--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A user on the VortexBox forum alerted me to the existence of a Mac OS X version of mp3tag: http://www.mediafire.com/?6h3gy13fvalq7

It uses wineskin to run mp3tag-2.48.

I updated the app to use mp3tag-2.49b: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6229594/MP3Tag.app.zip

It seems to work fine on my Mac Pro running OS X Lion.

I hope Mac users find this useful.

EDIT (Mar 28, 2012): Mp3tag v2.50 is now available as a Mac OS X app. See post #8 in this thread: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showpost.php?p=698081&postcount=8

Hi
I started to play around with setting Replay gain tags on my FLAC music collection but found the results hugely disappointing. Using Smart Gain as an option in Squeezecentre I played a selection of tagged albums. When replay gain values were calculated in setting the tags I was getting values of anything between -9db (eg Adele's '19') to +2db (for some classical).
Although I was prepared for lower volume levels (and changed the amps volume control accordingly) the resulting tracks seem utterly lifeless and the sparkle all gone.
So now I'm thinking of removing the replay gain tags and going back to standard settings.
Using the described, modified MP3 Tag facility, what's the best way of going about this for a large number of files ? I can see that using View / Ext Tags and then editing I presume I can simply remove the value under the Replay Gain entry. But this would take an age - is there a way to bulk remove the RG tags ?
Thanks

As a starter you could just untick the gain options in sbs/lms it then they won't be used and thus can not affect playback.

Fasted way in mp3tag load up all files open the extended tags dialogue mark all rg tags for deletion press ok ?

Before any large scale tag manipulation take a backup.

I agree with mnyb. Why remove the tags. they are not used at all unless you tell the player to use them in a player setting (sbs, lms, or some other player).

Ok, this is probably a silly question but i'm new to OSX (just switched from a PC) and was wondering how I can get this running on Lion? I downloaded the file and tried to install it but when I click on the MP3tag icon it just keeps bouncing, never opening. Any help would be appreciated!

I have created a Mac OS X version of Mp3tag v2.50, which was just recently released. You can download it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6229594/Mp3tag-v2.50.app.zip

This app was created on OS X Lion 10.7.3 using Wineskin Winery 1.4 with the latest Wineskin Wrapper (2.5.4) and Wine Engine (WS8Wine1.5.0). I have tested it on my Mac Pro running OS X Lion 10.7.3 and it seems to work as it should.

I tried to get it to work in the past using wineskin, but was unsuccessful. Good to know people have succeeded in doing so. I'm using Parallels Desktop for some other WIN-applications too, so that's what I'm using at the moment to run MP3tag.

I just don't understand why there are so many win mp3/flac renamers available and no (good) apps for mac. Every time I asked this question, the answer was "just use iTunes for that, it'll do everything you need to do". No it doesn't... :)

MP3tag is just so much better.

I think what you meant to say was:

Are there any step-by-step instructions to install puddletag on OSX? I'd find that really useful and be most appreciative if there were such a document that you could point me at.

Alternatively, try this:

gimmie a break, there was nothing wrong with what i said and i don't need to be schoolmarmed by some old maid with their obnoxious finger wagging. and in fact, i went to his site and looked and didn't see what i was asking for on his site, which i think is worthwhile for him to know in case he wants to consider including it. i also was one of the first early feedback givers to audiomuze resulting in some of the unique features puddletag has today, that mp3tag doesn't.

so here's a clue for you: get your rocks off cajoling someone else.

Would it be possible to to publish a bundle created as described here:
http://sourceforge.net/apps/phpbb/puddletag/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=42#p231

That would make it a lot easier for Mac users who want to give puddletag a try. A lot of Mac users aren't used to install stuff through the command prompt, they generally just want an application bundle they can click on on drag to the "Applications" folder. If I understand the above linked thread correctly it will accomplish exactly that.

Looks like that might be worth a try, for a native app on OSX.

I still think I'll stick with mp3tag for now as I have a few macros set up that do stuff automatically for me.

Most of my library consists of whole album FLAC files with separate CUE files. Using Foobar under Windows I was able to use Explorer to select all the CUE files and drag them into Foobar in order to manipulate the tags for my whole library. What I liked about tagging this way was the fact that the FLAC files themselves were untouched, and saving each of the small CUE files was a lot quicker than saving the corresponding FLAC files would have been, particularly over a network.

So far I've been unable to find a Mac OSX app that will work on CUE files. Do either of the above mentioned apps have this facility? Is there another app that can import CUE files into a tag editing interface? I'm aware that Foobar can be run under Wine/Parallels etc, but I've always found it too slow to be practical for working on a whole library when used this way.

Hi everyone,

As a long-time Windows user of MP3Tag, I was excited to find this thread and a port so I could use it on my Mountain Lion Mini.

Unfortunately, it's missing a critical feature vs. the Windows version: it can't access/see my network share, where all my music resides. It seems to only be able to see what is on my local machine.

Is there any way around this, or update that could provide this functionality?

have you mapped your network share to a letter drive on your Mac (e.g., E:\). If you haven't try that.

