Assimilate View Options v5.3

For macOS 10.15 and later only. This script re-creates each selected playlist so its Songs View column settings (visible columns) are the same as the main "Songs" library.

Works with user-created regular playlists only. Please read the accompanying Read Me .rtfd doc.

Note: Unavoidably, Music displays new playlists in "Playlist View" by default. Here's a tip to assign keyboard shortcuts to Music's View menu options that will make changing to a different view quicker and easier.

Action shot:

Assimilate View Options in action

I wouldn't select a whole lot of playlists since I'm not really sure how Music will behave. Start with small batches and then see how life's treating you.

Album Rating Reset v4.4

For macOS 10.15 and later only. This script will allow you to batch set or clear the Album Rating and/or Album Love/Dislike for the albums of the selected tracks or the albums associated with the tracks in a selected playlist (note that only a single track from any album need be selected in order to change the album rating or loved of the entire album). Handy for clearing batches of albums of their user-set album ratings, or re-rating batches of albums.

Action shot:

Be sure to select at least one track of each album for which you want to change the Album Rating.

Track Down Purchases v4.4

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:

Track Down Purchases in action

Rate Me! Rate Me! v6.4

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, Love and/or Dislike for the track can be entered. Features options to display only unrated playing tracks and timer preferences for how soon and how long the panel is displayed.

While you could easily rate the current track from the Music app's icon in the Dock, this script interrupts you and compels you to do so.

Action shot:

Rate Me! Rate Me! in action

This panel will pop up when a new song begins playing. Make any changes to Rating, Love or Dislike for the track and then dismiss the panel.

Latest version:

  • February 20, 2021

Re-Apply Downsized Artwork v4.2

For macOS 10.15 and later only. This applet will examine the artwork of each selected track (or tracks in the selected playlist) and if greater than a user-set resolution (n x n pixels) will downscale the image to that resolution. Artwork already at the set resolution or smaller will not be affected. Includes options to pad image to make square, preserve extant track artworks, adjust preview proportionally and export displayed artwork to disk.
