I use the OS X version of Mp3tag to edit my library of (mainly) ALAC files ripped via DBPoweramp and played/managed via iTunes - the files are stored in the iTunes Media folder on the iMac's hard drive. These include, for example, a significant number of compilation albums which will require many hours of tag correction and additions, and so I'd like to explore whether I could utilise some work lunch breaks to help with that.
Is it at all possible to edit the library on a second machine? My current guess, is that I could back up the iMac directory to an external hard drive, connect that to my work laptop (Windows), edit there, and then regularly re-import the updated library from the hard drive back to the iMac.
As I say, is this technically possible, even sensible, fraught with danger - or indeed is there a more elegant solution? Any advice would be much appreciated - many thanks in advance.
