iTunes 12.7.1 Available

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 11:11:26 +0000

Apple has released iTunes version 12.7.1 (build and it should be available from the App Store. Apple hasn’t mentioned any specific enhancements, features or fixes.

Bug or Feature: Downloaded Playlist Not AppleScriptable

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 11:43:15 +0000

iTunes 12.7 introduced the “Downloaded” playlist that can be made accessible in the Library section of the Sidebar. Ostensibly, this playlist contains all the tracks you have downloaded in one way or another from the Apple Store, iCloud Music Library and Apple Music. Unfortunately, the Downloaded playlist is inaccessible to AppleScript. The following script should […]

Update to an iTunes that Syncs Apps and Ringtones

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 11:47:32 +0000

Apple has somewhat relented to criticism about removing Apps and Ringtones syncing in iTunes 12.7 and has made iTunes 12.6.3 available with these abilities. iTunes 12.6.3 will install over iTunes 12.7, unlike the non-trivial process previously required to downgrade back to 12.6.2. I suppose that for people who felt ambushed by installing iTunes 12.7 and […]

Plays and Last Played Sync Sometimes

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 20:06:15 +0000

Probably shouldn’t have to keep checking what syncs and doesn’t with iCloud Music Library. Looks like Plays and Last Played Dates are still an issue. If I play a track on my iMac, the Plays and Last Played date update as expected. The same track on my MacBook Pro does not increment. If I play […]

UPDATED: Dupin v2.12.2

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 19:05:54 +0000

There was a bug with Dupin running under High Sierra that distorted the buttons in a Purge dialog and made them somewhat un-responsive. I hadn’t seen this in the 10.13 betas so I wasn’t expecting any issues when the final release of 10.13 came out this week. Luckily, an alert Correspondent let me know about […]

Camelot Codes to Keys

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 13:05:08 +0000

For a brief time, back when I was radio DJ, a station I worked at experimented with using “key segues”, whereby a recorded sounder would transition from a song played in one key to a song in another. Thus: Song in C fades -> sounder transitions from C to A minor -> seg next Song […]

NEW: Apps By Apple ID

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 15:18:32 +0000

Now that iTunes 12.7 no longer manages iOS apps, you’re left with a “Mobile Applications” folder containing the apps iTunes has been backing up for all these years. For most users this folder can be Trashed after updating to iTunes 12.7. But if your Mobile Appplications folder contains apps purchased with multiple Apple IDs, you […]

Considerations When Updating to High Sierra

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 15:26:41 +0000

If you perform a clean install of the operating system, an “iTunes” folder will not be created in the user “Library” folder nor the local “Library” folder (the one at the top level of the startup disk). This has been the case since at least macOS 10.12.2. Do not confuse this “iTunes” folder with the […]

Drag From Audiobooks Fixed in iTunes 12.7

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 12:16:19 +0000

I may be the only person who cares about this, but iTunes 12.7 fixes a very long-standing bug that prevented dragging tracks from the Audiobooks library to another app, say Join Together. Thanks!

Playlist Description in iTunes 12.7

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 11:03:26 +0000

I really like that you can add a description to playlists. In iTunes 12.7, now that “Edit Playlist” is gone, it’s even less obvious how to do this than previously. In iTunes 12.7, make sure a playlist is in Playlist View (rather than Songs View or Album View, and so on). Right-click anywhere in the […]