Gary, OS X doesn't use the concept of drive letters, but it seems as though Wineskin takes care of that for us. When I start this Mac version of mp3tag and use 'File' -> 'Change directory...' the browse window shows all my mounted drives as subdirectories of Z:\Volumes.

The key seems to be to get the drive showing up as a Device (in the left panel of the Finder). I did this by browsing to the machine with the drive I wanted (e.g. 'Finder' -> 'Go' -> 'Network') and then just double clicking on the drive. This made it show up on the desktop and under the list of Devices, and then it showed up in mp3tag under Z:\Volumes

This was the key right here. My shares where there all along, but I would have never know to look under Z:\Volumes.

A lot of Mac users aren't used to install stuff through the command prompt, they generally just want an application bundle they can click on on drag to the "Applications" folder. If I understand the above linked thread correctly it will accomplish exactly that.

I created an article in the VortexBox Wiki showing how to install puddletag on OS X: http://info.vortexbox.org/tiki-index.php?page=puddletag+on+os+x.

This procedure uses the MacPorts package management system, and creates a command-line version of puddletag that can be invoked from the Terminal app.

I also tried to create a puddletag.app using the guidelines in the above Puddletag forum thread, but the resulting app was not able to display cover art embedded in music files. My efforts to fix this have so far been unsuccessful. See the next-to-last section of the VortexBox wiki article for details.

If you want to try the app, which cannot display embedded images, you can download it from
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6229594/puddletag.app.zip. All the other puddletag features should work.

Note: I built puddletag.app on OS X Mavericks 10.9.3. It does not work on Snow Leopard (10.6). I think you need at least Lion (10.7) or Mountain Lion (10.8) to run it.

Great work Ron, I really appreciate it.

I downloaded the latest version, and am running 10.10. Every track is listed twice, when I open up a folder of FLACs.

Does this also happen with previous versions? Does anyone else have this problem?

Never has happened before, and I have been using your port (and MP3tag via Windows) for a long time.

Please see attached.

I don't see duplicated FLAC tracks when I run Mp3tag-v2.64 on my Mac Pro running OS X Yosemite 10.10. I wonder what's different about your setup?

I notice that in your duplicated tracks, only one has tags, the other shows no tag info. Seems strange.

I also see that Mp3tag-v2.65a is out; I'll create an OS X version for that and see if your problem persists.

Thanks Ron. I actually just ordered a new Mac Pro, which I plan to set up as-in, no migration. So, I'll know if I have the same problem, running similar hardware to you, in about a week.

Ron, I found the problem. What is AppleDouble, and why does Mp3tag see it?

The dot "." before the file or folder means that this directory is hidden on most *nix systems meaning Linux and OSX . You might be able to see what’s there using the shell .

For some reasons mp3 tag OSX app does not respects this ?

Something weird about the apple fork files . This is beyond my competence but having used files from older Mac's you sometimes see extra files created by the OS with the file meta information .

You could try deleting all .AppleDouble folders in your music library (start with one folder first) and see if that fixes your problem.

Great news! This completely(!!) fixed my .AppleDouble issue. I was never able to successfully run a command line code to remove it, where v2.64a could not see it, still.

Thanks Ron for your help with this, and also to Mnyb for the links and attention to this issue.

Glad things are working with the OS X version of Mp3tag-v2.65a.

FYI, to remove all the .AppleDouble folders from your music library, open Terminal and enter


cd /Volumes/3TBWDG/Music
find . -name .AppleDouble -exec rm -rf {} \;

Thanks again, and I'll give that command a shot.

I am super excited to have found this thread. Although I have Jaikoz on my Mac, I'm more comfortable with mp3tag. I have a couple dozen custom actions. I know where to put them on Windows, but where would I put them in this compiled mp3tag/wine environment?

Try putting the .mta action files in

/Applications/Mp3tag-v2.66.app/Contents/Resources/drive_c/users/Wineskin/Application Data/Mp3tag/data/actions


(presuming you have installed the app in /Applications/Mp3tag-v2.66.app.)

Yes, that did it. Thank you!

This is going to make editing and maintaining my tags so much easier (and faster now that I don't have to send .flac across my WiFi network; now I'm just restricted by disk I/O).

Hi Ron,

Latest version doesn't seem to work on 10.11 El Capitan. Any chance of an update?

Latest version doesn't seem to work on 10.11 for me either.

Yep, I gave up on this, although Ron had a great run of it!

I ended up going with Metadatics via the OS X app store. This is very easy to use (unlike Yate) and has nice functionality. The price of $10 was perfect for me, I'm pretty happy I now have a stable solution for tagging.

Thank you, SamS, for the suggestion of Metadatics! It actually reminds me a lot of mp3tag in it's layout, and so far it works similarly. Plus, I find it much easier to edit files on my server from my laptop. With mp3tag I found myself having to Share Screen with the server, and using the application on that machine.

Best OSX tagging tool I've found to date.

Excellent! I'm still enjoying it as well.

Thanks for the tip - I bought it as well and it really works very
nicely.
