Metadatics vs Yate?


Recommended Posts

I use Yate for years now on several macs and couldn’t be happier. It is regularly updated and has all the features you like. If you have questions they have a very good and responsive helpdesk too. Hope this helps.

Hi Marco

 

I tried Meta and it seems nice. My only draw back is the display. I wish the tracks (files) were in the smaller window and the fields used to edit were in a much larger window. For $25, I wish the trial was longer.

 

Thanks,

Coke

The Editor (sidebar) is resizable up to 600px wide. Fields can be edited either in the sidebar or in the list window.

YATE is a very mighty tool ...

if you know, how to use it.

 

With its automation and regular expressions you can normalize tags to your taste with one click for all selected tracks. 

Lyrics and cover art are easily fetched from the internet.

And so on.

 

It is useful if you know to code a little bit.

I have used both to tag, so far I think Metadatics works well for me. Usually, I don’t fetch anything from the internet with the tagging app. I generally use Album Art Exchange to find images, but Qobuz includes high-quality images with each file. If I use lyrics, I check out a couple different sites to find the closest match. I basically want the program to provide a wide range of features. I like the way Metadatics allows users to easily add custom tags.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head:

Right now, I really don’t have the time to learn Yate. And I am not a coder. It does seem like a good program, but it seems to need a quick-start guide. I can figure out the simple stuff pretty easily, but to learn the true value of the program, I would have to buy it.
