Yate 3.2 Build 3562
Well structured music tag editor that can deal with various types of metadata
Yate is able to import metadata for your tracks from online sources, such as MusicBrainz, or Discogs, but you can also manually edit each entry. The app enables you to change the credits and album details, the artwork, the lyrics, allows you to store private characteristics, such as the owner or the purchase price and so on.
The best part is that, if you link items from your iTunes library, the changes will be reflected almost instantly within the media player. This is very useful because you will be able to organize your tracks by different criteria with minimal effort.
Automate the database management by using actions scripts, and share your tagged tracks with your friends
Yate comes with a collection of over 100 actions scripts that can be easily employed to streamline certain tasks: the app comes with a small collection of actions already integrated with the app interface, but you can easily create new ones by using the predefined functions.
For your convenience, Yate offers you the possibility to export your current project in order to be able to share the newly created metadata database with your friends in no time.
Straightforward software solution for tagging audio tracks with minimal effort
Yate offers you the possibility to create a comprehensive metadata database by quickly importing information and even artwork from online sources. At the same time, the app enables you to store personal details, such as the purchasing info, your private ratings, can memorize if you want to skip the track when shuffling, and so on.

- Warning if you are on Yosemite and use Dropbox, please make sure that you go to Dropbox Preferences - General and uncheck 'Enable Finder integration'. While this will get rid of the fancy green check marks in the Finder it will also stop crashes when displaying File Open or Save dialogs. Dropbox will still operate normally. Thanks to the folks at Dropbox for describing the work around at this link.
- Feature Request: Added the ability to identify multiple occurrences of files and potential duplicates in your collection. The functionality is available from within Track Databases. See the new help topic Duplicate Identification Using Track Databases for more information.
- To go hand in hand with the new Duplicate Identification Using Track Databases feature, the database Query system has been enhanced. Queries with the same Key and Data columns now eliminate the redundant Key names in the results. As opposed to only allowing the path to the file as accumulated metadata, you can now accumulate any single column. Examples can be found in the help for the Duplicate and Query processes.
- Feature Request: If you want the ability to replace files on an open while in Playlist Mode, you can enable the functionality via the new Preferences-File List-Allow Playlist Replace Open Mode option.
