Yate 3.0.1 Build 3353

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 version 3.0.2 Build 3353
  • There is a new main table column for the Initial Key field.
  • There is a new Discogs option to use Artist Name Variations (ANVs) for artist names, when they exist. More information can be obtained in the Discogs Preferences help.
  • There are two new metadata elements which can be saved from Discogs: Artist Name Variations and Artist List. Artist Name Variations stores a list of key-value pairs associating artist names with ANVs. Artist List stores a list of all artists. This will be the same as the Artist field if the Combine multiple value items into a single value option is not enabled. A more thorough description of these new metadata elements can be found in the online help for the Discogs Wizard Release panel.
  • id= album entries in the Discogs and MusicBrainz wizards are now placed in the recent items drop down menu.
