Yate 3.1 Build 3408

A powerful yet easy to use Mac application designed to help you create a comprehensive metadata database for your audio tracks.
Yate is an easy to use Mac OS X application that offers you the proper tools for tagging and quickly organizing your music collection. The app is able to work with MP3, M4A, AIFF, WAV, DSF, and FLAC files, and you get to import tracks for processing, or simply link items from your iTunes music library.

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.

What's New in This Release:
  • The context menu for most field types in editing panels now have a Multi Field Editor... item. Selecting the item will display the Multi Field Editor with the field type selected.
  • The context menu for field types which support multiple items had a menu item called Multi Item Editor. The menu item name is now the actual display name of the appropriate edit panel.
  • On Yosemite, the highlight colour for the Editing Panel's preset buttons has been changed to reflect the the system's highlight color (as displayed in the main window file list). The white text on a light gray background was too washed out.
  • The Musician Credits and Involved People fields are now internally stored as displayed. This will make no difference to you unless you have written actions to directly parse the fields. The external format used to write the data to audio files has not changed nor has the user facing representation of the data. Note that the fields are automatically formatted when saved to files removing blank lines and extraneous whitespace. The fields can now be directly edited on any editing panel where they occur. The fields have a new option to format the data. This is essentially a UI based implementation of the Format Credits action function.
