I'm looking for an application or command line tool that can batch edit file metadata. I have some audio files recorded using a recorder that was off by 1 hour, and I want to modify the creation date to the correct time.

You can use "touch -mt YYYYMMDDhhmm" followed by your file name/path, of course replacing YYYYMMDDhhmm with your desired date. I recommend typing "man touch" into terminal to look at the manual and different command options there.
