Yate overview

Yate was developed for people who want complete control over their tagging experience. Supports audio in AIFF, APE, DFF, DSF, FLAC, OGG OPUS, OGG VORBIS, M4A, M4B, MP3, MP2, MP4, STEM.MP4, WAV and WV files. Supports video in M4V and MP4.

Yate has a long list of features; most importantly, an innovative scripting system called actions. Actions can be used to update all of an album's tags with a single operation. Yate also supports integration with AcouticBrainz, AcoustID, Beatport, Discogs, iTunes, MusicBrainz and TMDb. All changes can be easily reverted and individual changes can be undone in any order. Whether you want to automatically or manually tag your files, Yate can do it all!

This app is just way too complicated, even for an experienced user such as myself. I much prefer using Tag Editor which brings-up all the info spreadsheet style for easy viewing, thus allowing the user to swiftly delete all unnecessary fields; either manually or by search-replace. It's a 'jump straight in' app. I don't have the time or the patience to spend months trying to figure-out Yate.

I bought this application years ago. Reviews told me that this is the best tagger. First i realized that without reading the help pages i could not figure out how to do anything with it. As an experienced user, confident about my skills and very familiar with tagging my music , i put it to the side to pick later. Several times i did and came to the conclusion that I hate the User Interface. It has not improved a bit during the last years. Surely you can do a lot with Yate but the developer should focus not only on features but if not on looks at least on usability.

Does it have the ability to perform file relocation operations on items in a folder other than music files? For example, in Tag & Rename under Windows, I could do something like convert a file structure that looks like \Music\Genre\Artist\Album\01 - songname.flac into a single folder layer like Music\Genre - Artist - Album\01- songname.flac by including the folder layout in the rename files from tags expression. It works, but only for the music. If you have jpegs, logs, pdf's, or anything else in the folder with the music, that all gets left behind in the old folder structure. It would be great if there were a way of rebuilding the folder structure of a library based on album level tags, and have the file relocation include all files in the folder with the album, so nothing gets lost by rebuilding an entire folder structure. This would be such a big improvement over simple file renaming.

I'm looking for a tag app that can extract data from the file name for tag fields (i.e. the date) but Yate seems not able to do that. MediaRage can, but its horrible UI makes it an annoyance rather than a pleasant tool. So I have to continue looking, pity as Yate looks promising.

Can any user please advice if the current Yate is reliable in repairing a crashed library where some hundred files lack tags all together, several other hundreds are faulty and many are in fine shape? Does it work equally well on any format like ALAC, AIFF, WAV as well as MP3?

I use Yate for almost three years and consider it the best tag editor available by a large margin. The set of features is impressive. You can use it just for the basic tasks (normalize artist name, album, genre), add artwork (with customizable search criteria) or edit even the more obscure information (beyond the average need but fundamental for serious library management). Renaming files from tags and vice-versa are easy to make. Renumbering track is just two clicks away. List of artists, composers and genres could be recorded from the changes you do. Even the play counts or private info, not editable in iTunes, can be changed in Yate. The app is fast and stable even for large collections, and it can handle iTunes database with direct linking and adding. About all tasks could be batched through easy-to-make actions, all saved with a very convenient export/import preferences option. Developer keeps a frequent update policy, with continuous improvement and quick support answer – although you will rarely need it. Some users say the interface is subpar. I disagree: Yate is clean and all usual controls are logical and intuitive. Maybe just the advanced field panel (where you can normalize capitulation, do find and change, trim or add strings) seems a bit clumsy. Anyway, it is functional and powerful. If you want to keep an organized music library, Yate is a great choice.

Tried so much tagging softwares. Yate does the job, flawlessly, specially on my NAS with more than 25000 mp3/flac/alac/aac files. Can tag, insert album front cover, insert so many informations, even connect to musicbrainz, etc... Deserves every buck. Thanks to the developer !

Great feature set. Easy to use. I personally think a lower price tag (10$) would make the decision to buy it easier :-)

Anyone use Yate for tagging their Sample library files? I need some workflow ideas there. I use Live 9 as a DAW, which is great, but I'd prefer an independent Sample Library system.

I had been using three or four other apps to handle my FLAC library workflow but recently I wanted to tidy up all metadata and artwork from my entire collection, around 39,000 tracks. I contacted the developer, Barry, and he confirmed that Yate could handle what I wanted to do. He even provided script files for one of the actions I was setting up and the three actions I eventually executed in batch mode literally saved me hundreds of hours of effort! Whenever I ran into an issue, Barry was quick to provide a new build. I also like the fact that this stable app is Cocoa-native. If you're meticulous about maintaining tags on a large library of audio tracks, I would give this app serious consideration. I'm really glad that Yate can handle ALL my library maintenance tasks going forward.

Very good app that handles everything you can throw at it due to its flexible scripted actions. Might look intimidating at first but once you get used to it, it is very powerful and easy to use. Only the UI is a little clunky, but this is something that can be safely ignored due to the app's capabilities.
