Silicon Studios has introduced Beat Tagger 1.0 for Mac OS X (http://www.beattaggerapp.com), a drag and drop app that automatically tags WAV files purchased from Beatport. It requires Mac OS X 10.6.6, costs US$2.99, and is available in the Mac App Store.
Unlike MP3 tracks downloaded from Beatport, uncompressed WAV files don’t include ID3 metadata. Beat Tagger automatically adds these tags to WAV files so that when they’re played back on players like iTunes, Serato, or Traktor the following info appears: Track Title, Album Name, Artist Name, Remixer Name, Genre, Label, Year of Release, and Album Artwork.
Beat Tagger also identifies corrupted WAV files, so that users may re-download within the limited time allowed by Beatport. The app is designed as an integrated solution for music lovers and DJs who purchase Beatport WAV files, and want their music labeled and organized without having to do it manually, says Silicon Studio’s founder, Nuno Pereira.
