Welp, after my last post on the subject and emails to the author of Sample Tagger, I broke down and whipped out the C#. After a bunch of hours, I have this:

bradwavbrowser2

It indexes a directory tree on the left, shows any .WAV files that are in it on the right when selected. Selecting a WAV file plays it (or you can hit the play button). And you can drag and drop the files into any audio application I’ve tried (Ableton Live & Sound Forge). Next is library saving and tagging I guess.

Can I also say how freaking annoying it is searching for Microsoft development related documentation and tips and examples on the web? Let’s see, first there’s the difficult-to-search-for terms: C#, .NET, ADO.NET, etc. Then there’s all this other crap that gets in the way like ASP.NET, .NET being available in a billion different languages (C++, C#, Visual C++, Visual C#, Visual Basic, J#, etc, etc) so even if you do find what you want, it’s probably not in the right language or platform. Frustrating.

Not for nothing, but that’s one of those things that’s built into Mac OS X. You can do everything you just listed in OS X’s file browser “Finder.”

Here they do it with a .pdf, but it works exactly the same, and just as well with .wav or any other sound file, like .mpgs.

Awesome Brad! I’m pretty jazzed about it…does it fly ok with Cubase?

well mate, seems like this software ain’t an option. If you want fast and easy tagging give this one a try: . First, it’s free. Never used it but it’s highly rated and an alternative to those guys paying for an apple which has been already bitten upon ;D Another alternative is MediaMonkey which covers the same features like this funny Applesoftware every1 uses… ah whatever…. Just my 5cent for someone who really enjoyed your music and got a bit surprised ’bout ‘bad sign’ (how the hell did he know i felt like….). Anyway. I loved your new record, thanks for that, you enriched my musical experience :D
