Manage your digital music collection, with ease.

Advanced audio metadata “Tag” editor for macOS.

If you’re a musician, DJ, or a music enthusiast, chances are your care deeply about your music library. Meta helps you with every aspect of managing a digital music collection, and saves you time when you rip vinyls or download music from 3rd party stores…

Meta v1.6.8 — Requires macOS 10.8 or later

Meta supports all popular audio formats such as: mp3, mp4, m4a, aiff, wav, flac, ogg, oga, opus, spx, and writes metadata formats ID3 (v1, v2.3, v2.4), MP4, Vorbis, INFO and APE Tags.

Native, Customisable Interface

Working with Meta is remarkably simple, mostly because its layout is very intuitive. You can view: tags, audio properties, file information and artwork information.

Editor View Configurations allow you to customise which tags you want to view/edit.

You can then, quickly switch between configurations, like common tags, advanced, sorting, podcast-related, etc… depending on your needs.

Powerful Batch Editing

Most of the changes you do will be aimed at multiple files — like setting missing album artwork. Meta's sidebar allows for applying changes to a selection of files, instantly.

Smart Artwork Editing

Album artworks are easily set or replaced by dragging images to the artwork view. You can adjust existing images on-demand (scale, crop, compress), and configure Meta to automatically adjust new images upon adding, in order to keep your audio files size to a minimum.

Pattern-Based Operations

Rename Files

If you're aiming for consistent naming of your music files, Meta's Tags to Filename feature will be of great help: Specify a pattern and automatically rename each file according to its metadata.

Create Directories

In the same way, you can move and organise files in subfolders automatically, using the Create Directory feature. Each slash in the pattern will be interpreted as a folder delimiter.

Extract Tags

The Filename to Tags feature allows you to match text in filenames, and store it as audio metadata. Regular expressions or Escape Tokens can be used to filter-out unwanted text from the Tags.

Generate Track Number Sequences

When it comes to editing albums or compilations, you don't want to be manually assigning each track number. Thanks to the Track Numbering assistant, you just need to arrange tracks in the desired order; Meta will do the rest…

Find & Replace

Find and replace text, words, or regular expressions in the Tags, using the native text finder interface.

Perform text replacements iteratively or in a single go using the replace-all option.

Utility Popovers New in 1.6!

Meta's sidebar features utility popovers that help you edit specific tags like: Multiline Text (lyrics, comments), BPM (tap tempo), or Dates, so you don’t have to worry about writing ISO8601 Date Formats!

Multiline Text

BPM: Tap Tempo

Dates

Customisable Tag Engine

Metadata preferences allow you to choose which type of metadata formats will be written to your files. Different versions of the ID3v2 format are available.

For example, if you're running a version of macOS before 10.12, the Finder will only be able to read ID3v2.3 Tags. Or if you input text in Cyrillic, you will need to use ID3v2.4 encoded either with UTF-8 or UTF-16.


iTunes-Friendly

Once you're done editing in Meta, you can add the files to iTunes or refresh the changes, using a single command. Meta can also autocomplete on-type using data from your iTunes library.


Built for macOS

Meta was built with care for great user experience. It features everything you would expect from a decent Mac App, including time savers like Drag & Drop, QuickLook, and more…


Fast, Clean, Reliable.

Meta is powered by TagLib: a well-tested, open-source tagging engine. Edits are instantaneous, and if you make a mistake, you can always undo your changes.
