A Powerful Batch-Editor

Working with Meta is remarkably simple, because its layout is quite intuitive: It presents as a list of files, and a sidebar.

The sidebar mirrors the contents of the currently selected files, so that edits performed there will be applied across all selected files, instantly.

Find tags & album covers online | with Tag Finder for Discogs

Find tags and album artworks online thanks to the Discogs online database.
Filter results by media type (CD, Vinyl, File, Cassette…) and apply changes in a single click.

Find hi-quality album covers online | with Cover Finder

and specify your preferred image size (Normal, Large, XL).

Artwork Editing

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

Compose Tags, Filenames, Directories…

Rename Files

Compose a file-name pattern and rename each file according to its internal metadata.

Create Directories

Compose a file-path pattern, with slashes as folder delimiters, to organise files in sub-directories.

Extract Tags

Extract Tag information from file names, file paths, or other metadata, by matching it against a pattern.

Find & Replace Text

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 command.

Customise Meta, to fit your needs

Create as many sidebar layouts as you wish to fit your preferences and needs. Simply select the tags you want to see displayed in each category.

You will then be able to switch between various layouts (Publishing, Classical, Podcasts…) at will.

Easy Editing

Meta's sidebar features editing interfaces that help you with the input of some of the more complex tags, like with Multiline Text (Lyrics, Comments…), Tempo (BPM), or Dates (Requiring ISO8601 Formatting).

Tagging Preferences

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.

To input Cyrillic, you will need to use ID3v2.4 encoded with UTF-8 or UTF-16.

Broad Media Support

Meta supports all popular audio formats such as mp3, mp4, m4a, m4b, m4v, aiff, wav, flac, ogg, oga, opus, spx, dsf, dsdiff, and writes metadata formats ID3v1, ID3v2 (v2.3, v2.4), MP4, Vorbis, INFO and APE Tags.

Talks to your Music Library

Meta has built-in support for the Music, iTunes, and Doppler media libraries to help them staying in-sync when you make changes in Meta.

macOS Native

Built with care for great user experience, Meta embraces macOS standards and best practices, and features time savers like drag & drop, quick-look and more, so that you feel right at home.

Fast, Clean, Reliable

Meta is powered by an open-source tag engine called TagLib. Edits will be mostly instantaneous, and there will be no need for manual saving: what you see is what you get.
