Meta tags for AIF files

    May 10 2015 | 1:41 am
    I'm looking for a way to write meta tags to Aif files. I know there's a metatag object but it can't write to Aif.
    I see that is able to write id3 tags with Aif files but I always get 32 bit floating point files as output while I need them in 16 or 24 bit.

      No one?

      You say it's possible to write ID3 tags to .AIF files? I'm sorry I can't help you with your bit dilemma, but could you explain how? I've been trying but I can't seem to figure it out.

      Have a look at the help file of It can write ID3 .AIF but coded only in 32bit.

      Is a Max 7 object? I'm still on 6 and I seem to only have, which doesn't even seem to work correctly in the help file concerning ID3 tags. I get a lot of errors of the sort "doesn't understand 'getid3album'", etc.
      But first I should ask if it's possible to get the tag information without having to load the whole audio file. That would be essential for me, as I need to scan a lot of files quickly and compare their tags.

      Yes, it's a Max 7 object.
      I did those tests some months ago but there were no problems in getting the tags but, if I remember correctly, you'll need to open it in
