I want to be able to metadata from a collection of Broadcast Wave files from a folder, create a database of the results and then select and play relevant files based on a keyword. I’ve not done anything like this with Max before so thought I’d ask for some pointers. Is it even possible to get .BWF metadata into Max?
I’m quite sure there are softwares on the market designed especially for what your looking for. Soundminer maybe? But they may be a bit too expensive…
I think your JS code might be a bit over my head, but thanks for the offer. I do know Soundminer, and while it’s a great program it still won’t help me to get the details of my sample library into Max. Unless I’ve misunderstood.
Your suggestion did give me some ideas though. There is a free program by Sound Ideas called metadigger which can create text files containing details of file path, name and the metadata description. I’ve attached a sample.
Do you think I could create something searchable using this data. Perhaps with dict?
