Segregate Shufflable Tracks

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 16:06:26 +0000

A Correspondent queries: “Do you have a script that can create a playlist of songs if they have the “Skip when shuffling” attribute ticked in the info panel? The reason is because when I sync those songs to the iPhone that feature doesn’t sync along with it so they play regardless. The feature works on […]

Exporting Voice Memos

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 16:01:16 +0000

A Correspondent asked how to deal with Voice Memos when the Voice Memo track in iTunes is named using the text that was entered after recording it and its associated file is named using a date and time format. Specifically, he wanted to offload and archive some of the recordings but was concerned that the […]

iTunes 12.7.2 will detect if an optical drive is available on the system and if one isn’t, you won’t see the CD Actions settings in iTunes > Preferences… > General. Kirk has posted more details at his blog.

iTunes 12.7.2 Available

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 00:46:52 +0000

Apple has released iTunes 12.7.2 (build I’m not aware of specific fixes or features. They’ve also posted macOS 10.13.2, which seems to resolve the problem with displaying album artwork as the file icon for audio files.

Internet Radio Streams Playlist

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 15:40:19 +0000

I recently swapped receivers (or, I should say, amplifiers) in my office. I was using a decent mid-priced Sony receiver to power two zones of speakers: a set of Bose 301s and a “near-field” set of cheap desktop speakers and sub-woofer. I replaced it with an unused Onkyo amp I had purchased a few years […]

NEW: Remove From Other Playlists

Sat, 25 Nov 2017 21:21:04 +0000

Remove From Other Playlists will remove the selected tracks in the selected playlist from every other user-created playlist, such that the selected playlist is the only user-created playlist that contains them. The track entries in the Media Library playlists (Music, TV Shows, Audiobooks, etc) will not be affected. And, perhaps obviously, the script cannot remove […]

Album Artwork in the Finder

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:24:28 +0000

I have seen some observations on the interwebs that some AAC and MP3 files are not displaying their artwork metadata as the file’s icon under High Sierra 10.13.1. That is: the file for a track with assigned artwork in iTunes displays in the Finder with a generic audio icon rather than the album artwork. If […]

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 […]
