Just been through new Mac purchase/setup and DEF felt mp3tag would be an even better experience if there was a total settings export/import feature.
Also just realised there's no bit depth column ie 16, 24bit and that would be really useful as we move to more lossless codecs and cheaper storage and save me guessing by looking at the bitrate.
Thanks though, still use your app every day.
Here is the documentation about how to customize the file list:
Mp3tag supports flexible tagging, which means that the tag fields available on the Tag Panel on the left and as columns in the File List are not fixed. While you can reference any field which is, e.g., listed in the extended tag dialog as name via a placeholder %name% in Mp3tag, it's also possible to customize the UI using these placeholders.
Customizing the Tag Panel
The Tag Panel is the sidebar on the left of the File List that shows the fields to enter metadata. Besides the standard field…
which means that you can add a corresponding column yourself.
You find the available placeholders also in the documentation:
Mp3tag uses format strings in various of its features to describe the structure of file names and imported data. A format string is built of either standard text (e.g., Music), placeholders (such as %artist%, %title%, ...), or slash characters / that usually denote directory structures.
Characters with Special Functionality
Some characters have special functionality and need to be treated with extra care. If you experience some unexpected behavior when using format string, check if some of t…
It's probably %_samplerate% or %_bitspersample%
Do you mean from one Mac to the other? It's on my list — thanks for your feedback. And regarding the new Mac purchase, just to be sure: you can use Mp3tag on as many of your Macs as you like.
%_bitspersample% which was missing from the documentation and I've added it now,
Thanks ohrenkino and Florian for adding the string!
I couldn't get the bitdepth to reflect in the tag panel (which is fine), but success in the file list!
And yes, Mac > Mac.
Yes, such technical information fields begin with an underscore
%_ and are read-only. They are available in the
File List, but not in the Tag Panel.
Great, File List only works for me, glad I wasn't missing anything.
