Batch metadata of an entire music library

Hi guys,

I’m new to wavelab, and am using it for mastering purpose.
But I just realised it could very well fix one of my recent music experience issue.
I moved from the Google Play Music player, where I uplodaded my entire library of music in the cloud, to a NAS + Plex to manage my media library.
Plex use a company called allmusic.com to fetch and match metadata, but it’s a bit rubbish when it comes to genre and style classification, but there is a way to bypass that and use your local files meta data instead, which in my case is probably not clean.

Has anybody tried to batch process a massive file to change the genre metadata in bulk?
I have 1 300 artists, 10 000 albums and 118 000 tracks, of course the process would be per genre / sub file (I have 28 in the file hierarchy).

Thanks!

I would not recommend to do this with Wavelab, but can’t explain why

you can use mp3tag instead

and there is no solution for automatic “genre tagging”
this is always a mess

Right.
mp3tag seems to be Windows only, any recommendations for mac users?
