If you are converting your CDs or Vinyl music into digital files, you will need to give the files track names, artist names, and album titles. Below are some options for doing so.
- The process is very similar in iTunes on Windows
Metadata is used by applications like our Music tool to help organize a library of music. It’s optional to add metadata, but you’ll have a better experience if your files have it.
There are multiple ways to modify the metadata of a music file. And most music files support metadata information in some form or fashion.
- If you are on a Mac, the fastest and easiest way to modify audio track metadata is by first adding it to the Music app. Then click on the song and select “Get Info.”
Here, you can edit a ton of information about a song. This data will be written to the file after clicking OK.
*If you select multiple tracks and then do “Get Info,” you’ll edit all tracks at once, which is a faster way to add some data like artist and album name.
- You may also be able to add metadata from Apple’s music database. If importing music from a CD, the program will prompt you about adding track details. Make sure metadata is added to your tracks before adding them to Wisephone. If you purchased the music online, it likely already has this data.
On a PC, you can follow the same method as above for modifying metadata using iTunes. However, there are other ways as well to write metadata.
From File Explorer
- Select a track or tracks you wish to modify. Right-click and select “Properties” from the menu.
- Go to the “Details” tab and type in the information you wish to update. When you are complete, hit Apply or OK.
