Tag Editor for Mac can help you to clean up and organize iTunes library just in few steps:

1. Drag files from iTunes in Tag Editor.

If some iTunes tags, such as Rating and Plays, are not shown in Tag Editor, import them from iTunes using ‘Edit’ > ‘Load Tags” > ‘From iTunes’ command.

If files have not been imported to iTunes before, open them in Tag Editor first.

2. Tag files.

Tips on tagging files for iTunes:

  • Mark a compilation album of songs by various artists as ‘Is Compilation,’ and enter something like “Various Artists” in the ‘Album Artist’ column. It will prevent the various artist compilations from being split into multiple identical albums in iTunes.
  • For non-music media files, such as a podcast or an audiobook, choose the corresponding value in the ‘Media Kind’ column.

3. Save changes.

We recommend checking all changes with Quick Look before saving. If the changes are correct, press ‘Save’ to embed them into the files.

4. Choose ‘File’ > ‘Export To’ > ‘iTunes.’

Choose a playlist or type in a new playlist name in ‘Export to iTunes’ dialogue window. Press ‘Continue.’

After exporting from Tag Editor song info should be updated across all iTunes playlists, which contain the song.

If you need to make further changes in exported to iTunes metadata, start with step 1 again.
