If you’re a musician, DJ, or music enthusiast, chances are you care deeply about your music. Meta helps with every aspect of managing a digital music collection, and saves you time when you rip vinyls or download music from third-party stores.

Key Features:

- Batch Editing of Tags & Cover-Art
- Batch Cover-Art Adjustments (scale, crop, compress)
- Batch String Transformations
- Batch Compose Track Numbers
- Find Tags & Hi-Quality Album Covers Online
- Find and Replace Text, Words, Regular Expressions

Broad Media Support

Meta supports all popular audio file formats such as:

Customisable Interface

Meta allows you to define tag-panel (sidebar) configurations: groups of tags you want to edit most often. Just pick which tags to display in each setting, and name it. You'll then be able to switch between each layout at will and edit the tags associated (ex: Publishing, Classical, Podcasts…).

Fast, Clean, Reliable

Meta is a native and robust macOS app powered by Taglib, a trusted and proven open-source tagging engine. Edits will be mostly instantaneous, and there will be no need for manual saving: what you see is what you get.

Beautiful App

Came across it by accident recently and was blown away by the amount of features packed into it. Everything I was looking for could be achieved with a little bit of digging around in the app. If you need to do anthing with meta tags, this can probably do it.

Great App

In the latest update the author added the feature that I was waiting for most, a batch processing function allowing you to resize all the artwork in your collection to the desired size and format. Having thousands of songs in my collection this feature saves me countless hours of manual processing, having discovered that some of the image files were taking up over 5 mb of space in the m4a file, my collection is now about half a gigabyte smaller than it used to be. Good work :)
