks from their current location to a single user-chosen folder. The Music app will be updated with each track's new location and all of each track's meta-data will be preserved. Optionally remove the files from their original location. (I don't advise using this on more than an album's worth of tracks or so at a time; re-locating dozens of tracks' files to a single folder doesn't seem to make much sense to me.)

NOTE: If your "Keep Media folder organized" preference is set, you will not be able to create new folders or re-locate files in the Media folder; outside is OK.

Action shot:

Re-Locate Selected in action

Re-locate the selected files with options to Trash the original files or keep them in their current locations.

AppleScript Applet for Music/TV

Multi-Item Edit v6.4

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.

Action shot:

Multi-Item Edit in action

Access most tags of a selection of tracks in a single window. (Sorting tags are accessible via togglable panel.)

AppleScript Applet for Music

Scan For Double Entries v3.0

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only. This applet will scan your Music library for pairs of track entries that--very strangely--point to the same file and then copy those tracks to a discrete playlist for further examination; presumably you'll want to remove one of the faux pair tracks without Trashing the single associated file.

More about this issue is here.

Action shot:

Scan For Double Entries in action

Progress during the scan.

AppleScript for Music

Copy Track Info to CD Tracks v2.0

Music has a "Replace Existing" option when users are re-importing CD tracks to replace existing tracks. The problem is that Music will only allow this option if the ID3 info for the CD tracks and the current Music tracks is identical. This script writes the writable info from selected tracks to the info of a CD; when you re-rip, the CD track data is already the way you want it.

AppleScript Applet for Music/TV

File Renamer v4.4

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only. This script will rename the files of the selected tracks (or the files of the tracks in the selected playlist) using a substitution pattern that you formulate from the tracks' tag data. Optionally, export a copy of the files to a chosen location and rename the files in that location.

Note: This script works best when used with tracks whose files are stored outside the Media folder or if Music is not set to "Keep Media folder organized".

Action shot:

File Renamer in action

Clicking the "?" button displays a Help window listing available track properties that can be used.

Protected files, such as those purchased from the iTunes Store, cannot be changed.

AppleScript Droplet for Music/TV

Compare Two Playlists v4.2

For macOS 10.15 Catalina and later only. Quickly compares the contents of any two playlists and displays the tracks that are common to both or the tracks in one playlist not contained by the other. Has tools to copy or move tracks from one playlist to another or delete common tracks from one or the other playlist. Can optionally create a text file report of these comparisons.

Free to try in Demo Mode: While in Demo Mode, several features will be disabled. An in-app purchase of a registration code will unlock the disabled features.

To purchase a registration code, download and launch the app. Click "Register..." in its File menu and follow the prompts to purchase a code for $1.99. When your payment is processed, you will receive a registration code that will unlock the Demo Mode restrictions.
