[prMac.com] Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - Silicon Studios today is proud to introduce Beat Tagger 1.0 for Mac OS X, their new drag n' drop app that conveniently tags WAV files purchased from Beatport. Unlike MP3 tracks downloaded from Beatport, the higher quality uncompressed WAV files do not include ID3 metadata or artwork. Beat Tagger identifies the tracks and adds these tags to the files so that when played back on players like iTunes or DJ software like Serato, Traktor, Virtual DJ, etc., the following info can be displayed: Track Title, Album Name, Artist Name, Remixer Name, Genre, Label, Year of Release and Album Artwork.
The app also identifies corrupted WAV files, so that users may re-download within the limited time allowed by Beatport. Beat Tagger is an integrated solution for music lovers and DJs who purchase Beatport WAV files, and want their music labeled and organized without having to do it manually.
* Easy drag and drop operation
* Adds artwork
* Identifies corrupted WAV files
