Since the switch from Windows to Mac, I've been looking for a good music tagging application for Mac OS X.

I've tried apps such as Tagalicious, TriTag and a few other apps, but none have made me happy so far. Basically I'm looking for something similar to Mp3Tag (which is Windows only).

Just asking before I consider starting an open source project and do this on my own.

what type of tagging you want? to correct Mp3 ID3 tag? – Am1rr3zA Mar 22 '11 at 15:09
Yes. But it would be awesome to be able to edit tags for any other format too (e.g. FLAC). – pt2ph8 Mar 22 '11 at 15:18

I've mostly used TriTag or temporary AppleScripts like this:

tell application "iTunes"
    repeat with t in selection
        --set AppleScript's text item delimiters to "-"
        --set ti to text items of n
        --set track number of t to item 1 of ti
        --set artist of t to item 2 of ti
        --set album of t to item 3 of ti
        --set name of t to item 4 of ti
        --set name of t to (get track number of t)
        --set name of t to my titlecase(get name of t)
    end repeat
end tell

on titlecase(x)
    do shell script "ruby -Ku -rubygems -e 'require \"titlecase\"; print' <<< " & quoted form of x without altering line endings
end titlecase

on replace(input, x, y)
    set text item delimiters to x
    set ti to text items of input
    set text item delimiters to y
    ti as text
end replace

on split(input, x)
    if input does not contain x then return {input}
    set text item delimiters to x
    text items of input
end split

Thanks, but perhaps it is not much more convenient than using a dedicate application? – pt2ph8 Mar 23 '11 at 9:09
