Track Down Purchases v4.2

For macOS 10.15 and later only. This applet can examine the Music library and sort audio tracks purchased from iTunes into discrete playlists by either the purchaser's name or Apple ID (eg: "Purchased by Jane Smith" or "Purchased by janesmith@email.com") which in turn will be placed in a "Purchaser Playlists" playlist folder.

Free to try in Demo Mode: While in Demo Mode, the number of tracks associated with each Purchaser will be reported but sorting tracks into playlists is disabled. An in-app purchase of a registration code will enable playlist creation.

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 restriction.

Action shot:

Delete Empty Playlists v4.3

For macOS 10.15 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.

If you like it you can purchase a code for $2.99 which will unlock the Demo Mode limitation. Launch the app and click "Register…" in its File menu to make an in-app purchase.

Apply Embedded Artwork v1.1

For macOS 10.15 and later only. This script will examine each selected track's local file for image metadata and apply it as the track's album artwork.

There may be a bug in the way the Music app updates the media library from iTunes which results in "artwork-less" tracks, despite the existence of image metadata in a track's file. This script will try to rectify this for a selection of tracks. Read the Read Me.

Merge-Delete Playlists v6.0

For macOS 10.15 and later only. This script will allow you to merge the track contents of two or more playlists to a new or existing playlist or delete any number of playlists at once, including Smart, Genius, and Playlist Folder playlists. The merge feature will prevent the same tracks that may appear in different source playlists from being duplicated and has an option to delete original playlists. The delete feature only deletes playlists; tracks, of course, remain in the library.

This app is free to try full-featured in Demo Mode. In Demo Mode it will only process 5 playlists per launch. If you like it you can purchase a code for $1.99 which will unlock the Demo Mode restriction. Launch the app and click "Register…" in its File menu to make an in-app purchase through PayPal.

Action shot:

Merge-Delete Playlists in action

About to merge the selected playlists to a single new playlist. The tracks in the selected playlists will be copied to the target playlist.

Rate Me! Rate Me! v6.1

For macOS 10.15 and later only. This stay-open applet watches your playing tracks and when one begins playing displays a notification-sized panel whereby a rating for the track can be entered.

Re-Embed Artwork v3.1

For macOS 10.15 and later only. This script will export then re-import the artwork data of the selected tracks obliging the Music app to embed the artwork in the track's file's meta-data.

For best results, use with an album's worth of tracks--or so--at a time. Music may be obliged to perform a number of background tasks when applying image data and may prevent the script from proceeding if a large amount of data is involved.
