BWF MetaEdit Description
Multimedia documents come in a wide variety of formats, of different quality and performance parameters. Similarly varied is the capacity to store informative metadata fields and, in this respect, BWF WAV files are among the specialized formats employed for quickly disseminating audio tags. For anyone who has wanted to modify this type of data, BWF MetaEdit provides a viable solution.
Customize technical and standard metadata information
Specifically, one can employ this tool to edit a wide variety of built-in technical, as well as standard metadata fields of source WAV items. Customizable entries include channels, format, bitrate and sample rate information, as well as MD5 stored and generated fields.
The latter items are great options for ensuring source WAV files have not been tampered with, while other data can serve to inform one of the quality of the audio track. Other adjustable core metadata fields include coding history timelines, time references, as well as loudness values and compliance with various industry standards, such as IENG, IKEY or IMED.
Export audio tags to CSVs or XMLs
Once a source document has been selected, a tabular display allows one to adjust most of these parameters with ease. A notable feature is the tool’s ability to batch load entire directories, although it should be noted that only WAV documents can be processed.
New data does not have to be inserted manually, as the application can import metadata information from properly formatted CSV or XML files. Also, when users are done with their projects, output global or individual CSV and XML documents can be created.
A good utility for editing metadata information of multiple WAV files
To conclude, BWF MetaEdit is an intuitive and practical application for anyone who regularly works with WAV tracks, as it allows thorough editing of most metadata fields. Both technical and core entries can be modified and batch operations are also supported.
