AppleScript Applet for Music

Sundry Info To Comments v5.1

For macOS 10.15 and later only. Copy your single choice of filename, file path (location), file's parent folder path, file creation date (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS), current playlist, volume adjustment, start time or stop time (HH:MM.SS), artwork size (WxH), purchaser name, purchaser account ID or encoder (if accessible) to choice of Category, Comments or Description tag of each selected track. By putting data in one of these available tags it can be visible and sortable or used with Smart Playlist criteria.

I've kept the word "Comments" in the title of this script for legacy purposes, even though modern versions of it can write to other tags.

Action shot:

Choose the information to use (left) and then choose the tag of the selected tracks to copy it to.

AppleScript Applet for Music

Playlist Manager v3.3

For macOS 10.15 and later only. The Music app only allows one playlist to be selected at a time. This applet can perform common useful tasks on a multiple selection of playlists: playlist title renaming (add text, remove text, search and replace text) and duplicate, delete, export, move and merge playlists.

This app is free to try full-featured in Demo Mode. While in Demo Mode, only up to 10 playlists can be manipulated per launch. 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.

Action shot:

Tools in the Rename tab operate on the selected playlists.

Track Titles With Incremented Number v2.0

This script sets the Title of the selected tracks (or every track of a selected playlist) to a user-configured substitution string using tag variables for the current title [name], track number [tn] and track count [tc], episode number [en], episode ID [ep] and position in the selection order [n]. For example, a string such as "Better Call Saul - Season 1/[en] - Episode [ep] - [name]" would render "Better Call Saul - Season 1/3 - Episode 103 - Nacho", and so on.

Also see Increment Number Tags.
